Rose perfume: a fragrance that's thousands of years old
A fragrance that has been popular since ancient times
The first rose scents appear more than 60 million years ago, in the Bering Strait. They were first used as perfumes around 2,000 years ago by Berber tribes. The rose was then used by the ancient Greeks and Romans, who saw in this flower the memory of Aphrodite mourning the death of her lover Adonis.
Other varieties of roses were imported from the Levant by the Crusaders in the Middle Ages. Europe discovered the scent of new buds and the oriental fragrances of the Middle Eastern rose quickly found their way into the skincare products of Western women.
The golden age of a flowery fragrance
The rose came to prominence in the 1990s. According to many noses, i.e. perfume designers, it is a delicate and versatile product that offers infinite olfactory possibilities.
Is rose eau de toilette an old-fashioned fragrance?
Since the 2000s, rose has been abandoned in favour of oud, amber and patchouli. Although some find it old-fashioned, the queen of gardens is still widely acclaimed as a symbol of romance, Parisian womanhood and French elegance.
What perfume really smells like roses?
There are over 3,000 varieties of roses with unique scents. Depending on the roses selected, the fragrances have a vegetal look, a floral tone or a waxy, spicy scent.
Some roses even offer original scents of musk, tea and myrrh, such as Rosa Moschata, Rosa Gigantae and Rosa Arventis.
Centifolia, Damascena: the emblematic roses of perfumery
Among the 3,000 existing varieties of roses, Rosa Centifolia and Rosa Damascena stand out for their rich aromas.
Rosa Centifolia: a jewel of Grasse with powerful fragrances
The Rosa Centifolia, nicknamed the "hundred-leaf rose", is the jewel of the city of Grasse, the world capital of perfume. Also grown in North Africa, it is known for its powerful and spicy aromas. This jewel of Grasse is used to produce rose oil, a distillate found in many beauty products.
The Rosa Damascena : an oriental treasure with fruity scents
The Rosa Damascena is named after the Syrian city of Damascus, where it originated. Used to make rose absolute and rose water, it is now grown in Bulgaria and Turkey. This queen of the Orient offers us her light, almost fruity notes, which blend perfectly with vanilla and bergamot.
How is rose eau de parfum made?
The careful harvesting of a delicate petal
The petals and stamens of rose bushes give off the characteristic scent of the queen of gardens. Roses are picked at dawn, when the morning dew gently beads on the petal. The flowers are picked by hand, with a precise gesture that preserves them, and are then sent directly to the extraction process. The perfume is then obtained by distillation or by extraction with volatile solvents.
Rose water, floral absolute, essence: the different uses of a versatile flower
The rose is a versatile product from which perfumers draw different distillates. For example, the rose can be used as :
- Essence, used as a top note for its powerful smell;
- Water, used as a facial;
- Absolute, with warm aromas, perfect for base notes.
The floral scent of the rose is also the subject of a synthetic reconstitution that recreates its scent while preserving biodiversity.
The bewitching marriage of the rose and other fragrances
While roses can be worn alone, they can also be accompanied by other fragrances. In perfumery, the rose is often associated with:
- Flowers: jasmine, orange blossom, white lotus or honeysuckle;
- Spices: vanilla, tea, myrrh;
- Woody and powerful fragrances: oud wood, cedar, patchouli.
Perfumers use rose as a top note as well as a base note and it brings freshness and lightness to the most popular perfumes.
