This morning we awoke to the strong fragrance of the Christmas Lily – Lilium puerense.
These white lilies came as unopened buds in a bouquet of flowers my mum received at a Christmas Banquet. Today, two buds have opened majestically … but we smelled them before we even saw them. Look how beautiful they are:The fragrance of these lilies is stronger than a lighted, scented candle. It has permeated the air and is very much appreciated. However, I wouldn’t use it in a perfume.
