    Default Rochas Man Casual wear? (School, Work etc)

    Hey, i am thinking of picking up rochas man as i want a nice gourmand.

    But, can i wear this daily to school and casually without overpowering and smelling nice and linear at the same time?

    thanks

    IMO, yes. It's not an overpowering frag. 2-3 sprays usually lasts me around 6 hours or so, with the first few projecting softly and the last few more of a skin scent. For me, it's not a light, masculine gourmand perfectly suited for casual wear

    IMO, it's too sexy for school and work ( unless sex appeal is an important part of work) Please let others focus on the work at hand, will ya
    It's perfect for a night out though.

    Wouldnt recommend daily. Only good for close encounters and maybe winters but doesnt even last long.

    Yes. Its good for casual use but I would not wear it in hot weather. Also it can project lot in first hour so rather spray less. (2 sprays should be just fine)
    Current TOP 5 from my collection:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    4. Encre Noire
    5. Dior Homme Intense

    I think it might be a little unprofessional to wear it at work. I interpret those gourmands as coming off very masculine and sexy towards the opposite sex. But if that sounds like your environment at work go right ahead. And if so, are they looking to hire any senior project managers.

    As far as school goes... I remember when I was in college, a 19 year old living away from my parents with a sex drive that had no brake pedal. 98% of everything I did was to get laid. So my recommendation.... spray away my friend. Like a bunch. Everyone here has made that mistake when we were young and you know what? You should too.

    When asking a question like this just think about what the AVERAGE fragrance wearer would do. 99% of guys who buy RM wear it exclusively and in every situation and none of them worry about the things that we worry about on BN. Just act like those guys.

    Yes.
    This is definitely a nice scent, fits all occasions and relatively versatile. Can be worn all year round with light application in summer.
    One of my bests.
    Also consider CK One Shock for Him if you find Rochas Man appealing.

    Can be worn anytime.

    I would recommend against daily wear. Too sweet, could become quite linear and boring over time. While, I personally feel there are much better options, Rochas Man is one of those fragrances you wear specifically to get someone's attention.

    Roja Dove Diaghilev
    Amouage Interlude Man

    Coincidentally, I'm wearing this at work right now. I think it is fine for daily wear in cooler months, but couldn't bear to wear it in the summer.

    It's for anytime wear IMO.

    Also, if you were like me when I was in school, I was prepetually broke. Rochas Man is pretty cheap online but Michael Jordan's Legend is DIRT CHEAP, somewhat comparable, and can always be found at your local Marshalls / Ross / TJ Maxx. The big 3.4 oz can be had for under $15.

    And don't fear the weak brand name. You know that lyric from "Thrift Shop"?

    "Tryin' to get girls from a brand? Man you hella won't."

    Same thing applies the other way. You can't lose girls from a brand so don't think all celeb fragrances are for the birds. It's all about how you carry yourself.

    you can wear this anywhere at any time imo

    i own it and its a close to the skin scent so you can be pretty liberal with the sprays.

    never been offensive,only gets compliments

    Rochas Man, although it seems like a bomb, is very light. It's perfect for school wear and not bad for work either.
