There is rose water, and there is "please dilute by a factor of 50" rose 
water.  Rose Water Concentrate.

I once had a bite of a dish that someone had made using the number of 
teaspoons (or tablespoons) mentioned in a recipe which was clearly 
intended for use with rose water, except this person had a bottle of the 
concentrated stuff.  Yep, it most definitely tasted extremely soapy.

As someone with a long exposure to rose water in food, beginning in the 
late 1960s (i didn't join the SCA until

1999), i have never found it to taste soapy... unless i was using rose 
water soap.
