Mother’s Day Celebrate.  Mother’s Day is always celebrated on the second Sunday in May. It’s not a federal holiday, however it’s widely celebrated as a special day to honor all mothers and motherhood. Together, let’s honor the women who raised us—and all the mothers who sacrificed for their children.

Mother’s Day History

While the Mother’s Day that we celebrate on the second Sunday in May is a fairly recent development, the basic idea goes back to ancient mythology—to the long ago civilizations of the Greeks and Romans.The Greeks paid annual homage to Cybele, the mother figure of their gods, and the Romans dedicated an annual spring festival to the mother of their gods.


Mothering Sunday 
In 16th century England a celebration called “Mothering Sunday” was inaugurated—a Sunday set aside for visiting one’s mother. The eldest son or daughter would bring a “mothering cake,” which would be cut and shared by the entire family. Family reunions were the order of the day, with sons and daughters assuming all household duties and preparing a special dinner in honor of their mother. Sometime during the day the mother would attend special church services with her family.


Julia Ward Howe
Here in America, in 1872, Julia Ward Howe, a famous poet and pacifist who fought for abolition and women’s rights, suggested that June 2 be set aside to honor mothers in the name of world peace. This happened not long after the bloody Franco-Prussian War after which Howe began to think of a global appeal to women.
The idea died a quick death. Nothing new happened in this department until 1907, when a Miss Anna M. Jarvis, of Philadelphia, took up the banner.


Anna M. Jarvis
After her mother died in 1905, Miss Anna Jarvis wished to memorialize her life and started campaigning for a national day to honor all mothers.
Her mother, known as “Mother Jarvis,” was a young Appalachian homemaker and lifelong activist who had organized “Mother’s Work Days” to save the lives of those dying from polluted water. During the Civil War, Mother Jarvis had also organized women’s brigades, encouraging women to help without regard for which side their men had chosen.  At the time, there were many special days for men, but none for women.
On May 10, 1908, a Mother’s Day service was held at a church in Grafton, West Virginia, where Anna’s mother had taught. Thus was born the idea that the second Sunday in May be set aside to honor all mothers, dead or alive.
Anna Jarvis, bombarded public figures and various civic organizations with telegrams, letters, and in-person discussions. She addressed groups large and small. At her own expense, she wrote, printed, and distributed booklets extolling her idea.
Her efforts came to the attention of the mayor of Philadelphia, who proclaimed a local Mother’s Day. From the local level she went on to Washington, D.C. The politicians there knew a good thing when they saw it and were quick to lend verbal support.
West Virginia was the first state to officially adopt the holiday, and others followed suit. Proclamation of the day by the various states led Representative J. Thomas Heflin of Alabama and Senator Morris Sheppard of Texas to present a joint resolution to Congress that Mother’s Day be observed nation-wide. The resolution was passed by both houses.

Mother’s Day Today
In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a bill designating the second Sunday in May as a legal holiday to be called “Mother’s Day”—dedicated “to the best mother in the world, your mother.”
For the first few years, the day was observed as a legal holiday, but in absolute simplicity and reverence—church services were held in honor of all mothers, living and dead.
In many ways family observance much resembled that of the British version of “Mothering Sunday.”

 
Mother’s Day Gift Idea

For Mother’s Day, many children send greeting cards or make a special effort to visit their mothers. 
Of course, flowers or a planted container are a classic gift. Perhaps the most historically-significant flower is the white carnation, which was the symbol that Mother’s Day founder, Anna Jarvis, valued.
With their exotic and majestic appearance, orchids symbolize love, refinement, and beauty. The orchid is also a Chinese symbol for “many children.”
Lilies are also popular. The day lily is the Chinese symbol of motherhood. 
Purple irises are also a special choice for mothers, symbolizing faith and hope.

Mother's day celebrate with a poem. by Fleur Parfumerie

 Mother’s day celebrate with a poem!

As the following poem: 
Mother,
If i could give you diamonds
For each tear you’ve cried;
If iI could give you Sapphires for each truth
You’ve helped me see; If I could give you rubies
For the heartache that you’ve known,
If I could give you pearls for the wisdom 
That you’ve shown.
 
Then you’d have a treasure;
Mother, that would mount up to the skies;
That would almost match the sparkle
In your kind and loving eyes.
But I have no pearls or diamonds, 
As I’m sure you’re well aware,
So I’ll give you gifts more precious’;
My devotion, love and care.
 
To my lovely mom

Valentine’s Day fine present for fine day. Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate romance and love and kissy-face fealty. But the origins of this festival of candy and cupids are actually dark, bloody — and a bit muddled.

“The beauty of fragrance is that it speaks to your heart… and hopefully someone else’s.”

