Who loves fragrant roses? 🌹
Did you know that sadly the traditional smell of roses have been bred out of many rose varieties as the rose-market requires roses to last as long as possible for reasons including travelling long international distances.
People want flowers to be longer lasting, bigger heads, unusual colours, exotic shapes, and the list goes on. So in order to breed these desirable traits, the fragrance is often sacrificed.
Despite this, fragrant roses are what we often work with, especially in Paris. Customers love the natural colours, unforgettable perfumed roses that come in different exceptional tones such as sweet, citrus, honey, fruity, tea-like scents.
So next time you come across perfumed roses, stop, distinguish the difference, and appreciate their rare beauty. 🦢
