Stop And Smell The Roses

"Because it triggers powerful images and emotions."

"A smell can be over- whelmingly nostalgic". writes naturalist and poet Diane Ackerman in A Natural History Of The Senses,

A Nosegay: is a small flower bouquet, and is sometimes called a tussie-mussie or a posey,

A Nosegay is small bouquet of fragrant flowers and or herbs, that have been tied in a bundle, usually given as a gift , and originally intended to be put to the nose for the pleasant sensation, or to mask unpleasant odors.

The nosegay was once considered the favored gift to give to a beloved woman. One of the most intimate moments to experience is to watch someone lean into a small nosegay and drink in the fragrance. this fragrance as well as the occasion will be forever locked in her memory , whatever the smell maybe, rather very subtle or highly intoxicating.

A tussie mussie is a small roundish shape bouquet like a nosegay, it carries a symbolic meaning that is based upon the the language of flowers, this is where certain flowers represent specific sentiments. They were most commonly exchanged by lovers, they would send messages to one another that was based upon the flowers that were being used in the bouquet. Tussie Mussies traditionally are arranged in a cone- or cornucopia-shaped container, made of tin or silver, with a chain attached for carrying as well as hanging the bouquet.

Even in the smallest of spaces, there is room for a bouquet of flowers.
