Here at Parfum Flower Company in Aalsmeer, the heart of the worldwide floral industry, we see thousands and thousands of roses passing by everyday (We know, we have the best jobs in the world 😉 ).
We can’t help but have our favorite roses. Of course, it’s hard to pick one or two, so we all needed some time to think of our favorite ones. As a result, we’re going to discuss Arnold’s – our marketing manager – favorite scented roses today.

Peony Pink is one of our most beautiful roses, but upon arrival, the roses can look a bit weak. This is absolutely normal.
According to some of our florist customers it is one of the most attractive fragrant rose we have, and to some others to difficult to work with.
But that is mainly because she always arrives a little weak and sometimes with damaged outer petals.
(We ship our Garden Roses with guard petals in order to protect the blooms during shipping. Upon removal of the protective packaging, remove any brown or discolored guard petals. It is not uncommon to remove an average of 5 to 10 petals per bloom. For people not used in buying garden roses, varieties like ‘Peony Pink’ can look different from what they expect. But no worries, also these varieties will be perfect for your wedding arrangements, luxury event or just in a vase.)
Premium Scented Garden Rose ”Vitality”
Garden Rose Ivory Vitality is a creamy butter ivory rose that looks like layers of frosting squeezed onto a cupcake. Vitality is one of our most fragrant roses and is also white! After years of searching for a fragrant white garden rose, we found it in Vitality. It opens all the way, lasts 7 days in a vase, and has a lovely ivory tinge to the color. Petals are ruffled giving this rose a unique look.
