Scent Story: Rose

Posted on March 28, 2016 by Angie Andriot

A common ingredient in love potions, the rose is an ancient symbol of love and beauty. It is sacred to Isis and Aphrodite, and is often used to symbolize the Virgin Mary.

In ancient Rome, roses were placed on the door to rooms where private matters were being discussed–hence when we tell someone a secret, we are doing it “sub rosa,” or “under the rose.”

Rose is a great addition to your perfume inventory!
