Lily-of-the-valley is the eternal arrival of joy. Every year, halfway between the start of spring and the summer – on 1st May, or Labour Day –, the French exchange gifts of lily-of-the-valley. The tradition honours the legend that, way back in the 16th century, Marie de Medici was given a sumptuous bouquet of these same flowers by her son, King Charles IX, in order to bring her good luck.
This powdery bouquet arouses a feeling of nostalgia for a unique and ephemeral moment; as though the delicate white bells of the lily-of-the-valley were ringing out to announce the arrival of good news.

A wild and tropical flower, the gardenia has become as a fixture in the gardens of Western Europe thanks to the indefinable elegance of its white flowers and its heavenly scent.
The rose is the most widely grown flower in the world, leading to a certain ambiguity in the symbolism that surrounds it.
As well as being present in Greek mythology and biblical scripture, the fleur-de-lis became closely associated with the Kings of France...
