The Desert's Ocher Land
If there is one thing I cannot understand, it is why some fragrances are only distributed in certain countries while are not available for others. In Italy, where I was born and still live, the Yves Roches chain of stores is very well known and widespread, both through physical stores and online e-commerce. Still, fragrances like Voile d’Ocre or Nouveau Genre are not available. Well, I was in Montpellier in France recently for a short vacation to visit a niece who lives there. During a tour in the oldest part of the city, I found myself in front of a shop of this brand. I entered intending to buy Nouveau Genre, which they probably discontinued, and the entire line of The Yves Roches Parfume Collection was available on the shelf, including this fragrance at a significantly discounted price; the last pieces were undoubtedly out of production. I didn’t think much about it. I sprayed it on the paper strip and headed to the cash desk with the perfume and the blotter in hand. And right from my hand came the dry and creamy notes of the blond woods that form the structure of Voile d’Ocre.

Voile d’Ocre is an Eau de perfume added lately to the collection at the beginning of 2021 and is not a very complex perfume, yet in its simplicity, it is pleasant to the nose and the mind. The combination of two blond kinds of wood inspired the two noses that composed the scent: sandalwood and cedar. We, therefore, find a woody opening in which the dry and slightly green aspects of cedar pencil shavings prevail and release warm spicy notes. The smell of wood reminds me of a sawmill, where cedar logs still a little green are cut, and the air is filled with resinous and woody aromas. You can feel the sap that once flowed inside the tree. There is a bit of freshness, in the beginning, nothing citrusy or watery, just fresh.

There is no heart or tail as the perfume passes from a dry to a more creamy aspect, in which the sensuality of milky sandalwood makes its way. More, the two kinds of wood need the right balance, and I think there is an unmentioned secret ingredient that links, reinforces, harmonises, and extends the longevity of the cologne. Since I like it, I think they added an overdose of Iso E Super, a molecule that resists longer on clothes and is detectable days after. I recognise the typical earthiness and dustiness I meet in #zara sandal or #zara sublime cedar, for instance. Now the scent twisted into something warm, reminiscent of the desert backdrop.

If I wanted to associate this fragrance with something I have already smelled, it would be Santal 33 Eau de Parfum. I recognise a dry spiciness from cedar and a milkiness that I attribute to sandalwood. However, Voile d'Ocre does not want to be a perfect clone since in Santal 33 the dry and pungent accord of cedar wood shavings reigns supreme, while here we are faced with the creamier and smokier accord of sandalwood. The perfumers have done a fantastic job using two of the stepping stones in the woods to create a new woody retreat on the edge of the desert. I wanted to try it out last night to go to an outdoor event. Despite the heat, a stormy wind blew. All the people I met told me I was wearing a beautiful perfume, while some perceived hints of coconut, others of fig. These two notes are not mentioned, but they may be some shades of cedar and sandalwood reinforced by the aroma chemical Iso E Super. Indeed, this uncomplicated perfume does not go unnoticed.
I like it and find it a scent full of contrasts, fresh and warm at the same time, dry and creamy, spicy and milky. I find it ideal for mid-seasons, from late spring to late autumn. I can wear it very well during the day, in my free time, but also during work. Its scents are delicate, and it does not have a robust projection, but on the other hand, it lasts a long time, all day without a doubt. Although I am sorry I did not find Nouveau Genre, I am very proud to have purchased this unknown gem in its place.

I base the review on a 100ml bottle I have owned since July 2022.

I had another card from Rocher flutter into my house - with the usual 50% offers.

I always look forward to this mail, it gives me but a reason times again to show up in the store and look for novelties.
And promptly I find on a pedestal Voile d'ocre with the note " novelty ".

The picture on the box immediately appeals to me with its colors in terracotta and ocher.

I think of warm exotic climes - like Marrakech.
And the fragrance completely redeems my fantasies.

A mild desert wind embraces me - pleasantly warm, without heat.
The fragrance bathes the scene in a soft light - like a soft focus.
The sandal and cedar go harmoniously hand in hand - rounded by sweetish vanilla and creamy almond milk.

Voile spreads calm and evokes images of vast sand dunes, through which leisurely caravans move - the camels lined up as on a string of pearls.

Time passes slowly - and I watch my hourglass, measuring the seconds grain by grain.

I feel decelerated and am sufficiently occupied enjoying the fragrance.

With Voile d Ocre Rocher has succeeded again a good throw.

No revelation, but solid
Like Cuir Vétiver, I bought Voile d'Ocre blind because I was attracted to the notes and wanted to know if it was any good as a sandalwood scent. To say it in advance: I find conditionally.

What I've read all here, what it should smell like. Almond milk, vanilla, tonka bean, coconut. I don't think much of such comparisons. Yes, it is quite sweet. The closest thing I can smell is the similarity to vanilla. But it's different. It has the woodiness,,creaminess and in hints also the sourness I expect from sandalwood. The cedarwood blends in very well there. However, the scent is still a bit too sweet for me for a sandalwood. It also lacks a certain depth that I so appreciate in "Cuir Vétiver", for example, where the sandalwood is also better, in my opinion. It remains quite one-dimensional and changes with time. not great . Nevertheless, it is pleasing and well wearable. By the way, also for men, I find.

Not so famous is the sillage. The durability could be a little better, but is ok.

All in all, "Voile d'Ocre" is a little complex, but pleasant fragrance, which is well worth it for the low price.

In its clarity, with its blond woods' dry and creamy nuances, and hints of coconut and fig, it's both pleasant to the nose and to the mind!
