Roses in the Balken Mountains: Produce some of the world’s finest perfume. In order to get the best fragrance the workers must pick them in the darkest part of the night. The start right after midnight and finish within two hours. Scientific study has shown that this is the interval where the blossoms give their most pleasing scent and that with the coming of day they lose 40 % of their fragrance.

Dark nights are necessary for our greatest fragrance to appear.
