The pureDKNY sustainability story unfolds with the classic Turkish rose. As with its predecessors, A Drop of Vanilla and A Drop of Verbena, A Drop of Rose evolved in a non-traditional way: in this story, the ingredient comes first.
PureDKNY Rose begins in Turkey’s Isparta valley in the Anatolian flower fields, where the delicate pink blossoms of rose damascene variety are harvested early each summer. It follows a generations-old process that’s virtually unaffected by modern technology, where the harvest season takes place every June, where each flower is hand-picked before dawn. By the end of the season, 2500 tons of petals have been bagged and transported to the distillery where they are gently rolled and processed. The end product is essential oil of rose, a potent raw material that’s later incorporated into the fragrance.
The resulting fragrance is rose in its simplest incarnation, straightforward but soft, uncluttered, and a very true representation of a garden rose with none of the heaviness of an old-fashioned floral.
The fragrances packaging is made of 100% recyclable glass and aluminium components, while the bio-degradable carton is made in facilities powered by renewable energy using materials sources in managed forests, printed with low-VOC inks, and the outer wrap is NatureFlex, made from cellulose rather than petro chemicals.
