The rose is the top-selling flower in France, with greater than 22 million bunches bought yearly. It has been grown for 4 generations by the Meilland household on the French Riviera. An emblem of lovers, the rose can also be a favorite of perfumers. François Demachy, a fragrance designer and well-known Dior “nostril”, swears by it. Lastly, the flower’s perfume and hues could also be sensational, however its style is simply too. Within the medieval city of Provins, within the Seine-et-Marne area, rose petal jelly is a should for discerning palates.
