    Default Rochas Man is Discontinued

    I just spoke with Matthew Roben from Parfums Raffy and it is indeed discontinued as of right now. He said that they may start producing it again but the way he talked the company itself doesn't even know what they're going to do yet. This was a favorite of mine at a cheap price. It's a shame.

    It is a shame. I thought it was Rochas' most successful fragrance for men.

    I doubt it. If it's true, though, that's terrible!

    That's what I'm saying. It's such a great and "popular" fragrance...Why would they? ...If nothing else they could sell the rights to another company or something so it could continue to be produced. Mr. Roben did tell me, though, that production had been suspended temporarily...so I really hope they do start producing it again. I picked up some at my local Sephora last night but they only had the 1.7 oz. They were completely out online actually for right now. I really can't see it being discontinued, though, so I'm hoping they don't do it. I suppose I could buy New Harlem but would be paying $180 istead $45.
    --------------------------------------
    I know, I know...I'm a Rochas Man freak, but I just called Sephora headquarters to ask them and a specialist told me that it is of course out right now but it's not showing to be discontinuing or anything. They have more ordered actually and will be available in two weeks she said. .So even if it is being discontinued temporarily, it'll probably be awhile and by that time it may be off-hold and in production again.

    WHEW... okay... as long as it's a temporary break in production, even if "temporary" means months. I'm a big fan of Rochas Man, and I would stock up a handful of bottles right away if production were ceasing permanently.
    Where once there was no scents to it all, now the world opens before me!

    Thanks bsmith001,
    Thanks for letting other basenoters know and giving us advanced warning.
    I have been pleading with basenotes for YEARS to introduce an extra forum for discontinued and rumoured discontinued fragrances. Every time I get ripped apart for even suggesting such an idea. Every year the industry launches well over 300 new perfumes. Not even the largest of department stores have enough shelf space to accommodate the whole range, so every year a lot of, (usually the more interesting ones) are discontinued to make room for the, (mediocre, global, mass-appeal fragrances).
    All the time perfumes are being discontinued, but the fragrance houses are not shouting out " we flopped with this one - it is too individual for the mass global market so we are getting rid of it"
    Which is once again where an extra forum for discontinued / rumoured discontinued fragrances on basenotes would be invaluable.
    Once again thanks for warning us.

    You bet. I just hate to get too excited and attached to a frag if I know it's going to be discontinued and I won't be able to find it anymore. Hopefully this is just temporary but who knows...

    I would think it was the only easily available men's frag from Rochas. Impossible to understand how they make these decisions. Did they ever discontinue any Lacoste or Hugo Boss?
    Anyhow, I will have to get an extra bottle. Just in case.

    Well, I didn't know it when I posted it earlier today, but if someone wants a new bottle, I'm selling one here (pretty cheaply I think)

    I do see your point, but it might be sketchy at best, there are many frags that after being "on hiatus" or being flat-out discontinued, they come back, some reformulated, some (few ones) untouched.
    It would be difficult to list the on-and-off-back on again history of some of this frags.
    As an unwritten rule, nowadays we think of summer frags or the like, as discontinued by next year -but then again, some houses release a "limited edition" summer scent or whatever that comes back next year with only one note (maybe even 2 ) in difference (some Carolina Herreras 212's) or completely unchanged (Lancôme's Miracle summer: only the box changes over the years...same this year)...

    cheers!

    In any case, even if its only going to be discontinued temporaly, I will stock up, actually I'll go tomorrow to my nearest retailer and stock up. I've always liked Rochas Man, a real shame. But, "sh*t happens".
    Have a nice day everyone
