    My wife slept on the couch because I sprayed on too much Bois de Iles yesterday evening.

    Really?! That's surprising - normally I find it feminine and unassuming.

    Today: CDG2Man. I seldom wear this and I know why, but it's dry enough to handle summer.

    @HORNS: Wow, it seems like Bois des Iles should be impossible to hate. Also, I've got some Chanel No. 18 on the way. I'm looking forward to trying it.

    Pre-shower: Tauer Maroc pour Elle. I appreciate Tauer's scents a lot, but I've never understood the appeal of this one. I still don't.
    SOTD: Lorenzo Villoresi Musk.

    Going to be a "no" for me after a few wearings. The grapefruity note at the beginning is pungent, and then the earthiness afterwards dissipates too quickly to be worth it.

    I don't remember what you were exactly looking for, but I found Hermèssence - Rose Ikebana to be realitvely close to the skin (but then again most are, at least to my nose...). And really good for summer. I'd suggest trying/sampling a couple. Either go to a store and get samples there (apparently that's easy in the US) or order from Surrender to Chance or The Perfumed Court.

    Today Le Labo - Santal 33. No fan. Patchouli blast.
    And Amouage - Salalah Green. Very nice. Drydown was very Hermès-y today, something like an oriental mix of Osmanthe Yunnan and Voyage d'H.

    b1os is right: Rose Ikebana sounds like a very good match. It's definitely not too feminine, it sits close to the skin, and it's not powdery.
    Another one to try is Prada Infusion de Rose. I just tried this for the first time quite recently, but I think it also meets your criteria very well.
    Rossy de Palma by Etat Libre d'Orange is also worth a try, though it might be harder for you to find in a store.
    I imagine a lot of people would say Le Labo Rose 31. It's very popular among perfumistas. I have to say that I find it much more of a peppery and woody scent than a rose scent, but it's definitely quite masculine. It also has a bit more projection than the others I recommended.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, I forgot one of my favorites: Diptyque Eau Rose.
    Also agree completely with Thomas below about Dark Rose.

    Rose and me don't get along so well. Good luck, though.

    Actually, the closest I come to rose is Chanel Egoiste. That's about it.

    Hang on a moment, hit up Czech & Speake for their sample set, gratis (iirc). They do three rose scents: No. 88, Rose, and Dark Rose. Dark Rose is, IMHO, the best of the lot.
