    The Potomac Rose Society Presents FROM PETAL TO PERFUME:  An Olfactory Introduction to the Fascinating World of Roses & Fragrance,  

    Arielle Weinberg, Founder of arielle shoshana, The first niche fragrance boutique in Washington, D. C. Did you know that 1.6 million blossoms (4 tons!) of Rosa x damascena are required to produce 1 kg of rose oil?  How about the fact that rose fragrance has been used since ancient times as an antidepressant and aphrodisiac?  Join us on this fragrant journey from petal to perfume, as we learn the history, science, and language of rose fragrance and begin to discern the many and varied scents of the rose.
