A fragrance made from persian damask rose
Persia (Iran) is said to be the origin of ancient roses. It is a country with a history and tradition that first developed "distillation technology" and produced rose essential oil (essence) and rose water. Situated slightly southwest of Iran's capital, Tehran, the Kashan region is well-suited for producing Damascus rose, which is ideal for producing rose spices. Forty days from late May, rose flowers are picked at the time of sunrise when the morning dew is dripping, and within that day, the essential oil of roses (essence) and rose water are made using the same distillation method as before. It is known as a very expensive and precious essential oil because it takes about 3,000 roses to extract 1mL of rose essential oil.
