my second skin
Rocha's Man I smelled for the first time at a friend of my cousin's.

The scent did not fit him and I asked directly: WHAT IS THAT PLEASE?
He still pronounced the scent wrongly, so that I felt it took me an eternity to guess which one it was, since google did not yet belong to us.
I was 16 and it was my first own fragrance.
What can I say, to get today only with Mueller drugstore, he pursues me nevertheless.
There is hardly a fragrance that harmonizes almost perfectly with my skin, none to which I am often addressed and which rises in such a multifaceted tower.
I don't suppose green leaves or lilies of the valley were here. Coffee, vanilla, musk all the more. After an eternity, raspberry is added, followed by lavender. Also here still light with the vanilla.
Unfortunately, this fragrance also serves a certain cliché...
He is pudirg, maybe a little flashy, ostentatious...BUT... i can't help it, unfortunately over many years one of my signature fragrances, which I certainly bought 4.5 times again

Oh, how beautiful Panama is...
...often it's only when you've been somewhere else that you realize what you have together"

This sentence, which I so gladly borrow from Max Herre for all kinds of situations, is at least as versatile as this great fragrance by Rochas. But as much as I like this fragrance, there was a moment in my younger years when I simply "got fed up". It fits somehow ;).

But as much as I tested other perfumes described as coffee scents, I wanted my Rochas back.
This beautiful entry with lavender as the main note then the fine transition into sweet coffee and even more sweet coffee. Mhhhhhhhhhh... Every nuance of this perfume reminds me of the greatest situations of my late youth. The way home (on foot, of course) with my boys after a night of drinking in one of the many clubs in our old town, summer evenings on the Rhine meadows with everybody, Christmas with the family... But also my first job interview, or being asked about the great smell by fellow students and teachers at the university and vocational school.

In my opinion there are hardly any situations to which Rochas cannot be worn. The fragrance has a long range with only a few splashes, only the durability could be longer. Personally, I think the bottle is very beautiful, only the plastic on top could be replaced by a metal.

In the end, after all these years, this fragrance is still one of my favourite scents and from my rather small and not very high-quality collection, it is clearly among the top 3. I can recommend this perfume to anyone who is looking for a good, extraordinary, recognisable fragrance at a very good price.

I had to love the other one first .....
It must have been around 2000 when I was looking for a fragrance gift for my brother. The perfumery employee showed me Rochas Man. I was taken by the color of the box, tested the scent and was blown away. But wait, it wasn't about me. Was discarded as a gift, not a cowboy scent. And even though Mark Vanderloo was pretty darn hot in the commercials, I eventually forgot about him. That can happen with men.
Then in 2016 I discovered J'ose by Eisenberg, fell in love, bought it, wore it excessively. Since the women's fragrance has a miserable shelf life, with the second bottle the men's version. Since I'd bombed that one to the ground, then the third. And always there was the thought, why does it seem so familiar to you.
Parfumo be thanks, last year I got the head nut. Immediately ordered.
Now I have to write something about the fragrance? The others have already done so aptly. If I compare J'ose and Rochas Man, Rochas has a significantly stronger initial buzz. As they progress, they converge so much that I can't tell them apart after an hour. But when the iron mountain has evaporated, Rochas continues for a while.
I do wear it myself now, but I think a man smelling of it I would .... (is there a chaste synonym for "get laid"?)
Rochas Man, for me the "sighing scent".
By the way, this is the taillight from an old Cadillac, but was a misproduction, was then sold by ship to France (yes, was longer on the way).
Came across now that I find the horny?

More café than coffee
First of all, the more "unimportant" things. In my opinion, the bottle is nice, but not the yellow of the egg either. The previous speakers have already sufficiently described the similarities to certain "toys". The sprayer of the flacon surprised me very much, it sprays itself in contrast to many other fragrances from this price segment very high-quality and good.
Now to the part which probably motivated me to read the review. The scent
This fragrance composition is opened with an interplay of lavender and vanilla, in the first few minutes with an alcoholic touch, which however quickly fades away. Bergamot, which according to the information should also determine the head, but I can't sniff it, well, anyway, it smells good without it!

According to my perception, the scent is relatively linear, which I personally find quite pleasant. The lavender, which is very dominant at first, disappears and a sweet composition of vanilla and amber shapes the olfactory perception. If you take the time to analyse the scent really carefully, the coffee note will also be more present in your own olfactory perception, but I find it rather inappropriate to call the reformulation of this scent a "coffee scent". As mentioned above, the note is certainly perceptible, but rather subliminal and as an underlining ingredient of the rest of the composition. Should a buyer have the same intention as I did at the time of purchase, to smell coffee for the untrained nose of the world around, I don't think he will make the right choice. The "headline" of this review describes this fragrance in a few words quite concisely and appropriately, in my opinion. The buyer gets the experience of a visit in a café, in which not only coffee, but also sweet - and pasta of other kinds are offered. I smell in this fragrance, even if not indicated, for example a subtle honey note.
In Conclusio the fragrance brings much more sweetness and less coffee than expected, how to evaluate this is up to everyone.

I would describe the durability of the fragrance as average. On my skin the scent lasts for about 6 hours, but with the beginning of the 4th hour it loses its sillage and can only be smelled close to the skin, especially in the first hours it smells good to the environment.

Summing up, I would not like to suggest a buy recommendation here, but neither would I advise against the purchase. Depending on how much importance is attached to the actual perceptibility of the scent "coffee", you can either be disappointed or discover a new favourite scent. My search for the fragrance, which primarily smells like freshly ground coffee, will definitely not end here, but I am happy to welcome the "Rochas Man" in my collection!

The original
Thanks to this forum I tested this fragrance for the first time, as I was looking for an alternative to Eisenberg J'ose. Because of Eisenberg's miserable performance I didn't buy it for years, although I liked the fragrance very much despite its somewhat synthetic vein.

Right after spraying it on the test strip I thought: Wow! That really smells like Eisenberg J'ose. Just a teeny bit sweeter in the opening. Personally a little bit too sweet for me, but still everything is fine. I like sweet scents as long as the sweetness is not enormous.

I will not go into the components. Just imagine Eisenberg J'ose with a slightly sweeter opening. That's pretty much it. No big changes in the rest of the course (which I think is good in this case), until the sweetness and later the flowery nuances diminish a bit
The durability is average. It lasts, at least for me, about 4-5 hours. The sillage is medium to slightly strong.

Thank God I found this scent. I noticed that Eisenberg J'ose is simply a worse and more expensive copy of this scent. After all, Rocha's Man appeared earlier. This one will definitely get a place on my shelf.

Sweet & powdery accord paves the way. Then bleeds to drier ground, with light woody and musky undertones, and smells like soft sugary suede.

Chemical garbage. One of the most synthetic "perfumes" I've ever smelled.

Smells like cappuccino, but it's not cappuccino w/ sugar added, it's actually sugar w/ a bit of cappuccino added. Too sweet, linear, boring.

Sweet gourmand with coffee and lavender. The drydown is a slightly synthetic and cloying vanilla. A cappuccino to chill at home.
