Language of Flowers

Lovely and delightfully aromatic, flowers speak their own natural language. The romantic and chivalrous experience of Paris is greatly enhanced by the use of these treasures. In role-play, the givers of these gifts, as well as the receiver, would do well to note the powerful messages they send. One would not want to give someone they wish to court a wrong message by giving them a floral gift meaning hatred.
