"The Queen of the Flowers"

Roses (Rosa) belong to the family of roses (Rosaceae), just like 250 other species. These beautiful, enchanting smelling bushes are widespread and very popular. They can grow 4m high. Roses have thorns and usually five petals, which can vary in shades from red to white and yellow color. The fruit of the rose - rose hip - ripen in late summer. The production of rose oil originated in Persia. This prescious essential oil is won from the rose blossoms, and one ton of petals only makes 300g rose oil. But rose oil is not the only prescious product of the rose; others include pleasent teas and jams, which are also won from the rose hips.

 
The name "Queen of the Flowers" derives from the Greek poet Sappho, who described the rose in one of his poems around 600 BC:
Would Jove appoint some flower to reign/In matchless beauty on the plain
The Rose (mankind will all agree)/The Rose the queen of flowers should be. (Sappho von Lesbos)
 
Empress Josephine, the wife of Napoleon I., fell in love with this flower and had several rose gardens planted. Since then the rose is a symbol of love and joy.

Character

The warm-soft, harmonic scent of the rose is the right smell für comfortable evenings at home, and makes a perfume sensual. The enchanting smell lives up to the rose as a symbol of love. 

Effect
