    Default Rochas Moustache or Monsieur de Givenchy

    I am looking for a nice citrus for summer and need to decide between the two which are easily found on the net and reasonably priced. the rochas is the Concentree version and the givenchy is the Les Parfums Mythiques version. I also considered Capucci Homme but i understand that the latest version is very weak.
    which one is more interesting? any differences in term of longevity and sillage?

    I only know the vintage versions are ultra classics. As far as I know the Rochas reformulation is not up to par.
    Apparently the Parfums Mythiques Monsieur is good but lacking longevity.
    I personally would search ebay for a used bottle of vintage, even the aftershave and if nothing turned up probably go with the Givenchy.

    The Rochas Concentree is stronger and dirtier but i find the 2 frags both have good longevity. The Les Mythiques edition of MdG may be just slightly weaker than the original, but it is quite good on its own merit.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Moustache is insane. Only purchase it if you can handle a strong animalic presence.
    My Top Ten:

    1: Guerlain - Habit Rouge
    2: Guerlain - Jicky
    3: Guerlain - Mouchoir de Monsieur
    4: Guerlain - Shalimar
    5: Knize - Knize Ten
    6: Caron - Yatagan
    7: Caron - Pour Un Homme
    8: Jean Desprez - Bal a Versailles
    9: Yves Saint Laurent - M7
    10: Salvador Dali - Dali Pour Homme

    Modern Moustache is terrible; you can try Eau de Rochas for men, quite cheap.
    BTW modern Capucci pour Homme (not the vintage one) is not weak, simply it is... all citrus and nothing else. If you want only a citrus blast, the better thing, strangely, it's the modern Capucci.

    I think the Moustache I tried was the modern stuff. Really gross, certainly no good citrus. Mythiques Mssr. Givenchy is nice juice, but severely reduced from the vintage in potency. I had to Hedonist it to get it to really work -- 15 to 25 sprays. I normally spray 3 to 8 sprays of EdTs, making it about 20% of normal potency.

    For citrus there are much better options. Aqua di Parma Colonia (and Assoluta and Intensa), Eau Sauvage, Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune, Eau de Guerlain, etc

    Monsieur de Givenchy is perfectly fine in its latest incarnation IMO. Rochas Moustache and I cannot get on.
