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 Turkeyai??i??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 thatai??i??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 thatai??i??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.


To celebrate the launch of pureDKNY Rose, we are giving away pureDKNY a Drop of Verbena, pureDKNY a Drop of Vanilla 50ml and the new pureDKNY Rose to one lucky winner, along with pureDKNY Rose to 10 runners up. To be in with a chance of winning, please answer the following question…

I'm Alice, Al or, if you are the five year old me, Ice (yes, I did want to be a member of Kris Kross, and yes, I did wear my jeans backwards). Womenswear Editor at House of Fraser Online, I've grown out of backwards clothes and instead chose to invest my money in vintage sportswear and bomber jackets, while inking my body with unnecessary tattoos and rapping along to every word of The Streets - Original Pirate Material. My proudest moments were seeing a shoot I styled in my favourite magazine and getting a three-dart-finish in a game of darts. Oh, and Bart Simpson was my first crush.
