Magnolia is an exotic flower found in of every french garden. Magnolias are not natives of Europe but of the southern states of the United States, the only French connection is that they have been named in honour of the French botanist Pierre Magnol (1638-1715).
The obvious attraction of the Magnolia grandiflora is its flowers. An even greater attraction is their perfume. The flower opens revealing the heavy stamens
The Magnolia flower is short lived and only lasts for a day. The tree will produce several blossoms at one time, replacing the faded blossoms on a daily basis and the number of flowers produced will depend on the size of the tree.
The flowers are followed by a candle-shaped seed head but they I snap off to encourage the tree to produce more flowers and avoid a waste of resources on the part of the tree. Magnolia is a very valuable ornamental tree in the garden with beautiful perfumed flowers and leaves that stay green and glossy even in the heat of summer. An addition benefit of Magnolia grandiflora is that it is evergreen and in winter it continues to ornament the garden with its glossy green leaves.
Magnolias bloom during the spring season. April - May
Magnolia is indeed an charming flower and the beauty bar has been infused with its perfumed oils. It also one of the 20 most beautiful flowers in the World.
Top Note: Raspberry
Heart Note: Egyptian Rose
Base Note: Sandalwood
The classic rose deserves the number one spot as the most beautiful flower due to its timeless beauty. An international symbol of love and romance, Roses can be found in multiple colours. From the classic red rose, to the popular Juliet garden rose, there’s a rose that can suit anyone’s taste.
Rose perfumes are made from rose oil (also called attar of roses), which is a mixture of volatile essential oils obtained by steam distilling the crushed petals of roses. Multiple species of roses can be found all around the world. Most species are native to Asia, with smaller numbers native to Europe, North America, and northwestern Africa. Species, cultivars and hybrids are all widely grown for their beauty and often are fragrant. Roses have acquired cultural significance in many societies.
Roses bloom once a year or bloom only in the spring and fall. In month of April - May and Sep - Oct
When you’re having a bad day, sometimes looking at something so beautiful like a rose is just enough to perk you up. That’s why Lux created the Hypnotic rose soap infused with the perfume oils of the Rose the Hypnotises us whenever we walk by it. “There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”
Top Note: Blackberries
Heart Note: Moroccan Iris
Base Note: Vanilla
Another popular springtime flower is the Iris. Known for its bright purple and violet flowers, these flowers symbolize wisdom, hope, and trust. The iris’ beauty has allowed them to be iconic subjects in fine art, as is evident in one of Vincent Van Gogh’s most famous paintings, Irises.
They are native the Eastern Mediterranean and their peak bloom time occurs in May.
Irises are wonderful garden plants. The word Iris means rainbow. Irises come in many colors such as blue and purple, white and yellow, pink and orange, brown and red, and even black.
The word Iris means rainbow. Iris is the flower of the Greek goddess Iris who is the messenger of Love. In the language of flowers Iris symbolizes eloquence.
A purple iris is symbolic of wisdom and compliments. I am sure by using “Iconic Iris” you will receive a lot of wisdom and compliments since the vey soap has been infused the perfumed oils of the Beautiful purple Iris Flower.
"I am sure you will enjoy using The New Lux perfumed collection as much as I loved writing about them. May is the season in which the three flowers Magnolia, Roses and Iris bloom as it is the season of spring and joy. I think its the right time to enjoy these fragrances.
My favourite among the three is Hypnotic Rose. Roses have always been my favourite.
They are easily available, you can grow them at home with little care and they have the most amazing fragrance. I love bathing with it! Please do not forget to share your stories on twitter and Instagram with #StoryOfMyLuxLife #MyFragranceExperience"
May your Season of May 2017 be filled with Joy, happiness and Lux Perfumes !!
