The Rose, flower of eternal femininity

The Rose, flower of eternal femininity

Omnipresent in perfumery, the queen of flowers offers the best of herself in May. Generous, carnal and sensual, this "royal" rose captivates us as soon as its disturbing and airy trail unfolds. What are its secrets?

It is in Grasse, the capital of world perfumery, that the Centifolia rose, nicknamed May rose because of the month in which it is harvested, is patiently cultivated alongside the other exceptional flowers of the Pays de Grasse: jasmine, tuberose, rose geranium and iris pallida. Pampered and then harvested by hand according to ancestral techniques, these fleshy roses characterized by the abundance of their petals are then distilled according to specific processes in order to extract the precious rose absolute. Characterized by its generous bright pink petals,  that blooms in the month of May, the Centifolia rose offers a powerful honeyed fragrance that is immediately engraved  in our memory. This is why it has been acclaimed by the greatest perfumers since the 16th century.
