Can someone tell me, Where can I buy the Rosense Rose water in Goreme. Is it more expensive than Istanbul. Thanks!
Rose sense known as Gül suyu is commonly used in Turkey to pour on visiting guests hands in place of kolonya (lemon cologne).
Unlike Arabic cultures in Turkey it is rarely used for cooking (except for rose flavoured Turkish delight) and use it predominantly as a light scented refresher that people pour and rub on their hands.
Turks tend to use rose leaves in some dishes and very rarely the water.
In any case the rose water you are searching is very common in Turkey and can be found in pretty much any milkbar or market.
This is the most common appearance of it so look for a bottle that looks like this or simply ask the cashier Gül suyu varmi? Meaning do you have rose water.
Rosense is a brand name for products with the Isparta rose as the main ingredient. It can be bought online:
I do not know about Göreme where it can be bought. It is for sale in Fethiye as I saw in another thread you are going to Fethiye (Paspatur) as well.
If you want just rosewater for use in cooking then you can buy Şelale Gül suyu even in Migros, that comes very cheap and is used like for in ricepudding, semolina, güllaç (a delicious starch pastry with nuts, mile and rosewater only available during ramadan)
hope this helps, good luck!
thanks for the information.
