THE PRINCESS AND THE ROSES. I Attar, or otto, of roses, the world-famous per- fume, is chiefly made in Kasanlik, Bulgaria, the centre of the rose-growing country, where white roses form the hedges of fields. Red roses only are used in making otto of roses, and the per- fume is extracted from the petal, stalks, and leaves. The discovery of the fragrant attar took place 300 years ago. The Persian Princess Nour Djihan was wandering through her palace when she noticed an ugly yellowish oil floating on the surface of the rose-water 'basins. She at once ordered its removal, but it was found that when he oil was taken away the lovely perfume had disappeared. The virtue of the essential oil was found out in this strange way, and the attar of roses in Persia is still called Attar Ujinan. ihe_ botfles peculiar to attar of roses are very quaint, being long and very narrow, and practically "neckless." The glass is de- corated with gold, and the attar is contained in a tiny cylinder of glass inside the bottle.
