– the uplifter
A rose in bloom is a surefire way to put a smile on your face, so it’s little wonder this scent is known for its antidepressant properties and has been used to help uplift and unwind since the Roman era. A mild sedative that helps to balance the mind, rose is often used in stress remedies – soothing frayed nerves and restoring emotional stability. It also calms and soothes skin, reducing redness with its astringent effect while rejuvenating cells. Did we mention that this symbol of love and beauty also has powerful, yet gentle, antiseptic qualities? So remember, roses are red and they won’t leave you blue.
Our chosen rose product is Tom Ford’s Café Rose fragrance. “Flowers can have a dark enchantment,” says Tom Ford of his latest private blend collection that celebrates all things floral. “Their beauty can be so extreme that it has a narcotic effect on the senses and a decadence that feels almost illicit.” This intoxicating blend of feminine, floral notes, including Bulgarian rose and Turkish rose oil is spiked with spicy pepper and coffee to create a heady, rich, rosy scent.
