Compare it to New Haarlem and Michael Jordan Legend, they all smell about 90% alike. But with NH and MJ you don't get cotton candy because the juice is colored amber and the bottle is clear, you get straight up coffee vibes.
I got mine without a box and had no idea that the box was pink. When I speak of the cotton candy vibe I mean that strictly in terms of it being sickly sweet but without the often delicious smell of caramelise/burnt sugar that comes with the making of the cotton candy. It's a real pity because that element would have been great but instead it reminds me of how cotton candy tastes: pure sugar and sweetness with a touch of artificial colourant.
I haven't smelled either of the other two frags you mention but if they are so similar to Rochas Man I doubt I will like them. I find it hilarious that the name of the fragrance is Rochas Man
when this should be worn by young girls. Having said all that, with the amount of attention this gets by people on this board I will make sure that I retry it when I can get my hands on it in a store. Just to make sure that my bottle isn't irregular.
If you absolutely love pure sweetness then you will like Rochas Man.
