    I’m pleased to announce that I will be hosting a Sample Pass that will be focusing on fragrances from Rogue Perfumery. This is a non-IFRA US-based fragrance line founded by Manuel Cross.

    Been on BN for at least 6 months

    Requirements:
    For each scent provide a description of your initial impressions and opinion.

    I would like to have an equal representation of guys and gals here but I reserve the right to make any flexibility if I feel it's necessary. Depending on how much we have left over I may add a additional spots to the list.

    Participants as of (02/22/19): The order may change based on everyone's location.

    #9-15 will be in Group 2***

    ***Sample kit going to Europe


    UPDATE 01/13/19:

    Manny has graciously offered to provide another sample set in this pass. Therefore we can have more individuals participate in this pass.

    Similar to The Zoo Sample Pass, if someone is willing to ship the samples to Europe we can accomodate a few individuals from those countries. If so, I'd like to give priority to the folks across the pond.

    UPDATE 01/14/19:

    I'm going to reserve the remaining spots pending if we can get a sample kit shipped over to Europe.

    UPDATE 01/16/19:

    After talking with Bavard, he has agreed to ship one of the sample kits to Europe. Therefore we can accommodate a few folks across the pond.

    A big thanks and shoutout to Bavard!

    UPDATE 01/17/19:

    #1
    We have two identical sample kits for this pass. What's going to happen is that those who are in the first half of the list will receive one kit and those who are in the second half of the list will receive the other kit. The second kit will be going to Europe.

    #2
    Bonus samples - I will be adding some additions to the sample pass that aren't from Rogue Perfumery. I will be revealing them shortly.

    UPDATE 01/18/19:

    I will include the very elusive Creed(s) Vintage Tabarome, Bayrhum Vetiver, and Verveine Narcisse as a BONUS! I want everyone to try these fragrances and see what s/he thinks of it. All I ask is for all of you to write a short initial impressions (or if desired submit a Fragrance Review on it for those who love writing reviews)

    UPDATE 01/24/19:

    I spoke with Hazel5 recently and she too is willing to ship to Europe. If we can get any additional individuals from Europe who might be interested I might expand the current list.

    Another possibility, if there are any individuals from Canada who are interested in sampling the Rogue Perfumery fragrances I could also expand the list.

    UPDATE 02/18/19: I have spoken to Manny. To confirm, Fougere L'Aube will be part of the Rogue Perfumery Sample Pass in the form of an extended package. Everyone will get a chance to sample this new release!

    UPDATE 02/22/19: The samples of Fougere L'Aube have arrived. I will be contacting grayspoole and IsoESuperman to ship these samples. In addition to Fougere L'Aube, I will be adding Creed Aubepine Acacia as a Bonus sample.

    UPDATE 05/23/19: I have spoken to Manny. To confirm, Flos Mortis and 40 Love Resurrection will be part of the Rogue Perfumery Sample Pass in the form of another extended package. Everyone will get a chance to sample both of these 2019 releases!

    The fragrances that will be part the pass will include:

    My impressions for each Rouge Perfumery fragrance:


    01/09 Tabac Vert

    This one has been suggested to have similarities to Creed Vintage Tabarome which is my favorite Creed. These are my thoughts.

    For the first few minutes the opening was bright and invigorating, this I believe is the bergamot note. The opening of Tabac Vert I would say is the closet in resemblance to VT. The tobacco and pepper starts to emerge giving it a darker and dry feel. In addition, the mossy accord begins to take effect thanks to richness of the oakmoss present in the scent. The similarities are definitely there between the two scents. I do feel that TV is a bit more modernized than VT not exactly the same but it’s not far from it. I think if the average nose were to compare the two s/he wouldn’t be able distinguish the differences. The base contains wood notes provided by the sandalwood and cedar. The oakmoss never goes away in the drydown but becomes more subtle. A prominent tobacco based scent that really connects with the old world of fragrances. Wearing this I imagine myself in either two different places: a gentlemen’s club or at a barbershop.

    For those who have never smelled Creed Vintage Tabarome or can’t afford it, Tabac Vert would be a great affordable alternative. Nothing will beat VT but this is probably the closet resemblance that I’ve smelled of it. I could see myself wearing this as a cheaper alternative to VT.

    02/09 Le Canotier

    Two notes stand out to me in Le Canotier: Tabacco and Vetiver. The opening is a bit bright thanks to the citrus note which quickly recedes into the background. Soon the tobacco and violet leaf emerged providing a bright spicy accord fused with some lushes green feel to it. The tobacco resembles the one of Creed Tabarome Millesime. It’s quite potent and becomes a bit polarizing after a while. The tobacco does taper a little but sticks around. The base is met by vetiver which is of the drier and darker kind. A little bit of ambergris can be detected as well, something common in many Creeds. The drydown I felt was a wrestle between the tobacco and vetiver notes. This one has long lasting longevity.

