Come 8 PM EST tonight, The Bachelor’s Chris Soules will hand out the final rose to one lucky lady, but these rosy fragrances will tide us over 'til next season. The flower is as multifaceted as a Neil Lane diamond, so you're sure to find the sparkling blend that's just right for you. These modern upgrades aren't your grandma's rose---the five scents run the gamut from musky to vibrant, and will make spring feel that much closer with a unique twist on the classic floral.
Elegant: Acqua di Parma Rosa Nobile eau de parfum ($183; nordstrom.com).Roses hit their "scentual" peak in summer, exactly when Italian centifolias are picked to pack this soft, powdery perfume.
