Lilies are beloved for their prominent trumpet-like shape and intoxicating fragrance. Lilies have a long history of being a popular bloom, going way back to the Egyptian empire and continuing through the Victorian era where they were widely considered majestic due to their splendid shape. Like so many other flowers, lilies come in a variety of different shapes, sizes and colors, including whites, yellows, oranges, pinks, reds and purples. Hybrid varieties such as Asiatic lilies have distinct spots and markings, or “freckling” with a darker color for a striking contrast.
In addition to their star-like shape, lilies are also known for their rich fragrance, especially Oriental lilies. They are the type of flowers that fill a room with their sweet scent. Many who have received our lily bouquets have commented on how wonderful their homes smell. This popular scent can also be found in many perfumes and it’s been reported that lily extract was first used to scent the body by early Egyptian women who used the extract to perfume their body oils.
Lilies are extremely versatile flowers that can be sent for many occasions. Based on their color they have different meanings — Yellow signifies gaiety; orange represents passion; and white symbolizes purity, modesty and refined beauty. White lilies are also the symbol of the Virgin Mary’s purity for faithful followers. Whether you send a bouquet of lilies for their fragrance, meaning or physical beauty, they will make a lasting impact.
