Femme Fatale, indeed!
Femme is timeless, and quite seductive. I can detect sweetness flittering around the deep, dark notes like oakmoss, clove and leather. Very earthy, natural. The peach and plum aren't the juicy variety; they're powdery, spicy and rolled in cinnamon. That warm cinnamon is my favorite part of Femme.... Read more

survived reformulation
Rochas Femme would be interesting if only for the fact that it is a great battle-axe of perfumery.  It originated during a time of rations and war, it has survived a number of  formulations, and it's survived trend and fashion, no mean thing. But Femme is interesting other reasons. It is an early... Read more

Estrogen gone wild
I will preface this by saying that I much, much prefer the reformulated version, so this is the one I am reviewing. Unabashedly feminine and voluptuous, Femme is an amazing treat for the senses: From its gently seasoned, stewed fruit compote opening that flows right into its spicy floral... Read more

Maligned and unappreciated.
Oh, poor Femme Rochas. It's much maligned for being reformulated (in 1989), and it's under-appreciated for being wearable (today). This reformulated version strikes me as a nice balance between older style fruity chypres and more modern ones. It's also knock-down, drag-out, 10-times better than... Read more

Secret paths
A lovely classic has crept into my heart! The initial way is firmly fruity before Jasmin swings the scepter quite considerably. This pairedly finds very easily with spices to my preferences. The feeling of happiness is perfect because leather, sandelwood, musk and Patchouli have taken a... Read more

Caveat E-bay Emptor
It saddens me to learn that people are selling bad bottles and decants of reformulated Rochas FEMME. My own bottle (acquired at some point during the late twentieth century) contains a delightful fruity chypre with just enough spice to make it truly unique. Although I am quite sensitive to cumin...
