Rose Damask Absolute (Ukraine)
The rose is one of the worlds best known flowers - stunning and exotic in both visual appearance and aroma.
Rose Damask Absolute is a very common oil in the perfume and aromatic industry. Aromatherapists also credit it with being an exotic aphrodisiac, an emollient in skin care products, and a balancer of the spirit.

Cautions: Rose Damask Absolute is non-sensitizing, non-toxic and non-irritating. 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.
