    Montale Attar. Everything else is rose patchouli, rose pepper etc. Perfumers seem to want to make a men's rose but are afraid that it might actually smell like roses.

    Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frederic Malle) is my favorite by far...

    Other excellent contenders in order of preference:

    Lalfeorosa (O'driu)
    Vintage JHL (Aramis)
    Vintage No.89 (Floris)
    Lumiere Noir pour Homme (MFK)
    Une Rose (EdP Frederic Malle)
    Rose Nacree du Desert (Guerlain)
    Lyric Man (Amouage)
    Rose Oud (By Kilian)

    There are so many more good ones in a crowded field...
