I'm not so sure if it matches the same rose notes as Stella, but "Bollywood or Bust" by Smell Bent is a very nice rose, sandalwood, and spice scent by Smell Bent (smellbent.com). It hovers somewhere between unisex and masculine and has a nice linear spicy rose from initial spray all the way to the sligthly-less-rosy and more sandalwood-y drydown.
Rossy de Palma (Etat Libre d'Orange) with its spice, patchouli, longevity and sillage works for me.
Not really a rose frag per se, but I am in love with Serge Lutens Santal Majuscule which opens with an accord of roses, wood and spice. Awesome.
Not to resurrect a topic past its prime, but I bought Christian Dior's Oud Ispahan while I was in NYC this past weekend and it's a pretty darn amazing rose-oud that leans masculine. However, it has a feel that is very formal, which would limit it's "everyday" wear ability.
Noir de Noir
Lumiere Noire Pour Homme
Some great men's rose scents are:
Rose Nacree du Desert by Guerlain - best incense rose
Rose 31 by Le Labo - sexiest rose
Black Tie by Washington Tremlett - a rose scent for black tie
Noir de Noir by Tom Ford - best party/club rose
Lyric Man by Amouage - most ciivilized men's rose
Lumiere Noire Pour Homme by MFK - most ethereal rose
Portrait of a Lady, Frederic Malle - most natural concept of the smell roses
Midnight Oud by JHAG - best rose oud
current rotation: • mugler cologne • bergamote 22 • galloway • morning chess • le labo the noir 29 • smn patchouli • suedois • menthe fraiche • extreme blue • m/mink • eau d'orange verte • javanese patchouli
Old Spice (not kidding, it's the classic male rose, and very pronounced in the scent)
My favorite rose scents:
Lumière Noire pour Homme
Wow, I just saw Rose 31 mentioned 5 times in the last 24 hours in various places. I think that's a sign that I need to procure a sample. I *just* fell in love with Patchouli 24 (how could I not since I'm an Annick Menardo fanboy?!) from the Le Labo line so I figured I'd sample the rest eventually...gotta ramp up that process, apparently.
I'm in love with Rose d'Arabie from the Armani Privé serie.
A strong seconding for Zino
I usually wear very butch scents (Bois d'Orage, Pure Oud, vintage Polo and Quorum etc.) but got a 4mL sample of Noir de Noir and can't believe how much I keep going back to it for that dark rose nose.
Before you know it I'll be buying ladies' perfume, after that I can only assume it's a short trip to buying ladies' underwear.
I am surprised, that nobody has suggested - Attar Homage from Amouage, exquisite Taif Rose:
