A rose for men destined to be stolen by women, Rose 31 takes the most feminine of all notes, darkens, dries and spicies it up turning it into a veritable emblem of masculinity. Mesmerizingly ambiguous, the fragrance alternates between the floral and the spicy with a generous dose of the woody and the animalic thrown in for good measure. The striking, elegantly austere beginning of Rose 31 gives way to the sweet, spicy star note of rose accompanied by fiery spices, pepper, clove and nutmeg. The naughty hint of cumin in the heart of the scent is a prologue to the sensual base of oud and vetiver. Dark, dangerous and sublimely refined, this is one of our favorite Rose perfumes of all time.
