My absolute FAVORITE scent!!

I've been wearing this since I was 16 years old, that's 20 years ago now. Growing up it was known as "my smell" and it still is today. It's just a shame I can't just go purchase it at any store that carried perfumes like I was able to in the past.

I wear nothing but this!

I have worn only this perfume for the last 25 years, so I'm probably a bit bias :) but nothing has ever come close to it. I've tried others but this is the only one that doesn't feel heavy or overpowering or give me a headache. It actually makes me smile :)

fragrance never gets old

I really can't think of anything negative to say about 212. I've worn it for about 10 years and can't think of any reason to ever change to another fragrance. People have actually stopped me on the street to ask me what my perfume is. One fellow said that he liked it so much, he wanted to know the name of it so he could buy some for his wife. 212 - you are "IT" for me!

This men's cologne 4711 by Muelhens really smells like no other. While on our honeymoon, my new husband and I traveled through Europe and chose gifts for our respective families. I picked up a bottle of this in Great Britain for my dad. He loves it now and won't wear much else. He loves the orchard citrus scent and the fact it doesn't smell really like cologne, just a nice clean manly scent. When my mother-in-law smilingly sniffed him, she said she smelled the wonderful aromas of sandalwood and orange oil, two of her favorite scents. Fortunately we had chosen the unisex blend for her gift, so 4711 by Muelhens became the best gift we brought home for both of them. I think most men would prefer this, and their wives would like for them to use it, ( hint to my own husband ) as it's very non-offensive and just smells so fruity, sexy, outdoors-y and clean.

This splash is " GREAT ". When I'm at work and other people (women the most), ask me what I have on, I tell them Muelhens. They ask, " WHAT!!!!", where can they get it for gifts. I like it for the fresh, clean scent and the big 27oz size it comes in. Honestly, this is the only cologne I use. Great smell at a great price.

Thank you Rochas for showing me that oriental can be fresh at the same time. I have been searching for a scent like Absolu for the longest time, a scent which will be sensual but not too overpowering and sweet. A friend of mine called one of my favourite perfumes "an old ladies' perfume" and I was, like, she is so right. Maybe it's my age or a phase I'm going through but really strong spicy oriental scents that I like so much are starting to be too much for me. This one though is perfect, a perfect ten. At first it is a little aggressive (it's that darn orange) but as minutes go by, it becomes better and better. The middle note is all flowers with some pepper (i can't seem to find a perfume which DOESN'T have pepper in it). Anyway, it ends with something soft and ambery that is simply bewitching. The perfection for me is that, although bewitching, it remains clean and fresh at all times. You know how sometimes all orientals smell alike when they dry down to their base notes? Absolu is not like that, it gets better and better as time passes.

Absolu by Rochas is a unique fragrance comprised of notes of woodsy vanilla and musk that meld together into a well-blended, gorgeous perfume that you will not find in any other fragrance. This is one of my all-time favorites. It is perfectly suited for cold weather, and perfectly warming to the soul. The lasting power is second to none and the bottle is absolutely gorgeous. A true keeper!

This is a fragrance that has many layers which adds to it's enjoyment in wearing. The first layer is bright, sharp with an indication of the depth of the fragrance that unfolds hour by hour. I love this fragrance, I only wish it had more staying power. I will look to see if Rochas makes a perfume in ABSOLU.

For many years I have been wearing ACCENTI by Gucci. A few months ago I was in the lobby of our apartment building on my way to pick up my mail when a man seated nearby remarked "you smell so good. what are you wearing?"Those are the type of comments I receive regularly from friends, family and strangers who get a whiff of accentiACCENTI as I walk by. Now that it is so difficult to find anywhere I will have to TRY another fragrance that incites the same comments. Oh whoa is me! Any suggestions anyone?

Fresh, agreat summer scent, but dissipates all too quickly, like many citrus scents. For a real unique scent, I add lime oil to 4711. Wow! And, it seems to last longer, too!

It's been around forever, and yes, longevity is a problem, but back before air conditioning was ubiquitous, Europeans would splash 4711 on to cool themselves down. Light and citrusy, never offensive, a classic unisex eau de cologne, 4711 has fans the whole world round. If only it lasted a while longer.

Absolu is a deep, richly elegantly vanillic scent with a whisper of sweet citrus and a brush of spice. There are some floral notes, but they are so well-blended that it's difficult to pull them out and define them - rather, they simply lend sophistication to what could otherwise be reduced to a gourmand (albeit sophisticated) fragrance. Lovely.

This is a pretty good scent - oriental but not too overpowering like the most of orientals. Warm but not too sweet. With the right chemistry could be very nice. Not too much vanilla like in the most of other contemporary orientals. My husbandt thinks it has some citrusy notes that he doesn't like, but I think those are some peppery notes,so popular in recently perfumes that I don't enjoy. So I give it 3 stars of 5, for somebody else it could be 5 of 5... I think it could be very good for a winter perfume.

All I can say about this stuff is it's a classic. One of those colognes that my grandfather bathed in then the smell disappeared over the course of 6-7 minutes. There are some other brands where longevity is an issue but this one really takes the cake. One hour after application it really is like you're not wearing anything at all. If you are looking for a cheap, classic scent then this is it. This is the original cologne and there have been many advancements (mainly for the good) in cologne since the release of this. Although it is not offensive in any way I would never buy it for it's scent value, but might consider buying it as an ornament to have around the house. Much like an oak end table.

This was an unsniffed purchase that I got for a song (thank goodness I didn't spend much!). Reading the notes, it sounded like a holy grail type scent for me (I usually love orientals), but once again, my chemistry wreaked havoc with this fragrance. I love the cinnamon/orange note, but it becomes too musky the longer I wear it.

After recieving this perfume today along with Camsir and Arpege, I am feeling just sick from these overly sweet disasterous scents. . Even though as I said earlier, after I just recieved this one just today, that it turned out to be musky & foul smelling. It made me think back to elemetary school to a girl that I knew. Every time I went to her house it reeked of rotting garbage kind of like maybe fruit that needed to be out side in the gargage can.This perfume gets worse as time goes by,as did the others. I am giving all these to the local thrift shop.. Just horrible. I LOVE MY RED DOOR ALL THE MORE!
