It will bloom forever as it is frozen in time. Seriously. Argent Rose Studios is a personal favorite Ren Faire haunt of mine if only for the delicious smells. You see, they make metal roses of all shapes, colors, bud sizes, and SMELLS.
That’s right! The artists hand craft each and every one of these little beauties from steel. They are then expertly airbrushed, sealed, and daubed with rose (or other) scent hidden in a cleverly concealed sponge in the center. To renew the scent, you simply drip a little more oil onto the sponge and it smells like new! Truly, these are works of art. They have several bud “sizes” from just a bud to fully bloomed and in all colors of the rainbow. All of the colors are super vibrant and eye catching.
If a vase is not your style, what about a simple tabletop rose or some rose hair sticks?
I think my favorite part of heading to their booth each year is finding out what the new featured color/scent will be! Every year they have a featured collectable release scent and color. This year’s was called “Cherry Cordial” and it looked and smelled just like a luscious cherry candy.
These roses are great for gifts and will most certainly last longer than their real-life equivalents. If you would like to send an undying, sweet smelling pick-me-up, Argent Rose Studios can be found on their website and Facebook. I can’t wait to see next year’s new color and scent!
