Rose has long been associated with love and romance, and this connection has been celebrated around the world on Valentine’s Day. From its ancient roots to its modern-day symbolism, the scent of rose has been used to express the depths of emotion and passion for centuries.
The rose’s association with love dates back to Roman and Greek mythology, where the flower was seen as a symbol of love, beauty, and fertility. In his epic poem The Odyssey, Homer wrote of the goddess Aphrodite, who was said to have created the rose from the blood of her lover Adonis.
In the Middle Ages, roses were often used to express feelings of love and passion. In the language of flowers, red roses symbolise love and romance, while white roses stand for innocence and virtue. The tradition of giving roses as a token of love was popularised in the sixteenth century, when the English poet Edmund Spenser wrote about the ‘Rose of Love’ in his poem The Faerie Queene.
Today, roses are still the most traditional flower for Valentine’s Day, and the scent of rose is still used to express a deep and passionate love.
