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.”
All our synthetic fragrance notes are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases. These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, with both natural and synthetic materials. And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.
Note: Although these are phthalate-free, they are NOT non-toxic. Don't eat them. Don't drink them. Patch test on skin. Dilute before wearing.
I have making perfume for 3 years and recently started making skincare..I have sampled too many rose fragrances to count. This is the only one that I will ever use. It smells like ... view morea rose, plain and simple. No mustiness, no dry funky dry down. It is stands alone and blends perfectly without overpowering the other notes. Whoever developed this rose is on point! Thank you!! view less
This is a lovely rose fragrance oil, but it brings to mind for me more of a flower shop smell than pure rose. There\'s not a thing wrong with that flower shop effect, it\'s very ni... view morece. It\'s reminiscent of walking into a flower shop, opening the rose cooler door and sticking your head inside. You get that rose note, but with the addition of everything else that comes with it in a flower shop setting. This is probably the nicest synthetic rose I\'ve smelled. It will have its uses, just the same as my fine rose absolutes have theirs. view less
Hands down one of my favorite rose fragrances. Picture a heavy, damp, on the verge of blooming perfect deep red hothouse rose. This is it. This isn\'t your grandma\'s rose, and not... view more for the timid. Definitely floral with the typical sultriness one expects from rose, but with a bright and almost grannysmith apple-like note that is somehow still not fruity. Blends well with fruits, florals, lighter woods... you name it. A must-have from Vetiver. view less
