EVERYTHING’S COMING UP ROSES
Rose products are sprouting up everywhere I look. From decadent rose oil infused with twenty-four carat pink gold to more humble lip balms and scented candles; roses are staging a beauty take over. Throughout history they have been revered for their sweet scent; and thanks to science we now know that certain species of the flower are packed with vitamin C, soothe the skin, and may reduce skin damage and wrinkles. They have been coming onto the scene for a while with the occasional launch of a rose product but now brands like By Terry are creating entire ranges around the flower. So I’ve tested the market and compiled a list of new launches and old classics, here are some of my favorites:

ROCHELLE JACOBS, CO-FOUNDER JUNE JACOBS SPA COLLECTION
"I joined the business in 1999. My mother created the Peter Thomas Roth line with Peter while I was in college. I graduated from school and was on a finance mission, working at Lehman Brothers and I was on Wall Street. In 1999 my mother was still handwriting checks and there was not a computer in the office, it was crazy (laughs). She was running the entire business out of her desk without any technology. I said ‘Mom I want to come help you.’ She was a single mother and said ‘absolutely not, this is not how I raised you, you will work on Wall Street.’ So I interviewed with her and Peter and created this power point presentation like I did at Lehman Bothers and Peter was like ‘when you can start.’ My mother was more like ‘okay fine’ and that’s how I came into the company.
