Abbreviated perfume & fragrance reviews from one man's perspective

Rose d’Homme by Les Parfums de Rosine


One of the hardest things about loving scents is that since you are dealing with something that cannot be seen, you have to sometimes take a leap of faith and purchase a scent that might sound interesting to you and hope that it works out.  I don’t remember where I read about this fragrance but it really piqued my interest; a rose fragrance for men!  I asked for and received a bottle for Christmas.  I am happy to say that I am in love with this fragrance.  When initially applied you smell the rose, but then as it starts to dry you have a very warm leather scent.  I was worried that it would be too feminine, but it isn’t in the least.  It is one of those scents that you won’t smell for a while and then all of a sudden you’ll catch a whiff of the warmth of the scent.  It really is a happy surprise!  Also note, that this is an eau de Parfum rather than cologne.  And for a parfum it’s pretty reasonable in cost.

The following is from the Les Parfums de Rosine website:

The man who wears it belongs to a new generation of men: sophisticated, multi sensorial and free to choose his own elegance. Rose d’Homme is made with the famous “rose note” created by Rosine. It belongs to the olfactory family: Woody rose.

The perfume was created by Marie-Hélène Rogeon and François Robert in 2005.
It is sophisticated, surprising and vibrant. Rose d’Homme is not composing on a classical structure Head/Heart/Base. The Vetyver-Lavender base is combined with the opulent Rosine Rose and: Citrus, Bergamot, Patchouli, Vanilla, Herbal notes, Jasmine, Tangerine and Leather.

  1. Rose and Leather….I bet there are a few thorns in that garden. I think I want to go exploring. This sounds wonderful!


    • L – Funny you should just comment on this right now. This is one of the scents that I teeter on ambivalence with. I put it on for the first time in probably 4 months ago and remembered just how different and unique it is. I figured out that it’s not going to be one of those scents that I would wear on a daily basis, but at the right time and place it can be perfect. And it lasts forever. Spritz a few drops on and you can still smell it 24 hours later!


      • Talk about longevity! LOL.


      • I’ve heard about this one from Victoria from her BoisdeJasmin blog on rose scents. I will have to sniff out a sample to try very soon.


        • I have to admit, after smelling many a rose perfumes this past year, I find that this gets a bit heavy. It’s marketed to men, as such, the leather and the rose just seem weighted. Of course it’s sold at a good price, but I prefer something like Kilian’s Rose Oud. And Rose d’Homme is definitely a winter scent. It would be hard to wear in the heat of the summer.
