Montale, Intense Cafe Eau de Parfum
Few scents are so simultaneously stimulating and settling. All the warmth of a beloved ritual, piquant and compelling. Evident in our blood and bones for millennia, we crave it like love, and like love seek substitutes when the real thing is nowhere to be found. Fuel for gods and humans in body and spirit. Born out of dust and water like the myth of primeval man’s creation. It returns to dust to tell our future in an overturned cup.
