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.
