Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Preserved Roses And How Are They Made?

Preserved roses are real roses that are naturally preserved in a wax like solution. They are not left to dry instead they are processed with glycerine and other plant like elements which give the rose its life span and allow it to last four seasons or longer. EX: Glycerin is an ingredient in a bar of soap and candy, if you don't add any water they will last forever.

How Long Do Preserved Roses Last?

Each preserved rose lasts at least four seasons or longer with minimal care. The roses can last longer if properly maintained. We highly recommend not touching them as frequently to give the roses the longest lifespan. Please follow care instructions for longest life expectancy.

How To Care for My Eternal Fleur Preserved Roses?

Maintaining your preserved roses is easy! Here are some simple tools to keep your roses looking alive for four seasons or longer: Do not remove the roses from the rose box, Do not add any water, Keep roses away from sunlight and direct light, Keep roses at room temperature, Do not place your roses near any light fabrics. The less you touch your roses, the longer they will live! Please note that each order comes with Care Instructions in case you were wondering :)

Will The Colors On The Preserved Roses Run?

Yes, the colors may run especially if placed near light colored fabrics. Please note that dark rose colors tend to bleed more. EX: If you create a custom rose arrangement with red roses and white roses the red may bleed onto the white.

Do Preserved Roses Smell?

Yes, each preserved rose carries a scent and smells just like a real rose. Do note that the scent is added in as the roses lose their scent once they are processed in the glycerin. This is great for anyone who is hypoallergenic. The metallic roses may not smell due to their dyeing process.

Can You Remove The Preserved Roses From The Rose Box or Acrylic Box?

No, the preserved roses are designed to stay in the box and removing them will destroy their life span.

Can I Remove The Lid And Black Crinkle Paper From My Bloom Box?

Yes, if you plan on using a candle with your Bloom Box please remove the lid and the black crinkle paper inside of the Bloom Box. The lid and black crinkle paper are simply used to keep the roses and candle or box of chocolates protected during transit as well as keep dust away off the roses.

Is It Normal If My Preserved Roses Change Their Color?

Yes, please try to keep your preserved roses away from any sunlight or light bulbs as lighting may change or lighten the color of the preserved roses. Also, rose colors may change over time due to their natural processing.

Are Preserved Roses Safe For the Environment?

Yes, the naturally preserved roses are safe for the environment. All of our preserved roses are 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified.
