Fans of Disney, roses and magical things listen up! We’ve found it. The Enchanted Rose. You know, the one from Beauty and the Beast destined to make Beast all furry and cranky (and quite frankly more handsome than when he became a human again) unless he finds love before the last petal from the Enchanted Rose falls? The one that bloomed for years because MAGIC?
Well folks, clearly magic exists because we’ve found a real-life Enchanted Rose that stays fresh for up to 18 months. And when we say it’s still fresh, we mean FRESH. The petals still feel velvety smooth, the rose maintains its shape, colour and brightness for MORE THAN A YEAR.
Legend has it (and by legend, we mean a nifty press release) that an Equadorian flower grower was so inspired by the most precious of flowers (the rose, duh) that
she invented a scientific way of freeze drying the the bloom performed some super secret magic so it stays ever… er, blooming.
Big brand names such as Chanel, Guerlain, Bobbi Brown and Burberry are already in love with this bloomin’ marvellous creation, natch. And Brisbane is home to the exclusive Australian stockists: the Northside Flower Market. The roses are available in a bold and bright rainbow of 22 different colours and can be made to order.
So now you can give (or receive) the gift of roses without worrying about the fact that they’re gonna wilt in a week or two, and what that says about your relationship. (Just kidding. We love roses, fresh, enchanted or otherwise!) But seriously, how romantic would it be to get a rose that never says die? Well, at least for a year or so anyway! At this rate, the rose could actually outlive some relationships. Kim Kardashian’s first marriage, we’re talking to you.
