Musk Rose Enfleurage is a solid perfume made by the simple but labor intensive process of cold enfleurage. The only ingredients are fresh, musk rose flowers grown in my organic garden, avocado butter, and very raw beeswax. It is organic and handmade. The scent is true to the Rosa moschata species: dry, saline, with a back note of ambrette seed musk. To my nose, its aroma is redolent of white wines from the Languedoc region, with a dry, tangy, and briny profile like sun-baked sand bearing the impression of dried sea foam. Rosa moschata's origins are unknown, but it probably grew wild in the western Himalayas during ancient times. It had been imported to western Europe by at least the end of the sixteenth century, as the musk rose is mentioned in A Midsummer Night's Dream. In my enfleurage, the Rosa moschata scent is salty, with a hint of ambrette.
