    Default Best masculine rose for hot days?

    I have a small sample of Le Labo Rose 31. It's very fresh and soapy on my skin and I really get lots of rose in this one, almost no cumin at all. I think it should work really well on hot summerdays, at least in theory. What other masculine rose fragrances would work nice in hot weather?

    Ungaro III works quite well for me. And I actually prefer it in the summer.

    Agree. I also like LNoire, but I think LNoir is better for spring. LNoir is too hot for summer.

    Thanks for all your suggestions, I forgot about Amouage Lyric Man. I have some samples of this somewhere, it's really nice too. Guess I really have to try Lumiere Noire, sounds like something I would really love.

    Mine is L'Ombre dans l'Eau by Diptyque.

    Default Re: Best masculine rose for hot days?

    Based on the suggestions so far my ideas may seem a little off track, but here goes: For hot weather I really enjoy Diptyque L'ombre dans l'eau and Hermes Concentre de Pamplemousse Rose.

    L'ombre dans l'eau is a green, slightly watery rose that wears really well in hot weather. irrbloss noted the lack of cumin in Rose 31 as a positive. Similarly, I like L'ombre dans l'eau because it is rose without patchouli. Patchouli is common to many rose fragrances but I find it too overwhelming in the hot, humid weather we have in the SE US. The green, watery aspect of L'ombre makes it shear and refreshing to wear in summer heat.

    Concentre de Pamplemousse Rose is, of course, more about grapefruit than rose but I'm always surprised when my wife tells me how much she likes the rose note in it. if you like Terre d'Hermes you'll probably like Pamplemousse Rose as a go to summer scent. Just be sure to try the Concentre as the cologne formulation doesn't really have much longevity. However, if you're a TdH hater or don't care much for grapefruit, you probably won't care for this.

    I adore Le Labo Rose 31 - I do believe this one will do extremely well in the Summer, however to be honest with you, There is no Rose at all on it!

    Etro New Tradition. A fresh and airy rose/white musk with patchouli to give it a little spicy backbone.

    I agree with these two recommendations, even though I don't own either one.

    I will add another, which is technically not a rose scent, but it has a strong rose note in it: Colonia by Acqua di Parma.

    Yes that's a lovely fragrance. That reminds me to add Penhaligon's Castile to the list too.

    I've never tried Une Rose, but "fresh" seems to be the keyword in all the descriptions I've read, which makes it sound appropriate for warm weather.
