Latest News


French design house Rochas was founded in 1925 and still wows the world media on the catwalks of Paris today. Their tradition of producing excellent scents began in the late 20s when just a handful of bottles were offered exclusively at their runway shows. Nowadays, it is fortunate that their fragrances can be found the world over. Rochas Globe perhaps hints at a house that has enjoyed acclaim internationally for almost 90 years.

Globe is a scent for men launched in 1991, fast on the heels of the powerhouse fragrance offerings of the 80's, and just a year or two before unisex androgyny of scents such as CK One became the norm. Globe represents one of the last truly masculine offerings before the world turned to stark minimalism in perfumery during the 90s – it is a complex aromatic / leather fragrance.

It opens with a generous green blast of bergamot, lemon, sappy fir needles, coriander and artemisia... hesperidic notes that evoke feelings of being in a leafy garden. It's core is a complex blend of florals... jasmine, rose, lily-of-the-valley and geranium... all of which add a softness to the scent. This unique blend rests on a leathery / woody foundation of labdanum, leather, sandalwood, cedar, patchouli, vetiver and musk.

Globe is a no-nonsense eau de toilette which oozes class and charm. It somehow feels familiar, timeless and universal. Excellent for the office or romantic nights on the town.
