    Rush for Men Fragrance Notes

    Rush for Men information

    The male counterpart to last years Gucci Rush for Women. The bottle doesn't look like a bottle, more like a cassette box. The fragrance is woody and has incense and musk notes.

    Genre: Woods

    Too bad this has nothing whatsoever to do with the original Rush, which, with some creative tweaking, might have had some potential as a masculine scent. (All those bitter green notes, you know.) Instead Rush for Men is a flimsy, dry, and two dimensional accord of frankincense and pencil shavings that can’t hold a candle to the austere incense compositions of Marc Buxton or Bertrand Duchaufour. With such a slender structure there’s really no potential for development, and Rush for Men goes nowhere in a hurry. The drydown is just an attenuated extension of the artificial smelling pencil shavings with some laundry detergent musk behind it. Too dull to bother with, if you ask me.

    Aromatic, sophisticated, soft, slightly creamy woods (cedar, sandalwood, to me also a drip of vetiverol) blend with an airy note of incense, then resins, pepper, cumin, white musks, patchouli, lavender and to me, also violet. In its middle stages, just before the drydown, it comes slightly close for a while to some late-'80s "young" fougères like Versace l'Homme, it may be me but I smell a sort of similar earthy-mossy-floral accord, although here cedar and Iso E make Rush far more "contemporary", linear and simple. So far it's nothing really new, but on the drydown it reveals a more interesting personality, as it tones down to a peculiar sort of "aqueous" accord, a sweet and slightly milky-woody blend of the same initial woody notes just drowned in a sort of dreamy, lactescent ambiance - I guess due to the end phases of white musks and floral notes (as I said to me there's also some violet). Quite a fascinating evolution. Nonetheless, this does not make Rush for Men the "masterpiece" its hype wants it to be. It's refined, pleasant, versatile, modern, well made, clean, but not worth the fame.

    I got really lucky and found a big full bottle at a thrift store for almost nothing. Now I understand why the loss of this fragrance is lamented by so many. It is actually one of the most appealing men's fragrances I have ever smelled!

    It is sweet, but not cloying, soft but not quiet. Although often described as an incense fragrance, I thought it mostly reminded me of the smell of freshly split Oak wood, not Cedar or another kind of conifer. All these smells are very closely related, of course, but Oak was my first and lasting impression.

    Some say the smell of Oak has vanilla in it, and maybe that’s the difference... but I’d guess that most folks who like Azarro Visit, Quorum Silver and other woody, incense fragrances would find Rush for Men appealing.

    Visit is one of my every day standards, and I like it very much. But in the end, Rush for Men is very much a fragrance after its own style, and I am so glad I found it!

    Bring Back the Rush!

    The wonderful Gucci Rush for men was such a find for me at the local Maxx but it's been a good six years since I picked it up. Now, down to the last 20 sprays or so, I cling to it with a passion.

    Why in the world Gucci would discontinue this fantastic fragrance is beyond me. Those of us hunting for a truly different scent, evocative of the woods, a campfire, a cool November morning, long for aromas such as Rush. Perhaps it didn't sell well enough. Perhaps too many trashed it as smelling like a hamster cage. Regardless, meanies on a certain resale web site are charging incredible amounts for a bottle, when you can find it on there.

    Shiseido's Feminite du Bois has to fill in for the time being and even that is now discontinued. Tsk tsk.

    Pros: Cedar but not hamster cage
    Cons: Discontinued"

    A harbinger of things to come

    Wood, lavender and patchouli make for a nice opening that has a background floral note. Later a fairly ordinary white musk is added, but the star of the drydown is the sandalwood. I get sandal easily as predominant note for the last 50% of the time of the duration of this fragrance. On my skin it is a very nice, convincing sandal, less creamy that Caswell-Massey's but a bit more intensive than Tam Dao. It lacks the spiciness, but it takes the direction that later led to the great GPH I. Limited projection, and a longevity of over three hours. Good if you find GPH I too heavy.

    Yes, there was a time when Gucci put out sublime and groundbreaking mens' fragrances. This was the early 2000's and you couldn't go wrong buying Gucci. Nowadays, the shrill cry of finance and economics has comprised Gucci's quality into dreck. Rush for Men stands in the shadow of the mighty Pour Homme. It certainly could be classified as PH's flanker. Rush for Men is a bit lighter and has no black pepper. This could be a good or bad thing, depending on your disposition. I find Rush for Men refreshing in its light-incense vibe and always over apply. Is it sadly discontinued and goes for hundreds online. Is it worth the price? No but then again, I paid next to nothing for my bottle years ago.
