A hint of poetry defines the Beat Cafè fragrance, gently evoking folk rhythms and youth protests. An olfactory melody as warm and sophisticated as Bob Dylan’s music, drenched with Beat Generation’s provocative spirit. The fragrance, composed by master perfumer Dominique Ropion, exudes the fervor of these iconic places – the cafés, a symbol of this generation. The scent plays with cognac, tobacco and leather notes, all enlivened by a spicy touch of black pepper and coriander; in the dry down, the composition is wrapped in deep notes of Vetiver and Cedarwood. Beat Café is a polyhedric and multi-faceted scent that evokes the depth of an overwhelming cultural revolution.

Beat Café catches Beat Generation’s revolutionary soul, evoking the scents of these iconic cafés and the intensity of Bob Dylan’s protest songs.
United States, the ‘60s: a cultural movement, fated to change young people’s role in the society, is born. It is the Beat Generation, a creative whirl where art, writing and music become one voice: it is strong, rebellious and determined to change the course of history. This new vision, rising from breaking-off ideals, rejects all constraints and schemes imposed by society: Beat is the call to live a free life and to be fully aware of the moment. The café now is more than just a meeting place: it becomes the no-rules temple of a movement that abolishes every conformism as an imperative. New and clear visions on society, new sonorities and poetry expressions take shape in here, among leather couches, intoxicating drinks and inspiring fumes. A style which expresses itself through live performances and refined songwriting creations, vibrated by acoustic notes of guitar, strengthened by the intimist sound of harmonica. Bob Dylan is the voice of this creative, multifaceted whirl: his lyrics - inspired, intense, sophisticated - are lulled by a charming, poetic and deep sound; it is the unrestrainable voice of a revolution which is soaring through the wind.
Behind the name
Beat as rebellion. Beat as pounding. Self-discovery is freed from taboos, definitions and society constrictions. Café is the iconic place for inspiration, creation and positive dialogue.
Beat Café is a tribute to music, poetry and to the Beat Generation’s lifestyle.
A warm tonality exudes the dimly light atmosphere of the 60s cafés and evokes woody and enveloping scents.
From music notes to olfactory notes
Beat Café is the olfactory synthesis of an inspiring place. Spicy notes of black pepper and coriander are pure and biting like that generation’s protesting. An intense, intoxicating mix of Cognac, Tobacco, Cistus and Leather leads to a dimension of freedom and beatitude, where The Self blends with The Everything. In the dry down, Folk music’s harmonic progressions resonates in a woody-oriental accord where Cedarwood, Vetiver and Benzoin Balm play in unison, giving life to a sound that moves the hearts.
"I wish I could have been there: I can feel the excitement of a new era with a-changin’ that was born among leather couches, spirits and tobacco, intoxicated by the sound of his music. "
