Botanical Name: Rosa damascene

Plant Part: Flowers

Extraction Method: Solvent Extraction

Origin: Bulgaria

Description: The rose is one of the worlds best known flowers - stunning and exotic in both visual appearance and aroma.

Color: Golden to amber resin to solid.

Common Uses: Rose Bulgarian Absolute is a very common oil in the perfume and aromatic industries. Aromatherapists use it to create a sense of harmony, and it is used as an emollient in skin-care products.

Consistency: Viscous

Note: Middle

Strength of Aroma: Strong

Blends well with: Rose (Bulgaria) Absolute generally blends well with all oils, though it works particularly well with Bergamot, Chamomile German, Chamomile Roman, Clary Sage, Geranium, Melissa, Rosewood, Sandalwood, and Ylang-ylang.

Aromatic Scent: Rose (Bulgaria) Absolute has a very complex, sweet floral scent. Its reputation of being a must ingredient in perfumes is well deserved.

History: Bulgaria has over a 300 year tradition in essential rose oil distillation. Approximately 4000 kilograms of petals are required to produce 1 kilogram of pure rose oil. Its exotic nature and value were appreciated in ancient times by the Greeks, Chinese, Indians, Persians and Romans.

Cautions: It is important to note that all absolutes are extremely concentrated by nature. They should not be evaluated in this state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted fragrance. For those trying Absolutes for the first time, we strongly recommend they be evaluated in dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance - particularly the rare and exotic notes - becomes lost.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Thank you NDA for existing, my first order contained this gem of an absolute! It was my first time purchasing an absolute, and paired it with Jasmine Sambac to crown a king and queen of my collection. What a lovely pure rose scent, as many others have said, evaluate it out of the bottle in a blend of some sort. I made a 10% blend in jojoba. I did not have any difficulty getting the absolute to pour from the dropper, even during the tail end of Canadian winter. I am experimenting carefully with this precious queen!

I love almost any rose absolute, and this one was nice, although it was all lost before I could use even half of the bottle. New Directions, PLEASE spend a little more on the plastic caps on your essential oils so that they don't crack (even if you have to charge the customer a little more). With the cost of some of essential oils, it is an immensely expensive loss when the contents are gone due to cracks in the caps. Thanks.

Don't know what happened to the price of this oil, it became too expensive and it's not worth it. Very weak, within 6 months evaporated from all my lip balms, disappointing.

Very lovely absolute at a very reasonable price. Soft and deep, the very essence of the queen of flowers. I made a dilution which I apply to my wrists when I go to bed. I drift off into sleep so serenely!

WOW! I'm not really a rose lover, but this absolute changed my mind. I oringinally ordered it as a special order for a client, and was hooked after the first sniff. This is the essence of rose, with layers upon layers of scent to explore. This is how I always thought roses should smell like, and never did. It works well in perfumes, and equally well in facial treatments. A little goes a very long way!

Oh my goodness, where do I begin? Is it the incredibly uplifting scent that is pure heaven, the color that is so rich and luxurious or the incredible skin benefits it provides? All I can say is I'm hooked. I used to buy rose oil from another source in dilution but NOTHING beats the absolute. I use it in my anti aging night cream and also include it in a "special batch" of body lotion for me :) My skin has never felt silkier or smelled more fragrant. Although the absolutes are more pricey in general, in comparison to other sellers, the price is quite reasonable. Pure Luxury!!
