What is the Fragrance of Snowdrops?

Perfume Snowdrop Light Green Fresh Sun Spring

The Fragrance of Snowdrops

A flower with a fresh, green floral perfume note. The fragrance of snowdrops is not particularly strong.

In perfumery, the essence of Snowdrop adds a freshness and coolness to a fragrance accord or scent.

Spring Is On Its Way!

Snowdrops (Galanthus) are hailed as symbol of spring with their tiny white blossoms. Typically, they are the first flowers and already appear during Winter, sticking their small heads through snow, which is surprising considering their fragile, white bell shaped flower.

These flowers evoke the first feelings of new life and indicate that spring is arriving shortly. Snowdrops are optimistic, funny and have a certain careless nature.

For a welcome assurance that the brighter days of spring are on their way, look no further than snowdrops.

About the Bulb

Snowdrops are surprisingly varied in height, flower size, shape and even colouring, with new species continuously being discovered. When planted in a moist soil they will multiply into drifts, like flowering carpets, with plenty of plants, sufficient even for cut flowers to arrange in vase to bring a sense of spring indoors.

Snowdrops are perennial flowering plants (bulbs) native to large parts of Europe. Found mainly in woodlands, parks, churchyards and gardens.

Their early flowering, is aided by hardened leaf tips that can push through frozen soil and snow. With pollinating insects scarce in winter, snow drops spread mainly through bulb division.

History & Legend

The latin name Galanthus means ‘milky flower ( from the Greek gála “milk” and ánthos “flower”) is a species of bulbous perennial herbaceous plants from the family Amaryllidaceae.

The plant has two linear leaves and a single small white drooping bell shaped flower with six petal-like (petaloid) tepals in two circles (whorls). The smaller inner petals have green markings.

Snowdrops have been known since the earliest times under various names but were named Galanthus in 1753.

There is a legend, that when you listen closely, you can hear their bells ringing, trying to wake up nature from its winter sleep.

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.

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.

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!

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.
