Behind a mat, soft pink glass, perfumes of Damascus rose and spearmint bond. Known as the "Queen of Flowers", the Damascus rose was praised in Syria for the finesse of its scent, its elegance and its exquisite corolla of petals. Celebrated since Antiquity, from China to Persia, and Europe to Maghreb, the rose proves once again that it is the symbol of love, beauty, and their combined frailty. By contrast, spearmint offers freshness with its deep green serrated leaves and cob-shaped pink or lilac flowers. Characteristic from North Africa's souk markets and palaces, it stands out with its exhilarating and subtle scent.
