About Rocabar

A contraction of “rug” and the French words “à barres” meaning striped, Rocabar takes its inspiration from traditional horse rugs made in the Hermès workshops, with blue and red stripes on a saffron background.

Rocabar fragrance notes

Reviews of Rocabar

The opening has clean cedar/sandalwood notes for a drier, cooler feel mixed with a not-too-sweet vanilla and something a little warm and spicy. That cool vs warm dichotomy is what makes this otherwise pedestrian scent a little more interesting to me. It's very nice and agreeable. A soft, smooth scent that seems very work-appropriate. Not super-masculine, almost feminine.

Not as heavy as you might think, pretty versatile. There's a powderiness in the drydown that makes me think cool weather only but it's really not that heavy. The year this came out (1998) does not surprise me as it has some modern and classic feel to it. Fits perfectly in the 90's.

Performance is good on my skin. Above average projection with all workday longevity.

From the pyramid I thought this sounded really good, so I got ahold of a decent slug of it in decant form from TPC. I've worn it a few times now and, assuming this isn't a somehow adulterated sample, it is a big disappointment. It mainly hits with a very screechy aldehyde opening and there might be some ambroxan as it settles in. Once these volatile notes evaporate after an hour it has a faint presence of woods and spices. Very little "body" and mostly you get a smell of poorly integrated aromachemicals.

A nice balsamic fragrance, a mix of pine green, woody notes and vanilla. Smooth, creamy, non offensive and distinctive smell.(previous version bottle)
Great longevity on my skin.

If you like Envy for Men, this is along the same lines, as are a few others. I'm not a huge fan of these scents, because they seem to get cloying awfully quickly, especially if you use too much, but I'd rather wear those than most of the recent designer offerings. I'll give it a positive rating because there's nothing really "bad" about it, other than it having a derivative feel to me.

When I think of Hermes I immediately think of soft beautiful unisex and female scents. When it comes to their male scents it seems that they are on the soft side and don't project strongly any uber masculine notes.

Rocabar is a nice inoffensive woody/spicy fragrance, not really hot/spicy or dark/woodsy at all. Projection is okay and I'm not keeping it in reserve for special occasions.

Just does not seem all that special at all. I'm happier with Hermes unisex fragrances for summer and Rocabar for everyday activities.
