    Default Absolu or Absolu Intense by Rochas

    Anyone try either one of these? I never hear much about them other than they are a rose floral. The intense is more, well...intense. I happen to like rose perfumes and you can pick it up pretty cheap. Hmmmm...perhaps that is indicator of the scent. Thoughts or comments?

    I just tested this for the first time today. It reminds me of Jean Paul classique; but the lily is not so prominent in Absolu as in JPG.
    I read the reviews in the directory and got the impression that it is a rose scent. I can't detect any rose in it.

    According to OzMoz the pyramide is:

    Top notes : mandarin orange, figleaf
    hear notes : fleur de lys, orangeblossom, black pepper
    base notes : labdanum ciste, toulu balsam, benzoin

    It is classified as an oriental woody amber. I wouldn't mind getting a full bottle of this; it is a lovely scent, not so original maybe; but I prefer this to JPG.
    For the price you can get it, it is a cheap thrill. But the juice is excellent, not cheap at all.

    I just bought a bottle of Absolu, on me it's an orange blossom/amber/woody scent. It's what I wanted Gucci (brown juice) to be.

    I haven't tried Absolu Intense and don't find Absolu a rose scent, but I do like it.

    I unfortunately haven't come across Absolu Intense since it's not available here, but I have Absolu: I bought it on the first sniff when it was still expensive before getting d'd. It is definitely a lily scent, not a rose fume, and I think it's a very classy and sophisticated refreshing ambery oriental well worth getting a bottle

    Thank you, all! Something tells me I will end up with at least a mini of this one. I can't resist trying it.
