    Lumiere Noir Pour Homme is excellent. Very classy, very refined, very elegant. Noir de Noir is another brilliant rose fragrance; projects and lasts as you would expect from Tom Ford's private line. Also, a good cheapie, which some compare to Rose 31 (I haven't smelt the Le Labo it so can't attest to it either way) is Khaliji by Al Rehab. If you're based in the UK, you can pick up a 30ml EDP for around £3.00

    Aramis 900 has a great non-sweet rose oil scent. If you can still find it, Dominico Caraceni is a great rose and incense fragrance. It's very formal, though. Lorenzo Villoresi Musk is a nice powdery rose. Muscs Koublai Khan smells like a man's balls lightly dusted with rose powder.

    Edit: I forgot Azzaro Acteur - leathery rose.

    Amouage Homage is a very potent and beautiful rose, and Tribute is a smokier rose that is out of this world! These are attars so are quite expensive but super concentrated. I personally prefer Tribute out of the two, as the rose goes well with the smoky frankincense.

    Also +1 for Highness Rose, but you'd be lucky to find it - and it would probably cost more than the attars mentioned above!

    Just tried the new Rose Anonyme by Atelier at Scent Bar. Terrific, well blended rose! Not heady or overpowering, and quite unisex.

    I'm quite a fan of these rose scents:

    MFK Lumiere Noire pour Homme
    FM Portrait of a Lady
    FM Une Rose
    Kilian Rose Oud
    Tom Ford Noir de Noir
    Creed Windsor
    Eau d'Italie Paestum Rose

    If you really enjoy oud, then I'd lean more towards the Kilian and Noir de Noir.

    Creed's Windsor is the benchmark; I also like Penhaligon's Hammam Bouquet and, although more wood than rose, Chanel Egoiste (not platinum).

    I own and love Rose 31, Noir de Noir, and a small decant of Lyric.

    I echo the comments regarding Portrait of a Lady, and also enjoy Rose Oud By Kilian both of which i've sampled heavily. Really need to get my hands on a sample of Windsor too.

    My personal favourite rose is Turkish rose, but Bulgarian is also great and is the preferred rose used in Guerlain's fragrances.

    Rose is no doubt in my top 5 favourite notes.
