Monsieur Rochas Fragrance Reviews

A great old school scent that although made with familiar notes feels, to me, different from the others in my collection.
The blend of chamomile, lavender and oakmoss lend this a warm quality and it feels somewhat cozy like a welcome hug from an uncle or grandfather (maybe my nephew will look back one day and think the same?)
For me this makes a great scent for the cooler months.
Another Rochas winner.

OK I haven't worn this one in decades, now I got the chance to wear it from a defective almost empty bottle I am going to return since it was supposed to be new. I used to love this one a lot but I don't feel I'm getting to the same olfactive notes that I remember back in time, maybe because this is a concentrate version of it and also because it has gone to evaporation process and changed within the years. But well I got a compliment, so I guess it still attracts some.. ;-)

I think the reviewer Catty said it best, this is when you remember your dad, always well dressed, and with a suit and tie on with a blazer with a coat of arms on it. I still have his Blazer and the Coat of Arms has haunted me, as it is written in Latin. I have now become my dad, minus the fragrance though. I remember this in 186 I think. It is a masterpiece of a fragrance. Clean, spicy and I think this shaped why I like cinnamon, and clove notes. They all smell like its a special day. I wish I could get some at a decent price, as it goes for silly money on eBay, having said that some of my fragrances have been silly money, however whilst I could afford this, I think it maybe like a recent Gucci Pour Homme, the Original one, where I paid top dollar for it and it smelt literally of nothing! I don't want my memories of this to be lost. It is like candle you have held for an ex-girlfriend and you imagine her to be that vivacious slim woman with glossy hair and when you meet up with them then you think I dodged the bullet there!

My Father´s signature scent: very classic, intellectual, extremely refined...a gentleman´s scent.

A fantastic fragrance. Well blended. I smell some cinnamon mixed with a fresh citrusy-aldehydic-floral vibe. This lasts over 4 hours on me. It reminds me of Equipage by Hermes.

This is one of my most missed old school fragrances and I had it back in the early 90", is one of the most masculine scents I have worn and yet smooth and refined with finesse to delivered the scent to your sense, very complemented and underrated at its time, long time gone. I would always remember it if I ever sniff it again.
One of the most complemeted fragrance I've ever worn, and I was still a kid in my early 20's, but is amazing the versatility of the juice for fitting a young guy and a middle age and mature or man with that masculine sublime but strong enough scent for everyone to notice without feeling overwhelmed. I miss it a lot...!

This review is for the concentree. Monsieur Rochas is a very direct and aromatic "old-school" fougere with pronounced lavender and relatively conventional bergamot and lemon on top, followed by a pleasant slap of geranium (very green) and carnation (somewhat spicy), which settles twenty minutes later into a chamomile and coumarin drydown, with moss and a brushing of woody musks. The ingredient quality is natural and the note separation is very good, but longevity is abysmal - expect two hours of meager presence before a total fadeout. The start is crisp and fresh, definitely a nice thing to smell early in the morning on the way out to work, and the heart is quite woodsy and herbal, with nuances of vetiver and cedar. Ultimately though there's nothing particularly memorable about the scent, and I much prefer Moustache.

This is a beautiful fougere. Oakmoss and chamomile paired with patchouli. The base is build on vetiver.
A faint scent. Very pleasant.
Pefect for successful evenings or Restaurant visits.
The smell reminds me of Hermes Equipage (also a Guy Robert creation) but this one is better. And also Lancome Balafre has some similar notes.
Rochas Monsieur is a piece of the world of Marcel Rochas.

Would it be possible to have too many of this gem. Nah, I don´t believe so, I just had to get another aftershave, I think I like the AS the most.

This is for the Concentree version:
I have never sampled vintage Monsieur Rochas but have read many positive reviews. I purchased the concentree version last week. A dry, dark and spicy fougere that covers you in a billow of elegance. I get chamomile and nutmeg as the major players while all the beautiful notes get well grounded on a foundation of oakmoss. It starts out being loud but gradually becomes a soft and special fragrance that symbolizes manliness in a perfect way. They just don't make them like this anymore. I really love this concentree version, in fact I adore it.

I get nutmeg, nutmeg and more nutmeg with this fragrance, even though the note is not listed here, (perhaps it's the cardamom I'm smelling).
(I'm referring to the vintage version - not the newer "pink juice" which is a completely different fragrance)
Very spicy. Sensual. Beautiful.

Besides an AS i also have a vintage eau de cologne in a splash bottle.
To me the pinnacle of male perfumes, talk about niche quality.

I had a bottle of this one during my university years. Very good perfume! Masculine, serious, attractive, classy. It kept a nice balance between all those qualities, really shows its creator was a person with a fine taste.
It somehow reminds me of "Pierre Cardin pour Monsieur" another great and (sadly) overlooked fragrance.
This is a smell beyond trends and highly recommended.

This AS is really, really nice, has a lovely herbal/vetiver/oakmoss base that one just has to love.
The opening of chamomile/lavender/bergamot is also rather special. Besides the chamomile it reminds me slightly of an older YSL PH. The sharp blueish coulor I could do without, but who cares with this lovely stuff.

edit: 9,5/10

Review for the reformulated version. A nice opening with aromatic herbs and lavander. I also get some cinnamon in this phase. After a while it turns to a soapy middle phase that's quite conventional and not particularly interesting, yet pleasant. In the drydown I get oakmoss, patchouli and vetiver. Nice and quite classic but maybe it lacks in personality.

Note: The reformulated version of Monsieur Rochas comes in a generic and unremarkable bottle with a shocking pink liquid inside. Ugly.

Rating: 6.5/10

Concentree edition review:

It starts out with a blast of flowers, chamomile and sage standing out the most. Then the scent transitions to a cooling-like accord, almost breezy and calming. I feel i'd put this fragrance in the aromatic fougere category instead. It's a pleasant and classy scent.

Reviewing the vintage version:
A very, very nice classic fougere.
Starting off very crisp, with citrus, bergamot and somewhat lavender before quickly settling into a spicey, herbal oakmoss.
Great for formal occasions or special ones.
A never offensive, strong self confidence scent that I reach for every now and again.
