In the early 1500s, perfumers enjoyed a high status in Venetian society. It became a status symbol to have a signature fragrance created for you by one of these artists and both royalty and nobility regularly visited perfumers’ labs to consult on one-of-a-kind scents to be worn at balls, parties and state occasions. One tradition was to include a note of your birth flower in your custom scent. If your bloom didn’t have a natural scent, the perfumer would blend several essential oils to create a note that reflected your birth flower. Do you know what you birth month flower is? Here is the list:

Born in April, my flower was always the ‘sweet pea’ and now it’s the daisy. Interesting! Not the most enticing scents.

I’m a water flower and what a gorgeous bloom. I’m sure in the deep tropics the water flower has a beautiful aroma to them. So many of our flowers have been breed not to have a smell. Nothing beats the scent of a fresh picked carnation or Lily of the Valley. We have to remember if our flowers don’t have a scent to them this is where your favourite perfume can enhance their smell. Happy Valentine’s Day 💘💘💘

my flower is morning glory which was a surprise. I was not aware it had any fragrance.

October babies have got two standout blossoms connected to them: the colourful cosmos and glorious marigold. I am an October baby. 🙂

Looks like my flower is the water lily. I don’t think Ive ever smelled one. This was interesting I thought mine would be a rose @daniela27

Do gladioli have a scent? They are lovely but I don’t remember them having a specific aroma. Perhaps it’s an accord?

Carnations! I knew this and while they last a long time and sometimes have a lovely spicy scent, I love other months flowers more. May Lilly-of-valley wins hands down! Great read, Thank you beautiful people & Happy Valentine’s Day xx
