Think rose fragrances aren't for you? These 8 fresh scents will change your mind

What do rose scents bring to mind? For us, it's one of three things: sugar-dusted cubes of Turkish delight, classic face powder (complete with fabulously opulent compact) dredged up from a vintage handbag or potpourri. All have their place, but none are our ideal basis for an everyday summer perfume. Once dismissed as a granny-ish, this unsung note is making its way back into the fragrance world's hearts with an array of elevated scents. 

The key to modernising the classic floral ingredient lies in what surrounds it and, for summer, it's fruity aromas that perfumers are calling upon – whether that's a squeeze of lemon to add a zingy hit or a subtle hint of peppy rhubarb for sharpness. And it's not just perfume that has embraced the scent – candles, home fragrances and body lotions have had a rosy upgrade. Whether you're a fan who wants to try something non-traditional or if you typically steer clear of florals and feel like dipping your toe in, here's our pick of the best.
