I second that notion. A wonderful wet trampled rose in the earth sort of scent.
Burberry Brit has a very faint hint of rose to me, with ginger and baking spice being much more prevalent to my nose.
Santalia is an Australian scent (created by the founder of L'Artisan and Maître Parfumeur et Gantier, Jean LaPorte) that blends Moroccan rose and Australian sandalwood. It is marketed as unisex, but I find it leaning more towards the feminine side, especially in the opening. During the drydown the sandalwood emerges and becomes soft and soothing. I never wear it outside the house, but find it very relaxing at night if I'm having a hard time getting to sleep. I'm quirky like that.[/quote]
I feel the same way with Creed MI. It's just too 'fruity cutey' watermelon-like in the beginning, only when the salty/aquatic/earthy elements come forward is when I feel more 'masculinely comfortable' in it!
I'm still eyeing out a bottle of Rose Ikebana, but afraid of how the word "Rose" is the first word in the title of the scent, not to mention the bottle is PINK!!!!
