Bonjour, my name is Penelope. Enchanté. Would you like to know more about me?
How tall am I? 50cm
How many stems do I have? 40
What colour am I? Purple
Where do I come from?
My full name is Lavandula and I’m a member of the mint famille. My relatifs can be found across continents, from Asia to India and of course Europe, which is where I was born. The English ‘lavender’ possibly was derived from ‘lavandre’ in Old French which means to wash – this explains why people love how my scent and want so much to smell like me!
What do I look like?
I am pretty and perfectly formed. My flowers are petite and protrude in spherical positions around the pinnacle of my stem. In colour, some say blue some say purple. I say lavender – it deserves a colour all of its own! Oui?
What do I feel like?
Touching me is magnifique for two reasons. One: I am softer than I look and adore being stroked. Two: your hand will smell incredible afterwards – almost as delicious as I do.
What will I be wearing?
My black tissue négligée of course. With extra kraft paper so you can savour the experience of unwrapping me, once you’ve taken me out of my box.
