To the root of Rosa-Rosae
The Damask rose, first flower to be distilled
Corinne Péronne becomes passionate about roses in her 18th century family farm, located in Montpezat in the heart of the new Aquitaine area that. Among the thousands that bloom throughout the world, she sets her heart on the Damask rose. A rose renowned since Antiquity and the first to have been used in perfumery! It was in the 11th century in Persia, that Avicienne, a doctor, chemist and philosopher, extracted pure essential oils from it. – Source : Trust My Science
With the galloping soil concretization, the Damask rose has almost disappeared from the fields of France. Its essential oils and hydrolats come now mainly from Bulgaria, Turkey and Morocco to land in our cream pots and other beauty elixirs.

A rose introduced in a beauty In&Out
In 2015, Corinne, fascinated by this exceptional flower, decided to devote a few square meters to it and create Rosa-Rosae. Encouraged by a good first harvest, she ended up planting over 3,000 Damask roses. With Jacky Cabailh and Sylvain Gaboriaud, who met at Essec in 2020, the project took root and blossomed into the Beauty In&Out brand, phyltres.