    Overall, this one does not appeal to me much. This one reminds of Tabarome Millesime, which is a Creed that I do not enjoy, and this is one that I can’t wear. It also felt a bit more modern compared to the others. Most importantly the tobacco combined with the violet leaf, (and moss?) is something I can’t get passed. I enjoy vetiver scents but the other notes just make this impossible to enjoy. The quality is definitely there and this one does stand out but just not for me.

    03/09 Chypre-Siam

    First Formulation (Not Included)

    A very dated scent. First thing that came to mind was Coty Chypre. It also made me think about Guerlain Mitsouko although I’ve never smelled an earlier formulation of it.

    The opening consisted of a zesty fresh basil note with a little bit of lime that made the scent initially aromatic. The heart introduced a subtle amount of florals, I was able to detect the jasmine here. Finally, the oakmoss emerged supported by sandalwood and a little bit of leather. The drydown was extremely mossy, dry, and green.

    A very elegant and refined scent, one that I do enjoy a lot. For someone who enjoys vintage fragrances particularly chypre based scents this is one to try.

    Second Formulation (Included - 2019 Release)

    The opening has a brighter opening compared to the first formulation. Jasmine was detected in the heart as in the previous formulation. The main difference was the detection of the amber accord that became increasingly pronounced as time passed. The amber was soft, slightly powdery sweet, and not overly resinous as I’ve come accustomed to in many amber based scents. This formulation felt more complete and has added depth with the inclusion of amber accord. I would have to say that the second reformulation doesn’t smell close to Coty Chypre. Still a wonderful scent overall.

    04/09 Mousse Illuminee

    I would definitely categorize Mousse Illuminee as a power house scent and the most potent of the entire collection.

    In the opening I detected strong whiffs of fresh pine leaves. Cypress and laurel leaves began to emerge adding to the scent’s bitterness giving Mousse Illuminee a resinous feel which lingered for a long time. Tree moss, wood notes, and musk were present at the base.

    As some have already suggested, I too could imagine myself in a forest. The fresh odors of tree sap, the smell pine trees, and aroma of moss in the surrounding all in a cold damp environment.

    While it was a good scent overall, this is one that I would have a difficult time wearing.

    05/09 Derviche

    This is the first scent that deviates from the previous 4 (scents in Rouge Perfumery) in which it doesn’t focus on chyrpe or green notes.

    The opening begins with some sparkling bergamot before it recedes giving way to some tobacco and of course the labdanum. The amber accord is not as dark and resinous as I was expecting it to be but it’s not super sweet either. Floral jasmine is met with a sugary amber vaniila accord at the base. In addition, I was able to detect woods and musk in the base. The drydown makes me think of Hermessence Ambre Narguile but it’s not exactly the same. A very nice scent overall.

    Longevity and silage were good although not as bold as Mousse Illuminee or Le Canotier. I think this is perfect for the individuals who enjoy both amber and jasmine. The jasmine does have a dated feel and definitely it worked in harmony to complement the amber/vanilla accord at the base.

    06/09 Champs Lunaires

    Like Derviche, this too deviates from the chypre and green notes.

    The opening begins with a sharp pomelo note that provides a brief citrus/grapefruit like smell. Quickly it fades giving way to the tuberose florals. The tuberose is quite elegant and lushes. I wasn’t able to pick out the white rose petals blended in with the tuberose but it’s slightly different to the tuberose that I’ve smelled in the past. This reminded me of Serge Lutens Tuberose Criminelle . Eventually the tuberose florals tones down giving way to a creamy musky dry down with a backbone of woods aided by the sandalwood.

    The longevity and silage are good, not overbearing which is a good thing. Elegant and sensual through the entirety of the scent. Wearing this, I imagine myself in a field of tuberose on a bright clear spring day. Tuberose isn’t one of my favorite florals but I do enjoy the composition of this scent. Anyone who enjoys tuberose will surely like this scent.

    I hope Manny could continue exploring other genres as well as these scents Derviche and Champs Lunaires are fantastic.

