    Histoires de Parfums' rather articulate take on the rose/incense/woods theme. Slightly dusty but never dry, the rose velvety and just a touch soapy, the woods warm but elegantly restrained. In my view ROSAM sits snugly somewhere between By Kilian's Rose Oud and Amouage Lyric Man. That can only mean one thing: it's a winner.

    Rosier than the rosy Boucheron Pour Homme. I enjoy it as much as its older cousin: immensely!

    How many rose -oud -saffron combos have you smelled? too many, last one i smelled was Montale Black Aoud, but that name suits this here scent much better! How can this be interesting? Unique?

    I would call it Roseman:-) , this is the only rose that suits better to men then to women! The drydown is completely woody oud smell, it radiets cleaness, simplicity, freshness, but in unique way, while Montales ouds are somehow moisturized and medicinal, bit heavy,creamy too, this here is light and more abstract

    This is amazingly well balanced scent but the name would suggest its all about roses!No it is not! the rose from the opening fades away slightly but steadily that you can hardly smell it in the drydown, wich lasts forever, longevity and silage are great!

    Another good release from Histoire De Parfum and another oud/rose combo for us. I would say " a more civilized, smoother or less barbarian Black Aoud". This is in my humble opinion a great, barely averagely dense, ambery/oud scent with a citrusy, almost aqueous and slightly dusty rosey initial feel and a following enduring rosey creaminess with a dark-spicy side (patchouli-oud-spices) and a dose of dust, soapiness and air in the whiff. Inhaling this one i feel some Black Aoud and Dark Rose's  deja-vu for sure but i agree that the medicinal side of oud is here not so evident and that the note of amber is prominent although not utterly creamy. The final remarkable note of saffron, on the side of frankincense, introduces a touch of cool spicy air, exoticism and dust in the final wake. The dry down introduces a more sweet, intense and woody kind of base in comparison with the sharper and cooler Black Aoud. The almost dusty-aqueous rosey initial feel evolves towards a wonderful, still cool, balmy rose that is incensey/opaque, soapy, airy but averagely creamy, consistent and mysterious. There is in this phase a sort of opaque mustiness in the air which is anyway not lacking its spark of prickly/floral sophistication. A bold patchouli whispers silently its discreet strength in the general poetic and silky dimension. Another great alchemy  for the lovers of the rose.

    I guess I have to give Rosam a thumbs up rating, but it barely deserves it, IMO. I wish I could do a better job of differentiating it from the competition, but to my nose it smells extremely similar to Black Aoud by Montale to the point of being almost laughable. As Black Aoud is less expensive, at least equally as good and came out first, I don't see any reason to buy Rosam in addition or instead of it, even if it is a good scent outright. Even better, I would buy Portrait of a Lady that is better than both of them IMO, and occupies the same space (albeit it smells completely different). Thumbs up for Rosam, but not recommended for purchase. 3 stars out of 5.

    Among the Edition Rare, Rosam seems to be the overlooked one. The rose/oud combo makes it sound as just another (forgettable) delivery in the overly crowded Dark Rose / Black Aoud / Portrait of a Lady territory: wrong! Rosam doesn't resemble of any of those (more or less) monumental releases of the same "family".

    It opens with an incredibly efemeral yet beautiful watery/transparent rose note joined by subtle citruses and a touch of incense to quickly evolve into a velvety and sort of creamy sweet/woody-oud/ambery base with a remarkable saffron note. The oud note is nowhere similar to the Montale. Forget the medicinal/harsh quality and be prepared for something dark, woody and smooth. The transition from the opening to the drydown occurs pretty soon devoiding the rose of the initial watery and slightly acidic aspect. In this phase Rosam results balmy, enveloping and definitely velvety. Rose is there, remarkable and necessary but unlike other fragrances such as Portrait Of A Lady and Black Aoud, is definitely more blended and sort of restrained.

    On paper and fabric, the opening accord is much more durable and persists also during the drydown which occours much more later than on the skin.

    Probably not as outstanding as Petroleum and Ambrarem, but surely not something to overlook.
