La fête du muguet

2012 May 1

I love May. I am a May baby. I love that it’s Spring in full bloom. I love that it starts to hint at the Summer days ahead.

And did I mention I am a May baby…?

I now have a new reason to love the month of May.

In France, it kicks off on May 1 with La Fête du Muguet, where it is customary to give the ones you love a little bouquet of lily-of-the-valley for luck and to celebrate the Spring season.

How lovely is that?

Even lovelier is the fact that Guérlain, one of my favorite beauty brands, launches a limited-edition perfume each year to celebrate the holiday, only available today.

I’m sorry, what’s that you say?

You are still searching for Mother’s Day gift ideas??

You’re welcome.

    Geurlain? New perfume? PERFECT Mama’s-Day-For-Me Present! (Say the woman who still covets her mother’s Shalimar as The Perfect Perfume.)

    Oh wait. H just said we need to pay better attention to our spending. Pooh.

    No No No, why didn’t I see this until now? I love lilies of the valley. I can’t even explain. But I can’t find it online anymore!! Boo!
