    I think Voleur de Roses is a georgeous fragrance. Zino Davidoff is also a rose-noted fragrance and is really enjoyable year round.

    Of the Montales I've tried:

    Attar - everything that previous posters have mentioned

    Aoud Damascus - a bit richer than Attar, not as nose-hair-tickling in the top notes

    Roses Musk - on the femme side, but a man who really liked this could make it work

    Now for an ultra-butch rose that I haven't seen mentioned yet: Tenere by Paco Rabanne. Dry and handsome.

    The best rose out of all of those is Homage Attar. This is THE most beautiful rose scent I have ever smelled..

    Oh - how did I forget Homage? I think since it's reserved only for really special occasions, it didn't cross my mind, but I agree that it's one of the most spectacular rose scent, and beautifully blended. Its evolution is also stunning.

    Etat Libre's Rossy de Palma
    and Knowing by Lauder.
    Why hasn't anyone done a gourmand rose? Or have they?

    CdG Rose: rose, vanilla and a big raspberry note. Smells like dessert. I've also heard that PG's Brulure de Rose is also foody.

    My favorite rose is Rose Poivree

    I tried:
    Hammam Bouquet - smells more like fermenting fruit to me
    C&S No 88 - The dry down is nice but it is a rough ride getting there
    Black Aoud - I will wear this (since I have 5ml of it) but it reminds me of nice scented bug spray.

    I would like to try Le Labo Rose 31 some day also

    ...but Rose Poirvree is the one that does it for me.

    If you like/wished you could like Noir de Noir, you owe it to yourself to sample Caron Secret Oud.........it starts off rich, sweet, opulent and very boozy....on the dry down you'll get wafts of something that will remind you of NdN, but much more wearable (for me anyway), and not as OTT....a beautiful fragrance

    this truly was the surprise find of our trip, it has me in its grasp..........

    Notes: OUD WOOD, Atlas CEDARWOOD, SAFFRON MUSK, JATAMANSI, JASMINE, DAMASK ROSE ABSOLUTE, Grey-haired ROCKROSE*, AMBER

    I'd go with Czech & Speake no. 88, Washington Tremlett Black Tie, and for a zingy, unisex rose water, Creed Fleur de The Rose Bulgare

    You can order them from luckyscents website. They tell you on the Homage page that the vial will be small taking into consideration the density of the oil. Believe me it's just a very few drops but then again, you are cautioned to use a tooth pick to apply it. Also not to sniff the open container else you get olfactory overload. Wish I'd read that before I DID It! lol

    I should mention also, I made the mistake of getting a sample of FM's Portrait of a Lady. Best smelling stuff I've EVER smelled in the way of Roses. Went into the city to their boutique and blew a pocketful O' Money while getting that one. I should have left well enough alone. Maybe you'll have better scents that I did.

    For me, it has to be Le Labo Rose 31. Got introduced to it last year and have since gone through a bottle. Not too spicy or powdery and suitable for both warm and cool weather.

    Of I had tried (Some imaginary visual description here)

    Domenico Caraceni - My sister think it is a sublime scent (on a paper). Definitely a single's scent, a scent of a loner by her description. When I wore it she described it was a loud soapy scent lol.
    Black Aoud - Spice cloud everywhere!
    Voleur de Roses - Thought as a imaginary Casino Royale opening type animation, where dark red roses bloom around me.
    C&S No.88 current formulation - At first : Victorian gentleman's secret club with a prostitute. Later : Lights-off billiard room with a charcoal suit figure who is leaning to his billiard table.

    So I would pick Domenico Caraceni on paper for the best rose.

    I don't know about best but Maison Francis Kurkdjian's Cologne pour le Soir is a great rose scent. The spring wild roses are just beginning to bloom in the PacNW, those little light purple ones about the size of a fingernail, and CplS smells a lot like them.

    I'm not long into the fragrance game but I must admit this is a note I'm finding a challenge. Love the roses in my garden, but on my skin? Sampled a few, Several Montales, Domenico Caraceni 1913 (wanted to love this, respect it, but it doesn't agree with me for some reason) and Washington Tremlett's Black Tie. Black Tie is probably the only one to date I could see myself wearing on a regular basis. Given my preference for Black Tie any suggestions for what I might look at trying?
