The rose is the flower of the rose bush, a Rosa shrub of the Rosaceae family. Appreciated for its beauty and fragrance, it has become "the queen of flowers", present in almost every garden in the world.
Two botanical varieties amongst the hundreds of known species are used in perfumery: the Rose Centifolia (Rose de Mai or Rose de Provence) grown in Grasse or Morocco, and the Rose Damascena (Rose of Damascus) grown in Bulgaria and Turkey.
The Rose is said to have been created by Chloris, goddess of flowers in Greek mythology (Flora in Roman mythology), from the lifeless body of a nymph. Aphrodite, goddess of Love, gave it beauty; Dionysus, god of wine, gave it its intoxicating perfume, and the Three Graces gave it charm, radiance and joy. Finally, Zephyr chased away the clouds to allow Apollo to send his rays to make her blossom.
The rose was born and immediately became the queen of flowers. Few civilizations or religions could resist its charm.
The flower of all excesses in Antiquity, it was recovered in the 4th century by the Church, which associated it with the cult of the Virgin Mary thus giving it an irreproachable reputation.
But it is the Arabs to whom we owe the propagation of the perfume rose. They are said to have introduced it in the Dades Valley in Morocco, in Bulgaria and in Turkey.
