    Default Which perfume with rose and which with vanilla?

    I am a sucker for the smell of vanilla and roses. Can you recommend good vanilla scents and good roses scents?

    Would you be interested in a scent that combines the two? If so, check out Lyric Man by Amouage.

    Welcome to Basenotes, Katjamo! I love rose and vanilla fragrances, too. Some people like them together, as in two fragrances that have already been recommended: Rochas Tocade and Guerlain Nahema. These are highly regarded fragrances, and I recommend that you try them.

    Mixed rose and vanilla scents are not my cup of tea, however.

    Here are a few ROSE fragrances that I especially enjoy:
    Sonoma Scent Studio Velvet Rose – Pure beautiful dew-drenched rose.
    Sonoma Scent Studio Rose Musc – Gorgeous, shimmering ambery rose.
    Frederic Malle Une Rose – Amazing rose with an earthy backdrop.
    Gres Cabaret – A very lovely everday rose with a salty underpinning.
    Ormonde Jayne Ta'if – An exotic, slightly spicy wonder of a rose scent.

    And here are a few VANILLA fragrances that I find special:
    L'Artisan Parfumerie Havana Vanille – Rum, tobacco, and vanilla with a transparent quality. Fantastic!
    L'Artisan Parfumerie Vanilia – Lovely rich vanilla. Reminds me of a nutmeg-dusted custard.
    Parfumerie Generale Felanilla – A beautifully balanced woody vanilla.
    Profumum Vanitas – A classy, exquisite vanilla fragrance.
    Lea St. Barth Lea – A pretty almond-vanilla combo.

    Have fun! I'm sure others will add some great recommendations!

    Do try Diva by Ungaro and Cannabis Rose by Fresh. Two of my favorite roses (that haven't been mentioned yet... I concur with the other recommendations, especially Nahema and Cabaret).

    For vanilla, I tend to like my vanilla, well not so vanilla-- so if you want to test some quirkier ones:

    Shalimar--dark, smokey, animalic vanilla--THE classic
    Bvlgari Black--tea, tar, and rubber vanilla
    Bal a Versailles--floral, musky, almost dirty vanilla
    Chanel Coco--spicy, floral incense and vanilla
    Gucci edp--dark, bitter orange vanilla
    Van Cleef and Arpels Vanille Orchidee--just sumptuous tropical vanilla
    I offer you perfume,
    More for its pleasure than for yours;
    You perfume perfume.

    For rose based scents, I would recommend:
    Paris (Yves St-Laurent)
    Tea Rose (The Perfumers Workshop)
    Rose Absolue (Yves Rocher)

    I'm not a big rose fan. But my favorite roses are:
    - CB I Hate Perfume Tea/Rose
    - Hermes Hermessence Rose Ikebana
    - ElizabethW Rose

    My favorite vanilla:
    - Indult Tihota. And I can't afford it. (Sob.)
    - Another vote for Bvlgari Black.

    +1 on the above. While on Sonoma Scent Studio you should also give their Vintage Rose a try. Classy - with an old world charm about it.

    Other roses:
    Sa Majeste de la Rose by Serge Lutens - lush, dewy fresh roses v similar to Velvet Rose.

    Other vanilla recs:-
    Un Bois Vanille by Serge Lutens - multifaceted gem of a vanilla
    Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain - effervescent yet smoldering vanilla

    I too prefer to keep rose & vanilla separate as I don't find them complimentary.

    I would recommend Rose Essentielle by BULGARI or MONTALE-Crystal flowers(which I sampled it last week and 2 ladies liked it)

    Roses I recommend:

    Rich roses:
    Creed Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare (not to be confused with their similarly-named Fleurs de Bulgarie, a very different scent.) Unfortunately, this is only sold in an 8.4 oz. bottle.
    3 by Annick Goutal: Rose Absolue (a blend of 6 roses), Ce Soir Ou Jamais (a citrusy, potpourri-like rose) and Quel Amour! EdP (a jammy, berry rose). The EdT is easier to find but it is a bit less rose-y

    Simple, fresh rose:
    Woods of Windsor True Rose EdP (available on Amazon)-- quite affordable, and there are matching body products
    Yardley English Rose-- available from time to time on eBay and elsewhere.

    Woodsy rose:
    Eau d'Italie Paestum Rose-- samples available at Aedes.com
    Miller et Bertaux Shanti Shanti

    Rose and violets:
    YSL Paris-- be aware the EdP is sweeter than the EdT (I prefer the EdT)
    YSL Paris Jardins Romantiques --roses and fresh grass, mandarin, lilac, sandalwood

    All sorts of fun variations on roses:
    Les Parfums de Rosine has 17 rose-based perfumes. A set of 17 (2 ml. each) samples is available from the website for 18 Euros, shipping included: http://www.les-parfums-de-rosine.com...um&id_gamme=19.

    I may think of more later....I love roses too!

    An interesting take on the rose and vanilla theme is Caron's Parfum Sacre; it's not rose and it's not vanilla but something more. A more traditional rose and vanilla is Annick Goutal's Ce Soir Ou Jamais. For straight vanilla, Shalimar is the reference point. And a good straight rose is Goutal's Rose Absolue. YSL's Paris and the Paris LE flankers are all quite wonderful interpretations of the rose.

    For rose:
    • Lady Vengeance by Juliette Has a Gun: Bulgarian rose, vanilla, patchouli
    • Yves Rocher Rose Absolue
    • Seconding Hauanani's rec of Gres Cabaret
    • Seconding Chicken Freak's rec of Hermès Hermèssence Rose Ikebana


    For basic vanilla

    • i Profumi di Firenze Vaniglia del Madagascar
    • Yves Rocher Bourbon Vanille
    • Mistral Balinese Vanilla
    • L'Aromarine Vanille


    For vanilla with something extra:

    • Antica Farmacista Vaniglia, Bourbon, and Mandarino (orange creamsicle)
    • Guerlain Spiritueuese Double Vanille (boozy, smoky vanilla) <-- my five-star favorite
    • Guerlain Angelique Noire (angelica, bergamot, vanilla)
    • Yves Rocher Néonatura Cocoon (cocoa, vanilla, patchouli)
    .
    Sniff and let sniff.

    I would turn straight and hit on you in case you wore Hammam Bouquet. HB is the best rose scent.

    I never realized how much I loved rose until I tried Lumiere Noire Pour Femme (Francis Kurkdjian), which I fell head over heels in love with at first sniff, the sexiest rose I've ever smelled. But I adore the softer Tocade, too, and would second that notion.

    Might be a stretch but Angel by Thierry Mugler...its definitely got the vanilla.

    A guy's fragrance but Givenchy Pi is extremely sweet and borderline vanilla (its got benzoin, which has a marshmallow+vanilla vibe)