    07/09 Fougere L'Aube

    The scent opened with a fresh bergamot with a green galbanum note. The opening was crisp and refreshing going along the lines of Creed Green Irish Tweed. Not exactly the same scent but does have some similarity. Lavender florals emerged in the heart that blends with the existing galbanum. I do pick up on a violet leaf note that is present in GIT. I definitely pick up a dominating fougere here. A few hours in the florals started to taper off while the oakmoss and wood notes started to creep in. Some of the magic from the fougere effect is lost but is replaced with the mossy accord that we're used to seeing that is present in some of the other rogue scents. Decent longevity and silage. I must say It carries a timeless feel similar to GIT that it could fit in with the modern times. Overall I would consider this a gentlemen like scent, formal, classy, and clean. If one enjoys the smell of Creed Green Irish Tweed, one will likely enjoy Fougere L'Aube. Great work Manny!

    08/09 Flos Mortis

    TBD

    09/09 40 Love Resurrection

    TBD

    I do like Mousse Illuminee.

    Among the ones I've sampled, Champs Lunaires is an instant like. Well-Balanced natural tuberose blend, really pleasant.
    I also enjoy Mousse Illuminee, somehow it reminds me of Ralph Lauren Polo, a water-downed version of course.

    I'm not familiar with tobacco perfumes, can't do any detailed analysis on Tabac Vert, it's really pleasant anyway. Chypre-Siam is very...educational for me, since I'm not familiar with vintage chypre either.

    What do you think of these two and the third one you've tried? Which one did you enjoy the most?

    ok a more detailed impression:

    At the beginning of Mousse Illuminee there is something akin to un-dried paint; under this silver coat of “paint”, the pine needles and fresh type of resins getting stronger with time; and then, something sweet underneath start to show, something I can only describe as “sweet bean paste” but much lighter; finally I get a bit of skunky scent of moss. The scent is as natural as it can be.

    The tobacco in Tabac Vert has a bit animalistic edge at first, then it gets...gloomier, perhaps drier; then the tobacco got “spiced up” from time to time, but still gloomy. The dry-down moves towards lighter side, reminds me of Tabac Blond (Ah everything reminds me of Tabac Blond): the smell of empty cigarettes box; but I think Tabac Vert is brown-er than Blond, and not as rich—but of course, it’s edt.

    Champs Lunaires reminded me of Serge Lutens Tuberose Criminelle. A very nice elegant tuberose scent that doesn't become over powering.

    Chypre-Siam is one that I like as well, it's very close to Coty Chypre, a nice old school chypre. I've read in a thread that it also has similarities to vintage Mitsouko which is something I've yet to try.

    Mousse Illuminee is a bit difficult to wear as it definitely resembles a power house scent from the 80s/90s . I think it's the most complexed from the line. It's a good scent.

    Mousse Illuminee really captures the essence of being in the wilderness surrounded by pine trees with oozing tree sap in very damp conditions with odors of moss in the air.

    Tabac Vert puts me back in time at a gentlemen's club or at a old fashioned barbershop for a traditional wet shave.

    Huh? I haven't sniffed Serge Lutens' creation for a while, but I remember it to be one of the least floral tuberoses I tried. Sharp as killer's blades. The styrax kind of steals the show.

    Memory can be wrong, of course.

    Memory can be wrong, of course.
    It didn't show similarities right away, I recalled it was much later when the tuberose floral emerged. There were other notes present that made the tuberose shared the spotlight.

    There was another one that was a much clearer tuberose scent, Tauerville Tuberose Flash. That one was a much more potent tuberose scent. It had a jammy feel to it, a peach accord if I remembered correctly.

    Hi,

    I hope to post in more detail. I've already done, on other threads, but now sleep is catching up.

    In short, I think Mousse Illuminee is more finished and more of a perfume with different nuances, but I liked the style/idea/genre of Tabac Vert more, even though the latter comes across as more of an unfinished perfume.

    I currently own Chypre Siam and Mousse Illuminee, the former a nod to vintage chypres with few embellishment while the latter is an oldschool powerhouse, a trippy DeLorean trip to the early ‘80s when Polo ruled the roost. 2019 will probably be Manny’s breakthrough year. I can already see Tabac Vert or Le Canotier joining the wardrobe as well. Even Derviche is intriguing me with its aromatic tobacco facets.

    Hi there-

    I've never sampled anything from this house, so I would love to join in, if there is room.

    UPDATES:

    Manny has graciously offered to provide another sample set in this pass. Therefore we can have more individuals participate in this pass.

    Similar to The Zoo Sample Pass, if someone is willing to ship the samples to Europe we can accomodate a few individuals from those countries. If so, I'd like to give priority to the folks across the pond.

    Tabac Vert was the easiest to like since I do enjoy Creed Vintage Tabarome a lot. While it's not identical, Tabac Vert is the closest that I've smelled that resembles Vintage Tabarome.

    Oh, I am so eager to hear your reactions to these, Grayspoole. I think your vintage-loving heart is going to be pleased.
