    I recently sampled MFK and while it was a nice scent featuring soft balsams, I did not feel it was a great rose fragrance. Let me also add CB I Hate Perfume Tea/Rose, which is exactly that--and black darjeeling tea not any of this new-age green tea one sees in so many recent releases. Also, Creed Fleurs de Bulgarie is a really nice Bulgarian Rose Otto with ambergris though it is a bit feminine.

    Amouage Ubar is my clear favourite at this moment. It's not usually classified as a rose scent, but to me it's just that. Opulent, dirty, sexy and classic among other things.

    Revived this thread because, well, I am thinking of one of these scents:

    Lumiere Noire pour Homme
    Rose 31
    Rose Anonyme

    And the Rose Anonyme I have smelled recently and it was nice and for 195 you get 200 ml, but New York Oud was a touch better, a brighter scent and stellar longevity and projection on me, but it was too piercing of a scent for too long on me, had no mellow out gear.

    So can someone compare and contrast these three roses and tell me about projection and longevity? I can sorta remember what NY Oud smelled like in my mind's eye.

    I am thinking it is a rose scent or one of the APOM's by MFK.

    I had high hopes for Declaration d'Un Soir but the honeymoon sort of cooled off.

    Which leaves me with two I really like.

    Le Labo Rose 31
    Christian Dior Ambre Nuit

    If I want to smell like uplifting essence of rose but still be masculine in fragrance, I go for Oud Silk Mood by MFK. The oud is so different in character from the rose that it acts like a pedestal to display the rose upon.

    If I want to smell great, masculine in aroma with rose as a primary complimentary part of a blend of notes, I go for: Rose 31, Noir de Noir, Agarwoud, Midnight Oud, Rose Nacree du Desert, Le Labo Baie Rose, Rose Anonyme.
    favorites: • l'homme infini divine • heely eau sacree • heely phoenicia • nasomatto pardon • editions f. malle monsieur • mississippi medicine • "on the road" • electric wood • boudicea the victorious chelsea • guerlain neroli outrenoir • tf vert boheme • tf vert de bois • memo african leather • eau des sens •

    Went frag shopping last night, looking for other seasonal Fall goodies but got a chance to smell Atelier's Rose Anonyme. Very nice. Very. I couldn't bring myself to do it last night (a couple of Tom Ford's made the list instead), but this one may have to be on my Spring buy list.

    Reading this thread has paid off already.

    I'm also a rose lover and I want to mention Serge Lutens La Fille De Berlin as nobody mentioned it on this thread.

    The rose-note is done wonderful and I think it's unisex though listed feminine.

    I need to sample a bunch of these since I am on a rose quest. PoaL is not good for me. Rose 31 is likewise, not exciting at all. My favorite of those mentioned that I don't have is Une Rose but its so expensive and nobody is seemingly willing to do a split. Hoping to find that perfect rose centric fragrance that suits me. Something with a touch of stank with rose at the front all the way through. Making a list here...
    1. Epic Man by Amouage (26 wears)
    2. Leather Oud by Christian Dior (25 wears)
    3. M7 by Yves Saint Laurent (20 wears)
    4. Oud Imperial (black) by Perris Monte Carlo (16 wears)
    5. Russian Tea Ritual by Masque (16 wears)
    6. Fate Man by Amouage (14 wears)

    Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    Only rose-centered fragrance I own. I really enjoy the top and middle notes, but I'm not a huge fan of the 'dusty' base. Great performance, though. A very romantic frag imo...

    With all due respect, while I beg to differ, I'm not gonna turn this thread into an Aventus debate. I love the rose accord and the way it is blended with the heart notes but I will concede that it's not a rose dominant scent. That's why it's number 5
