The rose belongs to the Rosa genus within the Rosaceae family. It is prized both for its aesthetic beauty and its distinctive fragrance. Extensively cultivated worldwide, roses are utilized not only for ornamental purposes but also in the food industry (such as infusions and confections), and in perfumery and cosmetology. From a botanical standpoint, a rose “flower” is an inflorescence, composed of numerous carpels and stamens, surrounded by petals that vary in number, shape, and color depending on the species and variety. Roses can also have medicinal applications, leveraging their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
