Pick Your Rose
First days of summer and it’s time to pick rose, one of the most precious and multifaceted perfume ingredients. A rose fragrance can be green, spicy, musky, metallic or woody. Creating a ‘rose’ rose is a challenge of its own and requires special skill and talent as the raw perfume material doesn’t smell like the freshly cut flower. French May centifolia rose smells quite different from Turkish rose damascena (such as the Isparta rose), Bulgarian or Moroccan rose.
