What are Infinity Roses?
On the surface, Infinity roses are real fresh roses that have been preserved with our unique scientific method. Each rose is picked fresh from our Fairtrade farm in Ecuador and goes through a preserving process whereby the sap is replaced by a natural wax-based substance, which ensures that each rose maintains its original texture and appearance, making them always appear fresh and smell incredible.
We create roses that retain all of their wonderful qualities so that you can enjoy them for years, not days. They don’t need to be watered and only need a bit of dusting to keep their beautiful colour.
How do Infinity Roses work?
Our Infinity Roses are real Fairtrade-farmed roses that undergo a preservation process. We swap their natural sap with a non-toxic wax-based solution, which allows them to retain their original characteristics.
Thanks to our scientific preservation method, our roses are guaranteed to maintain their wonderful smell and fresh look one year. However, if properly cared for, our roses can retain their features for up to three years.
Is there a difference between an Infinity Rose and an Eternal Rose?
In short, no. Both terms Infinity and Eternal refer to real, fresh roses that undergo a preservation process. These terms are often used interchangeably for branding purposes but all refer to the family of preserved roses or, more in general, preserved flowers.
Our Infinity Roses, however, are different from the rest. They are responsibly sourced, cruelty-free products that support reforestation projects. In fact, Amaranté ensures farmers meet and exceed Fairtrade standards, while being fairly compensated for their work. We are also committed to neutralising the carbon footprint of each purchase by planting more flowers than we pick.
Are Forever Roses real flowers?
Yes, Forever Roses are real flowers - Absolutely. Our products are real Ecuadorian preserved roses that are produced using our scientific method. Unlike fresh-cut roses, however, Infinity Roses are able to display their beautiful qualities for years, not days.
Are Forever Roses long-stem?
Our floral arrangements do not currently include long-stem roses. We encourage you to sign up to our newsletter to learn about new products as soon as they’re launched!
Preserved flowers are expensive. Are Forever Roses Worth it?
Around Valentine’s Day, a dozen arranged fresh roses could cost anywhere from £45, if bought from a corner flower shop, to £75 at a high-end florist. Although they make a beautiful gift, fresh-cut roses require maintenance and rarely survive for more than seven days.
A dozen preserved roses arranged in our medium round hatbox start at £99 and are guaranteed to maintain their beautiful features for at least a year with no effort required on your end.
But there’s more to Amaranté’s preserved roses than their long-lasting sumptuous look. Our floral arrangements are Fairtrade certified and priced 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.

Does a Forever Rose have a particular meaning?

Our stunning Forever Rose compositions are real preserved roses that last for 365 days. By purchasing one of our beautiful preserved flower arrangements, you can delight your loved ones for years, not days.
To us, however, Infinity Roses are more than just a thoughtful, luxurious gift. Preserved flowers symboliSe our commitment to respecting the environment and caring for rose farmers and their families' welfare.
By purchasing roses that last years, you contribute to reducing the carbon emissions caused by rose farming. Our products are also Fairtrade certified, and we compensate our farmers and workers fairly for their labour.
Does a Forever Rose require special care?
To craft out Infinity Roses, we preserve real, fresh roses with our scientific preservation method. Such a process ensures that our everlasting rose arrangements maintain their exquisite look for at least one year.
But with the proper maintenance, your Infinity Roses can last up to three years. Caring for preserved roses is simple:
- Avoid direct exposure to light, especially sunlight.
- Keep your preserved roses in a room temperature environment.
- Occasionally brush them to remove dust that may accumulate over time using a soft brush.
- Preserved roses should not be in contact with water, steam or any other substance.
- Avoid frequently touching as the oils from hands can wear the preserved petals.
- Avoid placing near strong air conditioning fans or strong air vents.
- Keep your preserved roses in their box as they are secure and happy there.

We currently arrange our Fairtrade preserved roses inside beautifully handcrafted cardboard, brushed suede, and acrylic boxes, designed to complement our everlasting flowers perfectly. To ensure that your preserved roses maintain original qualities, you mustn't remove them from their box.

How long does a Forever Rose really last?
We stand by the science behind our preservation process, and we guarantee that your preserved roses will maintain their beautiful features for at least one year.
Caring for your Infinity Roses requires minimal effort. At the same time, we suggest that you keep them at room temperature, avoid contact with sunlight and water, and do not remove them from their box. Occasionally, you can dust your roses to preserve their original look. If properly maintained, our flowers can last for up to three years.
Does a Forever Rose need pruning?
Infinity Roses require minimal maintenance and no pruning. Leave them inside their box, avoid contact with sunlight and water, and lightly dust if needed.
Can I place Forever Roses in a vase or a glass?
To ensure that your Forever Roses remain fresh for many years to come, we suggest that you refrain from removing them from their box.

What are Forever Roses teddy bears?
Forever Roses teddy bears are flower arrangements consisting of preserved roses applied over a foam teddy bear.
Foam is, however, often derived from polystyrene. This material is non-biodegradable and, if not disposed of correctly, it can release harmful chemicals into the environment. Moreover, polystyrene manufacturing is a carbon-heavy process that significantly contributes to global warming.
Can I purchase a Forever Rose teddy bear from Amaranté London?
Amaranté is committed to protecting our beautiful Earth by reducing waste and carbon emissions. For this reason, we do not offer them. These arrangements consist of preserved roses applied onto a teddy-shaped foam, a material derived with polystyrene. Polystyrene production is known to contribute to global warming. Foam is also non-biodegradable and can potentially leak polluting chemicals into the environment. As an eco-friendly alternative to foam teddy bears, we offer real teddies accompanied by our stunning preserved roses.
