The Bulgarian Tradition


Bulgaria, member of the European Union of 2007, is located in the South East of Europe, just above Greece. Consisting of large farmland, Bulgaria has developed since the 17th century the cultivation of the Rose, probably imported by the Ottomans from Turkey. It is from the 19th century that a prosperous industry was derived from it, mainly based on the distillation of Essential Oil and Floral Water from Damascus Rose.

Today, Bulgaria is the world's leading producer of Rose Damas and Lavender essential oils for cosmetics and perfumery. A tradition of cosmetics has also resulted.

The Valley of the Bulgarian Roses

The Valley of the Roses is located in the center of Bulgaria, enclosed between 2 mountain massifs (the Rhodopees in the South, the Great Balkan in the North). This exceptional geographical situation, its climate (harsh in winter, lime and wet in the spring and summer) and its soil, have allowed the development of the Rose Damascena culture, originally imported from Turkey (initially this rose comes from the region of Damascus, hence its name). The capital of the Valley of the Roses, Kazanlak, is also the center of the economic and folkloric activity linked to the cultivation of the Rose and especially the production of essential oil of rose.
