Rose Absolute Super Premium (BULGARIA)

Bulgaria is the classical land of rose oil production and has been for the past 350 years. Home to the world famous ‘Valley of the Roses’ – this is an area between the Balkan Mountain and Sredna Gora Mountain near the town of Kazanlik in central Bulgaria, total heaven for lovers of roses.

Adam Michael has this to say ” A rose story I absolutely love is about the ancient Hindu legend, the supposed creator of the world ‘Brahma’. Now Brahma and Vishnu (the protector of the world) argued over whether the lotus was more beautiful than the rose. Vishnu backed the rose, while Brahma supported the lotus. But Brahma had never seen a rose before and when he did he immediately recanted. As a reward Brahma created a bride for Vishnu and called her Lakshmi – she was created from 108 large and 1008 small rose petals.”

Joseph Colbourne has this to say “Not often do I come across a solvent-extracted rose absolute so vibrant, rich, and succulent as this aureate beauty from Bulgaria. It is almost as if the headspace of a lush pink damask rose has been captured; wafts of lambent spice, honey, and verdant elegance dries down to soft, dewy petals after a summer’s rain. So true to life is this absolute that it deserves a leading role in blends, showcasing it’s round, voluptuous sweetness and grandeur. With superior tenacity (16+ hours) on the testing strip, this absolute could very well serve as a cornerstone to oriental chypres, soft florals, dry woods—just about any type of blend can be complemented by this radiant treasure.”
