    Hi everybody, thanks so much for this really useful information! I've jotted down all the recommendations I'm not familiar with - which is most of them! - and will be sending off for some samples.
    Baykat, yes, we do share similar tastes, and I can easily get a sample of Pour Une Femme from Les Senteurs, so will be doing this. They also stock Diptyque, so are a very useful resource. I did test Sa Majeste from one of their samples, but agree with you - it was nice, but not great. More green sap than perfumed petal, IMHO.
    And special thanks, RHM, for the links. I've downloaded the Sniffapalooza sections, but didn't realize that you were involved with that. It's a beautiful piece of work.
    I think I'd probably love the Creed, but it would be way too expensive for me, especially as I'm saving up to get a bottle of Lyric Woman one day ...
    It's great that so many other people love rose scents. Sometimes I get the feeling that Americans don't really go for them, think they're old lady scents, but for us in England we are besotted with roses! We grow them, bring them into our houses, and whenever possible, wear their fragrance. Rose is actually the first scent I can remember, from burying my head in a huge bunch of roses from the garden when I was two years old. It was love at first sniff!

    Stella Rose Absolute Intense lasts pretty well on me. I did not like the original Stella very much, and the longevity was not good either. But my favorite is Montale Oud Roses Petals. It has been on my wishlist forever.

    I second Creed Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare, I sampled it recently and it stayed on forever - could even smell it the next day AFTER showering.

    Can't wait to try the Creed everyone recommends! But I can't find anywhere that will send a sample of it - any ideas?
    Also, Heartwood, thanks for enlightening me about the wenge wood. It's not that I didn't like Paestum Rose, but to me it smells exactly like the glue they put on sticking plasters. You know, the ones where you peel back the paper and put the plaster over a booboo! I like both smells, but don't want to wear them all day.
    Is wenge a new ingredient? Haven't heard of it before. But all the woods seem to be getting popular now. I'd like my long-lasting rose scents not to have them, if possible, except for cedar, which is gorgeous!

    Well I went ahead and ordered Fleurs de Bulgarie - I don't like the tea note in the Fleurs de The Bulgare .

    Have ordered a bunch of samples from Lucky Scent and The Perfumed Court, based on above recommendations - they'll take a couple of weeks to get to me from the USA, and meanwhile I will order what samples I can from Les Senteurs. Many, many thanks! At the very least I shall have a great time with the samples!

    1876 Mata Hari by Historires de Parfums is a gorgeous rose dominant scent. A very lovely basenoter gave this to me and it's one I would never would have thought of.

    Une Rose has little competition. I also love Joy but the perfume ,I think on the whole the perfume quality of anything is best.

    Valerie- welcome to Basenotes ! I also adore Joy in parfum extrait. Hopefully I will be getting my sample of Une Rose soon - can't wait to try it.

    Hi! I used to love Joy, but I got what I think must have been either a reformulation or a knock-off from a discount on-line company and was very disappointed. Got lots of honey, osmanthus and tea, and very little jasmine or rose. I'm looking forward to more samples arriving soon, including Une Rose and Une Rose Chypree, plus a gorgeous little sample bottle of Cabaret! Ormonde Jayne sent me samples of Ta'if, Tolu and Tiare (I only asked for Ta'if) at no charge and very quickly! Am impressed with their service. And I like Ta'if very much - so much I may have to get a whole bottle when the sample is finished! The only thing I didn't like about Ta'if was its packaging, which is a bright orange box. The perfume is strong but also tasteful, IMHO, so they could've gone with a more tasteful package in keeping with the scent. But who cares! The box stays in the dresser drawer, after all.
    This thread has been incredibly helpful.

    I got my sample of Une Rose- it is marvellous ! It's just a wonderful rose soliflore and dreamy.
    Or et Noir by Caron is also a lovely lovely rose.
    All this rose talk .... I am waiting for a sampler set of rose absolutes and ottos now.

    Default Re: Which rose-dominant scents have good longevity?

