Lily of the Valley: A Spring Offering

Today is May 1st, which for the majority of us means spring is in full swing and summer is on the horizon. In France however, May 1st also means Labor Day and the French like to celebrate with a tradition that dates all the way back to the 16th Century. To celebrate the new season the French offer small sprigs of muguet or Lily of the Valley to their loved ones as a "good luck charm". Unfortunately, we don't have any Lily of the Valley to give out on this particular day, however we thought we would celebrate this wonderful French tradition with some of our favorite floral gifts. With our Santa Maria Novella "Lily of the Valley" cologne, White Flower soaps and candles, and Violette perfume to add to your "offering", you can rest assured your loved ones will be especially happy on this May 1st celebration!

Available at The Paris Market.
