ORGANIC ROSE WATER
ORGANIC ROSE WATER FROM BULGARIA
In the heart of Bulgaria’s Rose Valley, these flowers are biodynamically grown and meticulously hand-picked.
The Damask rose
Originally from Syria, has been grown since ancient times. This flower is said to have been brought to Europe during the Crusades. Since then, its cultivation spread through the continent, first in Turkey, then in Bulgaria, where the expertise in growing flowers and climate are ideal. Its exceptional fragrance makes it an emblematic flower in the perfume, aromatherapy and gastronomy sectors.
In the heart of Bulgaria’s Rose Valley, these precious blooms are grown biodynamically. Hand-picked in the early morning, the fresh flowers are distilled less than 20 km from the fields.
The careful selection of flowers, good growing practices and rigorous distillation process enable Norohy to certify the essence content of this rose water at the time of bottling.
Focus on distillation
This extraction process transfers the delicate aromas of fresh flowers to floral water. During the distillation process, rose petals are mixed with water and brought to a boil. The aromatic molecules evaporate and rise into the distillation column, where they cool and condense, returning to the liquid state to be collected. The rigorous selection of flowers, good cultivation practices and the rigor of the distillation process allow NOROHY to certify the essence content of this rose water in bottling.
