What’s a rose essence and a rose absolute? The essence of rose is obtained by distillation. They use an alembic to transform rose buds into aromatic molecules through water steam. At the end of the process the essence of rose is collected from the steam, drop per drop.
The rose absolute is obtained by solvent extraction. The rose buds are soaked in an organic solvent that will evaporate the aromatic molecules. The evaporation will create a sort of compact dough that contains all the interesting parts of the plant. This substance will then be turned into a liquid by adding alcohol. A filtration is finally necessary to obtain the absolute of rose.
Did you know? You need approximatively 5 tons of roses to make 1kg of rose essence when only 400kg of roses are necessary to obtain 1kg of rose absolute. Therefore the rose essence is rare and precious. The smell of the rose essence is also fresh and citrusy and is way more intense than the smell of rose absolute.
