Rose Hates Me! It Hates Me....

Finally, I've got the conclusion... Yes, rose hates me. Damask rose, Turkish rose, Bulgarian rose, Tea rose... they all turn on my skin!
Several monthes ago, while shopping with a friend, we found a small shop was selling Lacome's Mille et Une Roses. My friend gave it a try, and it turned out to be gorgeous on her: smooth, tender, classy yet modern, graceful but no dull feeling at all, a cheerful scent. She bought it right away, and sent me a decant later.
Well, the same scent on my skin isn't pleasant, it smells more greasy, and what worse is, the scent turned sour! After trying it several times, I gave up. It doesn't suit me, that'all, I comfort myself.
The terrible smell didn't stop me from trying another rose scent. Last month, I got a bottle of Rosarium (Shiseido).
Shiseido's Rosarium is a little candy fruity rose scent with somewhat causal feelings. it's much more light weighted, a bit loli-ish just like those jap young girls. This's what I felt when my collage sprayed it on her wrist and in the air. The next day, I decided to wear this scent to work. I regreted right after 10mins! The lovely rose scent smells disgustingly on me once again. There's no rose flower, only GASOLINE! ouh... What a desperate smell! and I have to wear it for the whole day!
It reminds me White Musk Blush from Body Shop, a lightly spiced rose. It's my first rose scent, but I seldom wear it. Why? The spicy notes (Cinnamon + Apple) smell like rotten fruit on me...
Ferre's is too fruity. It smells like sugar syrup.
Stella "performs" a little bit better than above scents, still with a sourness but it's bearable anyway.
Give me a rose scent, save me from all these horrible nightmare!
