Perfectly pleasant but not outstanding
One of Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s newest releases is L’Homme A la Rose, a fresh rose scent designed for men, and I think it mostly hits the mark in this respect. It’s fresh, slightly sharp, ever so slightly sweet, but mostly rosy and pleasantly so, with some citruses and spices to create rounded, balanced perfume, some key notes being grapefruit, sage, and amber wood.

This falls into the category of being very nice and easily wearable and versatile, but a bit pricey for lacking boldness and innovation. Still, it could be a rosy men’s signature scent—not to mention a perfectly pleasant option for women or anyone else—so if it’s one of a handful of scents that one wears, it could be worthwhile.

Retail pricing is $275 for the standard 70ml bottle size in EDP concentration, sold at the French house site as well US boutiques and department stores. It performs reasonably well, but not outstandingly.

Overall, a nice scent worth smelling but not groundbreaking.

Manly rose
I came to MFK shop for the other fragrance, but I came home with L' Homme A la rose!!!

The shop assistance insisted me to give it a try. As an old school man, I didn't think the roses suitable for the man. But after the first sniff, I changed my mind.

It opens with the roses and fruity note. Yes, it's sweet. But it is not too sweet and absolutely no cloying sweetness in this juice. The amber wood gives this juice the masculine scents and calm down the sweetness.

This scent is quite linear. After first 5 minutes the scents doesn't change until it fades away. This scent is simple, easy to understand and very easy to wear. In my opinion the simplicity of this fragrance is the strong point. The longevity is the other strong point. I wear it at 7 am and it is still on cloths at 7 pm.

Someone told me that the rose in this juice is so synthetics. In my opinion, I can notice a little sense of synthetics only when I sniff very closed. I cannot detect the synthetics sense on the sillage around me.

This rose is MANLY ENOUGH for an old school man as I am. Easy to use and stick on your skin and cloths for day long. No major complaint at all.

Synthetics À la Rose
First of all, I must say that I am basically a fan of MFK fragrances. Although (unfortunately) only Grand Soir is in my possession so far, I have tested most of the fragrances of this manufacturer. Especially the naturalness and the longevity in combination with the creativity are very appealing to me.

Now for the fragrance:
With L'Homme À la Rose I personally (without knowing the scents beforehand) imagined a partly fresh as well as somewhat woody scent, which is accompanied by a beautiful soft rose.

The first time I sprayed the sample, I was immediately met by a gush of synthetics. After a short time I could partially perceive the lemon-like paired with some grapefruit. Then the rose also joined (clumsy and hard). That was it for about half an hour. I smelled my arm again and again and waited for the further course. After about an hour I only noticed pure synthetics, like those of a bad Dior Sauvage Dupes. More simply did not come.

Conclusion:
I'm really a MFK fan, but I can't (yet) do anything with the scent. Unfortunately really trivial compared to masterpieces like Grand Soir, Oud Satin Mood etc. Therefore I can't recommend it and hope that this release was just a slip, because in my opinion the price-performance ratio is not right here.
Cheers

MFK goes Designer
What a surprise when yesterday afternoon I found a strange envelope with the sender MFK from France. That's what I call a noble gesture, to make the more or less loyal customers happy with a free sample of the latest creation. Many a house could cut itself a slice there.

The very next morning the scent was applied. But what can I say, disappointment followed on foot. The fragrance starts right away with a strong presence that immediately reveals something pungent synthetic. The rose doesn't hesitate to clap me in the face, but strangely superficial without real depth. The idea itself of giving a rose a lightness of touch with citrusy-fruity chords is certainly not unoriginal. Usually it goes in the other direction with patchouli or oud. Especially from FK, who has created rose works of art like LNH or OSM, I would have expected an exciting realisation of this theme. But unfortunately, in my opinion, this lightness is turned into the opposite by exaggerated synthetics.

In the further course of time the rose fades away and the fruity aspects (grapefruit) gain more and more the upper hand. I also notice floral nuances here, as they are often found at FK.

After 3-4 hours at the latest, I have the feeling of having a designer fragrance from the lower price segment on my wrist. When I think about it, this annoying synthetic has already been intimated by Amyris Homme. In my opinion, the fragrance is just getting the hang of it there. But here it shows up bluntly.

Sorry, but that's not gonna work out between us

It is grossly wrong. Even worse than Amyris Homme.

If you are an old school man (as I am).
Try it !

You will be realized that the roses are not only for woman.

6-8 hours on my skin.
