My dear Lily of the valley

Lily of the valley or Convallaria majalis is a delicate little thing that announces the beginning of summer with its sweet fragrance. Innocent and pure in looks, poisonous by nature.

The alluring fragrance is why I wanted to include lily of the valley in this project – only to find out the scent to be so difficult to extract, that it is produced using synthetic ingredients to replicate the smell of lily of the valley in products. All the more reason to go wander in the woods come spring!
