Abbreviated perfume & fragrance reviews from one man's perspective

Rose d’Homme by Les Parfums de Rosine

5 Comments

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!

      • 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.
