    Default Looking for a sweet coffee and/or a Bulgarian Rose fragrance

    title says it all; but to elaborate on the rose, I want the rose note to be very noticeable, not just hanging out in the background

    Dang, beat me to Attar (Montale). I love Black Aoud, but Attar is probably my favorite rose-aoud Montale.

    Try Rose Ikebana in the Hermessence line of Hermes. The rose is really pronounced but there's something to it that make it tolerable on a man's skin

    So guys, if I blindfold you and make you smell roses from different parts of the world, you'll be able to tell the Bulgarian from the Damascene, or from the Turkish or even from the Taif rose? WOW! What noses!

    On the internet, KV, sure I'll say I can. And I only wear the nicest clothes ever.

    Naaaaa, I can't tell the difference between roses. I've read that it's bulgarian rose in L'Ombre dans l'Eau though. If that's even accurate I couldn't really say.

    But I sure look nice sitting here at the computer.

    John Varvatos Rock Volume 1, though coffee isn't really dominate (the rose is, however).

    Oh Chris, you definitely look nice there at the computer
    Well, contrary to what my question might have presumed, it IS easy to tell the diffrences between the NATURAL roses.
    Trust me, if you spend some time sniffing those roses (from those different parts of the world), you'll tell them apart blindfolded.
    There is a distinct depth of character to each of them, and the most unique and strong has to be the Taif rose. It exudes extreme opulence in the air. We call it in Arabic "ward baladi", ie "local rose" which vs. "foreign rose" means: the rose that has the real essence.
    The loveliest rose aroma to me is the Red Jouri of Damascus. Velvety melancholic rose. It has less petals than the famous Damascene (pink) rose and projects much less, yet its distinct aroma makes it the most gorgeous of all roses.

    Now, I do find it difficult to tell the extracts from each other but not the natural roses. Only Taif oil I'd be able to tell apart from othres.
