My fetish for fragrances
Roja stands for quality. Roja stands for exclusivity. Also for beautiful flacons. And also for less attractive price tags. And Fetish serves each one of these points from A-Z.

After Reckless, my first Roja, I was curious about the exclusive fragrances this brand still has in stock and tried fetish. And I immediately succumbed to this temptation.

The fresh start is deceptive about what the wearer of the fragrance will expect over the next few hours. Already the colouring of the water (a clear trace darker than Reckless) indicates that it will go here again completely differently to the thing. If lemon and lime are "flown away" (in quotation marks, because with Roja something never flies, but only steps discreetly into the background) the heart note begins to fade with a lot of Neroli impression. I could not hear the violets listed in the fragrance pyramid. And while you're half surprised, half happy about the change from the head to the heart note, a scent thunderstorm comes from behind that will stick to its wearer for the next few hours and catapult him into a league that few perfumes I've owned or tested so far have ever been able to match.
The thunderstorm slowly but surely begins to establish the fantastic base note on its wearer, essentially prominent here pepper, leather, musk and subtly a hint of vanilla. Dark storm clouds pour down on you with this composition, the individual components rain down on you and sometimes more, sometimes less come to the fore. The leather cloud remains above you, lightning brightens the dark horizon and gives you a masculine aura that for some might indeed be too much of a masculinity. For hours, the thunderstorm takes possession of you and makes no move. When you fall into bed tired, you wonder about the steadfastness and even the next morning the first thing you notice is the fetish of the storm of scent.

Sillage and durability as to be expected from Roja, on top notch level. The bottle is simply beautiful. And the fragrance itself is a handcrafted, superbly crafted unicum in the segment of spicy leather fragrances. Reckless is from my point of view more portable and already a statement per se. Fetish is the increase in all respects. 100% male. Uncompromising. An exclamation point for the environment. Everyone within three meters will see you, whether you like it or not. And everyone notices that something special, something special, something expensive is coming. With fetish you stand out. A scent for doers, for winners, for alpha animals. For all those who always get up when they've fallen down. For real guys who run their heads against the wall until the plaster starts to crumble.

Simply for men with a pronounced fetish, no matter for what.

The name of the perfume has always said it all, hasn't it?
...but is that perfume really a fetish? My perfume fetish is definitely satisfied with this fragrance. I sprayed this perfume on myself and the first thing I could perceive was a feeling of joy and perfection. This perfume triggered a storm of emotions in me. Few other perfumes have managed to do this until now. This feeling is simply indescribable. You get this feeling every time you smell this perfume This perfume simply manages to be present all day long. You can always smell it. It has a rule. It transforms. Where in the beginning it's more the "safe word", it develops more and more into a veritable thunderstorm of emotions and feelings. It becomes more and more powerful and intense, like the sexual desire for more. For more emotions. For more feelings. For more fun.
When I smell this perfume I do not think of dark rooms, with the smell of leather. Complete control over yourself. Blindfolds. Restraints. It's more about having fun. The pleasure of what you associate with it. The prelude reminds you of the anticipation. Once that is gone. You're already in the middle of it and you're trapped...

This perfume is truly a masterpiece. A masterpiece like few others. This masterpiece embodies his genius
The sillage is clearly and long perceptible. This perfume is not for someone who does not radiate dominance. This perfume is something for a man who is exactly who he is and what he wants. He doesn't have to wear a beard. He doesn't need a leather jacket. He has a little bit of etiquette. He's charming. He's temperamental. He's calm. You can tell he knows what he wants. He's single-minded. He's drunk and radiates a sense of dominance. But above all one thing: He is self-confident. He loves himself, but only the positive qualities. He does not claim to be the best anyway. This perfume has no age, as Roja Dove himself says: "First impressions count. I always compare it to an elevator door that opens and I see the person. In those few seconds I already know so much about the wearer. Now the perfume has to match this impression exactly. Then it is the right perfume." I think with this statement every perfume can be rated super. You think about it, what story does the perfume tell me? Which wearer does this perfume describe?

