rose is nice to mix it with other flavors, but only rose tobacco is disgusting ..

it is a mixer in my book.. never a standalone smoke. Same goes for jasmine. mixed in small parts with berries they bring on a complex taste like wine.

That just sounds unfortunate. I know I'm not ready to play around with florals yet. This reinforces it.

Not only that, smoke it enough at home and you'd be living at Melrose Place.

I liked Rose with mint. It was good. I didn't like Rose alone though.

Wow. I never figured that there were so many rose haters here. As a hookah tobacco flavor it's one of my favorites. Some companies just do it terribly and you end up with a mouth of soap. AF is good. Their Golden Rose is wonderful. A sweet rose with notes of lemon in the background.

It is true that it's not for everyone but I find rose to be a good flavor component in my cooking and brewing.

Take warning though, it will stick in your rig for a while. I do not suggest smoking it without a washable hose or a rig you devote to florals and the like. I don't worry that much and just smoke until the residuals fade but I am careful to smoke flavors that blend with rose well for at least two bowls after smoking it straight.

That's brilliant.
But like the guys said, rose and I think Mint are both mixer flavors, They taste like crap standalone if you ask me.
I like to mix rose with double apple..
and mint with either chocolate or cappaccino!
Mixers for sure though!

Are you kidding me? There are some mint tobaccos that are too bitey on the throat but most are awesome.

Nakhla mint with crushed altoids in the base will punch you in the face. But you keep coming back. Nakhla only hits you cause he cares.

Nakhlas alright, they are on the top of their game with Fahk fruits. nothing else really amazed me though, it was either alright or was horrid. (El Basha grape = worst flavor ever)

El Basha Rose is really good stuff if you hit it up with some glycerine and honey. I usually mix it in with Salloum plain or HH Vanilla. For the most part I don't like rose by itself and outside of El Basha I can't say any of it anything but O.K. or worse.
