Infinity Roses

Infinity Roses (also known as Forever Roses)

On the surface, Infinity Roses are real fresh roses that have been preserved with our unique preservation method. Each rose is picked fresh from our Fairtrade farm in Ecuador and goes through a preservation process. We replace the sap with a natural wax-based substance, which ensures that each rose maintains its original texture and appearance. Our flowers appear fresh and maintain an incredible fresh fragrance for as long as three years.

We create roses that retain all their wonderful qualities so that you can enjoy them for years, not days. Our roses must be kept from water and will only require occasional dusting to keep their beautiful colour.

The Way Infinity Roses Work

Our Infinity Roses are real Fairtrade farmed roses that undergo a natural preservation process. We swap their natural sap with a non-toxic wax-based solution, which allows them to retain their original characteristics.

Thanks to this natural preservation process, our Infinity Roses are guaranteed to maintain their wonderful smell and fresh look for at least one year. However, if properly cared for, our roses can retain their features for up to three years.

Infinity Roses Are Real Flowers

Yes, Infinity Roses are real flowers. Our roses are procured directly from our Ecuadorian farm and naturally preserved. Unlike fresh-cut roses, our Infinity Roses won't fade after just a few days. They will instead maintain their natural appearance for years, not days.

Where We Retail Our Infinity Roses in the UK

The Amaranté headquarters is currently located in Stratford, East London. All our rose boxes and bouquets are made to order. However, we welcome everyone to visit our showroom, where you will find a selection of our rose boxes on display. You can purchase all our forever roses on our website and arrangement shipment to an address of your choice. Worldwide shipping is also available .

Our Infinity Roses are Not Long Stem (Not Yet)

Our floral arrangements do not currently include long-stem roses. We encourage you to sign up for our newsletter to learn about new products as soon as they're launched!

There Are No Differences Between an Infinity Rose and an Eternal Rose

Both terms "Infinity" and "Eternal" refer to real, fresh roses that undergo a unique preservation process. These terms are often used interchangeably for branding purposes. Still, all refer to the family of preserved roses or, more generally, preserved or forever flowers.

Our Infinity Roses however are different from the rest. They are responsibly sourced cruelty-free products that support reforestation projects. We ensure that our farms meet and exceed Fairtrade standards while fairly compensating for their work. We are also committed to neutralising the carbon footprint of each purchase by planting more flowers than we pick.

Forever Flowers are Expensive, But They Are Worth it

Around Valentine’s Day alone, a dozen arranged fresh roses could cost anywhere from £45 bought from a corner shop to £75 at a high-end florist. Although fresh flowers make a beautiful gift, they require maintenance and rarely survive for more than seven days. Whereas preserved flowers may cost more but can be enjoyed and adored for far longer.

A dozen preserved roses arranged in our medium round Infinity Rose boxes start at £99 and are guaranteed to maintain their beautiful features from at least a year with no maintenance required.

But there's more to our Infinity Rose Boxes than just their long-lasting look. All our floral arrangements are Fairtrade certified, and prices are to ensure we can responsibly source our roses. We are committed to:

  • Compensating rose farmers fairly for their labour.
  • Leaving the smallest possible carbon footprint. We source our roses directly from Ecuadorian farms so that our flowers are not shipped to or from any wholesaler, and we strive to produce more O2 than CO2.
  • Offering our customers an alternative to carbon-intensive fresh-cut roses. By purchasing preserved roses, you positively impact the world and the environment by reducing the carbon footprint of rose farming.
  • Working on a made-to-order basis. By holding zero stock, we produce zero waste.

Forever Roses as a Gift

Our customers love purchasing Infinity Roses as gifts for their spouses, partners, a family member, or friend. All our luxurious handcrafted rose boxes are perfect gifts for all occasions, particularly Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Birthday and Anniversaries just to name a few!

If you want to ensure your Infinity Roses are delivered on a specific date, please select that date on our calendar. Be advised that we do not deliver on UK bank holidays but offer a Sunday delivery option.

Please consider that each arrangement is handmade and takes 1 to 2 business days to create. For this reason, we suggest you always plan your gift delivery and allow enough time for it to be made and shipped.

Dried Flowers

A Definition of Dried Flowers

Dried flowers, also known as forever flowers, are real. We process them using our natural preservation method, which perfectly preserves every stem for long-lasting life.

The Preservation Process

Typically, the procedure is to harvest the blooms and hang them upside down for approximately one week in a warm environment, so they hydrate naturally. In most cases, when flowers dry, they become a little brittle. However, they maintain their shape and colour. We then preserve them using our natural preservation method.

Dried flowers Real Flowers

All our dried flowers are 100% real flowers. Our flowers are dried and preserved using special methods that allow them to last years, not days.

We Do Not Use Fake Flowers

Never–fake flowers are usually made from plastic and are therefore not beneficial for the environment. We pride ourselves on using real flowers sourced from Fairtrade and B-Corp-certified sustainable flowers. For our event and wedding clients, we offer real silk flowers and our preserved range. Please consult our events page for more information about our flowers for events.

Forever Flowers Last A Very Long Time

If they are looked after correctly, our dried flowers will look beautiful and last for up to three years. You can find out more on how to look after your flowers on our product care page.

Dried Flowers Can Maintain their Scent

Some stems can retain their original scent. For example, Eucalyptus keeps its scent that we all know and love. We do not recommend spraying these flowers to add a scent, as this could damage them. You could add a small drop of essential oils into the arrangement. However, please be aware that this may shorten their lifespan.

Dried Flowers Are Sustainable

Dried flowers are a much more sustainable alternative to fresh flowers for the following reasons:

  • Unlike the fresh flower industry, dried flower stems are grown outside in fields and, therefore, are not intensely farmed in a greenhouse
  • Growing flowers naturally reduces the number of chemicals transmitted into the environment
  • A dried flower bouquet will last for as long as three years, producing little to no waste. On the other hand, fresh flowers are farmed and thrown away in days.

People Tend to Attribute a Special Meaning to Flowers...

Lots of people choose to buy dried flowers due to their low environmental impact. They are very on-trend because they are much more sustainable than their fresh alternative. They can be used to dress a wedding, or any other significant event and then be kept as a reminder of the day as a special keepsake. Flowers carry much sentimental value, and drying the stems out is the best way to keep them for a long time.

Forever Flowers Shouldn't Be Placed Outside

We do not recommend keeping your flowers outside. The moisture of humidity in the air may cause the stems to mould. During the warm months of the year, the direct sunlight will almost certainly cause the colours of the stems to fade.

Recommended dried flower arrangements as a gift

A dried flower arrangement is a beautiful gift for all occasions. We always recommend a gift that will go nicely with the interior space it will be put in. You could choose a coloured bouquet that will match perfectly, or you might consider a colour that will add contrast and be a colourful addition to the ambient. We also recommend you consider what type of arrangement the person you are gifting will like. Would they prefer a small, neutral arrangement or one that is big and bold? If you're unsure what gift is best, please don't hesitate to contact one of our personal shoppers, who is always on hand to help.

Dried Flowers Do Not Give Hay Fever

Luckily for any hay fever sufferers, all our dried flower arrangements do not contain pollen. All the live particles that cause hay fever will have dried out, so they are safe for everyone to have indoors.

Our Packaging for Dried Flowers

When purchasing our dried flower bouquets, our florists carefully hand pick the stems for your chosen bouquet and hand tie the arrangement. The bouquet is then covered in gift wrapping to protect your flowers. Your bouquet is then carefully placed into our Amaranté packaging box and tied down to avoid the flowers from moving about during delivery.
