Rose is the queen of flowers and the symbol of love, beauty and grace. According to acient myth, Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, created the flower from her tears and the blood of her lover Adonis.

Rosa damascena or Damask rose is a hybrid rose, probably originated in Damascus, Syria and later introduced to Europe. The flowers are famous for their sophisticated fragrance and are commercially cultivated for rose oil (called rose otto) and rose water that are widely used in perfume and skin care industry. The flower petals are edible and are consumed as food flavouring, herbal tea or made in marmalade. Damask roses are cultivated in Bulgaria (renowned “Valley of Roses”), Turkey, France, Italy, Morocco and India.
