Reviews of Roses Musk

This is yet another cynical rose perfume by Montale. It's simplistic, being a blend of high-pitched synthetic rose, musk and amber. It's not particularly sweet, but there's nonetheless a hint of cloying candy-like attribute now and then (similar to a dozen other Montales). This is in the same ballpark as Aoud Musk, Musk to Musk and several other Montales, and one wouldn't lose out on much if 90% of these were scrapped considering the redundancy.

Sillage and duration are both good, but eventually it's boring, crude, even smelling 'cheap' at times, and outstays its welcome.

Another Basenotes member said it best: this is the worst rose perfume I've ever smelled. It's actually painful to experience, with that jagged, crystalline, weapons-grade Montale musk delivering a sickeningly plasticine fake rose laced with poisonous sugary vanilla overtones and an indescribable chemical vibe that reminds me of cardboard car air freshers. I enjoy a lot of cheap, trashy floral perfumes, but Roses Musk lies beyond even my capacity for appreciation. Smelling it feels like inhaling glass shards while being pummeled with an endlessly looped Muzak version of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" at deafening levels. If Montale had set out to do some kind of ironic, aggressive art project, then I might could say that they succeeded. But as a fragrance for someone's personal use--all I can say is that the prospect is terrifying.

Expecting the heavy and intrusive x+oud(heavily synthetic/sharp) formula deployed that I recall from a number of other Montale products in the past, I recoiled surprisedly, checked the label again and realised that I underestimated this house in my expectation.

The rose was there from the beginning; a light, bright and elegant rose, without depth and heaviness; a bit simple and linear. Still, a very pleasant rose.

After a brief moment another note is evident: a slight greenness with a touch smoky incense, although the latter arises later in the drydown.

The harshness - often a synthetic oud - that characterises some other Montale products is replaced by faint whiffs of white musk in the background, which are more evident towards the end.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

Not a complex rose creation, this daytime sping scent is lighter and much more elegant than I expected. A Montale that gives the rose a chance to shine. 3.25/5.

A women poised in her love,embellished with wholesomeness,splendour and grace taking us on a voyage of metaphorical grandeur of oriental past, present and future.she is a epitome of womanhood. Roses Musk is a true rose scent.this is not something you put on in the morning and forget about.this magic elixir is for anyone that loves nature's most beautiful gift to the earth.not very different and unusual but very successful rose.Glamorous, Layearable,Wearable,Sweet,Lush,Cleanly Sexy and Gorgeously red in its bottle.

It's filled in an exclusive depicting strenghth of this lingering scent,a tantalising mix of rose and musk.It opening with a divine scent of rose the dry down is where this perfume really gets even more intense as the noticeable musk and amber intertwine with the rose and the result is a great scent that one or two drops of this is all you need for rest of the gives men strong internal sensations of feminine sexual power and conflict which is something unique.great for intimate occasion and romantic mood.if you like little bit dark rose you should try this one.


Longevity?Superb on my skin.

It's not only roses and musk... it does have a great jasmine note and vanilla.

Sweet and bright roses with a great animalic note.

Not so heavy neither ethereal.

Better for women, but it's unisex in my opinion

It's like a watered down version of Mancera Roses Vanille.

Reminds me of JHAG Lady Vengeance.

Sillage, lasting power and projection are great.

At first glance, this is a spicy rose with a bit of classic Montale astringency. Dry down is a brooding rose. retaining a bit of astringent musk. Many of Montale fragrances are Rose noted, this is one of the better ones.
