Pure bulgarian rose oil, rose otto, rose attar
Definition of pure bulgarian rose oil :
Rose oil, meaning either rose otto (attar of rose, attar of roses) or rose absolute (even absolute means not natural steam extraction), is the essential oil extracted from the row petals of various types of rose (rosa damascena is used in Bulgaria, but it can be rose centifolia like in south of France). Pure bulgarian rose otto is extracted only through steam distillation, while rose absolutes are obtained through solvent extraction or supercritical carbon dioxide extraction. Even with a high price and the advent of organic synthesis, rose oils are still perhaps the most widely used essential oil in perfumery.

Even though these compounds exist in less than 1% quantity of rose oil, they make up for slightly more than 90% of the odor content due to their low odor detection thresholds.
Production of Rose oil and steam distillation processus :
Distillation In the process of distillation, large stills, traditionally of copper, are filled with roses and water. The still is fired for 60–105 minutes. The vaporized water and rose oil exit the still and enter a condensing apparatus and are then collected in a flask.
This distillation yields a very concentrated oil, direct oil, which makes up about 20% of the final product. The water which condenses along with the oil is drained off and redistilled, cohobation, in order to obtain the water-soluble fractions of the rose oil such as phenethyl alcohol which are a vital component of the aroma and which make up the large bulk, 80%, of the oil.
The two oils are combined and make the final rose otto. Rose otto is usually dark olive-green in color and will form white crystals at normal room temperature which disappear when the oil is gently warmed. It will tend to become more viscous at lower temperatures due to this crystallization of some of its components.
