General Description  
This oil, also known by its old name 'otto' is produced principally in Bulgaria and Turkey. It is expensive as it takes millions of rose petals to produce a reasonable measure. It is produced in old-fashioned copper stills and tends to solidify at 16 degrees celsius due to its waxy composition. It is very persistent, hence its use in high quality perfumes. Once the oil gets on the fingers or clothes the odour persists for days. Attributed to Noor Jehan when she had it skimmed from ornamental lakes at the Taj Mahal. Known however for many centuries it has been used for medicines, jams, syrups, rose waters to name but a few
