    Default Monsieur Rochas Dilemma !


    I'm interested in getting a bottle of Monsieur Rochas, but apparently it comes in two strengths: EDC, and EDT.
    To complicate the matters further, there are also multiple versions of the bottles:

    EDC:

    EDT:

    Questions:
    #1: In terms of the smell, what are the differences between the EDC and the EDT?
    #2: Which of the respective bottles are newer?

    Thanks!

    Three strenghts: EDC, EDT and EDT concentrée.
    This is the one I have.
    This is the EDT concentrée. (higher concentration)

    I love the EDT, but never tried the others.

    Thank you for clarifying that Francois.
    I am really curious now as to how they compare scent wise. (Didn't realise that there were three different types!)

    The straight-up EDT is the newest and the least likely to be problematic in terms of freshness and vibrancy.

    I'd be very interested in knowing the difference between the EDT, and the Concentree versions.

    I find the EdT concentree to be quite close to the "standard" version sold in the square pink bottle. Similar longevity, strength, etc.
    But the standard version "warms" to become a bit more floral, powdery and, well, "pink".

    I wore the original Monsieur Rochas a lot in the 70's and received many many compliments on it.

    The current version on offer bears no comparison to the original juice and both offerings might better be discussed as two separate and discrete frags .

    The Original, a 70's version may be, but the quality of the juice would easily have guaranteed it a safe passage in time if those Sad Ones in the 'KNOW' had not reviewed and rejigged it.

    Original Monsieur Rochas, I long to see your Lattice Work embossed bottle again , since I love you, not for what you are but for what I am when I am wearing you..

    Deeeeeeep Sigh..............

    Well, I received my bottle of monsieur Rochas eau de cologne, and it does appear that it has been spiced up -- by quite a bit.
    I too wore Monsieur Rochas in mid-eighties; though I can't recall whether it was the EDC or the EDT.
    Regardless, I distinctly recall that it was much sweeter, and very mild in terms of its spiciness.
    The new juice that I have now is really not that bad (and I'm actually growing quite fond of it), but it's not what I expected.
    Thanks for verifying my suspicion.
