Nice...... but....
It just smells like a rose. More exactly like rose oil with alcohol. Very simple and monotonous, which is not necessarily a bad thing. It's quite nice, but somehow I miss something here The durability is not terrific...
I also notice I can get a headache if I exaggerate with the scent

Rose, Rose, Rose and Rose again? No, not today.
I've been looking at this scent for a while now. My passion for rose fragrances was awakened with Kurkdjian's masterpiece "Lumière Noire pour homme". Who does not know this, should change this and as fast as possible.
For me, roses used to be regarded as old wives' plants, which cannot stand for a man in the form of a perfume. I should be mistaken, but I'm a big man.

Normally the fragrance should be flowing now, but today I'm talking about durability and sillage - it's just like that. If we talk about how the whole thing presents itself to the environment, it can be said that it is a noble, gentlemanly fragrance that doesn't strike a third person, that doesn't say "hello, here I am." into the world. He doesn't annoy theatre guests, not the other person in the restaurant, not the guests during a birthday, not the fellow students in the university.
The durability is solid. Etro's composition can bridge a working day.

Mathieu Nardin, the creator of this little water, decided to integrate the rose so that it would not crush its wearer from the first spray. I was not greeted with a loud rose, but rather with spice and resin. A little pepper here, a little cardamom there and a light bergamot that even evoked slightly fruity associations. The elemi resin gave all this a slightly green, earthy note, behind which the still reserved rose hid.
In the course of the fragrance incense, woods and patchouli were added. All this together, whereby it became more and more difficult to smell out individual components, provided for a discreet smoky note, which reminded me briefly of those in Creed's bestsellers - please don't hit them - whose names I don't write down here, since I probably already polarized enough with this one sentence. But no, it's not an Aventus twin - ups ... the name did fall - because the very adult, mature and above all dark rose, whose appearance was absolutely unsweet and without any offensiveness, now gave this earthy-green and woody fragrance the floral impact that was urgently needed to do justice to the name of this little water. She continued to fight her way forward, but never managed to push herself fully into the foreground, as is known from many other rose waters. The "streinige" incense, the green, somewhat musty patchouli as well as the noble woods (they really are noble, by the way), i.e. the components that ultimately dominate the entire fragrance, are absolutely equal to the rose, they always rein in and result in a perfectly symbiotic existence, which is uncomplicated to wear and which I would not necessarily call "ManRose", even if everything comes across very earthy, dark and dirty, because the declaration as "UnisexRose" could also be made. Who already had one or the other of my comments on the screen should not be surprised about this estimation, because I, like many other perfumers, don't think much of artificially built gender barriers.

Finally, I would like to point out that Etro's rose composition cannot scratch the throne of my beloved "Lumière Noire pour homme". That must have said finally simply still.

Thanks for reading.

A dozen roses for the man (7/12)
As a newcomer here, I'm going to try my hand at a series of comments. This is the fourth part.

The motivation, the idea and the criteria
I'm a real fan of the scent of roses (in my youth my mother had Paris from YSL. I found "the hammer") But the rose isn't exactly the one you first come across as part of a men's fragrance. Nevertheless, I think the rose is contained in more and more men's fragrances.
According to the following criteria I have selected 12 of these fragrances and will comment and compare them bit by bit:
- Men fragrance (exception Desert Rose from Urban Scent as unisex fragrance, I simply had to add)
- Rose as heart note (exception: Much ado about the Duke of Penhaligon, I was just in London at the idea)
- Published from the year 2000
- Rating of at least 6.0 with at least 40 ratings
- No Oud (not so mine)
Scent No. 7 is: ManRose (*2017) by Etro
(previously: (1) Lumière Noire pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian, (2) 24 Old Bond Street Triple Extract by Atkinsons, (3) Lyric Man by Amouage, (4) Colonia Ambra by Acqua di Parma), (5) Déclaration d'un Soir by Cartier, (6) Desert Rose by Urban Scents)

The house, the perfumer and the shopping

The most beautiful rose
I was standing in the Nichen department at Galaria Kaufhof Schildergasse by the Creeds.
I was discovered by an Etro representative who foolishly wanted to spray a Creed onto a test strip. He strongly advised me against it and gave me a silk-like cloth instead. By the way, I still have that and use it from time to time as he gave me the following tip: sprinkle with perfume and put a cloth in the wardrobe. Do it sometime ;)...
While we were dabbling a bit about perfumes, he sprayed the ManRose on another cloth in passing. Wow, what an opening.
Etro didn't tell me anything and I probably wouldn't have tested them either, as I was rather (still at the beginning of my perfume journey) on a designer fragrance tour. At home I packed the cloth into a small tupper can and smelled it several times a day for the next 10 days.
I couldn't get the scent out of my head, so it was bought some time later.

