DESCRIPTION


Rose Oil has been produced just south of the Balkan Mountains in Bulgaria for hundreds of years. Rose Oil’s great value is due in part to the fact that it takes approximately 3-4 tons of rose petals to make 1 kg of oil, all of which had to be picked by hand from between 1750 and 3500 roses. The Rose accord is central to so many fragrances that it is no surprise that its aroma transcended the shifts in style over the decades. This hasn’t stopped innovation within the profile however. In addition to the heavy powdery rose that we know and love the floral has been modernized to be more sheer, light, and watery.
Botanical Name

Rosa damascena


Aroma & Flavor

While all Rose can be said to be warm and floral, Bulgarian Rose differentiates itself on the drydown with a prominent, clove-like spiciness uncommon in other varieties. This character makes Rose Bulgarian particularly well suited for floral and spicy styles.
