(POSTPONED) The World of Roses: A Masterclass with Maison Sulékó

Date: 27 Jan 2024, 1:30pm - 3:00pm (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Perfume Masterclass with Maison Sulékó

Join us for a new exclusive Online Perfume Masterclass dedicated to the Rose! 
A collaboration with Maison Sulékó, live from Paris.

Let’s dive into the world of roses and find out what is a known fact and what is still left to uncover about the Queen
of Flowers, which has been fascinating painters, poets, doctors, gardeners, chemists, botanists, perfumers and chefs for centuries… 

Rosa is one of the most ancient flowers. No other flower has such a wide range of sizes, colors, shapes and textures. First, we will
explore its complex genealogy to better understand how and why the flower has evolved. You will learn about “
Wild Roses”, “Old
Garden Roses
”, “Modern Roses” and discover how both nature and men have contributed to such a wide variety of species.

We will tell you about Maison Sulékó’s favorite gardens to discover ancient and new species; these heavens of peace designed by talented gardeners
might inspire you to create your own! We will then focus on two specific roses cultivated for their unique fragrance: 
Rosa Damascena and Rosa Centifolia.
You will learn about their history, their specificities and discover the famous 
Rose Valleys where they are cultivated in France, Bulgaria, Turkey and Morocco. We will explain how roses are processed to obtain rose essential oil and absolute, and tell you about the Sulékó language of scents and the messages conveyed by the rose.

As you discover our Vy Roza Eau de Parfum you will see how rose essence comes into play in a perfume to narrate a story and to reflect the state of mind of a person.

Presentation in English by Anastasia Sokolow, founder of Maison Sulékó in Paris.