Great scent, but unfortunately I can't find an opportunity to wear it....
Fetish pour Homme has recently reached me as a bottling. Normally I am so not the leather fragrance type, but Fetish pour Homme should be an exception here. In my opinion, Fetish pour Homme is not a typical leather fragrance, but a fragrance that works with leather. Leather is indeed one of the main notes, but never becomes intrusive.

Fetish pour Homme has the typical Roja Chypre framework. Here, that framework is even stronger leather, patchouli, resin, oakmoss and labdanum notes. This makes Fetish pour Homme spicier and once again darker than a classic chypre. I go in this review deliberately not further on the individual notes, because these are very similar to the other Chypre fragrances of Roja.

But now we come to the downside of Fetish pour Homme. This fragrance is just not for everyday wear, or enclosed spaces and everyone I have asked has told me that my fragrance stinks, I have also experienced the description of rotten Maggi seasoning. I will not be buying Fetish pour Homme because it would be a fragrance I would wear 2-3 times a year and this one is too expensive for that.

The longevity is over 15 hours with no problems and the silage fills rooms for over 10 hours until it goes down to an arm's length. I think Fetish pour Homme also lasts 20 hours, but I've always showered so after 15 hours so I haven't been able to test the durability and silage for longer.

The similarity to Air Tiger I can not understand. The fragrances have nothing in common for me.

Far More Than Another "M"...
Fetish pour Homme (Parfum) opens with a dash of brief bergamot and lime slightly tart citrus before quickly transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart an emerging cardamom spiced slightly smoky, woody incense-like accord takes command with hints of ginger joining the remaining lime citrus in support. As the composition slowly moves further into its heart, the woody incense gradually recedes as vetiver spiked leather slowly takes over as star. During the late dry-down the vetiver spiked leather remains, now joined by slightly powdery vanilla and oakmoss in the base through the finish. Projection is excellent and longevity outstanding at over 15 hours on skin.

Fetish pour Homme (Parfum) is frequently compared by many to Puredistance M. The vetiver and leather found in the late heart section certainly does have some major similarities to M, coupled with the two additionally sharing a similar spicy structure. That said, those calling Fetish pour Homme (Parfum) pretty much the same composition as M do both a disservice. The key difference (though far from the only one) is Fetish pour Homme (Parfum) features a very strong woody radiant incense-like accord that really is the focal part of the composition for a good portion of its development. So strong was the woody incense in the heart that I really would classify Fetish pour Homme (Parfum) more as a woody composition than the leather most focus on. While M is a more pure spiced vetiver leather play, Fetish pour Homme (Parfum) has a lot more going on as it transitions from citrus to woods to leather to slightly powdery vanilla with each transition seamless. As with the other Roja Dove compositions I have sampled so far, ingredient quality is superb. Also, just like the other Roja Dove compositions the selling price is anything *but* superb. That said, in the case of Fetish pour Homme (Parfum) the quality of the materials and the outstanding end result of the perfumer's skilled execution makes me want to forget about the relatively high cost per bottle and just "bite the bullet" and acquire some of this stuff because it gets pretty addictive, fast. The bottom line is the $480 per 50ml bottle Fetish pour Homme (Parfum) is much more than a duplicate of the great Puredistance M, both proving near equally worthy of owning, earning it an "outstanding" 4 to 4.5 stars out of 5 and a strong buy recommendation if one can afford its admittedly lofty price.

Roja: man of wisdom
if you are looking for chypre, land here. this is exceptional. you can find leather sides, smoky sides, driftwood and something of flowers. citrus opening, of considerable duration. You will notice a lot of changes in Fetish. amber base, smoky of vetiver, and spicy of pepper with the freshness of cardamom. the quality is excellent as is its durability and projection

Initially uplifting and juicy spicy-citric, this gently animalic and dry, spicy-leathery Chypre, settles to a solid spicy earthy-woody base.

Quite an interesting and artistic scent, but it’s not for me. It’s very, very dirty. Almost has a “soil” smell. Smokey and leathery.

Dark Chypre. Citrus in the opening, a pronounced leather. The base is varnished wood, slightly animalic, resinous, earthy and quite smoky.

A nice floral-chypre fragrance, long lasting and well blended, but the price is absolutely ridiculous.
