Summary: I love the fragrance and have had many comments about how good it is. Do realize that it is different on each person due to your personal chemistry. I have been using this aftershave now for 10 years and one bottle will last a year with every day use.
Summary: Tolu Balsam Benzoin and i think there's a note missing Myrrh gives it a dark woodsy scent and it dries down to a powdery texture this can be weared by Men and Women i love the color the color of Yellow Topaz Liquid and i love the Bottle design it's shaped like a top or the Top looks Like a old record Vinyl. the Reason i like this then loving it because of it's powdery drydown which i'm not crazy about.
Summary: Another smooth oriental creation in the same olfactory neighborhood as TROUBLE, albeit quite a bit simpler, Rochas ABSOLU is so benzoin and tolu balsam and labdanum-rich that the flowers (lily and neroli?)--and whatever else is supposed to be here--lie below my threshold detection capacity. What is most salient to me about this creation is its creator, Jacques Cavallier, who seems to use some mystery component which marks many perfumes as his own.
Summary: Absolu is not really a mirror to its name, but it is a special fragrance that, thank Goodness, walks boldly away from all the over-sweet orientals available now. Instead, this is like rich dark, addictive molasses. It has a bit of sweetness to it, enough to make it warm, feminine, dark, smoky, intense, without being an obviously available (read easy to encounter on others) scent.
