There was a nasty moment back in the 1st century AD when the Emperor Nero showered his dinner guests with rose petals and accidentally smothered one of them (let's face it, he never really had both oars in the water) but, on the whole, rose petals have had pretty good press. Semiramis, Queen of Syria, Cleopatra and the Empress Josephine were all crazy about them, and they knew a thing or two about pleasure.
And, back to the Romans, well, they used rose petals for just about everything; puddings, public baths, pillow stuffing, potions and perfume (and that's just the p-words). How can you argue with a nation that gave us straight roads and some very drinkable wine?
So, in the noblest traditions, scatter your rose buds while ye lay in a deep, warm bath. These wafer-thin, rose-scented soap petals melt rather than wilt and are actually more odoriferous (and less likely to be concealing displaced caterpillars) than the real thing.
A couple of petals strewn on the surface should do the trick, releasing a light rose scent to transport you to a bygone age of Bacchanalian abandon, men in dresses and underfloor heating. Blooming marvellous!
