Language of Flower

Romans honoured their heroes with laurel wreaths and Greek mythology tells how many of the flowers were created. In Hamlet Ophelia recites the meanings of herbs and flowers, for William Shakespeare was well conversant with their significance, but it was Victorians who turned flower-giving into an art.

Now you too, in times of distance and absence, can send messages with the use of florals from our fragrance collection..
