Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier, Rose Water Sprinklers




"Deep" in the Souk (or Bazaar in Persian) you can find many an item, including these highly recognizable perfume labels, that have been converted into rose water sprinklers.  I picked these up for obvious reasons. For a little background, the process of distilling roses within water is an ancient process, and has been practiced in and around the Middle East/Mediterranean first by the Persians,  then Greeks, and Romans and the list goes on.  Rose water can be used for weddings and funerals, as well as food and cleaning. It has no limitations. However as a child I learned that it is not made to be ingested like a soda.
