    Question ROSE LIQUEUR: Any recommendations?

    For the past few days I can't seem to get this combo out of my head: fresh roses and boozy liqueur/champagne notes. I've thought about SSS Vintage Rose and Kors. Any other fragrances come to mind? Looking something like a cross between SL Sa Majeste la Rose and SL Douce Amere.

    Have you tried D'Orsay Etiquette Bleue? it's not rosy per se... but is loaded with florals..the twist is, it's woody heart note of rosewood.. rosewood is so amped up, that it almost covers up the intensity of the florals. you may need to spray this one liberally as this ones short lived, 4 hours + 10+ hours if sprayed on fabric..

    another one that comes in mind is PG Cadjmere.

    You can try Bond no. 9 West Side, it's exactly what you're looking for: rose + champagne.

    Idole by Lubin is my current boozy option but an intense booze+rose sounds good right now.

    Lyric Woman is sort of heading in a liqueur direction . . . Malle Une Rose also interesting, maybe more of a wine thing.

    I haven't tried Etiquette Bleue, but D'Orsay's Le Dandy was BY FAR the booziest scent I'd ever smelled. Maybe layer that with whatever your rose preference is.

    Cotton Club by JA seems to fit the bill IMO.

    I think you need to try Washington Tremlett Black Tie.
    It has an incredibly beautiful winey rose note. I am sure you'd love it.

    I remember reading that Bendelirious by Etat Libre D'Orange has both champagne and rose notes. I've never tried it though...

    Rose Aoud by Kilian is a drunken rose. May want to give it a shot.

    I almost suggested this supperman, but honestly Bendelirious is so cherry prominent, that pretty much overshadows the rose. So it smells like cherry and champagne.

    Another recommendation: Fleur de The Rose Bulgare by Creed. I wore this from a sample today and it's very wine/liquer-like in its rendition of high quality rose absolutes. Extremely satisfying juice.
