Rose Damascene

In the lush foothills of the Himalayas, Ankur and his family grow and distil the exquisitely fragranced Rose Damascene as his ancestors have for generations.

The petals are picked at dawn to harness optimum vitality then promptly distilled in copper vats, using water drawn by solar energy and heated by burning cow dung. To complete the natural, centuries-old cycle, Ankur feeds the spent petals to his cows. The end result is a distillate of Rose Otto with a depth, richness of scent and purity of vibration that exceeds any we have encountered anywhere else in the world.
