    Chanel Egoiste has a great rosewood note and I agree with the Ungaro 3 recommendations.

    I'm sort of focused on male rose scents of late.

    Le Labo Rose 31.
    Excellent juice. The rose is pretty discreet. Blended with a cumin note that gives it a bit of a "dirty" edge like all the Le Labo line. The rose note not that pronounced to me, but it's first rate. It's their best seller for a reason.

    Domencio Caraceni 1913.
    Really nice. The rose note is dark and lurking in the middle. Something else dominates after drydown- not sure what; tobacco or leather or some blend thereof. I've got a pretty dense sniffer and I can still pick out the rose in the middle. Very masculine.

    C&S No. 88.
    Most people find it very similar to Caraceni. I find it lighter on me. Haven't given it enough of test wear, but it's got a lot of fans.

    Voleur de Roses.
    I go back and forth on this one. It's very nice. Rose and Patchouli. Dark and kind of heavy. On me it feels a little too feminine I fear. In a couple of test wears, I was wondering if I smelled a bit like someone's rich and elderly aunt.

    Amouage Lyric.
    Haven't fully tested this, but in a couple of wrist spray tests, I found it to have the most pronounced and distinct rose note of everything I've tested.

    Egoiste.
    A fantastic frag. I never got the rose out of it, but it is considered a rose frag by most in here. Very nicely executed fragrance.

    Montale Black Aoud.
    Tested a small sample and I like it. The rose is balanced with a sort of incense feel to me. I'll give it another look when I burn through some of my current frags.

    Rose 31 and Caraceni 1913 my faves.

    But don't blind buy anything on our words. If the "funk" of cumin hits you the wrong way, you'll hate Rose 31.

    Caraceni 1913 might come off too heavy and cloying to many.

    Try before you buy.

    I disagree - besides the excellent Egoiste and Iquitos (which have both been mentioned a few times), there's also Acteur by Azzaro.

    Scentemental's post lists others, too.

    One of my favorite cheapies is a rose scent, Perles De Lalique by Lalique. In fact, I wore it a couple days ago and worked nearly as well as other niche's rose scents.

    Since you asked for designer, + 1 to Azzaro Acteur, a dark velvety rose surrounded by musk. You might also go for Yardley's English Rose, a very realistic tea rose, only supported by some other notes, and this one is really cheap too.

    Here are my fav's:

    (More masculine)
    -Rose Poivree by The Different Company
    -Voleur De Roses by L'Artisan Parfumeur
    -Paestem Rose

    (more feminine)
    -Une Rose by Frederic Malle
    -Rose Essentielle by Bvlgari
    -Rose by Comme Des Garcons

    I'm not crazy about them, but others seem to like the Montale Roses, and Rosine's Rose D'Homme and Rose Twill.

Though I think it is probably a little sweeter than purported, is does have magnificent blend of soft roses and musky incense. With a name like Kate Moss, I expected a fougere, but so glad I got this unique floral oriental.
    Thanks for the info. Do you know the exact name of the fragrance please ?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Rose intense, (edp) from Seveline is pretty good.....amazingly cheap (€10) and it says on the box that it's a natural "bio" fragrance.
