Bergamot, the fruit of the bergamot tree, resembles a small green orange. Its zest is used for its smooth, piquant fragrance. It is primarily used in the perfume industry and for food flavourings, as in Earl Grey tea.
Iris was a sacred flower to the Egyptians. Its name comes from the Greek, Iridos, which means «messenger of the gods». It was the emblem of French kings, for its majesty and its power. Its powdery fragrance comes from the rhizome (root) of the plant.
The hyacinth was born of a legend inspired by Apollo, who immortalised Hyakinthos by turning him into a flower. This flower, with its suave, captivating fragrance, symbolises elegance and a carefree spirit. Wild hyacinth flourishes in Great Britain and the British Isles.
