To-day is April Fool's Day. So be careful if you received a fragrant rose, especially red in colour. It may just be a scarlet deception.
Roses are a clear favourite for most people. I like them mainly for their fragrance; and also reminds me of my youthful days in university where I would place one in a beautiful Chianti bottle. Chianti is Italy's most famous red wine, which takes its name from a traditional region of Tuscany where it is produced.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chianti
