Loyal companion
Eau de Rochas was my first perfume. I got it from my boyfriend at the time and was immediately blown away. At that time I understood nothing about head, heart and base, about the interaction of the fragrance components or similar. But I instinctively felt that this little water in the noble flacon was something very special. It was summer and Eau de Rochas became my faithful companion
The years passed, other scents came and went and EdR was forgotten. Until I saw him again quite by chance at Müller's. Wistfully I sprayed him on and then he was allowed to go with me.

The citric-spicy notes in the attack are wonderfully fresh and clean. It's almost like having a glass of ice-cold gin and tonic with a juicy slice of lemon at 35°C. Afterwards, the fragrance becomes softer, more floral, beautifully rounded off by the flowers in the heart, with the fresh note remaining present with me all the time. For me, EdR is a brilliant combination of summer freshness and simple elegance.

The durability is quite OK for a summer scent. After 3-4 hours you have to refill. But this is not a problem, because the scent is never obtrusive.

As long as this fragrance is available on the market, it will have a place in my collection. So let's hope that it will remain with us and not be crushed, as is unfortunately already the case with many classics.

Morgentau has gold in his mouth
The men's pendant is one of my all-time summer favorites. What can the original, classic women's version, from which I got a bottle with a few residual drops "inherited", do? A lot, too.

"Eau de Rochas" is a lovely citrus scent with floral, light, transparent undertones. Absolutely unisex, I think. Especially with a green-mossy base that's ready to lay down. It looks more like a Guerlain ala "Eau de Guerlain" or "Eau de Coq", very soft, very easy to wear, very high quality. It is reminiscent of summer morning, slightly cool and yet already radiantly beautiful. A day you like to get up for, a day that gives you hope and where anything is possible. It looks as if classic colognes with a fine chypre have made a cool, timeless baby. Oak moss doesn't look prettier. Wonderful!

Flacon: haptically very valuable and generally quite pretty. I have a bulk bottle.
Sillage+durability: clear deficits here, after-spraying unavoidable, but is also due to the midsummer fragrance. 3 hours

Conclusion: a cooling summer rain with an icy heart and a mossy hairstyle - a classic for June to August!

Clone de Ô
Despite containing lime, mandarin, lemon, grapefruit and bergamot, this doesn't feel like a cologne.
The structure is confused; lacking coherence, the various blocks do not pull together and somewhere between the citrus, dry powder and a sour floral note it loses its way.
In the modern version the result is well described as 'queasy' by RachelGrigg on another fragrance review website.

Appearing a year later than the simpler and superior dark mossy citrus of Ô de Lancôme in a virtually identical bottle, it is tempting to speculate that this was a 'me too' version that copied the form but didn't understand the spirit of the thing. It just doesn't work.

About the vintage version of EAU de ROCHAS:
I could wear this day after day, but it's too precious (a vintage!). It fits like a well-worn white shirt.
This is not for women only/for men only, not for summer or autumn nor winter only, but for every season.
I recognize myself in it, early days, teenage days, student days - today.
Maybe after years of sniffing and testing of other fragrances, the moment will come when all other scents will be washed away from my collection and only "Eau de Rochas" will prevail. The perfect EAU.

The Scent of Water
Imagine a clear stream of water bubbling over large smooth black pebbles, with lush green banks on either side, the grass and herbs trailing in the water. Now bottle it, and voila you have Eau de Rochas. This is a staple spritz for hot weather or feeling under the weather. Refreshing, uplifting and totally great!

Citrusy-aromatic , it 's quite similar to O de Lancome , but maybe more classic and quite unisex. Not bad, but a little "old style cologne"
