Bulgarian Rose Absolute

Bulgarian Rose Absolute is produced from our Bulgarian rose concrete via ethanol extraction. The concrete comes from roses picked from our own fields of fresh Rosa Damascena flowers – so, like all of our products, it is 100% traceable from the soil it was grown in.

The chemical components of our Bulgarian Rose absolute are very similar to those found in our Bulgarian rose oil. Of particular importance are the phenylethyl alcohol (approximately 60%), citronellol, geraniol, nerol and eugenol.
