too bad you don't like the rose flavor. I adore it, but understand since the other half cannot abide it and thinks of it as "perfume."

I like mistral's idea of trying a very tiny amount.

Another suggestion is to take a cue from the wonderful Alkermes liqueur which presents the rose and orange flower flavorings combined with a complex palate of tastes: citrus, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, star anise, vanilla, cardamom. Any combination of these ingredients would be faithful to the flavors of Turkish and Arabic cuisine.

A simpler flavor could be lemon/orange zest, cinnamon, and vanilla. They work extremely well together and a drop of rosewater in there might just be a mysterious background flavor that ties it all together without overpowering your objection to full strength rosewater.
