About 40 Rogue

40 Rogue is a resurrection of the classic Jean Desprez fragrance, 40 Love. It is descibed by the perfumer as "a bracing, fresh fougere with some brief florals and an animalic musky drydown. Very easy-going yet suave and sophisticated."

Reviews of 40 Rogue

It begins with bubbles and sparkly effervescence, up my nose. Slight grapefruit. Loads of basil and tarragon. Barber-shop aldehydic qualities. Big-time mossy-ness. The carnation behaves itself for me, and my preference towards this particular flower. Dark, dark rose. Some furry, animal musk in a layer all its own.
In time, rose and narcissus create a lovely but, masculine floral combination - a floral fog really. Whole thing becomes less dark. Lightens up, like a sunrise.
More moss later.
Overall, Very Good!

This is a revival to Jean Sesprez’s 40 Love Pour Homme. Clearly it has a very dated feel to it. The fragrance opened with a citrusy lemon accord that came off clean and refreshing, I’d say skewed in the soapy realm. There’s two fragrances that came to mind: Orange Spice and Cypres Musc. The citrus accord in Orange Spice does seem similar to the one in 40 Love. The soapy accord in Cypres Musc does seem similar to the one in 40 Love. Ironically they were all fragrances from the same era, 40 Love (1947/1951), Orange Spice 1950, and Cypres Musc 1948. Back to the scent, as the opening notes wore off a substantial amount of musk could be detected with an animalic note. At the same instance floral notes began to creep in. What kind of florals they were I wasn’t quite sure. I wanted to say there was a presence of some sort of herbal note present in the scent. Honeysuckle came to mind of all things. There was a tinge of green and powdery feel at the heart of the scent. Finally at the base I’m left with the lingering musk and animalic accord in addition to what I believed were a dusty amber note and smidge of oakmoss. There was decent longevity with moderate silage early on before staying close to the skin for the remainder of the duration. A very satisfying and comforting scent that was resurrected exceptionally well.
