With its gently nodding little white bells of blossoms, the Lily of the Valley is one of the prettiest flowers around – a symbol not only of spring but of peace, love and good luck for the year ahead in many European cultures. (Indeed, on the first of May in France it’s a dearly-held tradition to offer a little sprig to those you most cherish – a custom we embrace at The Perfume Society.)
A charming bouquet that always makes us think of traditional English picnics in the woods, here Yardley entwines the heritage of their name and these delicate yet powerfully-fragrant flowers with a surprising note of juicy pear to add a modern twist on a traditional theme, in the new Contemporary Classics collection.
Freesia and musk add a further layer of richness to this fragrant little posy – presented to you with our love in this cute-as-a-button quartet of vials in the Beautiful Blossoms Discovery Box…