    Une Rose is probably "it", but it's a tad too green to fulfill my rose dreams and its sillage goes back to a mere skin scent after an hour or so on my skin. Lyric Woman has beguiled me up to my personal top 3 currently, but don't be too disappointed with regard to longevity (spray on fabric too) and sillage (after 2-3 hours). I consider it a heavenly, other-worldly beautiful perfume and forgive it its limited length of time it stays with me I can only speak for Black Aoud (Montale), but there are many more in their line, but its longevity (even on me) is unique and it does me quite well when I long for a rose.

    aaaaaaaaaaaaah, I forgot "Oha" by Teo Cabanel - too 'feminine' for me to make me feel really comfortable, but a wonderful Bulgarian rose in a very elegant "setting".

    Default Re: Which rose-dominant scents have good longevity?

    China Rose by Floris or Nahema by Guerlain are my favorite rose scents. They stay true 10 hours later, at least on my skin. I like Tea Rose by Perfumers' Workshop on others but it turns metallic on me.

    Ta'if is growing on me every day - a really lovely, rose-filled scent.
    Mimi Gardenia, your sampler set sounds amazing! Where can I order one? Or maybe I'm too much of a novice to be able to appreciate it - probably!

    Well, I take courage from the fact that although I'm very new to writing about and really appreciating perfume, I've worn scent for years and years and couldn't imagine life without it! So I went ahead and ordered myself some rose samplers, and I shall experiment. I think I'll mainly be using them to beef up the rose notes of existing scents, but I've also worn them alone in the past, as perfumes. I had a beautiful rose absolute from Cairo years ago, and another from India, but they have long since faded so I look forward to my sample set.
    And my Cabaret sample arrived yesterday and it is a revelation! I'd never heard of that perfume, but it is lovely, very elegant and sophisticated and the rose notes come through loud and clear. It lasted several hours.

    Bvlgari Rose essential EDP lasted for hours on me but am new to this game so can't say much more than that, sorry! (Have been trying out Perfumed Court for samples so I can extend my fragrance knowledge). I hope you find what you're looking for :-)

    Le Maroc Pour Elle is beautiful, isn't it? My favourite of the Tauers. Some I find a little harsh, and I much prefer softer, more subtle scents.
    So far in this rose-scented voyage I've found Ta'if and Cabaret to be my favourites. Now have a 50ml EdP of Ta'if and don't think I'll ever tire of it. It's just so good-hearted and sunny!

    This is a great rec. It's very long-lasting.

    I am adding Montale's Crystal Flowers, a 'pure' rose, that lasted for AGES on me. I put on a dab before bed, and awoke with the smell filling my room. Really nice, too. A total surprise.be

    I re-tested Malle Une Rose at Barney's this evening-- sprayed 3 times on chest-- and now it's 5 hours later and it is still going strong. Maybe a tad too strong, even.

    Une Rose is very strong - sprayed once in the evening and I smelt it all night long - actually kept waking me up !

    Just added Jardin Secret to my list of must-samples. Not crazy about Une Rose, I think the patchouli is a bit strong for me, but it certainly lasts - not always a good thing! Une Rose Chypree is a lovely scent and does last well, though.
    I'm wearing Cabaret for the third day in a row and really like it, as the incense never dominates the rose, they just harmonize nicely, and it last a long time on me.
    Tried Ayala Moriel's tip and put jojoba oil on my pulse points before testing a scent, and it really works well. Gives me about twice my usual longevity. I must have very dry skin.
    Also, Mimi Gardenia, your idea of getting samples of rose absolutes and essentielles is really good, and I went ahead and got a Rose Absolute from Hermitage. It's a gorgeous scent, lasts hours!

    I recently discovered Or et Noir from a Perfumed Court decant. If you can get by a funky first 10 minutes (as I find with most great fragrances --- why is that?) Or et Noir settles down to a sumptuous, creamy rose that whispers (rather than yells) for a good 12 hours on me. I'm finding it a great summer alternative to my standby, Eau Sauvage.
