Daily Inspiration: Roses

I know everyone knows what roses are.But do u knowthat black roses are only available in Turkey like the pic below?

It's also a perfume note(floral) too!

Roses—one of the most beautiful and praised flowers, have been valued for centuries in many cultures, and have been cultivated and hybridized worldwide. Rose plants range in size from compact, miniature roses, to climbers that can reach 7 meters in height. Species from different parts of the world easily hybridize, which has given rise to the many types of garden roses.

The name rose comes from French, itself from Latin rosa, which was borrowed from Greek and old Persian from the beginning.

Rose absolute is the steam-extracted (or solvent-extracted) essential oil from rose flowers (mostly from Rosa damascene and Rosa centifolia) that has been used in perfumes and skin care for centuries. Rose water, made from the rose oil, is widely used in Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine.
The French are known for their rose syrup, most commonly made from an extract of rose petals. Also tea made of rose petals is extremely delicious! I brew it for 5-10 minutes and drink in the morning without anything.
Rose hips (from Rosa canina) in country kitchens are traditionally used to make wine, vinegar, jams, syrup, and tea. They are also pressed and filtered to make rosehip syrup which is used as a nutritional supplement. Rose hips are also used to produce rosehip seed oil, which is used in skin products and some medicinal purpose. I drop the oil in my baby’s stuffed nose.

If u r a rose lover,u will definitely love Avril Lavigne's two fragrances!
The firstbone is called Wild Rose,the other is called Forbidden Rose.
But surprisingly, there is no rose note in the liquid! So,I am going to do a review on one of em'.I'm gonna let u guys guess and comment below :)

So,Wild Rose's top notes are Mandarin,Plum and Lemon.While the heart has African Orange Flower,Frangpani and Orchid.Followed by the base notes,they are musk,sandalwood and sweet notes.

Next is Forbidden Rose!It's top notes are peach,apple and pepper.Heart notes are Heliotrope, Lotus and Granny Smith Apple.On to the base notes are Sandalwood,vanille and Mexican chocolate.

And they are rose-inspired bottles!How pretty and cool they are!Wild rose is more like a rose trapped inside of a vase,while Forbidden Rose looks like it's just stuck in a vase.Both have similar bottles and accessory(free ring).

Roses are eatable too.Depends on the type.Most are being dried to make rose tea,some pick them to make consumable flower ice cubes and some chefs dipped them into nitrogen to make it froze and used to decorate the dishes especially deserts.

What's ur impression for Roses?
