Im thinking of blind buying this for a good price. What can you tell me about it? I read that girls love it and the longevity is good. Is it an ok scent for a day in high school and casual wear? Looking for just some overall opinions and comments

I love Rochas Man. I would thoroughly read the reviews on this one (now that they're back up!). It is a terrific daytime winter scent...very sweet though. It smells very sugary with slight coffee and chocolate notes. It's a gourmand for certain...smells completely edible...but not in that over-the-top Amen sort of way. It's very smooth. Just please take it easy on the trigger...it really does work best in light doses. Hope that helps!
Rochas Man is one of my favorite gourmand fragrances... I don't find it overly rich and I think it's a lavender note.. that makes it almost silky/smooth in its feel. I owned Bonds New Haarlem which is very similar to Rochas Man... but I much prefer the cheaper Rochas version. It doesn't possess the thick gooeyness that many of the caramel/chocolate based fragrances do. I almost find it refreshing.. I almost get a slight cholclate/mint note.. if that's at all possible. Rochas tends to fly under the radar in my city... I rarely smell it.. but when I've worn it..it's never failed to garner loads of positive response.
Maybe a little heavy for daytime or for high school, but you can bet no one else will be wearing it. Maybe if you use a light application.
Recommending it as a blind buy is tough (as is any scent), but if you can get it cheap enough...
The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
Each step he takes, the perfumes change
From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
A magnificent chamber meets his eye
A sweet, rich gourmand that's not cloying or annoying.
(Think of it as New Haarlem for one-fourth the price -- that's essentially what it is.)

I bought it because it smelled good in the store and seemed to be in the style of scents I prefer. It's ok, but not great. Sweet, but not warm like I think A*men is. I MUCH prefer A*men to this. I'm nearly done with the bottle of RM, but won't be purchasing it again.
