Comments Off on Are You in Love with Florals?

written by Raulla S. Mitchell

If you’ve always loved florals, this is your season. You instinctively understand why florals are traditionally regarded as the most cherished romantic fragrances.  And, is there anything that celebrates the feminine essence more than florals when you’re thinking of special Mother’s Day gifts for the women in your lives, and maybe that includes you?  Florals elegantly express your love for the woman who gives you so much everyday and will be in your heart always.

“She cast her fragrance and radiance over me.”

from ”Le Petit Prince”, Antoine de Saint-Exupery 

The little prince’s delicate rose in Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s universally beloved poetic tale becomes the most cherished flower, unique from all  other flowers, and all other roses in a world populated with flowers, in virtue of the little prince’s loving care which renders her the only rose in the universe belonging to him alone.  Her charming self-indulgence and intoxicatingly elegant fragrance is synonymous with love, romance, desire and memory.

As the little prince begins to care for his sensitive rose’s every need to ensure her survival, he cannot help himself from falling in love with her. She depends upon him and she feeds his soul with her beauty.  The rose and the prince belong to each other in a way that no other prince and no other rose could. Their love makes them unique in all the world.  I share this story with my daughter, and I will love it with all my heart even when I am very very old, because true beauty perceives not age.
