    Default Eau de Rochas or Eau de Rochas Homme?

    I have smelled Eau de Rochas (thanks Xmen/Henri) and like it quite a bit. I'm wondering how the homme version compares. Which one is better?

    I have smelled both. For me, the femme version is more luxurious. Does it smell too feminine for a man to wear? No, it's not.

    But, I'd go for the Homme version. It's classy as well, and very lemony in a good way.

    2. A*Men Pure Malt

    4. Nasomatto Duro

    I've never smelled the feminine marketed one, but in all honesty I found the men's a little blah. The feminine one was first and was the real ground breaker. I know some highly regarded members/reviewers have great tenderness for the Homme, but when I smelled it, it just didn't pass Eau Sauvage for me. I smelled it several times hoping it would suddenly click for me, but it never did. With Moustache, Eau Sauvage, Eau de Patou, Givenchy Monsieur, Signoricci, and other early male marketed citruses out there, I never caught Eau de Rochas Pour Homme's flame. The feminine marketed one is the groundbreaker, the PH the derivative.

    I sampled the Femme version this weekend. I found it to be unisex and in all honesty enjoyed it far more than the Homme one.

    I don't like the women's one much.
    The men's is the classiest men's citrus scent I've come across. It lasts about five hours on me - which isn't quite a full working day's worth - but still twice longer than what classics like Eau Sauvage and YSL PH last on me.

    O de Lancome & Acqua de Loewe are better than both.

    Thanks Hil,

    To the "Test List" they go! But out of The two Rochas which would you recommend?

    I notice a lot of basil in Rochas Pour Homme. Something earthy and mineral in it's base that reminds me of TdH. I would give the nod to Eau Sauvage if I were looking for citrus. To my nose I don't smell powerful citrus.

    The Women's is better but it's very bitter and sour both. They both are.

    seconded!

    Even if it would be justified to call the feminine version 'better', I would happily leave it for all women to enjoy on themselves !!
