    So pineapples and citrus fruits can be found in fountains in Paris in May? May is “summer” ? Who knew?

    Sorry. In a snarky mood today. This may well be a delightful scent. Just not feelin’ it….

      Maggiecat, I thought the same thing when I saw pineapple and mango. Lol. Not my idea of a Parisian fountain.

    • Robin says:

      Well, you don’t want stale water & algae, LOL…

    Ahh the curse of the house of Rochas under P&G. They will never get the name and reputation back.
    How sad…

    • Robin says:

      They certainly don’t seem to be taking any bold moves in that direction, do they? Then again, I didn’t even smell Muse.

      • Ericgmd says:

        Robin, it’s always a bad sign when you search for a fragrance on Ebay and you don’t find any.
        Try to do an Ebay search for the 2 words “Muse Rochas” (in any category)
        Muse may very well have been discontinued already.

        • annemarie says:

          You are right about the eBay search. How weird. It is not on the Rochas website either. Muse must have come and gone within a blink of the eye. Well, well, I’ll try and sample this new one.

        • Robin says:

          Oh, but I don’t think they brought Muse to the US at all. And not sure they’ll bring this one either.

    They had me with the pepper and mandarin, lost me on pineapple and mango, and had me groaning at white musk.

    As long as they keep making Eau de Rochas I don’t care if they make anything else…

    • Emily says:

      Yes, and Femme!

        (I now own enough backup bottles of Byzance that I’ve come to terms with its discontinuation.)

    A note on sichun peppers. The real sichun peppers (which I doubt is what is in the juice) is not related to the “hot” peppers used in Mexican cuisine. It has a smoky smell, and can be a stimulant. It is the key flavoring in a famous dish called “Pock Mocked Woman’s tofu” (supposedly after the street vendor who developed it), a delicious sort of Chinese chili.
    It does not evoke Parisian Fountains or white flowers.
