    Default Macassar Rochas

    Are there any fragrances similar to Macassar by Rochas. I like Macassar but can only find a sample, and since it is so hard tro find, I am looking for a similar alternative. Thank you, Sam

    I own some Macassar and I can't think of anything else even close to it. If there is something still in production I'd like to know.
    Oriscent, AgarAura Pure Ouds, Creed, LIDGE, Patou Pour Homme, tons of niche and rare stuff for sale!

    Hey Sam...going after a real heavy hitter I see.

    Try contacting this place. It's a mom and pop owned perfume store in the middle of Beverly Hills that I stumbled into by mistake.

    They may have Macassar. Their web site is a little disorganized, so I recommend calling them. 310-888-8807

    They did have One Man Show too. I don't know that it's scent is like Macassar, but it's the same vein as a very loud, masculine 80s over-the-top powerhouse.

    I can vouch for them in that they are a pretty big reputable store.

    There isn't much out there like Macassar. I do have a 3.4oz in my collection, PM if you want it.

    I find Comme des Garcons Eau de Parfum to be a sweeter (believe it or not) cinnamony version
    Ferre by Gianfranco Ferre is somewhat like a lighter version

    Smelling all three on my arm tells me that these two are similar only by a stretch though...Macassar is just sooooo dark.

    OK...went thru my collection...
    And the winner is: Fendi UOMO.

    The top is very close to Versace Green Jeans, but give it an hour or so and a lighter Macassar shows up.

    Gah! So Macassar is discontinued?? thats a mighty shame! I loved the whole concept...Seems extremely verdant and Oriental!
    I get certain vibes from the color of the liquid...*Strange Yet Ironic* Will love to try it!!

    Cheers and take Care!

    Any updates on this? Just wondering if anyone has since discovered any fragrance that shares similarities with Macassar? I'm really interested in trying this but can't find samples anywhere for sale....I'm just trying to get a sense for what this one smells like, but the reviews are all over the place. I'd pay a pretty penny for a sample. Don't wanna blind buy a bottle.
