Reviews of Fetish pour Homme

I pulled this out of my sample bucket and put it on blindly...At first I thought that I had grabbed myself an incense fragrance...i smelled a high pitched piney incense...after that , to me, it smells like Puredistance M flavored wiith a spicy predominately lime dirty citrus..I love citrus and I love leather , so I find this fragrance to be extremely pleasurable to my nose and worthy of my full bottle wish list...as always, exquisite ingredients and blending...for associations that come to mind , this sits somewhere between the old school lime/leather of Davidoff and the futuristic avant garde lime/leather of Christopher Street...oh , and did I mention smoke...this has a nice overall touch of smokiness...enjoy...

Alongside Danger, Fetish is probably my favorite Roja. This one is a statement maker for sure. You need to own this one rather than let it own you otherwise you could be in big trouble. There is a resemblance to HdP 1740 and to a lesser degree Interlude. They are not identical but they surely give off the same vibe and do share some of the same notes. Spice, leather, pickled lime, dirty vanilla, booze. It's all here. Could intimidate the weak.

Only for the brave of heart but really something special.

An attempted clone of BelAmi at more than twice the price of vintage shaker bottle.
Why would anyone buy this is beyond me.

Men's scents owe a lot to the iconic and legendary Bel Ami by Hermes. For many of us the benchmark leather scent, it is one I have come to love and think of as something as close as possible to a signature scent as a frag-head can get to.

Fetish by Roja Dove fails to impress on originality right away. Its opening notes are a relatively good interpretation of that original smoky-leather-chypre called Bel Ami that we all know and love. I for one wouldn't be able to distinguish the two early on in a side-by-side comparison.

The similarities unfortunately end there. The heart contains bucket loads of cypriol - perhaps Roja Dove's scent DNA - which makes the scent reminiscent of moth-balls. By the dry down, the smooth and crisp vetiver note joins the party and the curtain draws to a close. There is sadly no encore.

There is a well-known obsession among niche perfumers recently to rip-off classic scents and this reeks of a lack of originality. Uninspired is an understatement. What else could they do? Roja has intentionally borrowed the top from Bel Ami and then made a complete hash of the rest. Surely if you're going to make a copy, you should do it right? Or improve it at the very least?

I am surprised a house that is obsessed with bling is able to create a fragrance with such a bland and uninspiring heart and dry down. With this level of cypriol, it makes me wonder who Roja thinks he's kidding.

The current edition of Bel Ami should be in every man's wardrobe and costs a fraction of Fetish. Fetish (and it's not too distant cousin Puredistance M) are redundant in this sense and all fragrance enthusiasts, including any millionaire readers, should steer clear of this one.

Splendid woody-citrus-leather creation from Roja Dove!!

Man, this thing is rich and lasts eons on my skin! Comparisons to Puredistance's M scent is on point, though Fetish pour Homme smells more prestigious and high-brow with its fine ingredients.

Gorgeous citrus opening goes quickly into a great mix of fig and florals plus spices, consumed by an addictive leather-musk heart that dominates this EdP. The leather is so lovely, and elements like rockrose, cinnamon, oakmoss, and other aromatic notes accent its solid presence in an almost purposeful way. And the resins deliver additional depth and darkness overall. There's no mistaking this for anything but a masculine fragrance!

Thick scent on the skin that exudes class all around. Excellent performance and memorable trail from yet another forebodingly attractive creation by Roja Dove! :-)

Been playing with this for about a year now and it's the only scent I've ever tried from this house. Longevity is nuclear, I sometimes smell this on my skin two days and two showers after applying it.

RD is not necessarily known for this as far as I can tell but one thing that blows me away about this scent is how natural this smells. I guess this is a tart citrus scent dirtied up with spices as it goes on in a way that emulates a sweaty, animalic leather? Paradoxically, this is one of the cleanest scents in my collection that I would reach for on bright, hot day. It doesn't say night time adventures to me as much as it says "summer at the beach."

Perhaps its that dirtied up lemon-lime grounded in castoreum and ambergris that makes me feel like this is the perfect way to smell on a day trip to Fire Island or Venice - or even walking down the boardwalk in Brighton. Fetish pour Homme does what a lot of those powerhouses of yesteryear from Drakkar to Azzaro and all the rest in between were attempting to do - but it is playful and parodies the chest-beating masculinity of 70's and 80's male scents, all the while taking a turn for the sublime instead of wallowing in cliche. Seems like it's all been done right here by the master with a wink, a little sleight of hand and a delicate twist of the wrist. Stirred, not shaken. Nice job.
