Fragrance of The Lilium puerense

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:Christmas LilyThe 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.
