Magnificent Magnolias Blooming in Windsor Great Park!

Perfumery Magnificent Magnolias Windsor Park

Magnificent Magnolias blooming in Great Windsor Park in Spring offer a spectacular sight.

The Valley Gardens, together with The Savill Garden, provide a home to a National Collection of Magnolia trees. Here are some examples:

  • On leaving the Savill building, visitors are welcomed to a fantastic show by a mature Magnolia loebneri ‘Merrill’, covered in ice-white flowers.
  • In a far corner of the garden, close to the summer house, is a Magnolia sprengeri ‘Eric Savill’, with large, bold pink flowers.
  • The Valley Gardens features a glorious collection of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias and magnolias, best viewed in the spring from the top of the valley, with views down to Virginia Water.

About Magnolia

The magnolia family can count approx 200 species mainly found in two regions:

  • Asia, and
  • the Americas.

The Magnolia tree was named after Pierre Magnol, the French botanist behind the current nomenclature of botanical classification.

Magnificent Magnolias are significant flowers in Chinese and Japanese culture, and has been cultivated for centuries.

The ‘Magnolia Virginiana’ species (from Virginia) was the first Magnolia to be introduced into Europe. In 1687, it was sent across John Banister, an English missionary and naturalist, to Henry Compton, English bishop and a passionate gardener.

Shortly afterwards, Europe was introduced to Chinese Magnolias (Magnolia Denudata and Liliflora).

In the middle of the nineteenth century, the beautiful Star Magnolia (Stellata) from Japan was planted in Europe.

The “queen of Magnolias”, the pink Magnolia Campbellii from the Himalaya, was discovered at the beginning of the last century.

It is believed that Magnolia is one of the oldest plants, the Dinosaurs probably saw Magnolias blooming.

Magnificent Magnolias Windsor Park Fragrance Ingredient

Magnificent Magnolias in Perfumery

Magnolia flowers (Magnolia Grandiflora) frequently have a fragrance. Their perfume is fresh, floral and creamy sweet with hints of waxy citrus.

Magnolia is a popular ingredient in floral perfume accords and there have been notable fragrances where Magnolia is the main floral ingredient.

Here are some of these fragrances that focus on Magnolia and its various olfactive facettes:

  • Magnolia Rosae (Lancome, Female, 2019): Magnolia, Rose, Musk
  • Spendia Magnolia Sensuel (Bulgari, Female, 2018): Magnolia, Orange Blossom & Jasmine, Tangerine, Musk
  • Song of America Magnolia (Ralph Lauren, Unisex, 2016): Floral Chypre with Magnolia, Lemon, Patchouli
  • Magnolia Nobile (Acqua die Parma, Female, 2009): Magnolia, Lemon, Jasmin, Bergamot, Vetiver
  • Eau de Fleur de Magnolia (Kenzo, Female, 2008): Magnolia, Citrus
  • Miracle (Lancome, Female, 2000): Oriental, Magnolia, Litchi, Pepper, Musk
  • Magnolia (Yves Rocher, Female, 1983): Magnolia, Lily, Gardenia, Tuberose, Jasmin, Oakmoss
  • Magnolia (Yardley, Female, 1970): Magnolia, Hyacinth, Lily

When reviewing these notes, you will notice one commonality in that they interpret the freshness of Magnolia in different ways: some use the freshness of white flowers, others incorporate citrus and again others use fruity nuances.

Here at Pairfum London we have built our fragrance “Magnlias in Bloom” around the white flowers of Magnolia, Lily and Geranium with the sweet freshness typical of Magnolia Grandiflora coming from the more modern notes of ozone and watermelon, rather than citrus. “Magnolias in Bloom” is available in our online boutique in many different Home Fragrance products (candles, diffusers, sprays, …).
