Default Rose - love it or hate it

As per SamB's suggestion (I really didn't mean to hijack a thread), here's a dissuccion on Rose flavored Shisha.

What brands have you tried - did you like it, hate, what?


-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Most rose brands I have tried have been too overpowering in taste - they tasted like cheap floral incense or popuri - or kinda tasted like soap (as well as left as soapish coating in one's mouth).

BUT... Al Fakher Rose is nice. Light enough to smoke alone, decent and not too strong in taste. Not soapishness and/or coating of the mouth. Mixes real well w/ mint.

I life Al Fakher does have a good roze too. ALthough it seems like it is either a flavor you love or hate because of its unique tastse.

I tried Romman rose, and i absolutely love it. iT had a fruity pebbles taste, with a strong rose flavor. Sooo good. And your room smells like an old lady for a while too.

al waha rose is too soapy, but havana was pretty good, not overpowering at all, it was about the potency of a real rose

I love rose flavours xD but the only i smoke alone is AF Rose. Other roses are just overpowering and beyond the sweetness my stomach can take. I like using AW rose in mixes and i love smoking AF rose on its own.
Note: always smoke rose with naturals cz even with tasteless QL coal it can taste weird , i dont know why.

if you find a "good" brand, it's ok - strange taste. If you managed to smoke Nakhla Pistachio then you'f have no problem smoking it "to sample". I wish I had more to send out samples, but I got 15g left - LOL, the gurl I bought it for wanted it and was pissed I traded some off! But it's all good.... got her hookahed on other flavors now.

I tried AF rose and it was gross. I smoked for maybe 10 minutes and had to kill it. It made my house smell like I spilled beer everywhere.

I still dig romman rose. But only 50 grams of it spread out over a while. It can get a bit too sickening. It's not soapy, it's just Rosey. If you want a good rose, try it out. (I tried AF rose a couple nights ago, it made me wanna die).

i tried romman rose once... *shutter* couldn't take it.

Af rose is the only rose I seem to tolerate at all.... and that's still barely. It's much better mixed w/ mint.

I think rose is a specitily flavor - they make becasue SOMEONE out there likes it - my friend does, but I'm weaning her OFF that flavor.

HAHA that's a good point. I dunno why i liked romman rose. Thats was 2 years ago almost though. :P
It smelled like Fruity Pepples at first. Flowers arent to great to eat, so i dont think they would be too good to smoke.

I never tried Rose, but the one I did smell literally smelt of roses from my back yard. It was actually really nice.

The only Rose type I tried was Soex Rooh Afza Cool. It was terrible. Stopped 4 puffs into it and threw the bowl and the rest of the box away!

I bought some rose shisha a looong time ago and for a while I liked it. It has been sitting in my tobacco trunk for probably around two years. I have had so many better flavors that I havent even thought about smoking it.

I know what you mean by the soapy taste.
