    Question Your Favourite Designer Brand Rose ?

    Designer mainstream brand fragrances only. No niche please.

    Limited editions and flankers are allowed. Preferably rose dominated fragrances.
    I have tried the quite a few, but I'm still looking, open to suggestions and would be interested to know your own personal favourites.

    These are some I own, but they none have become my holy grail, so I'm still searching :

    Paul Smith Rose
    Diva Rose, (Ungaro)
    Chloe Rose
    Marni Rose
    S.T. Dupont Rose
    Rose Cardin
    RARE PERFUME DECANTS - FACEBOOK (closed group) - Hundreds of ultra rare decants and 1 ml samples available, including Djedi/Nombre Noir/Original Patou Pour Homme/Basala etc...

    My very favorite rose is Paco Rabanne Calandre. Aldehydes, a touch of spices and cream, just right. Not available here in the US anymore, but I have seen it in regular stores in Paris, so perhaps it's available also where you live.

    And my favorite is probably the filthy, skanky rose in Paco Rabanne's La Nuit. But that's coming from an anti-rosarian, so take it with a grain of salt.

    +1 Stella EdP

    Two more suggestions:

    - Not sure if Jo Malone is considered niche in your market, but their Red Roses is quite nice,
    - Narciso Rodriguez for Her EdP is a nice rose and musk combo that has a nice radiance to it.

    Also adding Joop Le Bain, L'Occitane Arlesienne, along with several fragrances (both feminine and masculine, but many of these de facto at the brink of unisex anyway) from the Versace Jeans fragrance range

    I do not think I have one. I have always thought Calligraphy Rose sounded nice, though. Have not tried it or any of the others mentioned. I have Tea Rose. It is okay, but I would not say it is a favourite.

    Me too, on both points.

    Azzaro Acteur is up there as well.

    Of course, both of these are discontinued.

    If you want something approachable and in production: Ungaro III.

    Thanks to everyone for your posts. A lot of love for Stella, (but here in France it is non-existent !!!) I have never seen any shops that stock it, so it would have to be an online blind buy.

    My perfect roses are several of the Springtime Fragrance Paris flankers from YSL. I own 4 of the first 5 and love them all. I *think* my fave might be the Roses des Vergers.

    Now that I think of it, I really love the rose in Coco. It is still one of my all time favourite fragrances.

    Completely forgot about Agent Provocateur. That is another very good fragrance.

    "Stella" by Stella McCartney, I would say, (in my own humble opinion) is a pretty "safe" "Blind buy" if you love the scent of roses! To my nose, it pretty realistically smells like rose blossoms. (More so wild roses I think though..not the hybridized varieties sold as cut flowers in shops that don't always have so much scent!) I just wore "Stella" yesterday actually, from a free sample tube I got at Sephora! (Actually..come to think of it..I'm really surprised that Sephora here in Canada, where I live, carries the Stella McCartney fragrances and that Sephora in France, which is the original parent company, wouldn't!! I guess it has to do with licensing??) But yeah..if you love rose perfume, I would say that it's okay for you to go ahead and blind buy that one! I don't think you'll hate it!

    I would also recommend "Rose Absolue" from Yves Rocher.

    My favorite rose perfume was discontinued, Victoria’s Secret “So In Love”. It was a musky rose and I absolutely loved it. I was complimented when I wore it. My body chemistry and So In Love were soulmates. I recently discovered a similar scent that reminds me of So In Love, Frederic Malle’s “Une Rose”. I couldn’t believe I had found true love once again. Like before, I received compliments every time I wore it. One time in particular, it was the end of my shift (12 hrs) and I had about 10 hot flashes so far lol. I went to the pharmacy to pick up a med for my patient. The pharmicist said that I smelled so good and asked me what I was wearing. I was like....You can still smell me? Lol! I officially fell in love with Une Rose.

    My other favorite roses are....
    Si Rose Signature
    Aromatics Elixir
    Rose 31
    Tory Burch Absolu
