Montale Ristretto Intense Cafe Reviews

From Fragrantica - "While I really liked Intense Cafe, I didn't get any coffee in it (the smell of a latte doesn't qualify as a coffee smell to me), and what I was after was the smell of black, roasted coffee.  I definitely got it in Ristretto, and while it may not last forevcer - it's not a base note, mind you, and I suspect coffee just can't be one - it is totally worth gettign Ristretto over Intense Cafe if you're looking for that black coffee vibe. I absolutely love this fragrance!"

From Basenotes - "Ristretto does address this criticism of the original—namely, that for its name, the original Intense Café lacks coffee. However, the coffee note in Ristretto is subtle, to my nose—not a boastful, dense, dark-roast or espresso but rather a latte, a medium-to-light, semi-milky note that mixes seamlessly with the vanilla. Still, the rose and vanilla remain prominent and constitute the majority of the experience, but it’s perhaps, say, an even split among the three main accords, as opposed to the vast majority of the original being made up of the vanilla and rose (and supporting notes) alone, vs. the coffee."
