What is it About Roses?

“At every stage the rose’s fragrance varied offering something tempting and sublime. When the red buds were beginning to open, they smelled rich like wine. The delicate yellow roses teased me with their perfume. In the morning their outer petals hinted of mint and their centers smelled of vanilla cake. On a warm afternoon, their scent laced with ginger and honey tickled my nose, and in the cool of the evening, sweet sugar icing.” Essie’s Roses, Michelle Muriel

 

I can smell a rose just by saying its name. There’s something so special about a rose. Its history, romance, captivating perfume, and elegance. Throughout history it has been a symbol of love, passion, and highly prized for its fragrance and beauty. Did you know there is a difference between roses grown today and roses grown in the nineteenth century?
