Etro - ManRose
At last, a rose for a man! Made with the truly cosmopolitan, erudite gentleman in mind - one who does not mind flouting convention - Man Rose is an exceptionally vigorous and sturdy rose composition that will never come across as less than purely masculine.
Like the individual petals of a rose, the individual notes of the fragrance blend together to form a magical and harmonious whole. The prelude is a fine misting of aromatic Calabrian bergamot, which introduces bit by bit a resinous, lemony and creamy elemi resin that casts a white hot ember in the grate. Piquant and boozy Szechuan pepper adds a hot spice note that shakes the composition up even further, and is further emphasized by the green, spicy cardamom.
At the heart of the fragrance, a fulsome Turkish Rose explodes with heat, sharpened by a lavish, smoky incense and minty, fresh geranium. The finale sets off fireworks of musk, amber and patchouli, which combine with the straightforwardly masculine notes of vetiver and noble woods to form the sturdy, leathery basenotes upon which the rose, spices, and incense rest.
