Thread: Male Rose Scent

  1. #1

    Default Male Rose Scent

    Strange question... my girlfriend has Stella by Stella McCartney and I absolutely love it. For those who know of it, is there a more masculine scent that is similar?

    Sorry for the odd question.

    Not familiar with Stella, but Rosissimo by Parfums des Rosine is a nice masculine rose scent IMO.

    Without going into niche (great examples said already) Anais Anais is drier and cleaner, and suitable for men.

    If memory serves me well, Stella is basically a rose-amber composition. What you exactly like about the fragrance? Is the rose part or the ambery part? Do you want something sweet or just a butch masculine rose?

    A long time ago, I was looking for the perfect rose aswell. I find most of the popular ones are either peppered rose (rose poivre), rose with patchouli (voleur de roses, although the older version has a more tolerable amount) or rose with clove etc...

    If you want roses and are not afraid to smell like one, pick up a woman's scent. Or try Montale Attar (rose without the fussy agarwood). Iquitos is nice too, but true rose only in the midnotes.

    Lyric Man by Amouage
    Portrait of a Lady by Frederick Malle
    Black Aoud by Montale
    These are three fantastic rose scents with Black Aoud being the most masculine.

    Not familiar with Stella, but my favorite rose scent: Armani Prive Rose d'Arabie

    Others are Noir de Noir, Cafe Rose, Egoiste, Voleur de Roses, Black Oud, Amouage Lyric Man, and by Kilian's Rose Oud (not very masculine though IMO).

    Probably the most masculine IMO are Lyric Man and Noir de Noir.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Original Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Creed - Aventus
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    6. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    7. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    8. Dior - Homme Sport 2012
    9. Tom Ford - Rive d'Ambre
    10. Creed - Virgin Island Water

    I tried Voleur de Rose and Windsor this afternoon. Windsor for me. Don't know if it's similar to Stella.

    Don't overlook Burberry Brit for men. Very reasonably priced and one of my favorite takes on rose.

    I was just going to say Dior Ambre Nuit too, Its exactly what you're looking for.

    Some of my favourites along with Ambre Nuit would be:

    Armani/Prive - Rose d'Arabie
    Creed - Windsor
    Heeley - Agarwoud Extrait
    Montale - Aoud Damascus (A little feminine but more enjoyable imo than the hugely overrated Black Aoud)

    No particular ranking except for Windsor, which is the best among many very good examples:
    Creed Windsor
    Montale Black Aoud
    Amouage Lyric Man
    MFK Lumiere Noire Pour Homme
    Le Labo Rose 31
    Tom Ford Noir de Noir

    I also like very much Malle's PoaL and Une Rose. I don't find them as clearly meant for men as the others, but they're great rose-based scents and find they work great for me.

    Rosine makes a rose just for men called Rose d'Homme. A rose with leather.

    Also try Hammom Bouquet from Penhaligon's.

    Use the search function. Lot on roses for men.

    My gf wears Stella as well. A similar but more masculine scent would be Lumiere Noire.

    I was also looking for rose masculine and I ended up blind buying zino from all the hype, Is there another rose with a great price point for the quality?

    Does anyone know how if Noir de noir and black aoud are similar? They both share rose+oud notes but NdN only lasts a few hours on me and I hear black aoud lasts all day. I was thinking of purchasing black aoud if they are similar enough.
