The White EssencesHope Fragrance is a magnificent fusion of the most aromatic white flowers - including lily of the valley, jasmine, gardenia and tubersose - the most pure and delicate essences that lift our senses. A verdant note adds a lively layer of crisp freshness.
These four iconic white flowers have a special story behind each scent.
GardeniaThe Gardenia is a very fragrant creamy-white flower, that contrasts with dark-green, glossy leaves. Historically, it has been a symbol of purity and sweetness. Gardenias are native to the tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, southern Asia, and Australia.
JasmineThe delicate jasmine flower has become very popular around the world, especially in the tropics, because of its unique intoxicating scent. Known in India as the “Queen of the Night,” its strong sweet-scented fragrance is released soon after sunset. Native to tropical and warm temperate regions, Jasmine symbolizes deep affection, happiness and elegance.
The dainty white bell-shaped buds of lily-of-the-valley are a favorite for weddings; Kate Middleton and Grace Kelly used the flower in their bridal bouquets. In France, these fragrant “muguets” are traditionally given as love tokens on May Day. The tiny flower symbolizes humility and chastity and is said to bring luck in love. It also means “the return to happiness.”
