Damascus roses (Rosa damascena) are among the oldest members of the rose family, dating back thousands of years. They are known for their white or pink double flowers and their strong, distinctive fragrance, which is why the flowers are often used in making perfumes.The leaves are pinnate, with five (rarely seven) leaflets. The roses are a light to moderate pink to light red. The relatively small flowers grow in groups. The bush has an informal shape. It is considered an important type of Old Rose, and also important for its prominent place in the pedigree of many other types. The flowers are harvested for their fine fragrance, and are commercially harvested for rose oil used in perfumery and to make rose-water and ?rose concrete?. The flower petals are also sometimes used directly to flavor food or to make tea and are considered safe for human consumption.
