In the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, a prince is condemned to a curse for judging an old beggar woman by her haggardly appearance. This old woman presents a rose as a gift in return for shelter. Without a single ounce of compassion, the prince crudely turns her away. Suddenly the old woman transforms into a beautiful young lady, and tells him that true beauty lies within.
To teach him a lesson, she transforms him into a beastly animal and presents him with “The Enchanted Rose.” The prince is to fall in love and find true beauty before he turns 21. In representation of time and youth, the rose will bloom and eventually perish, condemning the Beast to remain in his state forever.
As with most fairy tales, the prince or princess always finds true love and live happily ever after. Luckily the Beast finds Belle, a young lady who teaches him to see beauty from within.
What if you could make the beauty of a rose last forever?
The Eternal Rose is an interesting product we may offer soon to floral design professionals.
The Preservation Process
These roses are grown at the farms and cut once it has bloomed to the perfect diameter. They are then taken to facility and processed to remove the color. When they are translucent, the roses are placed in a tray for the artificial color tinting process. To maintain the rose’s appearance and shape, it is placed in a chamber to begin the “baking” process of preservation. The end result —a rose that lasts forever: An Eternal Rose.
