The Rose is the oldest known flower to man and has always been about love and the heart.
Legend has It was created by Chloris, the Greek goddess of flowers, out of the lifeless body of a nymph she had found in a wooded glade. She asked for help from Aphrodite, the goddess of love, to offer up beauty, and Dionysus, the god of wine to grant nectar and a lovely sweet scent, and the three Graces to give charm, brightness and joy. She then asked Zephyr the West Wind if he could blow away the clouds, and finally Apollo, too shine and make the flower bloom. The Rose was born and immediately crownedQueen of the Flowers.
