Prioritise Your Nose For The Day

We also suggest that today you should give your nose priority !

When doing something, start with your nose. Let your nose be your guide for the day.

Woman Smile Perfume Nose

Here are some ideas:

Smell your meal and enjoy its odours before you eat it.

Take in the bouquet of the wine you are about to drink.

Place your nose against the neck of your partner and inhale the aroma.

Memorise the fragrance of your children.

When you come home, open the door with your eyes closed and just take in the scent.

Relax on the sofa, close your eyes and treasure the fragrances you begin to pick up.

Try and identify as many facets as you can of your favourite fragrance.

Be creative, … and let’s see what your nose lets you get up to.

Quotes About Perfume

“No elegance is possible without perfume. It is the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory.”

Coco Chanel

“The beauty of fragrance is that it speaks to your heart…and hopefully someone else’s.”

Elizabeth Taylor

Fragrance Woman Man Kiss

“You should put scent where you like to be kissed.”

Catherine Deneuve

“A perfume is like a piece of clothing, a message, a way of presenting oneself… a costume… that differs according to the woman who wears it.”

Pablo Picasso

Women Fragrance Spray Pump

“Fragrance helps to communicate immediately a certain something that is special about a person. Women expect fragrance to match their personality and highlight it. When I think of putting on shoes, a shirt, a tie, it is to express what I am all about – I believe a fragrance should do the same thing; make you feel more yourself.”

Massimo Ferragamo

“The creation of a perfume is an act of love, whether real or imaginary. I am romantic. I couldn’t imagine living without dreams.”

Nina Ricci

Woman Man Embrace Kiss Love Perfume

“I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume.”

Jacques Guerlain

“Odours have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions or will. The persuasive power of an odour cannot be fended off, it enters into us like breath into our lungs, it fills us up, imbues us totally. There is no remedy for it.”

From “Perfume” by Patrick Suskind

A flower that is long-lasting, colourful and which is not too difficult to grow in English gardens.

Alstroemeria is ready for a renaissance !

British Flower Week – Day Four – Foliage

British Foliage

Foliage is often overlooked when big the blooms of roses and peonies dazzles us with their colour & shape. However, Florists overlook it at their peril! Foliage will always be the backbone or backdrop of any stunning bouquet, giving it a background framework, structure, movement and texture.

Foliage does not have to boring and can be selected from branches of beech, photinia, white leaf, willow, eucalyptus birch or euonymus.

‘Herbs’ can also be used to adds interest and fragrance to a bouquet through the inclusion of mint, oregano, sage, lavender or rosemary.

‘Stems’ offer another source of inspiration to the florist and these are some examples: cow parsley, breezy grasses and stems of trailing jasmine.

British Astrantia

The two common names for the British Astrantia are ‘Hattie’s pincushion’ and ‘masterwort’. This begs the question “who was Hattie ?” and “how did Astrantias get into her pincushions ?”

Here are two links to the British Flowers Week website and the posts about Astrantia.

British Flower Week – Day One – Oriental Lily

British Flower Week

The British Oriental Lily

Today marks the start of British Flower Week! A time to celebrate the nation’s flower industry and all the British flowers we love. Day One marks the celebration of the Oriental Lily.

Pairfum reed diffuser white oriental lilly

At present, the vast majority of flowers bought on our high-streets are from large-scale commercial growers abroad.

New Covent Garden Flower Market, launched the campaign to highlight British flowers instead.

Pairfum reed diffuser british flower week roses

This annual celebration of seasonal, locally-grown flowers and foliage is uniting the UK’s flower industry and to sparking interest in where our flowers come from.

During the week the focus will be on the best of British cut flowers and the very best independent British florists to show just what British flowers are made of!

Pairfum reed diffuser british flower week necklace

Right now, British cut flowers are enjoying a resurgence in demand. Just as interest in locally-grown food has grown, people’s interest is resurgent in locally-grown, freshly cut flowers.

Up until the 1970s, the only flowers you would ever see in the Flower Markets and nurseries came from flower farmers across Britain. Today, the vast majority of flowers in your high street flower shop will have been grown by large scale commercial growers in Holland, South America and Africa and routed through the Dutch auctions.

Flowers Should Be Fragrant !

Here at PAIRFUM, we fully support the British Flower Industry, as we believe in locally produced goods.

Equally, as perfumers we continuously regret seeing flowers being grown for the beauty at the expense of their fragrance.

Lillies are a prime example of how wonderfully scented a floral bouquet can be.
