Search for the True Rose Oil

aa441b944b1f4d31bdd2a60a799816ccRose, the King of Flowers! Rose, the muse of Painters, Musicians, Poets, Dreamers… Rose, the ancient world’s best kept  Beauty secret!  Rose, by any name, fragrantly, flagrantly divine!

But only the true Rose has the right to be described so.
Leave aside the imitations- synthetic fragrances, nature-identical scents, derivatives from other flowers, even among real Roses,100s of varieties, blends, colors – there is still only one that touches my heart, a True Perfumery indulgence and a true Aromatherapy delight..

Rosa damascena! The damask rose, in all its softness, unshowy- ness a single species, grown in the thousands, for the spectacular fragrance in its heart, for the precious drop of oil in each Rose’s innermost being.

The only Rose, worth the labour.

Anecdote

My first contact with Rose Oil was as a novice natural perfumer, 10-12 years ago. A terribly expensive hobby which I, like other novices, would supplement by bartering or selling personal rare extracts, attars in order to buy the ever rarer, spiraling, fragrant goods. Natural Perfumery is a bug that will probably never completely leave. I despair.

We would sell 2 types of products: perfumery extracts in teeny, tiny quantities, and essential oils to Soapers in large quantities, sourced from India. At this time, a beautifully fragrant ‘Rose oil’ was made available which was offered on eBay, in large quantities (25ml- 100ml), as required by Soapers, with a regular returns-accepted policy. These would mostly ship directly from the Supplier, while the perfumery extracts were mine.

We were surprised to find it did rather well. Rose seemed to be just the thing for soaps.

What I did not expect was for this Rose Oil to be mistaken for the real deal, True Rose Oil is sold in drops, literally, certified, standardized, et al.
So it came as a mild shock when a respected Aromatherapist asked me about it. I mentioned our policies and that this wasn’t part of my extracts/decision anyhow.
Later, came a Perfumer-associate who sent an analysis of components!
I was too green to respond that common sense was the deciding factor and a Soaper quality (& price) Rose oil could not be compared with the original.

However, both these happenings did some good- provoking a desire for the True Rose Oil.

10-12 years ago, I was only familar with several Rose Absolutes for Perfumery, and spice oils in Aromatherapy, Rose Oil being the domain of Aromatherapists who worked with fine extracts and higher level benefits.

Put off by perfumers who, while working with fine extracts and eyeing them critically ( as required ) did the same to people, not differentiating humanity from matter.

It seemed to me that, unlike the subjective aspect of Perfumery, in Aromatherapy- questions raised about ingredients would be answered by Results. The creation of synergies requires  an open mind, to see the goodness in each thing and use it, compensating for that which is not good, too intense or too weak for use. An intuitive process, like breathing in Oxygen and letting the carbon go.

I went back to my First Love, making Aromatherapy + Ayurved based Healing Potions and Serums, and soon we started Holistic Serums.

The ongoing search for Rose Oil continued…
After losing a small fortune and a dozen-odd samples, I gave up on Indian Rose oil. I did find a fine centifolia, but it did not quench the thirst-you know?
Several years of looking through Moroccan Roses, Russian and other countries, came the Bulgarian Rose Oil. Life stopped.
When production of Bulgarian Rose oil diminished, we switched to The wonderful Turkish Rose Oil for our products.
