    Default Rochas Man ...Euphoria Intense... Play Intense

    Hey all !! I ordered all 3 of these from Fragrancenet and haven't cracked the seal on any of the boxes. I keep seeing Play Intense smells like Rochas Man and Euphoria Intense smells like them also. I haven't really smelled any of these fully but I like all scents from fruity to woodsy to WTF is that.I was just curious if all 3 of these are worth keeping or to send some back? I didn't know if pretty much I might the same thing 3 times or if they are good in their own right. Thanks for the help.

    I'd keep the Givenchy and the Rochas.

    That's what I was leaning towards since the euphoria intense some say has poor longevity, but also read that the Rochas Man and Play Intense were very similar.

    I would go with Play Intense and Rochas.

    Just cracked open the Rochas and WOW is it good. I love the New Haarlem with the sweet note on the top. Pretty awesome and at a heck of a discount.

    Now it's time to break the seal on the GPI. Not sure if they are really similar, but GPI smells excellent.

    I disagree about the Euphoria intense. When I wear it I get atleast 8-10 hrs and its the best of the three you mentioned imo... But I am not a big Gourmand fan so I liked Euphoria intense cause I don't get Gourmand from it. I have the original Givenchy play and I love that way more than intense.

    Rochas gets my vote! Awesome scent. Not overly sweet I don't think

    Be wary of taking much stock in what others say smells the same or has poor longevity. I get crazy good longevity from a few scents others often complain about. Play Intense doesn't smell like Rochas Man. Rochas Man is definitely a keeper, partly because I believe it's been discontinued. I like owning discontinued scents because I enjoy smelling unique.

    If you're not sure about Play Intense, go to Macy's or Sephora and give it a test wear. I was in love with Play Intense for a while, but I grew bored of it. I have a nearly full bottle I'll probably try swapping for something else. It's a really good scent, but is it unique enough to want to keep? That's a tough call.

    I don't think Euphoria Intense is in the same league as Rochas Man and Play Intense. But that's just my take. Really, the only thing that matters is what you think.

    In the end, trust your own nose first and foremost. Don't buy a scent because others say it's good. Buy because you like it and want to wear it.

    I would have said keep the Givenchy Play Intense by Givenchy, which has a similar mocha accord as the mocha cafe accord in the Rochas Man by Rochas. But, since you opened the Rochas, which is a good scent on its own, keep that one, and return the others.

    I think Play Intense is different enough to warrant a keep

    Play Intense is good. It's really sweet.... coffee/orange vibe.
