Damask rose: an age-old flower
The Damascus Rose is one of the oldest rose species. It embodies beauty with double flowers that range from pure white to luminous purple. Native to Syria, it is a delicate flower that has been cultivated for thousands of years. Indeed, already a thousand years before Christ, the Damask Rose was planted on the island of Samos, opposite Greece, in honour of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. Considered as a mystical flower, its tradition lasted until the Roman Empire with the cult of Venus. If it is nowadays found in the West, it is notably thanks to the Crusades which allowed it to become a cosmetic active ingredient in its own right. Because of the many conflicts in its country of origin, also affecting those who produce it, the Damascus Rose is now cultivated in Turkey, Morocco but also in Bulgaria.
It is harvested in an ancestral way: between May and June, the first flowers must be harvested at dawn to prevent the sun's rays and heat from blurring their strong scent. This is why the Damascus Rose is grown at high altitudes, where it draws its essential nutrients season after season. The harvested flowers are distilled less than 24 hours after picking in order to preserve all their virtues: those that are untreated and organically grown are the richest in antioxidants.
If its virtues are multiple, it is famous above all for its bewitching perfume, and for good reason, it is the variety of roses most used in perfumery and cosmetics! In perfumery, it is called Rosa Domascena it is transformed into essence and is appreciated for its powerful and fragrant smell. But for several years now, it is above all in essential oil and floral water that it has experienced a real renaissance.
