    Default Which rose to try

    Any suggestions for a good daytime rose scent? I love rose but the scents ive tried have missed the mark for me.
    Serge lutens majeste rose and Fredric malle une rose are beautiful but the wriong side of feminine for me.
    Voleur de roses i could wear but it has the boozy gin note i get in Penhaligon elixer which i dont care for.
    No 88 i like as a scent but im not keen on the Edwardian dandy image it projects. The only one i keep going back to is Lyric man but after 3 samples i still wont commit. Perhaps its that toe curling , nose burning first hour i dont know.

    Any suggestions would be gratefully received. I think im really after a woody/insense rose but im open to new directions.

    Have you ever tried Eau d'Italie Paestum Rose? It's a rose with both dewy and resinous, slightly incense-smoked aspects but it's not as soapy as n.88 and doesn't conjure up the dandy image.
    Another one, more on the spicy side, is Dyptique Opone which had rose and saffron.

    My favorite is Tom Ford's Noir de Noir. Sweet/sensual, smokey rose; very unisex fragrance but leans more to the masculine side just a tad imo. From the Private Collection, so you can expect the rich quality that TF does so well.

    Thanks, Diptyque i can try but eau d italie sadly can no longer be found in the uk. I like the description of Paestum and i like the perfumer.

    Try Domenico Caraceni 1913,
    a dignified, barbershoplike gentlemens rose. Formal, easy to pull off and just a great overall frag!

    Just read the script for noir de noir and it sounds like an easier to wear Lyric. Normally the word aoud would scare me of. I work in retail and some of our Middle Eastern customers wear it straight. Wow , i have to hold my breath, but i could see it work with a good balance of florals.

    Caraceni 1913 cant seem to find in London. Pity , i like soapy barber fragrances.

    Have you tried Czech & Speake Dark Rose? It is still my favourite rose fragrance. There is a little aoud in there but it never gets cloying in the way some Montale does (to me). It is also somewhat "ashy" and although listed as "feminine" I find it very masculine. For me it works in every occasion. (I have only tried the vintage by the way - some say it has changed in the last formulation).

    But you've got Penhaligon's! How about Hammam Bouquet? Have you ever tried it? It's probably my favourite rose of them all.

    I second Paestum Rose, Sonoma Scent Studio Vintage Rose and Le Labo Rose 31, and add Les Parfums de Rosine Rose d'Homme (just a teeny bit of leather, warm ambery drydown) and Montale Black Aoud.

    Default Re: Which rose to try

    I like some Penhalgons. I wear Raquets formula and own Love potion no9 which has a bit of rose ( dont have the courage to wear it during the day! A scent for a date). I tried Hamman on a strip and i ignored it for some reason. Also tried le labo but only got a cumin note. Maybe im fussy but florals are tricky. I spent a lot of money on Une fleur de cassie and never wear it.

    Tried Rose de Homme also. Loved the opening but did not get on with the leather note.

    Going to try a sample of Black aoud from e bay. Would also like to try Paestum rose but that will be difficult.
    Thanks for the suggestions.

    This one is as elegant and masculine as they come. Be prepared to answer questions about what you are wearing. It is a hard scent to find anywhere. BTW- it gets called "barbershop-ish" but it is not soapy imo.

    Le Labo Rose 31 is a nice modern take on a male rose scent that is pretty versatile. I wear to work or play.

    I think this is a great rose scent to try for those whose only concern is that they like the smell of the fragrance.

    Luckyscent ships internationally and charges $5.00 for shipping samples, according to their website. They carry Paestum Rose (which I also recommend-- and my husband likes it as well!)

    I had no idea Luckyscent would do international. Reasonable rates too. Thanks.
    Just found an old sample of une rose. Very classy but there is no way i would feel comfortable with it.

    I must try rosissimo.
    Im also very interested in the Montale house. We have Arabic perfume houses in London but the sales techniques are intimidating!
    You are normally shown the " special room" with some shocking prices.

    I agree with all of the praise heaped on Domenico Caraceni and would like to add Aramis 900 to the discussion. 900 has a rose oil smell that doesn't smell like a feminine floral. Also, Zino has a nice rose note and is discontinued but still available and worth a purchase.
