This indulgent cleansing cream melts into a makeup-removing oil when massaged into skin. It has extracts from Rose de Granville flowers (cultivated in Dior’s own gardens in France), which help calm inflammation and leave skin feeling refreshed.

2. Fresh Rose Floral Toner, $63.

A couple of spritzes of this alcohol-free rose water toner will cool the skin, and leave it soothed and moisturised.

3. Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin EDP, $162.

The classic rose scent is given a spicy tinge when paired with pepper in this oriental-floral fragrance.

This intoxicating scent has the best of both worlds – it features both chocolate (praline) and rose notes, alongside vanilla, coffee and caramel. This might just be the ultimate perfume for dessert lovers.

5. Laura Mercier Infusion de Rose Nourishing Oil, $89.

Add a drop or two of this lightweight oil to your regular moisturiser for a boost of hydration. You can also use the oil to tame flyaway strands or soften nail cuticles.

6. Handmade Heroes Super Duper Nourishing Rice Scrub in Rose Petals, $17.90.

The blend of ground organic rice and rose petals in this gives the skin a gentle, moisturising scrub – the rice particles are fine, so the scrub doesn’t feel overly rough. We love that it smells just like bandung (rose syrup with milk) – so sweet and comforting.

7. By Terry Baume deRose Nutri-couleur in #01 Rosy Babe, $81.

This lip balm will keep your pout soft, hydrated and oh-so-kissable. We especially love the natural-looking pink sheen it leaves on the lips and the luxe-looking frosted glass packaging.

8. Penhaligon’s Peoneve EDP, $320.

Inspired by an English garden in summer, this light and crisp fragrance with rose, peony and vetiver notes is our go-to on scorching hot days.
