    Default Non Niche Rose Fragrances

    Rose in a fragrance is one of my favourite smells, but i just can't afford niche products. I'm a student (16) so don't really have the money. Any non niche fragrnces that i may enjoy and afford?

    Roger & Gallet Jean Marie Farina is a classic eau de cologne, and has a very nice rose note in the base - and it is inexpensive.

    Knowing by Estee Lauder is probably my favorite rose chypre of all time, and it is readily available and relatively affordable.

    Of these, Jacques Bogart might be easiest for a 16 year old.

    Guerlain Nahema may be one of the greatest roses, niche or otherwise.

    On the cheap, this is hands down the best I have come across. Great stuff!

    I agree with Mudassir: Cabaret. Affordable and great rose!

    What about Aramis 900? It might not be marketed for a 16 year old, but I think a well dressed, intellectual, and open minded young person could easily pull it off.

    Yves St. Laurent - Elle was quite decent, though just a tad sweet for me.

    The only cheap frag with strong rose that I enjoy is Madness Natural Black. It's a woody rose with some sort of exotic fruit element, not too sweet and definitely not "wet," which can make fruity frags seem too "feminine." The 2.5 oz. testers were selling for less than $20, last time I checked. Sillage and longevity are at least very good (it's an EdT). Another cheapo, also a "woman's," is Cabaret by Gres, but I find it too simple. It bores me quickly.
