Please sample Aoud Homme by M Micallef. In the spirit of full disclosure, does contain rose, but is not rose-y in any respect. The rose mainly counterbalances the bitterness of the oud, which in turn is well supported by saffron. Aoud Homme is all about oud, but in a wearable way. I am yet to come across an oud frag which trumps Aoud Homme, to my nose.
