I Wish you could Smell this Rose!
Does anyone remember Sweet Honesty perfume by Avon? I used to have this as a young girl. This Rose smells just like that perfume. I'm not sure of the name of this Rose. I got it on clearance from Walmart a couple years ago. I think I paid around $2.00 well worth it!
It's said that Goddess of Flowers, Chloris came upon a dead wood nymph in the forest. She was saddened by this. So she asked the other Gods and Goddesses to transform her lifeless body into the Rose. The God of Wine, Dionysus gave the Rose it's Scent and Nectar. The Rose's Beauty came from the Goddess Aphrodite. And the Three Sisters Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia(also know as the Graces) bestowed the gifts of happiness, intelligence, and eternal youth. Chloris bestowed the Rose with a crown of dewdrops and made her The Queen of The Flowers! Fitting for such a beauty! So please stop today and smell the Roses! Yep I'm wearing my rose-colored glasses today!
