The use of solvents yields a deeper, richer rose aroma, making the absolute far better for perfumery, and perhaps for emotional uses. However, for skin care, for internal uses, and for physical effects the pure steam-distilled Bulgarian Rose Otto is the wiser choice. Both are well worth experiencing! One luxury-loving client recommends blending the two for the ultimate sensory experience.
Of all of our various Rose Absolutes, this Rosa damascena has the deepest notes, perhaps a blend of sunshine and shadow. I would call it a deep heart note, compared to the high heart notes of the sunnier centifolia extractions.
The absolute is a deep orange in color, and needs diluting to be truly appreciated. Also available pure and undiluted.

true and full aroma
I’ve been using pure Rose Oil for decades, and they are always lovely. But THIS ONE, is probably the most beautiful and heavenly scented Rose I’ve ever smelled. I just adore it completely! Thank you Nature’s Gift!
Wonderful and rosey without being overpowering. A great affordable alternative to rose absolute.
