Lilac, Demeter Naturals
After a citrus start with touches of pear and grape, the Lilac heart is supported with rose, lavender and the cleanest white petals, finished with soft, smooth woods. Demeter Naturals Lilac was inspired by a verse from Walt Whitman, that has little to do with flowers.
When Lilacs Last in the Door-yard Bloom’d
By Walt Whitman
In the door-yard fronting an old farm-house,
near the white-wash’d palings,
Stands the lilac bush, tall-growing,
with heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
With many a pointed blossom, rising, delicate,
with the perfume strong I love,
With every leaf a miracle... and
from this bush in the door-yard,
With delicate-color’d blossoms,
and heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
A sprig, with its flower, I break.