I don't know exactly how to describe him... It starts slightly fruity-sweet with a dominant but gentle rose. I can't describe or identify heart and base so well yet, but I think that the scent remains quite linear anyway. He just gets weaker with the times, he is anyway quite mild and unobtrusive.
I actually only smell natural rose almost all the time and in the end maybe something mildly woody, but the scent is almost gone anyway.

What can I say, the fragrance simply smells very beautifully mild, gentle, rosy, noble, better than the other roses that have come under my olfactory bulb so far, neither cooling nor warming, and so not at all masculine.
And very unique and not at all designer scented.

The bottle is pretty and fitting, I also think it's good that the sprayer has very little perfume. Certainly this is the intention of Etro, because you have to lay out their scents.

H&S are fine, but nothing more.

A great fragrance worth testing, especially if you otherwise only call bitter, classic men's fragrances your own. The ManRose extends the scent horizon.
I think it's awesome.

How the man came to the rose
"Should I, or shouldn't I?" I asked myself when I was invited to visit friends last night. I stood in front of my newly acquired perfume "ManRose" by Etro, and wondered whether it would make sense to put it on. "Rose as a straight man, can this go well? What will the others think of me?
Better I test it with my friends than on my next date," I thought, and put it on.

I received the perfume from a friendly saleswoman, after a nice consultation, as one of several Etro samples in December last year.
At home I sprayed it on my wrist at some point for testing. "What a lovely fragrance!"

The rose clearly perceptible, but on a dark, mysterious background.
I smell some resinous and incense, but my amateurish nose can smell more fragrances
so I leave it, don't pretend, and refer to the fragrance pyramid.
But one thing is certain, the fragrance in its entirety is harmonious, makes the ManRose complete;
the rose gets its thorns.

I liked it right from the start, and I wore it on some of the following days
again at home for myself.
The fragrance lasts about 4-6 hours on the skin, for an EdP rather mediocre.
The performance is the first two hours in order, the Sillage perceptible,
in the next few hours he gradually withdraws and becomes very close towards the end.
As expected, he keeps much better on his clothes, about 24h+
That smell just wouldn't let go of me. So I bought it.

I sprayed the perfume several times before going out, on the wrists and neck,
and something on my shirt.
On the way I could occasionally perceive this beautiful scent in the background.
He calmed me down and gave me a good feeling.

Arrived at my friends, as usual, a hug to greet.
Everyone I embraced complimented me on something I smell so good,
and they wanted to know what the scent was. I was relieved.
My doubts had disappeared, the evening was saved.

Rose meets man, man falls in love.

Overcoming borders
With scents, it's often a thing of its own. They are divided into categories such as "chypre" with subgroups, "fougeré" with close relationship, "flowery"... oriental... and much more.
It also makes sense to conduct such "genealogies".
But sometimes the strict division into ladies or gentlemen fragrance annoys me quite a lot.
Because it depends on what the respective "nose" likes, whether "pretty" or "girl"...
I think it's great that there are now many fragrances called "unisex", without "forced classification"..which were "invented" by the fragrance manufacturers anyway, so the society is so "polarized"... Men, women... often jealous of those who dare something (they would like to do it themselves).
But now to the wonderful "Etro" fragrance, "ManRose". (Again such a division, but SAUGUT!!), could also be called DarkRose, SmokedRose or similar.
The fragrance starts off herb-spicy with a clear rose in the background. Velvet, dark, strong...
One thing is certain: this rose has as much in common with sweet powdery "Tütü roses" as sugar and salt. (Although both are white crystals)...
Really purplish-violet, with strong thorns and grown very big.
The cool incense in the background matches the rose blossoms perfectly.
Likewise the patchouli and the woods, which together with the "late rose" "mix up" the scent again so correctly with their tart and earthy presence.
The vetyver is also included in the list of olfactory aromas. And yet "ManRose" holds a secret.
It is one of those fragrances that are simply "Saulecker" and can't be assigned to any gender! And don't SOLLTE!
It has overcome invisible "social" boundaries.
And made a bloody statement.
