Default whats with the rose hate?

ok so i went by the local shop near me that sells some shisha, they were a bit low (they get a large order in then let it run down a lot) but the only thing that appealed at all was nakhla rose (well i also thought about the af arks sous or what ever its called but passed).

ya i get its one of those kinda acquired tastes but i dont get the "ewwwww soap" every one swears about. ya its not something im going to smoke daily but its sure not going to fall to the bottom of the stash, probably use it as a mixer too. i think part of some of the like/hate people have with flavors is what they are eating/drink with it and how full they are when smoking. i know personally i am going to start putting this in my reviews (or at least try to) and hope others do as well cause i think it does have some effect

i think you're right when you say it's for those with an acquired taste, i've tried it a few times and i just don't like the taste of it, i didn't find it soapy or anything, the taste and smell matched the taste and smell of rose water, it was just the actual flavour that wasn't to my liking.

i would however give it another go as a mixer if anyone had any good suggestions for it, but i wouldn't smoke rose by itself

we used to get jasmine rose as a mix at the local hookah bars and it was nice... then again they never cleaned their rigs so everything tasted the same

i used to hate rose, but ended up loving it in the end, its a great taste.

as for jasmine, there are few acurate jasmine flavors out there. most are either green tea or slightly different than rose. if you ever have smelled pink jasmine before, then you understand why this is such a letdown, that indian jasmine and confederate jasmine doesnt really smell anywhere near as nice.

Eh, a lot of people just aren't into Earthy and floral flavors. I personally find them soothing. My rule of thumb towards these flavors is generally this....If you don't like drinking a lot of simple teas you shouldn't bother with floral and herb flavors.
But if you do........may I suggest adding Lavender to your vase when smoking rose. Cheap from your local spice isle for those of you who aren't sure where to obtain it.

Mint / Rose is a nice combination.

I had some Layalina Rose once off of just curiosity (I was young, with a Mya bambino 2 hose. the base was bambino, but the stem was different. My shop is a bunch of dicks, they coddle stuff together from hookahs.), and it was alright. It ghosts my pink Mya hose right now, so I use it only for florals. Jasmine is something I haven't experienced yet.

can't say i like rose, actually, i'm a hater, sorry, but it's true.
jasmine on the other hand, and i've only tried af, is really pleasant. but just once in awhile, not an everyday smoker.

One time, my girlfriend put on some Burt's Bees Honey lip balm. It smells like roses. I had to go home with a Migraine and sleep for almost a day.

That's how much i hate the smell of roses, it literally sickens me to the point of passing out.

Jasmine green tea, though, is my second favorite type of green tea.

Desi Murli Pan Rasna has some rose in it and it's quite good. I had HH Rose and liked it a lot too.

I agree with most on it's an aquired taste. Personally I enjoy the flavor, it's refreshing and soothing. I used to hate it until I smoked afzal bombay and the flavor stuck to me. If you don't enjoy rose I'd try al waha winter flower. Almost like a vanilla rose mix, almost a candied rose.

I love rose, I like Al Waha roses mixed with any fruit flavor, Love it.I have acquired the taste, on the other hand Jasmine, natural or in my shisha makes me very sick with a migraine. I think I'm allergic to Jasmine, I have the same problems with Tiger Lillie's, but somehow I don't think I will be smoking that flavor at all.I heard that people that live in countries where they use rosewater and orange blossom water in food, have the same reaction to vanilla flavor as we Westerners have with rosewater, we all think it smells and taste perfumey.Roses or rosewater, I love to smell and eat, I was thinking of making some organic rose petal jam, hmm...Me and my experiments.
