Purple roses are sent to an individual to indicate an enchantment or love at first sight. This color is also given to tell the recipient that they are irresistible, but it is not meant to indicate permanence or a seriousness in the relationship.
Roses, regardless of the color, have long been a symbol of lasting love and appreciation for someone special. Red roses are a symbol of everlasting love while pink roses signify elegance and grace or a deep admiration for that someone special. Blue roses indicate mystery and ambiguity and yellow roses are often given as a symbol of friendship.
