Do you enjoy wearing perfume or cologne? If so then give a thought to the ancient Damask Rose that is highly valued for its fragrance and subsequent production of Rose Oil or "Attar of Roses".  Introduced to Europe by the returning Crusaders (no not the Canterbury Super 14 team) Damask roses quickly became popular and were widely used by Apothecaries of the day for "medicinal" purposes, with rose water being seen as a cure for almost every ill. I supose if you weren't cured at least you would smell better!
