Roja Parfums Fetish Pour Homme ~ new fragrance

Roja Parfums Fetish Pour Homme

British niche line Roja Parfums has launched Fetish, a new chypre fragrance for men:

Bergamot, Lemon, and Lime, add a touch of dynamism to this rich, leathery composition which has touches of Neroli, Violet, Fig, and Jasmine at its heart which adds an unusual sweetness to a base which is redolent with Oakmoss, Patchouli, Vetiver, leather-like Labdanum, and Leather, with swathes of smoky Castoreum enlivened by Pepper, Pink Pepper, Cinnamon, and Cardamom, nestling on sensual base of Vanilla, Benzoin, Elemi, Ambergris, and Musk.

Roja Parfums Fetish Pour Homme is available at the brand's website, in 100 ml, concentration unknown, £195.

    That’s it. I have to make a trip to Harrods now. I’ve been away too long…! I also want to try the new RD Gardenia. Has anyone tried it?

  2. mals86 says:

    What, exactly, is “pour homme” about that list of notes?

    • platinum14 says:

      There are so few GOOD chypres pour homme, let us have one from time to time!

    • Robin says:

      It’s all in the mix, right? You could make that pretty masculine.

  3. Subhuman says:

    Agreed. I want to smell this SO badly.

  4. sinnerman says:

    This juice should have been what Lady GaGa put inside her Fame Black egg , this sounds really nice!

    I sampled Fetish the day after its official release.

    At first, it’s very reminiscent of Mona di Orio’s Cuir but the DNA of Puredistance’s M becomes rather evident during the drydown. It starts off darker, dirtier, smokier and more leathery (the castoreum is unmistakeable, with an initial birch tar-like presence). Based on this stage alone, I would say that M is more graceful and suave, while Fetish is more rugged and primal. However, I do feel that an olfactory convergence becomes more noticeable as the time passes – with a base revealing traces of spices, vanilla, labdanum and oakmoss.

    While it lasts for ages on clothes, its performance on the skin is rather disappointing – 4-5 hours longevity, after hearty six spritzes, and moderate to low projection. After the first hour, there are gentle wafts every now and again but not enough to truly satisfy.

    Personally, I don’t think it’s worth the money but, with the extrait due out next year, I’m going to wait before reaching a firm conclusion…

      Just to say I got a preview of the extrait last week from the first bottle off the line – the extrait is released next week so no need to wait until next year for it – I prefer it to the EDP and it does have a longer life, but at 3 times the price of the EDP that’s the least I would expect!

    oh my!! i am not a big fan of his creations but this one I MUST TRY!! harrods it is ladymurasaki..

    Just to say , this is an EDP for £195′ for 100ml, though Roja Doe will be releasing this fragrance in a Parfum concentration on 26th September 2012 priced at £295 for 50ml. The Parfum comes in a very pretty bottle with a gold and black crystal lid and looks very stylish. I got a preview of it and It smells fantastic , deeper and smoother than the EDP ( though at 3 times the price of the EDP I guess it should!)

    i have obtained a 20ml decant of this and i’m more than happy with it.
    at the beginning i was a bit quick to liken it as a le labo patchouli 24, tauer’s lonestar memories, mona di orio cuir or cartier la treizieme heure clone. but (if that’s possible), it’s even more than that. it’s dark, animalic, smoky, leathery, quite raw, but not as raw and aggressive as p24, the birch tar is very present (reminiscent of eau du fier), but there’s something else.
    there’s quite a bit of booze at the beginning and then you get this very interesting dark, green, vegetal note, very much like in memoir man and also a slight sweetness (not cloying and/or gourmand like) which sets this apart from p24 and mona’s cuir. the patchouli and vetiver are quite noticeable, all tied together with a whiff of incense and spice. it wears very close to the skin (projection is minimal) but longevity is really good, 8hrs later it’s still there and easily indentifiable, it’s one tenacious beast. overpriced but absolutely gorgeous.
    **update** in the drydown i find even more similarities to guerlain’s cuir de russie. recommended.
