A rose by any other name would smell as sweet… Shakespeare’s words ring more true than ever on Valentine’s Day when bouquets abound, but as we all know, flowers only last a week (at best). This year, why not try a rose-scented gift that continues to give well into spring and possibly beyond? From skincare and body products to hair mists and more, these products give you myriad ways to stop and smell the roses.
Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist
Offering instant refreshment for your skin (and your nose), this soothing, hydrating mist envelops you with the sweet scent of roses. With moisturizing and skin-balancing benefits courtesy of marshmallow root, aloe vera and, of course, rose extract sourced from Jurlique’s own organic farm in Australia, it’s no wonder Adriana Lima, Amber Heard, Amy Adams, Ellen DeGeneres and countless other celebrities can’t get enough of the stuff.
REN Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil
Anyone who’s ever taken a bath with actual rose petals knows it takes a bit of work to clean up afterwards—which is the last thing you want to do when you’re blissed out. This luxurious bath oil is a much better bet thanks to a blend of rose otto, geranium and palmarosa oils that hydrates skin, eases inflammation and relieves stress. In addition to body care, REN’s expansive range of skincare and haircare powered by plant- and mineral-derived ingredients is free of “nasties” (i.e. potentially questionable or harmful ingredients), and is a favorite of Emma Roberts, Jourdan Dunn and Sienna Miller.
Diptyque Eau Rose Hair Mist
Your hair is essentially a blank canvas for fragrance, and this spritz is a chic way to surround yourself with the subtle scent of rose (and a zesty dash of spice). Part of Diptyque’s full rose-centric range of perfumes, body products, home accessories and more, the nourishing mist contains camellia oil to protect strands and boost shine. An Instagram-famous decor staple, this French brand is synonymous with a stylish home, and celebrity fans like Rita Ora, Denise Richards and Emma Watson prove it.
Byredo Hand Scrub
Beloved by Victoria Beckham, Kate Bosworth, Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner, this cult-favorite fragrance house uses its sumptuous scents in a variety of personal-care formulations—including hand scrub. This hydrating, oil-based exfoliator leaves skin silky-smooth, and its rose-petal “heart” is punctuated with pink pepper, raspberry, magnolia, patchouli and musk to create a sophisticated scent.
Molton Brown Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Pamper Gift Set
These bath and body essentials elevate any shower routine and by layering the shower gel, body cream and hand cream you get a surprisingly long-lasting fragrance. Not exactly a straight-up rose scent, the aroma of these products features a delectable blend of sweet rose, tangy grapefruit and tarte rhubarb for a truly sumptuous sensory experience—and celebrity fans of the brand such as Kristin Chenoweth and Leighton Meester are likely to agree.
Cochine Saigon Vietnamese Rose & Delentii Scented Candle
Nothing makes a room feel more inviting than a beautiful scented candle, and this luxurious luminary infuses your space with notes of rose, bergamot, violet and Delentii orchid. The perfect way to set the mood this Valentine’s Day, we hear Alicia Keyes is a fan of this fancy fragrance brand, which also offers bath and body products, diffusers and gorgeously-packaged gifts in scents ranging from fresh florals to rich, sultry woods.
