Sex, Power and a Flower

Flowers have been used for almost everything in history, but one of the grand stories is the one of the Hyacinth.  It was always popular, but made world famous at the French Court by none other than the beautiful mistress of Louis XV, Madame de Pompadour.  She was a highly educated beauty and always more than a mistress, followed by everyone in her tastes for art, fashion and of course, flowers.  Her No. 1 favorite was the highly-perfumed Dutch Hyacinth, and she was so taken with them she ordered Versailles’ vast gardens filled with them in spring, and for the rest of the year, they bloomed in every room of the palace in crystal “hyacinth glasses.”   History says she reigned supreme among Louis’ many favorites, even after she was older, due to her exquisite taste and charm…and the constant intoxication of the “royal flower’s” perfume.  Now every time your see, smell or plant a hyacinth, you’ll know you’re in good company.
