Lily of the Valley

James Andrew Lily of the Valley

French tradition has it that one simply must offer a sprig of Lily-of-the-Valley (muguet) to a loved one on May Day for good luck and happy wishes.

Of course one needn’t limit one’s enjoyment to a single day! I generally can’t get enough of its uplifting fragrance, and enjoy Lily-of-the-Valley in one form or another throughout the year. A perfect way to ensure a steady infusion of this beloved fragrance is through the esteemed Caswell-Massey Classics triple milled floral soaps. During its 258 year history, CM has been a longstanding favorite amongst America’s elite (they cite President Washington, George Gershwin, Greta Garbo, and John F. Kennedy as examples), and rightfully so. In a word, the product is simply superb. Why not give a box to a loved one during these last days of May? And do buy a box for yourself as well to keep you, your clothes drawers, and your guests, smelling heavenly.
