– 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.
