    Not crazy about any of those three. Personally prefer Rose D'Homme, Twill Rose or Rosissimo as rose scents.

    All of them would work, but PoaL easily smells the best of them, IMO. I would recommend only using one spray to the wrist or chest, however, as it is quite potent stuff.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    All of them seem good. My personal favorite in the trio is PoaL, but all are good for school. As drseid was saying, it's power stuff, so go very light for that environment. On the plus side, it's long lasting so it'll last for the whole day.

    Of the three that you listed, I would choose Noir de Noir by Tom Ford. Bordering on the dramatic, this dark and sensuous scent has good projection and very good longevity.

    For school, be restrained in your application - easy on the trigger.

    As an additional recommendation, may I add: Versace Black Jeans?
    It is one of the few casual male rose scents I know and it's subtle enough not overpower and/or be unsuitable for a
    classroom/auditory/educational institution environment.

    Noir de Noir would be my choice..it's a good one! Yes, light on the application.

    Out of those three I prefer R31 out of sheer personal preference.
    They're very potent. A spray or two.

    for swap/sale:

    I have to say it but I don't think any of them would be suitable for the classroom.

    I'd check out MFK Lumiere Noire pour Homme for a rose for the classroom. Much less risk of overdoing it, and it's a wonderful rose scent that's very versatile.

    Of the three you mentioned, I enjoy NdN and PoaL the most, though perhaps Rose 31 is more appropriate for the classroom.

    Of course, you can wear whatever you feel comfortable with as long as you go easy on the application.
