'Rose of Sharon is a rock rose that flourishes in harsh climates in the Middle East. It's unique ability to thrive on poor sandy soils and rocks, and thrive during long droughts and harsh winters speaks to me of beauty in hardship and survival through the toughest of circumstances. In Song of Solomon, chapter 2, the beloved woman is compared to a Rose of Sharon. She is uniquely resilient and beautiful.
When I am anxious about my identity, I can be easily tempted towards self-hatred, self-loathing or a false shame for being different to others. At such times, I wear a perfume of Rose of Sharon. It's sweet scent reminds me that Jesus lovingly created me for his unique purpose; that only when I do what I am created to do, will I flourish.' - Sharon Stay, Artisan Perfumer
