    Default Roja Dove Frags

    Has anyone tried Roja Dove fragrances for men? Which is your favourite and what are its notes?

    I've tried most of them and they're very well-composed along the lines of Guerlain. However, I'm on the fence about their longevity and not being able to sample them properly doesn't help. With that said, none of them have become lemmings for me.

    Fetish.

    It comes as following:

    Fetish pour homme - EDP
    Fetish pour homme - Parfum
    Fetish - Parfum

    The latter two are beyond description and longevity boundless.

    Trebor, which ones had longevity issues? I mainly the 'pour homme' collection and longevity was excellent.

    Maybe the pour femme ?

    for swap/sale:

    'Roja's' fragrances are generally very well blended and appear to utilise top drawer ingredients.
    As Trebor says, longevity isn't their stong point and for the prices, well...
    Also, getting a sample out of the SA truly is like drawing blood from a stone.

    Vetiver, Neroli and Aoud are lovely, but lacking originality.
    The other 'male' fragrances didn't move me.

    Diaghilev, probably marketed pour femme is/ was his best, I think.

    I tried Fetish at Roja Dove in Harrods, which I liked at first but which I later found rather uninteresting, and Amber Oud, which reminded me that I don't really like Oud!

    I tried them all in store last year and took away some scented spills with biro-scrawled identifiers. They were all good IMO but the fougere one (Danger PH) and the oriental one (Scandal PH) were more to my taste than the leather one (Fetish PH). The vetiver was nice but not reflective of the mind-blowing price. They all lasted well on paper. Given the cost I would need to do proper skin testing before splashing the cash - even with the 10% card holder discount!

    Well, as I still have to sample them properly, I'm still on the fence. But Fetish PH EDP didn't last long on me and nor did anything from the oud line.

    Well, u r getting me intrigued!
    I own:
    1- Fettish Pour homme
    2-Enslaved
    3-Diaghliev
    and looking forward to buy Oud, but can not really justify the price.
    I am still to properly sample the others.

    Mu overall impression is very good, but not wow!
    The projection is awesome, but i do have a take on longevity
    given the price tag, otherwise an indulging experience

    Are there no tester bottles to spray like you would normally?

    I agree, their fragrances have poor longevity.
