    What are your top 5 rose scents that you own or have tried?

    My current list is the following:

    Noir d Noir

    MFK LNPH

    Rose Anyonme (sp?) sampled this and really enjoy it.

    Rose 31

    Lyric Man - don't wear it much these days, just comes off a bit too fem for but i've been tryign to hold on to it to give it another try but just don't think its for me. its a love/hate thing i guess.

    Default Re: Top 5 Rose scents

    For the guys that have lyric in their list, do you all not find it a bit too rosey or just overall feminine?

    I own it and know application can really have a big impact on how ot smells..once did 4-5 sprays and was horrible experience lol

    Peopke mention spices ane incense but I dont get any of that

    - - - Updated - - -

    Keep hearing a lot about black tie as well...is it similar to any other frag?

    I have a sample of Rose 31 but haven't tried it yet. Curious to see if it makes it to my top 5. Also, Portrait of a Lady is a great scent, but too feminine for me. My wife loves it.

    Not exactly a top five, but (with apologies for this not so on-topic reply) one additional recommendation. An underrated (and discontinued) designer rose scent, worthy to be included among the top performers of this category: Ungaro II.

    No "Rose" list in Male Fragrances is complete, without the first strong rose-centered scent: Versace l'Homme (1984).

    Seeing a lot of people with lyric in top 5. Did not expect that.

    Two very different interpretations, but the two I like most are Rose 31 and Black Aoud.

    Me neither.


    I haven't smelled that many rose perfumes in order to say that I have a top 5 but here's what I have and love:

    Black Aoud
    Rose 31
    Lumiere Noire
    Windsor ( I love it but until yesterday I had not realized by myself it had roses. After reading so, I figured it out and like it even more now.
    Noir de Noir

    * Zino (One of my favorite EVER but I would definitely not consider it a rose perfume)
