This monograph takes a deep dive into the world of rose fragrance – its history, mystery and chemistry – and attempts to both ‘fake it’ and ‘make it’ from essential oils, natural isolates and aroma chemicals, with a final focus on creating essential oil rose blends for cosmetic creators. Plus some great rose resources for further study.
