Miasma

 

The Lily is a symbol of France, as is the Fleur de Lys logo — a symbol of both the flower and the country. MIASMA, a thick and heady melange of gorgeous-smelling but poisonous lilies, is an ode to the "Dark Queen" Catherine de Medici of France, circa mid 1500's.  This darkly bewitching perfume, based around Lily of the Valley, is comprised of poisonous florals such as this, which would have been easily within the Dark Queen's reach at the time.  The title MIASMA comes from a bloody event in history for which the queen was blamed; the participants accusing Queen Catherine of releasing a *miasma* into the air that caused a riot.  If you have any interest in religious history, I heartily encourage you to look up this fascinating tale on Wikipedia.

 

Poisonous lilies of every description...they smell sooo beautiful, but oh, so deadly...

LILY ~ Purity, modesty. Wards away evil, protects, and breaks love spells.
LILY OF THE VALLEY ~ Soothing and calming on the nerves. Sweetness, mental prowess, happiness.
