    But I DO smell a lot of rose in it. If I remember it right, the rose note in this one was called as "Bay Rose" or something like that.

    Overall, it's an excellent fragrance.
    I think you are also referring to the Baie Rose, which JaimeB pointed out that it means Pink Peppercorns.

    No rose to me either. It sounds like your girlfriend doesn't like something in it, but doesn't either know what it is, or isn't able to identify what she's smelling. It's like when people who aren't really into fragrance think everything is "musky," regardless of any actual musk presence.

    She probably just doesn't like a certain note in it and can't quite put her finger on it.

    To jrd4t: I have a tough time accepting it isn't rose in tdh. But I'll accept that if you guys say I'm wrong though because I still have a lot to learn in this arena.

    But, there is a rose note in this fragrance according to FX: http://www.fragrancex.com/products/_..._products.html

    This is slightly off topic, but I do want to be better in this and do you have any recommendations for me to know what exactly rose for men smells like? Thank you.

    Maybe the odors in question need that hyper dimensional smoothing as if they were fixated in aspic to make them at least wearable. But that's a wrong direction, I'm afraid. Don't like to eat through pounds of gelatine in order to get my teeth on a gherkin either.
    Declaring a desire to be fair and then actually going ahead and doing just that are 2 different things IMHO. There is a clear lack of objectivity in your appraisal of TdH.

    To answer the OP: No rose in TdH. It is too dry and mineral in character for any floral accord to come to the fore.

    According to this article it does have rose in it:

    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/168...-d-Herm%C3%A8s.

    8th paragraph the ingredients are noted as "woody notes, including Atlas cedar. It's also a mix of grapefruit, effervescent orange, gunflint, silex, pepper, baies roses, geranium leaves, patchouli, vetiver and balm of benzoin."

    Sorry for the thread dig have just been searching through the forums and thought this might be of interest

    I'd be curious to know what she thinks when you actually do wear a rose scent.

    No, it has too much iso-e-super in it.

    most boring, uninspired, and insipid fragrance ever. defines "overrated".

    Did you ask her why she thinks it's too rosey for you? To me it sounds more like it is too rosey for her tbh.

    Good Lord, no rose, TDH is the driest least floral fragrance I can think of, cedar, cedar, more cedar and some flint. Keep her away from DC 1913.

    Hmm, slightly off topic: could it be the same with The Different Company - Rose Poivre? There's some rose in it, but people complained about it being less than expected. With the reformulation the rose issue was fixed. People complained again, less than preferable stink besides the too generic rose ... .

    No rose, just putting an orange in a corpses mouth burying it along the mediterranean. Letting it sit and rot for a couple of weeks, digging it back up then throwing it into an industrial grinder, dirt and all. Grinding that sucker up and decanting them as we speak!

    Exactly.
    It does have a full helping of Citronellol, and a small bit of Geraniol, but no overt Rose note that has any substance or heft to it ain any way.

    Gonna try layering it with No. 88 .....now.

    I've found that benzoin can, combined with certain other notes, actually simulate the presence of rose. It's far from a rose replica, but there are facets present in it that are shared with rose and it can help extend the perception of rose with a bit of 'olfactory sleight of hand.'
