Known the world over for its beauty and its alluring scent, roses are a popular floral because of their awesome aroma. There are, however, different types of fragrances roses can have due to their genetic make-up, growing conditions, and age. For example, darker colored roses have a stronger fragrance than lighter-colored ones. Also, the smell of a rose as a bud is different from when the rose is fully opened, and the rose’s fragrance intensifies when the weather is warm and humid. Smelling roses is considered relaxing and restorative as it makes us slow down and breathe deeply and slowly as to enjoy its wonderful, beautiful scent.
