    I haven't tried Black Tie by Washington Tremlett or Rose Oud by By Kilian.

    It really depends on what you want from a rose. What I want from a rose is "lightness" and beauty, my list is as follows:

    Lyric by Amouage
    Rose 31 Le Labo
    Black Aoud Montale
    No. 88 (I am not a fan of this)

    Lyric and Rose 31 are two of my highest rated fragrances. Lyric is a pure rose, utterly beautiful. Le Labo is a soapy rose, more manly than Lyric. Black Aoud doesn't strike me as a rose fragrance to be honest. Definitely try this beast before coming to a conclusion. I LOVE Black Aoud, but I LOVE the other two more, all 3 are extremely good fragrances.

    I've tried a lot of rose scents- a favorite note of mine.

    Rose 31 is tops for me. Contemporary- rosey- manly- woody- spicy. Just got complimented on it last night again.

    Next Caraceni. Elegant as can be.

    Lyric just a bit rosey for me. But I'd probably put that third.

    The others are very nice too, just not my cup of tea. No. 88 is pretty similar to DC 1913, but it has a foul note in it that some people get hit with and some don't. I get slammed with it.

    Deleting what I haven't tried from this list...

    No. 88 by Czech and Speake
    Black Aoud Montale
    Noir de Noir by Tom Ford
    Domenico Caraceni by Domenico Caraceni
    Rose 31 Le Labo
    Une Rose by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle
    Rose Poivree by The Different Company
    Rose Oud by By Kilian

    To your list, I'd add Czech & Speake's Dark Rose, Sonoma Scent Studio's Vintage Rose and Velvet Rose, Eau d'Italie's Paestum Rose, Penhaglion's Elixir and Hammam Bouquet, Serge Lutens' Sa Majeste La Rose and Rose de Nuit, Diptyque's L'Ombre Dans L'Eau, Creed's Fleurs de Bulgarie, and Homage by Amouage - to start.

    There are a ton of rose fragrances out there; I've barely gotten to sampling a fraction of them, and yet I've found much to love.

    Default Re: Rose for men

    I just want to add that there are some good Montale rose scents out there, other than Black Aoud that is. Black Aoud, to me, gets alot of hype. Which is totally fine. But Aoud Damascus and Deep Rose are pretty good rose scents as well

    Oud and saffron just don't work as well as rose accompaniments for me as sandalwood, incense, green, or chypre' accords.

    Another bunch - I've been brainstorming here: Juliet Has A Gun's Midnight Oud and Citizen Queen, Tauer's Une Rose Chypree, ELDO's Rossy di Palma, Parfums Rosine Rose D'Homme and Twill Rose, L'Artisan's Voluer de Roses, Montale's Ta'if Roses, Ormonde Jayne's Ta'if, and Comme des Garcons' Rose.

    By the way, I'm only recommending roses I know at LEAST two other male Basenoters, not counting me, wear.

    Black Tie
    Black Aoud
    No. 88
    Domenico Caraceni 1913
    Rose 31
    Ungaro III (current formulation)


    FYI, the Ungaro layered with Tea Rose probably moves up a few places.

    I don't think I could ever get away with wearing it but I have seriously considered buying a bottle of Tocade just to sniff when I need a pick-me-up.

    Hell, I may still do.

    +1 Black Aoud

    Acqua di Parma Colonia no doubt. A true, crisp rose without the usual cloying suspects namely vanilla.

    Default Re: Rose for men

    My favorites from many wearings of these are, in order of my preferences:

    (1) Rose 31 Le Labo
    (2) Black Tie Washington Tremlett
    (3) Rose Oud by Killian
    (4) Lyric by Amouge
    (5) Paestum Rose
    (6) Domenico Caraceni
    (7) No. 88

    I think the easiest to enjoy by most men is Black Tie by Washington Tremlett - most everyone who smells this will love it. Rose 31 is the sexiest and biggest attraction - they will follow you home sniffing this one! Rose Oud is the best smelling rose fragrance if you just isolate the rose part of it apart from other ingredients. Probably the two best rose scents not mentioned in this list are Midnight Oud by Juliette Has a Gun and Golden Aoud by Montale - both are fantastic rose, saffron, oud blends.

    If you like saffron and rose in combination, you might try Tom Ford Noir de Noir and Diptyque Opôné.

    №88 C&S from the list.

    I`d add some rose-based feminine chypres, like 1000 Patou, Cabochard Gres, - or Nahema Guerlain and Parfum Sacre Caron.
    Vetiver The Great!!!

    Default Re: Rose for men

    My favourite rose of all time is Hammam Bouquet, so I would definitely add that!

    1. Black Tie by Washington Tremlett

    Default Re: Rose for men

    These two are tied at #1 because they are both sooooo good.
    #1 - Amouage Lyric - ethereal, uplifting rose. Very complex, very good.
    #1 - Montale Black Aoud - smack-you-in-the-face rose oud combination. Luxurious.

    #2 - Le Labo Rose 31 - Fresh, dirty rose. The dirty part i hated from first sniff, and now thats why i LOVE this beast.


    #3 - Domenico Caraceni 1913 - Soapy, fresh rose. Bright is a better word instead of fresh.
    #3 - Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle Une Rose - Very real, smell like a real garden of rose. A tad too feminine for my taste.

    Out of all of those, I only own Noir de Noir, and I think it's beautiful. I'm not a huge rose fan, but this is done so well. Quite possibly one of the most beautiful fragrances I've ever used -- only used for very special events.
