Lily of the Valley (Convallaria majalis)

Some call them invasive, others decry their non-native heritage, but most everyone agrees that the flowers of the lily of the valley are some of the loveliest to be found. Their light, sweet and green scent is beloved by many.

Dior has come closet to bottling it with Diorissimo, the famous Eau de Toilette much beloved by Princess Diana and Princess Grace. And brides everywhere still choose lily of the valley for their bridal bouquets.
