Carpinteria-based entrepreneur and third-generation flower cultivator Peter Persoon has developed a natural grown rose bloom that produces botanical scents for months. Persoon’s Natural Fragrance Rose is a sustainable alternative to chemical-based scented candles and diffusers.

Each rose is produced using technology that replaces the plant’s water cells with bio-based moisturizing creams. Taking in moisture from the air, the blooms require no water or care, staying fresh and aromatic for months. With no need for refrigeration, Natural Fragrance Roses are transported and displayed in a glass vase which cuts over nine times the transport and emissions waste of traditionally manufactured roses.

In nature, strong-scented blooms quickly attract pollinators and die shortly thereafter. Commercially grown roses are bred as a more long-lasting solution, but they lose much of their beloved scent in the process. Persoon researched and developed an innovative approach to align the worlds of scent and beauty. Applying his patented technology to premium, natural blooms, Persoon replaces the plant’s water cells with bio-based moisturizing creams. The flowers self-hydrate by taking in moisture from the air, keeping them fresh up to 10 times longer than cut roses and up to three months in your home.
