In perfumery, we use rose absolute
For several centuries, we have been using the rose, queen of flowers, in perfumery. Above all, Centifolia roses and Damascena roses are exploited in the perfume industry. The main producing countries are France, Turkey, Bulgaria and Morocco.
After picking them, the rose petals are put in a tank to macerate with a solvent, most often ethanol. Then, the washing step make it possible to extract the odorous materials. As a result, we obtain a waxy, concentrated and extremely fragrant substance, the concrete. Be aware that 300 to 400 kilograms of flowers are necessary to create a kilogram of concrete that will give the absolute after a last wash with alcohol. The absolute, a thick liquid with a very concentrated fragrance, gives off a warm, waxy, honeyed and spicy scent.
For the production of the “Rose” perfume for women, the absolute is diluted in small quantities and according to the desired concentration in alcohol. That explains the difference between pure perfume, Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette and Eau de Cologne.
Our Eau de Toilette “Rose”
The all-floral top note exudes a feeling of springtime freshness. In addition, the elegance and discretion of the violet are combined with the intensity of the geranium and the warmth of the Ylang-ylang. These three flowers symbolize the soft and delicate femininity. It is in the heart note that our rose perfume, the eternal symbol of love, spreads. Our designer masters have added a slight jasmine scent for its sensuality, and cloves for its spicy sweetness to this fragrance. Clove is the fragrance of tenderness. And finally, the base note is comfortable and powerful with sandalwood and white musk.
The white rose symbolizes purity and the red rose passion…..it’s up to you to make your choice…
