  • The common bluebell is a true sign of British springtime. There is something quite ethereal about a sea of bluebells covering woodlands in a haze of purpley blue. This spectacular botannical display is only found in northern Europe, with Britain containing more than half of the world’s population.

    In 1850, Emily Bronte described how:

    ‘‘The Bluebell is the sweetest flower
    That waves in summer air:
    Its blossoms have the mightiest power
    To soothe my spirit’s care.’

    In the Victorian art of floriography, the bluebell represented humility and constancy. The presence of  a bluebell in a floral bouquet would have symbolised one’s unwavering devotion to their love, through the means of this coded message.

    Floriography of Bluebells

    Our cult scent, Bluebell was originally created in 1978 and is the pure unadulterated distillation of the scent of bluebell woods. Complex and utterly distinctive, Bluebell is a soliflore scent, evocative of wet earth, moss and rain; it softly detonates across your scent receptors.  Close your eyes….imagine you are standing in a bluebell wood, dappled in bright spring sunshine, a light breeze dancing through the leaves. Inhale… has just rained… a spring shower. All around you, soft sounds, a sudden overwhelming scent, green and mossy: a carpet of bluebells, rain in the air, loamy wet bark, damp grass and floral notes.

    • Anniversary Gift To A Beloved Wife
    • by Anaïs
    • If we look at this bouquet, we only find two colours: green (hope, serenity, equilibrium), which remains both in the Orchids flowers and in the decoration, and the red (Red Carnation), that is the symbol of the love and the passion. Obviously the one that has prepared this bouquet is seeking balance, which can be seen in the elegant way the flowers are placed. The Red Carnations mean fascination or distinction and the Orchids, as they´re green, express great affection for someone, what gives this bouquet a message of respectful devotion. The elegance and equilibrium of this bouquet expresses serenity and wisdom, features of a mature person, so I think this is a gift from a husband to his wife, to whom he has been married for many years. The flowers are obviously saying "I love you", but far from the impatient love of the youth, they´re expressing a long lasting love, a deep and tender one, so probably this bouquet it´s an Anniversary gift

    • A gift of green orchids symbolizes an opulent, delicate and rare love full of vitality, luxury and joy. The addition of deep red carnations demonstrates a love deep and lasting. The green leaves speak to the purity, dignity and nobility of the relationship.
