The Language Of Flowers:
A Treasury of Verse and Prose Scented
by Penhaligon's Sheila Pickles

The Victorians turned flower giving into an art, and Sheila Pickles's The Language of Flowers explores the meanings and significance ascribed to certain flowers.

Penhaligon's Violetta perfume scents the book, and violets are one of the more than twenty such English flowers whose my myths and legends are explored and their subtle language revealed.

Favorite poems and prose selections by classic authors illustrate these themes and are accompanied by richly decorative, floral paintings. This treasury makes the perfect gift for occasions when something more lasting than flowers is appropriate.

The Language of Flowers would also be a great companion read for anyone reading Random Magic. There are several places in Random Magic where knowledge about the language of flowers would help in discovering secret messages in a particular scene; secret messages hidden in plain sight...


A Treasury of Verse and Prose Scented
by Penhaligon's Sheila Pickles

The author gathers favorite literary reflections on this timeless theme - from the childhood loves of Dickens to the tempestuous passions of Lord Byron - and includes classic amorous paintings from Renaissance and 19th-century masters. The book is scented with Penhaligon's perfume, Elizabethan Rose.

Apart from being a wild adventure, Random Magic is also meditation on and celebration of the arts, creativity, passion, legends, love, and the love of beauty.

This book (Love) suits the celebration of love in Random Magic: Vive L'Amour wonderfully, and would make a sweet complementary read for anyone enjoying Random Magic - or just a lovely bit of luxury to be enjoyed slowly, alongside a nice cup of tea or coffee, on a chilly day.
