Beautiful. Rochas Lui in one word. I had it a while back, used up my bottle and then shocker, could'nt find it anymore. Now I finally found my "precious" again thanks to our dear Mohit and got a second bottle as back up as well.It has a sharp citrus opening but once the woody note from the cedar and the vanilla, Patchouli and amber blend in, olfactory heaven. warm, rich, and comfortable.
The only other perfume I feel the same about is Lutens' Chergui. In fact they evoke a similar vibe( they do not smell alike) for me even though they use very different ingredients. I wear one of them usually when I am spending the day by myself and want to smell good for myself.
I do get compliments on this all the time. Good projection for about 4 hours and excellent longevity, 8 hours plus easily with 4 sprays. I would happily wear this all the time if it wasnt discontinued and I am trying to make my bottle last. Whoever decided to pull the plug on this one and discontinue it needs to be put in a straitjacket and locked up because they are certifiably insane. If anybody at Rochas is reading this, bring Lui back. I promise to buy it for the rest of my life. Outstanding frag. 9.5/10
