A Beauty of Roses

Call me old-fashioned but the classic, distinct scent of the rose is one of my favorites. The rose flower is also one of my all time favorites to receive. As well, Guns n' Roses is one of my favorite bands. OK, you get the point. Luckily, this scent is no longer reserved for Glam-Ma (no offense) and there are fresh, modern rose scented beauty products available today. Known for its tonic and deodorant properties, it also has skin soothing, and aroma therapeutic, i.e relaxing, benefits. Rose extract also aids in exfoliating. Here are some of my favorites:

Jaqua Rose in Bloom Body Beauty Butter, $24. Super rich for moisturizing winter skin, this wonderful garden rose beauty butter contains Rose Hip Extract, Cocoa Butter and Mango Butter.


Avon Floral Prints Sheer Rose Shower Gel, on sale for $4.99. There is nothing like being showered with roses.


Several more rosies, so

Stella McCartney Stella, $60.50 for 1.6 oz Eau de Parfum Spray. Stelllllaaaaaa! This fragrance is based on the contrast between the freshness and softness of the rose, and the dark sensuality of amber; Stella is a sophisticated scent focused on an intense sense of femininity.


Archipelago Botanicals 'Royals Collection' Short Candle: Rose, $42.
Could a candle be any more lovely?


Kiehl's Rosewater Facial Freshener-Toner, $14 for 18 fl. oz bottle. A gentle soothing freshener formulated with Rose Extract to be used after cleansing or any time as a mild astringent and facial stimulant for normal to oily skin types. I just adore the rose petals floating around in the bottle.


Smith's Rosebud Salve, $6. You know you love it.

I totally agree with you DR! Just the other day I was telling my boss that I like to smell roses, but I don't like rose scented stuff because it doesn't smell the same...

Yuck, I had rose scented anything. I think it's cause it reminds me of "Old Lady" perfume. Plus real roses don't smell like that.
