Popular Osmanthus Among People

Middle Eastern in origin, Oud (also known as Agarwood) is the resinous wood of a particular species of tree caused due to an infection. It has been used over thousands of years, mostly in traditional perfumes and as incense. Oud also pairs very well with spicy and fruity fragrances to create a powerfully masculine fragrance. This too is suitable for special occasions when one is trying to woo a romantic partner.

Do check that the perfume you buy is made of real Oud oil instead of synthetic ingredients since there will be a marked difference in quality. Any perfume containing this ingredient will have a powerful aroma that takes a long time to develop when it comes in touch with your skin and you should therefore avoid using it in large quantities at one go. All in all, an Oud perfume is a very good buy because of its masculine nature.

Know About The Real Meaning Of Yellow Roses

The yellow rose might be younger than all the other rose colors, but that doesn’t make its history and meaning any less fascinating. Yellow roses were first discovered in the wild at parts of the Middle East during the 18th century. Before its discovery, roses were cultivated in shades of red, pink, and white. Once the first yellow roses were introduced to Europe, however, their popularity quickly grew.

At around the time the yellow rose was introduced to the West, hybridization techniques and experiments on flower cross-breeding were being innovated and perfected. These experiments played an important part in the evolution of the yellow rose.

Yellow Roses

What draws people to most flowers is their subtle, sweet-smelling fragrance – a trait that yellow roses from the Middle East did not share. In fact, the opposite was true; the first yellow roses had a pungent, unpleasant odor. Breeding and cultivation methods changed this, and rose hybridizers were able to slowly introduce the pleasing aroma that rose lovers enjoy.

As the yellow rose evolved, so did the meanings people attach to it. The color yellow is associated with the sun, the source of life and warmth. The first civilizations worshipped the sun as a god because of its key importance to life on Earth. It’s no big surprise that for many Eastern cultures, the vivid color of the sun would hold positive meanings such as wisdom, joy, and power. When the yellow rose was brought to 18th century Europe, however, the color yellow had more negative overtones.

As such, yellow roses were used as a symbol for dying love and jealousy for a long time. However, its negative meaning eventually got replaced by the more universal, positive meaning of the color yellow. Today, people commonly associate yellow flowers with joy, friendship, and delight.

A bouquet of bright yellow rose blooms reminds its recipient of sunny, cheerful emotions like happiness and warmth. As opposed to the romantic meanings attached to red and pink roses, yellow roses are used as a symbol for friendship. Yellow flowers send the message of appreciation, gratitude, and platonic love without the romantic overtones of other rose colors.

As such, they make the perfect gift for someone who’s sick at the hospital or who is generally feeling down. Yellow roses also promise new beginnings, which make them appropriate for occasions like graduations, birthdays, and homecomings. There is probably no other flower that can brighten up someone’s day the way a yellow rose can.
