HoM Kazimi - a bitter, wild ambergris-rose that runs deep green on my skin.
Malle Portrait of a Lady - rose smashed into place by camphor, a roar of incense, smoke, patchouli, and a woody-aftershavey Ambroxan drydown that lasts forever.
MFK Lumiere Noire - a orangey, rosy musk with a discreetly silky texture and green, fresh accents.
Histoires de Parfums 1876 - a dry rose musk with heaps of herbs, aromatics, and dry-as-a-bone woods, very Victorian male grooming atmosphere
Eau d'Italie Paestum Rose - light rose and blackcurrant over dry cedar and incense. Very transparent yet somehow dark and Gothic in feel.
By Killian Rose Oud - delicate saffron-oud-rose that reads as firmly unisex to my nose.
Amouage Opus X - varnishy, bloody rose-geranium-rose oxide, biting and metallic
ELDO Eau de Protection - similar to the above, but came first.
