La Rose

I just had to capture this beautiful red rose in the garden today.
It really stood out against a blanket of honeysuckle.
En plus, it smelled divine, just as red roses should.

I always find that rose-scented products have a too-sweet, cloying smell which is nothing like what fresh roses smell like. They usually remind me of turkish-delight or rosewater, whereas a fresh flower smells almost juicy or fruity.

If one day I find a product that captures the beauty of the rose I'll definitely get it, still on the lookout though.

In the meantime I'll make do with the real thing. Sometimes nature wins hands down.
