If you are fed up with seeing images of bunches of long stem roses in the run up to Valentine's Day, why not go straight to the heart of the plant and pick up one of the multitude of beauty and home luxuries that are full of all the best bits of the over-gifted flower.

The light, delicate perfumed scent that was once associated with a more mature woman has had a bit of a renaissance and everyone from Jo Malone to Diptyque have enrobed their products in the fragrant scent that also has many benefits for the skin. Natural, sensitive-skin friendly and anti-bacterial, rose water and oils have long been a go-to for beauty brands.

Rather than spending money on a bouquet that will be gone in a week, treat yourself or another to some roses you can keep.
