VivaRoses Review & Giveaway
By: Elizabeth D
Unless you're Katniss Everdeen, you probably like roses. They're pretty, fragrant, unique and the colors are universally understood. And what's better than a few roses? A few dozen. That's what you get when you order from VIVAROSES.
VIVAROSES is a company who has partnered with a farm in Cotopaxi, Ecuador. Why a farm located next to a volcano in Ecuador? Legend has it that a poor farmer vying the affection of a princess searched high and low until he found the perfect roses to win her hand in marriage.
The website shares this story along with adorable other stories for the bouquets you can order. They carry bouquets of 24, 50 or 100 from $50-100. Shipping is even free! The only drawback is the lead-time required to get your order. Current orders have delivery dates beginning 7 days from now.
VIVAROSES offers concierge type services, where you can schedule future deliveries for important dates or get an auto-shipment for a discount. There's even an incredible incentive program - for every referral you get 2 dozen roses for free. It works, I did it!
I chose to send the Farmer's Choice to a friend. The packaging was a chic black and the interior was reminiscent of a Victoria's Secret bag. The roses were bundled per dozen and then carefully wrapped in 4's. The attention to detail was great but it generated a lot of (recylcable) waste.
The roses were gorgeous and required minimal pruning. Of concern was the lack of food provided for so many flowers: only 1 package for 50 roses. This seemed to be an exception based on feedback from my other orders.
After 5 days, the roses began to wither but they lasted up to 10 days with changing the water and adding sugar. This was fine since I needed my pitchers back - it's hard to find that many tall vases!
Overall VIVAROSES is a unique concept for flower buying. If you're not in a hurry or are a decent planner, it's worth the wait. You're not likely to find a better deal than $1-2 per rose with free shipping. Plus Cape Cod Moms readers get 15% roses!
