Apothecary Rose Parfum Creme
An ode to Rosa Gallica — the apothecary rose. This latest addition to the Parfum Crème line melts into the skin like butter, imbuing flesh with the heavenly scent of heirloom roses and verdant freshly cut stems bolstered by the aroma of sweet tarragon, jammy apricot, and warm, resinous, and earthy myrrh.
Why we're addicted: This sophisticated fragrance features a dewy floral top note with a fresh green opening, followed by a jammy note with herbaceous nuances.
Though the exact timeline of rose gallica's history is shrouded in a fragrant veil of mystery, it's told to have first bloomed in antiquity. Born to Persia (Iran), it was prized not only for its enticing aroma and grace but for culinary and medicinal uses as well. As the centuries passed, the bloom migrated from Southwestern Asia to Europe where, by the Middle Ages, it became the first cultivated rose found in the cloistered gardens of medieval monasteries.
At the turn of the 19th century, French druggists used it as a symbol of their pharmaceutical pursuits, flanking the entrance of their apothecaries with it — giving Rosa Gallica the common name of 'The Apothecary's Rose'. Fast-forward to the 21st century, this heirloom rose is still cherished for its beauty as well as its longstanding historical legacy and the ongoing use of its culinary, olfactory, and medicinal virtues.
