I thing Rochas MAN
I thing Rochas MAN
I prefer Rochas Man from these two.
If you threw A*men into the mix, then that one would have to take pole position.
I really like B*men, Its different and has a kind of burnt note not sure what that is but I like it.
I prefer Rochas Man.

Both are great frags, but I am intending to make Rochas Man one of my next fragrance purchases, much more likely and much sooner, than B*Man.
I think they are distinct enough to warrant having them both. Especially given the fact that they are reasonably cheap.

Rochas is more boring and less dynamic, safer choice of the two. I really like both.

Rochas. All the way.
I dont think both frags are similar, my vote for rochas man ...
I have A*men and B*men with me...i consider A*men as an amazing scent, while i really hate B*men, some herbal notes them in ,the reason for the dislike
Rochas Man by a mile.
B*Men smells like patchouli and peanut butter to me. Salty & sweet..yuck!
Rochas Man is the smoothest fragrance I've ever come across
Rochas Man (by a distance).

RM is very powerful and simple. Those who like such frags should choose it. B*Men is more complex and "avant garde." It would be better suited to those think in terms of "fragrance art" or some such notion. RM is far too crude for me, and if I tried one spray to the chest now it would probably make me sick. I enjoy B*Men but must be in the mood for it, because it has some "rough edges," which of course one would expect from a frag that seems to have been designed to be "avant garde." Obviously, most people will prefer whatever they conceive of as pleasant or impactful, and because you haven't given us more information there's not much more I can think of to say about it.

B*Men is the best by infinity miles so there. Seriously the superior fragrance, it's more complex with a deep, creamy patchouli and woodsy essence. The dry down is incredible and long-lasting. It's very unique whereas Rochas is derivative and made to please the pallets of the masses. But seriously, they're two different fragrances. B*Men may be the better of the two, but I think both can happily reside in the same collection. It's not like B*Men will taunt Rochas and beat it up for being the inferior cousin. Although I can't say the same for Thierry Mugler himself! Have you seen recent pictures? That guy could bench a city bus. I think he's shooting up A*Men. He probably works out with Carrot Top.
*Edit* I just tried my sample of Rochas Man once again and I think it's just awful! Lui is much better from Rochas. It reminds me of a mix between Lolita Lempicka L and Bulgari Black with the unpleasantness kicked up a notch. The dry-down takes it into foul Corduroy territory. I don't get it's following on this board at all.

Rochas Man - no contest
Rochas Man is boring and simple. Maybe it used to be good fifteen years ago, but not now anymore. Bmen is a strange, and beautiful scent
