Tea Rose Ether

Product Description

Rosa odorata, mostly known as a Tea Rose,  cultivated in China and was introduced to Europe in the 1800s, having fragrant tea-scented yellowish or pink flowers.

However, the scent of these roses is rather different from that of traditional roses. Surprisingly, their scent is strongly influenced by the aromatic compound orcinyl dimethyl ether, or 3,5-dimethoxy-toluene, which is chemically related to the oakmoss odorants. This phenol ether has a warm and sweet, nut-like, earthy-mossy odour – according to Arctander.
