-Rose Absolute Oil-
For thousands of years, Roses have had an unparalleled association with love, beauty, indulgence, celebration, and spiritual worship. The privileged status of Roses in society has given rise to its well-deserved moniker as the "Queen of Flowers". The origin of the Rosa damascena remains somewhat of a mystery; some historians believe it lies in Damascus, Syria's capital and the oldest city is known as the "Pearl of the East". Others, however, believe its botanical roots lie in historic Persia (now Iran). In the 1600s, a merchant from Turkey is thought to have brought the wide-scale cultivation of Rosa damascena to Bulgaria.
Up until the First World War, Bulgaria held an undisputed position as the most reputed and prolific producer of Rose Oil. Today, the region has been named as the "Rose Valley". It is believed that the highly complex, layered aroma and quality of Bulgaria's Rose Absolute can be attributed to the unique soil and near-perfect climatic conditions of the country.
