George Sand: (1804 – 1876)
A woman known for her scandalous love life. Nohant, peaceful haven and a magnet for society life, where Liszt, Balzac, Flaubert, Delacroix and Victor Hugo would all be seen.
A charming little flower used in the past as a cure for melancholy... Violet is a symbol for secret love. In high fashion during the Second French Empire, its fragrance is evocative of suave, captivating scents.
It was named 1866 by the botanist Ecklon after the German Dr. Freese. Its heady fragrance is similar to that of jasmine.
Rose fragrances are full of secrets. No other flower has been lauded as much for its fragrance, and this since ancient times. It has been cultivated for more than 5000 years. This highly literary flower has been present in every epoch. From the Roman de la Rose in the Middle Ages, to the poems Pierre de Ronsard in the 15th century, to Corneille, Goethe, Perrault, and Hugo; all these writers evoked the flower's poetry.
