Also, let me give you another interesting tidbit of information on roses. For years I did neurological and scientific studies on "paranormal" phenomena involving "ghosts" and "spirits." These were studies that were very quietly supported by government and academia all over the world. We used hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of equipment, oversight of many experts in their fields (electromagnetism, neurology, environmental science, astrophysics, etc...) along with very rigid scientific methodology. We had a very solid number of individuals who had recently lost a loved one in our studies. In the days following their loss, many of them reported the overwhelming and unusual smell of roses....even during the middle of winter.

I have been getting whiffs of flowers for no reason, there are no flowers in my home or in my neighborhood, and no special body soap or perfume. Sometimes I pick up the scent of my grandparents. They had a particular smell, like old dried up flowers. Like a potpourri of some sort, do you know what I mean? I heard about this and spirits, but I don't know if I believe in it or not. I just cannot justify an explanation for the smell. It only happens once and a while. There is no logical explanation.
