Hot Caramel Macchiato
Theodore Cabanels story in perfumery dates back in 1893. Caroline Ilacqua inherited the perfume house and as she states “I want a perfumery that is joyful, uncomplicated, accessible, transparent and clean. A perfumery that makes you smile”. That is exactly what Café Cabanel does. It makes you smile.

This perfume has a very sensual, elegant and charming gourmand smell that you keep sniffing it because you cant get enough of it.

It opens citrusy with lemon and mandarin (tangerine) and at first I was like “did they put another perfume inside? I was promised a gourmand”. After a bit, this intense citrus smoothens up but it never totally goes away, giving the fragrance a slight booziness. Immediately after, the coffee note with hints of cinnamon gets in the game. The coffee, is not the dark nutty coffee we are used to and that is so good because you don’t smell like a walking coffee machine. It is a smooth almost silky coffee note, like the sense of coffee in a caramel macchiato. The milk, butter, caramel, vanilla and tonka bean give a sweetness and creaminess to it, while the florals (Bulgarian rose and heliotrope) add a floral warmth. Overall, all the notes are so beautifully blended together and I get a sweet "boozy-like" gourmand.

The longevity and silage are moderate on me and that’s a bit disappointing because I really cannot get enough of this scent. I had to spray 3 times during a day in order to smell it all day on me. But generally, perfumes don’t last so much on my skin, probably because I m a walking nerve.

I expected this fragrance to be a brown warm sweater, but it turned out to be a white silk shirt.

Thank you for your time.
Be safe and smell great!

Coffee and vanilla puff pastry
Hiya! Here I am again and save the evening with the help of a new commentary. Because while reading these lines your boredom has already flown away and you enjoy the description of a new fragrance from me. And I bet you just had to smile, didn't you? D
I hope that the heat of the last few days (and especially today) hasn't made you too hot, and I found the weather unbearable too, but you know I don't like summer in general, so I curse any weather that is too hot, aaaargh! D

Anyway, today I'm coming to a brand I hadn't heard of before: Téo Cabanel. It's about the fragrance Café Cabanel. Hmm... Coffee always sounds good, doesn't it? Even though I am more of a tea scent fan, I like to drink both coffee and tea. But you know that as a (hopefully) regular reader of mine here anyway, as well as that I occasionally freak out if someone should dare to pour milk into tea... you man, you just notice once and for all: you enjoy tea pure, and coffee with milk! But no, people prefer to drink their coffee pure and black, and the tea milky,... Argh, this is as bad as the current hot weather *sigh* :DD

Anyway, the inspiration for this fragrance comes from French cafés, where you sit outside in wicker chairs at metal round tables in summer and order an espresso. While the espresso is coming, the lady is getting out two of her most vital things (at least according to the description, so don't hit me if it sounds so clichéd :D): Her perfume and her lipstick. The lips are painted with the lipstick so dreamlike kissable and a few sprayers from the scent complete the whole thing, so that the lady, when she has finished her coffee or espresso and leaves the cafe again, leaves behind a sensual aura ... well, something like that!!

The fragrance:
The fragrance begins spicy-sweetly. In the beginning you even smell a patchouli-like, earthy note, but then you smell sweet powdery notes of vanilla, cinnamon, general loose pastries (e.g. pieces with vanilla pudding, so these delicious vanilla puddings, hmmm...) and of course some coffee, although the coffee note is weaker than I thought.
Then there are mandelige notes, therefore I guess here on the Heliotrop, which one can smell well and which also smells well. The coffee is slightly stronger and now also milkier (milky coffee :D)
Later, vanilla becomes the strongest note because you can smell it not only very well, but also because it covers most other fragrances. In addition to vanilla, the heliotrope with its almond notes still smells quite good. A little bit later, the tonka bean is getting through better and better, which, like vanilla, also smells powdery and gives off a (dark) sweetness. Caramel also goes well with the sweet notes and makes you think of these delicious caramel sweets (oh man, this scent makes me think only of eating!!).
In any case, the fragrance later remains sweetish, gourmandig and powdery-soft and smells mostly of vanilla. A very beautiful fragrance that may not offer anything new these days, but is still something very fine because it smells so great.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is quite good, one leaves just this described, sensual smell cloud, which everyone can smell well! The durability is also very good and lasts longer than fourteen, fifteen hours.

The bottle:
The bottle is cylindrical (but I think with a slightly pressed surface) and gold-plated. On it one sees red and black colour molecules as "decoration". The gold-plated lid is T-shaped and carries a red silk ribbon in the lower part. All in all, it's nice.

Soo people, the smell has become really beautiful. The coffee note could have been a bit stronger, because I think the scent goes over to vanilla and the gourmand notes a bit too fast, but well, even then it smells good, among other things even mouthwashing and arousing cravings, when you perceive scents that make you think of cakes and pieces.

Due to the gourmand scent, the perfume has become rather something for autumn and winter, preferably for going out and... how could it be otherwise with such scents to appear delicious! It only gets dangerous when you actually go out with someone and eat a piece like vanilla puff pastry. Because if you have your girlfriend (who is of course not here) with this smell next to you and enjoy delicious pastries, then you wouldn't really know what to bite, would you? Bah,... that was kitschy put, brrrr... :DD

Hey he, anyway, the scent is very worth testing for all gourmand scents lovers (or vanilla fans), the only question is where you can test the scent (I just had a sample of it...). But if you should see it anywhere, just test him! Except not now in the murderous heat, because the scent could be quite overwhelming.

Well, I come to the end and wish you all a nice evening :)
