    Default Which rose-dominant scents have good longevity?

    I posted this 'cos I'm so frustrated with all the reformulations going on and I need to find a rose-based scent with good longevity. I love La Rose de Rosine, and wear it lots, but need some alternatives too. I used to love Parfum Sacre, but guess what, it's been reformulated and doesn't last long on me now. I also love N'Aimez Que Moi, and have an old bottle, but I expect it too will be reformulated before long, if it hasn't already. I like rose scents in general, multi-florals, floral/orientals and floral chypres. I hate Shalimar! I would to find a rose scent, or one containing rose, which will last more than an hour on me.
    Any suggestions gratefully received!

    I highly recommend Sa majeste la rose by Serge Lutens but also L'ombre dans l'eau by diptyque, # 88 by Czech and speake and last but not least Nahema by Guerlain.

    Thanks for your suggestions. I definitely need to sample Rose Poivree, Opone, Rose de Nuit, Rossy de Palma, L'Ombre dans l'Eau and #88! That should keep me busy for a while! I am not familiar with any of these perfumes. I do own and love Nahema, and hope it hasn't been reformulated when I come to buy another bottle. Oud is probably an acquired taste, but I haven't managed to like it yet, so will give oud perfumes a miss. And I quite liked Paestum Rose, but it smelled a bit medicinal on me. The incense note was much sharper than in Parfum Sacre.
    I really appreciate your help!

    IMO, Gres Cabaret is an excellent rose fragrance with good longevity - and not expensive as an added bonus.

    I have Cabaret EDP, and while it is a nice, sheer, modern take on rose, I don't find it lasts that long unless you douse yourself with half the bottle. Two longlasting rose soliflores are Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose and Ombre Rose l'Originale. Both are inexpensive and don't get much love among the perfumista crowd, but get lots of compliments.

    Guerlain Rose Barbare - It's a gorgeous, rose-chypre and it lasts 8 hrs or more on me (in general, I apply scents very lightly). Damn expensive, but worth it.

    Have you tried Ayala Moriel's Roses et Chocolat? Longevity is medium-long (whatever that means!) on me. I think it's great, though I'm not a big fan of rose scents (must be the chocolate). Anyway, a fun niche-y fragrance to sample.

    You can try Montale Roses Musk or Montale Deep Roses. Personally, I prefer Roses Musk, but both are good rose fragrances with great longevity.

    Ormonde Ta'if is definitely worth sampling!

    Creed Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare is excellent and very long lasting. (Note this is diferent from Creed Fleurs de Bulgarie; I cannot imagine why they named two entirely different fragrances with names so similar as to cause confusion.)

    Those are definitely the ones I would have recommended. Sa Majeste is by far my favourite (and most true) rose fragrance. I adore it.

    Very interesting suggestons ! I am not a rose person but I have been craving a delicious true to life fresh rose scent lately. Ordered a sample of Une Rose by Malle.
    I will have to sample Sergie's Sa Majeste La Rose.

    I can still smell Montale Deep Roses on fabric the next day. My favorite rose and very similar to Une Rose but half the price.

    Hi redrose! Two that I've found to have incredible longevity, and they're both very beautiful:

    Frederic Malle Une Rose
    Sonoma Scent Studio Velvet Rose

    Also, Gres Cabaret is a lovely rose blend with good longevity. It's another of my favorites.

    I second the recommendation of the rose scents made by Sonoma Scent Studio. Both Velvet Rose and Vintage Rose are utterly gorgeous, and are very long-lasting on my skin. I think that Laurie Erickson, the perfumer, ships internationally.

    Also recommend:
    Rykiel Rose by Sonya Rykiel
    Ce Soir ou Jamais by Annick Goutal
    Rose Absolute by Yves Rocher
    Nahema by Guerlain
    Fleur de The Rose Bulgarie by Creed
    Une Rose by Frederic Malle

    Rose is one of the most often discussed notes here on the forum. When I entered the word "rose" & clicked on advance search to look in forum & posts, the search engine yielded 7 pages of threads.

    Here's a good one: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/204...highlight=rose

    I love rose fragrances, myself. Check out the four sections of Raphaella's Roses in Sniffapalooza Magazine. http://www.sniffapaloozamagazine.com...sesSERIES.html I wrote the second "forward " for the section.

    Mimi, Homage is one of my favorite smells on earth! It's very intense and soapy.
    But for the money, I frankly prefer Lyric Man and Lyric Woman, Lyric Man being the more 'feminine' of the two.

    All the Amouage rose scents are crazy, in terms of longevity. They last for days.
    They are: Dia Woman, Lyric Man, Lyric Woman, Tribute, and Homage.

    The Sonoma Scent Studio Rose scents are also long-lasting, all of them extrait strength. I love Rose Musc and Vintage Rose, but find Velvet Rose very waxy and candle-like in the drydown stage. Rose Musc is the most complex and interesting of the lot.

    Sisley Soir de Lunealso lasts for ages.

    Hillaire, Brielle- - those all sounds wonderful rose scents. I must try Homage. Nahema and I didn't get on so well - I think I would like pure full bodied roses too.

    I get at least six or eight hours from it, but then most of her fragrances have great longevity on me.

    I concur that Sa Majeste la Rose is also very long lasting, but it's a deeper, fairly lush rose compared with Red Roses (which is almost effervescent, like many other JM scents).

    Redrose- hello!!!! I need to jump in here because first you mention n'aimez que moi ( i own), i like La Rose as well (but didn't buy); and then you brought up Nahema (I own this in parfum strength).

    So i suspect we share similar tastes in rose scents. That said, i want to add a little weight to some of the above: Citizen Queen (I own this too, awesome powdery rose/suede), Rose Barbare (5 stars, but longevity was too short for the price). Creed's Fleur de The (LOVED this, but at $400 let's be real) and Sonoma Scent's Velvet Rose (wear this quickly, i found these faded a bit due to the natural ingredients, or maybe keep in the refridgerator)

    Sa majeste is popping up, but this was 'eh' for me, it wore flat and 'dank'.
    I would also add Caron's pour une Femme, parfum only (no EDP) This is a mouth watering rose, just love it (and you can get it for $68, i think)

    let us know what you find!!!

    Thanks Heartwood ! Seems like I must try both the Lutens and Red Roses !

    Creed Fleur de The Bulgarie ( such a looong name ! ) - I like the beginning but I think the tea note irritated me. I must try again !
