  • 지우  Throughout the ages, there has been a perennial fondness for the diminutive violet. According to botanical lore, the violet was nicknamed the "Flower of Modesty" because it hides its delicate petals close to the ground beneath the heart-shaped leaves. In ancient Greek mythology, the flower symbolized the modesty of Artemis and the loyalty of her companions. The violet was often used in religious art to signify humility and purity. The violet is said to have blossomed when the archangel Gabriel announced to Mary that she would bear the son of God.

  • 41. TUBEROSE
    Polianthes tuberosa

    Symbolism: Dangerous Pleasure
    "The secret of reaping the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment from life is to live dangerously."
    - Friedrich Nietzsche -

    When the tuberose was first brought to Europe from south America and Asia in the 17th century, its name caused considerable confusion, though it simply means a "flower that grows from a tuber, or bulb." The exotic tuberose caused an even bigger stir for its provocative fragrance and its voluptuous appearance that was considered ostentatious.

  • 지우  Marie Antoinette commanded her perfumers to create an alluring scent from the flower exclusively for her. In 19th century Russia, the flower was forbidden to anyone outside of the Imperial Court. In Malaysia the tuberose is known as "the mistress of the night".

    Inspirational Message: There are times to be restrained and there are moments when your wild, sensual side yearns to be expressed. If you never take risks and allow yourself a few "dangerous pleasures" you will never discover your own true colors.
