If rose notes make you think of granny, you’d better reconsider. Here’s why we – and the world’s top perfumers – are loving roses more than ever.
1 They’re precious
It takes 30 000 rose petals (which are picked in the early morning to preserve the scent) to make 30g of essential oil.
2 They highlight other notes
Perfumers often use rose in the backgrounds of their fragrances to emphasise some elements and soften others, like musk and moss.
3 They’re luxurious, but discreet
Brands use rose to scent everything, from powders to lipsticks and creams.
Below you’ll find five fragrances will have you coming up roses this season.
