The flower

A graceful woodland plant, lily of the valley has six white petals fused at the base to form a beautiful bell shape. Releasing an uplifting, fresh scent it makes an elegant perfume reminiscent of the first Spring day of the year.

The tradition

Follow the French tradition and give a sprig of lily of the valley to your loved ones on the 1st May to wish them happiness and luck.

A little hint of intrigue

Used in perfumery, soaps and many cuisines, star anise has a highly fragrant, wonderfully sweet liquorice scent. Its beautiful and rare star-shaped pods have a unique, instantly recognisable aroma.

We added star anise to the classic scent of lily of the valley for a contemporary twist.

The tradition

Follow the Chinese tradition and give a whole anise star to a bridal couple to signify spiritual unity. Its many points and flawless star-shape symbolise perfection and harmony.

Wedding bells

Lily of the valley's meaning and romantic fragrance make it a timeless bridal perfume. With a short blooming season and many clusters of the tiny bells needed to create a full posy, it's one of the most exclusive wedding flowers.

To celebrate our collaboration, The Flower Appreciation Society share their professional tips on how to create the perfect hand-tied bouquet for a wedding or a gift.
