I still need to smell this one.
rickbr sent me Globe in a recent package ( yes Rick.....you're da bomb) and I am dumbfounded because this is not only very good, but it smells very similar to Moschino Pour Homme ( which I like very much).
Moschino has a mace note while Globe does not, but other than that, I find these two directly related. Has anyone else noticed this?
I still need to smell this one.
This is a great scent which I am lucky to have. You might still be able to get a hold of a large bottle but it has become increasingly difficult to find.
I have tried Moschino Pour Homme, but it was two years ago, and i wasn`t so good in percepting scents at that time, so i don`t have a proper memory of it to compare it to Rochas Globe. All that i remember is that Moschino Pour Homme was a dry woody fragrance on me.
If you loved Globe, it`s popping at the discount stores at this moment. Both fragrancex and fragrancenet have it for not so high prices
I have noticed that, even on evilbay, there are Globes popping up for decent prices.
Globe is fantastic and really doesn't get enough praise. To my nose, the drydown smells similar to vintage Antaeus.
Fyi - You can buy Globe at Parfum1 for a good price.

The only close scent to Globe in my experience is Carlo Corinto.
Check out my blog Pour Monsieur, a no-nonsense guide to men's fragrances:
Any fragrance that should not be worn in public, should be worn in public.
The Rochas is almost like a cross breed of Moschino and Corinto. I get hints of Corinto the first few minutes, then as the heart comes on, it starts paralleling with the ambery aspects of Moschino. I am liking this scent VERY MUCH.
Killer_Vavoom .......great comparison bro. I would have never thought of CC and as soon as I read your post, I knew you were right.
I wore Globe back in 1994, and the memory of it has pretty much disappeared. My mind tries to reach for the smell again, but I just cant recall it.
I have been meaning to reintroduce myself for months.
Can anyone speak to how it compares to Sybaris by Puig ?

The Moschino is still kicking up spice and Mace atop amber while the Globe has a subtle green and amber aura. I like it enough to buy it in the near future. I'm putting it on my list for 2011.
I have a mini of Globe... I could never find a big bottle of it... I'm glad it seems to be back!

Thanks for reminding me. It's warming up down here now - prefect weather for Globe.

Leather, Moss, Olibanum, Labdanum, Castoreum, Amber, Musk
I've never smelled it. Is it aldehydic, at all?
Just arrived today. First impressions: Smooth aromatic opening over an obvious leather base. Very nice so far; kind of an 80s vibe; it smells like it's going to be pretty loud, but it's actually smooth and attractive. Sillage is a bit strong for the first couple of hours; not overpowering at all. Will have to spend some more time with this one and add a review. So far, thumbs up though!
Bought this today at Parfums de France Tysons corner (they have a couple more bottles)- 100ml glass splash bottle. Intrigued because described as a floral for men, which I like. My nose is tired from all the smelling at the stores. On paper, I get a classic masculine structure, green-herbal-aromatic slightly resiny, brighter than most. Some white florals, but they are really not too prominent (unlike in, say, Insense). I don't sense much leather yet. I'll need to wear it properly.
Always wanted to try this one, never got the chance to test it
Wonder if the one I tried was still good. Was fairly weak, and, to me, nothing like Antaeus or VC&A which I both greatly enjoy. I found it interesting enough but not all that attractive and too weak. If I ever come across it again I will have another sniff for sure.
