Reviews of Transat

Fortunately, I finally better caught the particular marine nature of Transat, highly praised by some reviewers.

The Y.Rocher description of the fragrance, on the fragrance web page, “fits the bill” very well. (as of 2014-07-13)

Mystery, salted breeze, music of the sea vastness…

Another nice summer fragrance from Y.Rocher, casual, yet classy and versatile. Very fresh, it exudes just enough sweetness to make it sexy.

Despite its own very original character, it reminds me a little of L’Eau d’Issey, but Transat, at its regular price, sells at a fraction of the price; evidently more so when it’s on sale. Its green and woody sides have some links with Homme Nature.

p.s. I like the shape and color of the bottle that illustrate well the nature of the fragrance. But the font and design of the label “Transat” at the bottom of the bottle are very nondescript and, imo, don’t do justice to the nice quality of the fragrance.

It's like a powdery version of the bright and crystal clear citrus and woodsy Chrome. Floral and transparent, very light and very astringent. It's nice but it's not that great... but it's not bad either. A little different in the "men's" section since it's mostly a podwery floral with citrus elements.

I love the Yves Rocher company because they give great value for your money, so I tend to be a bit biased in their favor. Transat, however, is a disappointment.

Even though I generally don't like acquatic scents, I bought this because it was very inexpensive and I've enjoyed YR's fragrances in the past. But Transat does nothing to separate itself from the other countless acquatic fougeres that preceded it, and in fact is inferior to much of the competition. The top notes are promising, with its refreshing citrus and acquatic freshness, but things fall apart after about 20 minutes, when Transat loses most of its bright freshness and becomes a dull, synthetic, non-descript block of smell for the remainder of its duration. It smells like it's trying to be like Chrome, but unlike Chrome, Transat isn't able to sustain the sunny, cheerful freshness.

Get Chrome instead.

Boring scent. Good for the young guys. But totally forgetable! And it lacks staying power.

Smells like a more virile and long lasting version of the follow up Altika ( or rather the latter is a lighter, sweeter and less lasting version of this ) with good lasting power too. A burst of gentlemanly yet boldly natural crisp herbal essences, with a more complex woody and slightly musky drydown which might have sinned truogh excessive sweetness if it were not for both an icy cooling note but also a more subtle, creamy, rich and lush aloe/ body milk/ " fresh out of the shower" note.

Bought it along with Hoggar. It is a bit similar to Chrome, especially on the drydown. The top note is not the same at all but it's in the same category to Chrome. An office scent - light and comfortable.
