Bed of Roses Organic Natural Perfume
A bed of a thousand roses blooms in this voluptuous bouquet. The perfumer started with a selection of nine rare rose materials that included Rose de Mai from Grasse, France; ruh gulab from the Himalayas; and Damask Rose Otto from the Valley of the Roses in Bulgaria. She also located Persian and Moroccan roses, Rose Edward, Rose of Bouboniana, rare Musk rose phytol, and an exquisite Rose Alba extraction from Bulgaria. She hand-blended these luscious and distinct rose scents to form an accord—a harmonious and opulent new rose scent.
The perfumer cushioned her sumptuous rose accord with rich, aged Tamil Nadu sandalwood, dark chocolate and rich cognac, and included accents of tuberose, Boronia, orange blossom and green mandarin. She crowned Bed of Roses with a canopy of precious rose leaf absolute, a rare and incomparable material from the history of perfume, seldom made today.
Bed of Roses is a unique treasure, and the perfumer has very few bottles of this first limited edition in stock. An exquisite collector’s gift, this extrait de parfum is packaged in a Verrieres Brosse crystal bottle and tucked into a dupioni silk pouch. The finishing touch is a Victorian scent card that captures the spirit of a time when even the advertisements were little works of art.
Extrait de parfums are made in small, hand-crafted batches and include a vintage number.
Notes: Rose accord, rose leaf, ylang ylang concrete, dark chocolate, cognac, tuberose, Boronia, orange blossom, green mandarin, sandalwood.
*All of the sandalwood that I use was purchased nearly 20 years ago. I have not purchased any more since then as these species have become threatened, and in some cases endangered, because of overharvesting according to Red List Project.
Laurie’s Feeling Notes: With so many rose varieties in the accord, this perfume is deeply restful. I inhale deeply for an inner world of serenity.

Bed of Roses is more than a perfume – it is a work of art you will treasure.
Review~ Rockstar Rose
If you would like romance to be bottled, and I believe it has been, then Bed of Roses is the scent for you.
It is a rich sumptuous floral bouquet of great depth drying down to a delicious honeyed sandalwood base for a sated nose. The nuances of Bed of Roses include orange flowers and mandarin for a fruity nostalgic twist and cognac for a heady top. The boronia softens and fills the floral bouquet and checks the citrus from overpowering the flowers. The most surprising note is the rose leaf absolute which stops short of being an overtly green note but nevertheless canopies the fragrance with a gentle hint of vegetal unusual in a rose perfume.
Bed of roses is no Granny Perfume. It is sexy, timeless, ageless and universal. It is a rock song, a classical piano, an aria. Bon Jovi expresses well the rock side of Bed of Roses with their song of the same name.
