When you get right down to it, it’s not just that flowers look beautiful. It’s not the dizzying array of colors, the delicate, almost pointillist layers of petals. It’s not just that they unfurl overtime or look amazing next to each other, no. Here at Curran’s Flowers, we believe that flowers enchant us because they make a strong appeal to all of the senses, including the olfactory one. When you bring them into your home or workspace, flowers act as a living reminder of what awaits outside. They can smell simply fresh or perfume the air with a particular scent. They feel good to the touch—soft but substantial. Flowers are a whole experience.
Dutch Hyacinth is one of the most intriguing flowers that spring provides. They’re so gorgeous that designing with them becomes less about overworking them and more about simplicity and restraint. These, cultivated in Holland, are graceful in a vase, where their subtle hues and a bright pop of green can best be admired. This is an alluring piece, but it’s also a very fragrant one. Hyacinth is known for an enticing scent, which will put you in mind of a blossoming spring garden immediately.
When you’re thinking about what to bring into your home or workspace to truly embrace the season, consider those flowers that will appeal to all of your senses. Your mind and body will thank you.
