Rose is one of the grand old giants and almost an archetype in perfumery. Heavily floral and aromatic, often powdery and even dusty, rose is found in lots of variations and interpretations. But which rose-centered fragrance is your personal favorite?


My own vote goes to Black Aoud – a gorgeously rich and complex interpretation of rose supported by a heavy dose of oud and patchouli. But which one do you like best? Maybe I didn’t even list it?


Note: I’m sure some of you will notice that MFK Lumière Noire pH is missing from this list. I chose to leave LNpH out because it already appeared earlier in my “favorite patchouli” poll a year ago – if you like it, please feel free to vote for it there instead:
