There are two types of roses that make rose scent so unique, damask roses and centifolia roses. Theirs is the oil that is extracted, either through steam or solvents, to create rose absolute, the ingredient that is essential to a lot of world perfumery. Roses are the queen of flowers, and they gift the fragrances that contain them with a floral, fresh, luminous character, with a delicate powdery nuance, and wooden or fruit notes, depending on the type.

It’s not just perfumery that uses the quality of roses to its advantage. It is also a note that characterizes a lot of cosmetics, using its health benefits as well as its fragrance. Roses have moisturizing, calming and regenerating properties, which makes them very suitable for use on stressed skin that needs a rejuvenating boost. Some brands even extract this in a high-tech manner, using stem cells that try to mimic the behaviour of the cells in your skin, helping cellular regeneration, and slowing down the aging process.
