Roses for Autism launches charity perfume

BY David Salazar
GUILFORD, Conn. — With April and National Autism Awareness Month on the horizon, nonprofit Roses For Autism, which provides career training for transition-age students with autism at Pinchbeck Farm here, has created and launched Ardent Rose perfume, whose sales will benefit the organization’s training program. 
 
“In order to further fund our efforts, we were looking to create a non-perishable product that we could sell online that aligned with our core offerings,” Roses for Autism managing director Michelle Ouimette said. 
 
The perfume uses the farm’s own Lavande rose scent, and was developed in partnership Danbury, Conn.-based flavor and fragrance company Beduokian Research, which sponsored the perfume’s development by fragrance producer Robertet. 
 
Ardent Rose features a combination of Lavande rose, magnolia, geranium, sandalwood, musk and white amber, the organization said. Roses For Autism said that proceeds from perfume sales will allow it to expand its scholarship program, and that having a non-perishable product in the company’s offerings gives their interns more business learning opportunities. 
 
The perfume comes in a 1.7-fl. oz. bottle and carries a suggested retail price of $42.99. It’s currently available on the organization’s website. 
 
One-in-68 American children are identified as being on teh autism spectrum by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the unemployment or underemployment of people on the autism spectrum is nearly 88%.
