bulgarian rose oil production

Imagine the way all of those roses smell when the bags have been opened. The sweet honey smell must be so utterly overwhelming!

Bulgarian rose is one of the main ingredients in MAINE. We use an absolute - a thicker, more concentrated version in which the oil gives it a waxy texture. There are some lemon-y top notes to the Bulgarian rose and I prefer this rose to others because of the powdery finish and soft trail it leaves.
