starts off coffee plus maple syrup. My initial introduction to new haarlem was on a test strip in the mall and I wasn't impressed at all. But I ordered a decant and wore it a few days and fell in love. It is my most complimented fragrance so far. Just bought a full bottle and use it when I want to make an impression.
my new haarlem had just arrived, sprayed on it, and its first blast was a creamy sweet and delicious scent. it smells like coffee thats filled with lots of caramel and chocolate. tried it outside in a cold breezy evening and its the perfect time to wear it cause the scent really kicks. It can only be bought in Harrods here in UK, so theres really really few people who wears this bad boy which makes it very special to me. the only downside of it is that it smelled similar to rochas man which I also had.
