    In order

    Danger
    Fetish
    Reckless

    All 3 are excellent. I just prefer Danger. Love the stuff. Like a slightly more modern version of Heritage which I love but probably prefer Danger.

    Comparing with Heritage, how is the sillage and stayingpower?

    Gee, I only own FETISH and I certainly find that one potent, unique and interesting. Similar to M which I also own.

    By many accounts, DANGER is similar to HERITAGE which I see you own (and I own and love). The ROJA scents often seem derived from other classic scents, sort of reinterpreted, perhaps modernized with high quality materials. Perhaps it's a bolder, stronger version of HERITAGE which wouldn't be a bad thing.

    With RECKLESS I see references to X FOR MEN, a big time favorite of mine. If it has that cardamom/cinnamon one-two punch like X, I'd probably love it.

    Given I've only smelled FETISH, these notes may not be very useful but my sense is:

    FETISH is most daring, unique and edgy...
    DANGER most traditional and classic...
    RECKLESS the most sexy and romantic...

    Staying power is roughly about the same. I find Danger projects better especially for the first 3 hours.

    Fetish Extrait. Where I found Puredistance M an expensive recreation of Bel Ami without any shard edges, Fetish Parfum realizes that those sharp edges are the main appeal of its inspiration and builds on that dirty roughness so beautifully.

    Danger doesn't do anything for me, just like it's Guerlain inspiration never did.

    I haven't tried Reckless but the talk of X recreation has got my attention.

    I have only tried Reckless and Danger (both the extrait and PC versions), and after several rounds of testing, ended up with the Reckless.

    Having tried all three:

    Danger
    Reckless
    Fetish

    Fetish is my favorite of the three. It’s interesting. Multi-faceted. Warm, smoky, sweet, sharp. Just an interesting and good smelling perfume with great performance.

    Is Fetish only a "special occasions" scent?

    Hmmm. I personally would not think of it that way. Probably more earthy and sensual than formal. Of the three, it's probably the most challenging to wear. It is very similar to PUREDISTANCE M, but it has much harder edges, and is more "dangerous." The castoreum is working a little harder in FETISH and it isn't as smooth an operator as M.

    For example, I have and would wear PUREDISTANCE M to work (loud though it can be); I would probably not wear FETISH to work.

    Now, when I say challenging, I don't mean "challenging to the average Basenoter." It won't freak you out like SECRETIONS MAGNIFIQUE or something like that. Rather a matter of when and wear you might find it right time to wear it. Not an automatic "reach for" like I perceive DANGER might be. As blackaroma said, FETISH has a bit of "dirty roughness."

    Danger for me!

    Default Re: Roja parfums. Reckless, Fetish or Danger

    Ive only tried Fetish and Danger. My take:

    Everyday wear - Danger
    Date or night out - Fetish

    Fetish is my favorite of the two though. Plenty of everyday scents to replace Danger.

    You could also try Puredistance M and Bel Ami. Same vibe as Fetish.

    Exactly my opinion also. I already have Heritage in both concentrations, and New York Intense as my work-horse fragrance. I really love Bel Ami but the current version is quite weak on my skin.

    Danger is my favorite of the three and ended up with Danger Extrait in the end. I do get the Heritage comparisons, but I feel Danger has more presence. I think longevity is about the same for both.

    Danger is a pretty unimaginative fougere imo -- but I have to admit, I enjoyed wearing it

    Fetish is my favorite by far. Great stuff. Reckless is very nice and somewhat unique. Danger smells a little too traditional and plain on my skin to justify the price.
