I was chosen to review the Glass Cube with Preserved Rose from Scented Floral Creations. The product itself is a preserved rose and alisier leaves in a glass vase, similar to a square candle vase, filled with coloured sand, stones and artificial water. The first thing I noticed when I opened the packaging was the fabulous smell of the rose, it seemed quite strong at first but once it had been out on display for a little while the effect was much more subtle, yet still maintained the aroma of fresh roses. The item came packed very securely but the rose was slightly closed up when opened. Again, once it had been out for a short time it opened up as seen in the images supplied on the website.
There are four choices of colour: pink, purple, yellow and red so there is option which will go with almost any decor. I was sent the purple flower, and all choices come with the same coloured stones to match. The rose is presented beautifully, in an elegant sturdy glass cube, with layered stones of complimenting colours and an ivory bow around the outside.
The product met my expectations, and exceeded them with regard to the subtle yet undeniable smell of fresh roses that it provides. It is a great quality product and of a good size that it would suit as decoration for anywhere in the home such as table, mantelpiece or windowsill. It would make an ideal present for a loved one, particularly Mother’s Day or a special birthday gift.
With an RRP of £28.50 this item is a little on the pricey side, which is the only reason I haven’t scored it 5/5. Otherwise, it is a top quality product and a welcome addition to my home decor.
