    Tauer PHI Une rose de Kandahar and Montale Black Aoud are awesome to me. I'm looking forward to seeing the responses in this thread. I love rose notes.

    Many good suggestions already. Portrait of a lady is certainly suitable, it has a strong, masculine woody ambery base. Twill rose is musky and woody.

    Black Aoud is poorly reformulated, better go with Thirty-Three.

    +1 Declaration d'un Soir
    +1 Portrait of a Lady
    + 1 Le Labo Rose 31

    and TF Noir de Noir and MFK Lumiere Noire are both fantastic - but may lean too feminine based on your stated concern.

    I’ll add to the suggestion of Tom Ford Noir De Noir and MFK Lumiere Noire Pour Homme. I find these unisex. They are also two of my favorite fragrances.

    For fresh, Rose 31 is great.

    Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme is definitely worth looking into, a rich Rose combined with a masculine but clean patchouli and oud.

    For something more affordable and middle eastern, Montale has some good offerings but Black Aoud is no longer one of them. Try Montale Aoud Purple Rose for a rich Rose-Oud combination with added black currant for a point of interest.

    For more value choices, Mancera do rich roses as good as anyone near their price bracket. Try Black Line. If you want something with nice aquatic nuances, Gold Intensitive Aoud is gorgeous.

    I despaired of a rose that way not so feminine until I discovered Rose Noir, Byredo. Perfect, and I won't use the others. Rose Noir is Rose with a cedar backdrop. Rose and wood.

    Creed Royal Mayfair awesome, but is rose mixed with eucalyptus. Still beautiful.

    Yeah Rose Noir is great, gets better the longer it is on skin. The woods and Oakmoss make it a comfortable wear for men

    Eau d'Italie - Paestum Rose
    Amouage Lyric Man

    TF Noir de Noir is a pure perfection though on my skin it smells too feminine unfortunately.
