Mon amie la rose is a studio album of the French popular singer Françoise Hardy. Released in France in November 1964 on LP Disques Vogue (FH 2). Published without title, except for her name on the cover but this album has therefore colloquially become known by the title of its most successful song, "Mon amie la rose" ("My friend The Rose").

Hardy recorded an English version of "Dans le monde entier", titled "All Over the World". In 1965, this song reached the Charts in the United Kingdom, remaining there for 15 weeks (at the Top 50 of 25 Mars on 8 July 65 - at the Top 20 from April 29 till June 3[1]). In the Anglophone world, this may be Hardy's best-known song.[2]
