The lily

The fleur-de-lys, a symbolic emblem with a rich historical heritage, embodies royalty and purity. Recognisable by its elegant silhouette and distinctive three petals, the fleur-de-lis is often associated with nobility and power. Originating in Antiquity, it has been adopted by many civilisations and has become a universal symbol of greatness. The fleur-de-lys is also found in the language of flowers, where it evokes majesty, grace and honour. Beyond its historical importance, this delicate flower continues to fascinate with its timeless beauty and profound symbolic meaning, making it a floral icon that transcends the ages.

The scent of the fleur de lys is imbued with a subtle, bewitching elegance. The flower's delicate fragrance is both suave and refined, capturing the very essence of its natural grace. The floral notes emanate intoxicatingly, offering a harmonious blend of sweetness and sophistication. Often described as slightly sweet and floral, the scent of the fleur de lys evokes a majestic and captivating aura. Whether in a flower garden or in a bouquet, this delicate fragrance leaves a memorable impression, evoking the timeless elegance and incomparable beauty of the fleur de lys. Its subtle fragrance has the power to charm the senses and create an atmosphere of grace and softness.

The seasonality of lily flowers is often associated with spring and summer. These majestic flowers usually begin to bloom in spring, reaching their peak of flowering during the warmer summer months. Lilies are often grown as perennials, which means they can return year after year, offering their floral splendour during the growing season. However, specific varieties of lily may have slightly different flowering periods depending on their species and local climatic conditions.

It's important to note that some varieties of lily, such as the Madonna lily or the autumn lily, can also flower in late summer or autumn. So the seasonality of lily flowers can vary depending on the variety chosen, offering a diversity of colours and shapes throughout the growing season. Gardeners often plan to plant lilies to take advantage of their brilliant blooms during the warmer months, adding a touch of grace and sophistication to their summer gardens.

To preserve the heady fragrance of the flowers in a bouquet, it's crucial to keep them fresh. Change the water in the vase every day to avoid the proliferation of bacteria, which could shorten the life of the flowers. Trim the stems at an angle each time you change the water, to help them absorb water better and stay optimally hydrated. You should also avoid placing your bouquet in direct sunlight or near heat sources, as these elements can accelerate the wilting of the flowers and reduce their fragrance. 

Absolutely, you can order bouquets of flowers from our Bouvard Fleurs website, with guaranteed fast delivery. Our platform offers a wide selection of floral arrangements, allowing you to choose from different species and arrangements and get the perfect bouquet for your occasion.
