A very Merry Christmas to you all, and a huge Thank You for all the support you have given us over the last few weeks.
From all of us at Scented Narcissi
The Paper White variety of Scented Narcissi is in high demand at Christmas, and here are our top 5 reasons why:
1. Classic White Flowers for Christmas
This variety of Scented Narcissi is the purest white variety of Narcissi out of all of our sixteen varieties in a Season- perfect for Christmas colour schemes, centre pieces, or Christmas Presents.
2. Iconic Fragrance
This is the Scent Descriptor our experts produced to capture the powerful scent of these Isles of Scilly flowers:
"a warm balsamic vanilla-ry base supports the creamy, almond-like soul of this bloom, crowned with a soft, jasmine-like glow"
It's no wonder the scent of narcissi can be found in perfumes by Chanel, Estee Lauder, and Vera Wang to name a few.
3. The Perfect Gift
Iconic in a simple bouquet, the addition to this wonderful offering of Christmas ribbon, tissue and handwritten card in our courier delivered Bespoke Blue Boxes makes an unforgettable gift.
4. Dreaming of a White Christmas?
For many of our customers, this is their traditional family Christmas flower, evoking memories of time gone by. Christmas just isn't Christmas without the heady fragrance of Paper Whites around the household.
5. Delicate and Dainty
The shape of these blooms is truly beautiful. With numerous dainty flowers on each stem, the soft pointed petals on these gorgeous narcissi make them instantly recognisable.
This morning we welcomed Gordon Bird of Pelistry Farm into the office with the first Sol's of the Season!
Sols are a huge favourite among our customers, who favour the grapefruit and vanilla nuances in their scent.
The bad news is, we only had the handful you see to send out- but it won't be long before one of our other farms catches up, so watch this space!
