For generations, roses have symbolized love, passion, and romance. Many consider a rose to be the official flower of Valentine’s day. The flower has been featured in many forms of media, taking center stage in mushy movies and television shows, sometimes even playing a symbolically notorious role, as in the film ‘American Beauty’.
Being such a popular flower, and one that smells good, it isn’t a wonder that roses and their scent have been incorporated into soap. If the flower is associated with the many great love stories of our history, then it is only natural that a rose bath be associated with luxury and love for the skin.
