    Default Favorite Rose Note?

    I feel like Rose is probably one of the most overused notes in perfumery due to its ubiquitous nature tied to sensuality and regality.
    If you had to pick though, what are your favorite Rose scents from thus far in your journey?

    I'm not a fan of Rose, but Roja Dove's Amber Aoud was quite nice (should really be called Rose Aoud). I'm also quite fond of Tom Ford's Cafe Rose on my girlfriend's skin.

    “I have often observed that [scents] cause an alteration in me and work upon my spirits according to their several virtues; which makes me approve of what is said, that the use of incense and perfumes in churches, so ancient and so universally received in all nations and religions, was intended to cheer us, and to rouse and purify the senses, the better to fit us for contemplation” - Montaigne

    Rose is not a note I seek out in a perfume but the other day wearing Chanel No 18 the rose note suddenly became very evident. It's a very pretty rose, kind of powdery—smells pink --and I like the way it emerges when it's ready.

    I really like the spice and incense vibe of Le Labo Rose 31

    Some great suggestions already - but one rose I'm trying right now that's blowing me away is
    Impressions Rose Oil Isparta - Ostens

    It's perfumed by Dominique Ropion and it is breathtakingly beautiful. Starts off as the most angelic pure rose oil, and gradually transitions to a sumptuous ambery base. Definitely worth seeking out and trying.