Elisabeth Taylor

Valentine's Day fine present for fine day

Though no one has pinpointed the exact origin of the holiday, one good place to start is ancient Rome, where men hit on women by, well, hitting them.

Those Wild And Crazy Romans

From Feb. 13 to 15, the Romans celebrated the feast of Lupercalia. The men sacrificed a goat and a dog, then whipped women with the hides of the animals they had just slain.

The Roman romantics “were drunk. They were naked,” says Noel Lenski, a historian at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Young women would actually line up for the men to hit them, Lenski says. They believed this would make them fertile.

The brutal fete included a matchmaking lottery, in which young men drew the names of women from a jar. The couple would then be, um, coupled up for the duration of the festival — or longer, if the match was right.

The ancient Romans may also be responsible for the name of our modern day of love. Emperor Claudius II executed two men — both named Valentine — on Feb. 14 of different years in the 3rd century A.D. Their martyrdom was honored by the Catholic Church with the celebration of St. Valentine’s Day.

Later, Pope Gelasius I muddled things in the 5th century by combining St. Valentine’s Day with Lupercalia to expel the pagan rituals. But the festival was more of a theatrical interpretation of what it had once been. Lenski adds, “It was a little more of a drunken revel, but the Christians put clothes back on it. That didn’t stop it from being a day of fertility and love.”

RU/ENG  В подмосковье сегодня дожди, а кое-где даже шел первый снег. Холодов не хочется совсем, поэтому сегодня я вас познакомлю с ароматом  Fleur LA VIE DENSE @fleur_parfumerie , который приехал ко мне  из самого сердца Греции, из древних Афин, где средняя температура сейчас +22 градуса. И он такой же солнечный,  теплый, беззаботный и радостный.  Восточно-цветочный, с первых нот он ярко заявляет о себе,  сладковато-приторный и знойный. Есть тип таких людей, они яркие, открытые, легкие, немного наивные, и в их обществе всегда приятно. В начале, они заполняют собой все пространство, а, потом, с ними становится тепло, и по-дружески уютно. С ними всегда можно присесть в уютном уголке, за чашкой ароматного чая и поделиться своими секретами. Точно зная, что все сказанное, останется тут, между нами, потому что этих людей отличает не только открытость, но и благородство. LA VIE DENSE такой же, первые ноты затихают, и он становится  спокойным, цветочным, открытым и непременно доброжелательным и улыбчивым.  После знакомства с ним, мне еще больше захотелось отправиться в солнечную Грецию, туда где круглый год тепло и солнечно)  Верхние ноты: апельсин, бергамот, груша, бутоны смородины, розовый перец Средние ноты: Ирис , апельсиновый цвет, тубероза, арабский жасмин Базовые ноты: фундук и взбитые сливки ENG ???

Mir_no: “In the suburbs today it rains, and somewhere even passed the first snow. I do not want colds at all, so today I will introduce you to the fragrance Fleur LA VIE DENSE  @fleur_parfumerie, which came to me from the very heart of Greece, from ancient Athens, where the average temperature is now +22 degrees. And the fragrance in the bottle is as sunny, warm, carefree and joyful. East-floral, from the first notes it brightly declares itself, sweetish-sugary and sultry. 
There is a type of such people, they are bright, open, light, a bit naive, and in their society it is always pleasant. In the beginning, they fill the whole space, and, then, with them becomes warm, and in a friendly way cozy. With them, you can always sit in a cozy corner, with a cup of fragrant tea and share your secrets. Knowing precisely that everything that has been said will remain here, between us, because these people are distinguished not only by openness, but also by nobility.

After meeting him, I even wanted to go to sunny Greece, where it’s warm and sunny all year round) • Top notes: orange, bergamot, pear, currant buds, pink pepper • Medium notes: Iris, orange blossom, tuberose, Arabic jasmine • Base notes: hazelnut and whipped cream. “

The weather is slowing down and we stubbornly refuse to accept it. We continue to recall the beautiful moments we spent watching pictures, chatting with friends about summer adventures, making mini escapes and yes … still wearing our summer fragrance with playful, fruity and floral notes. But time does not stop and forces us to adapt our aromatic preferences.

One of the reasons why this is imperative is that in the autumn, when the temperature drops, the light notes of summer fragrances lose their intensity and should therefore be replaced by some heavier and delectable perfumes.

In autumn fragrances we should be more sparing about the amount we spray on us. The reason is that the fragrances become more intense with the body’s heat and are ejected under the clothes. So when we remove our coat or scarf, they are released in the air around us and if we apply more of what they need, they will become very intense.

If you are one of the people who are “stuck” with a perfume and who wear it all the time, day or night, autumn is the ideal time to experiment with new autumn fragrances with more rich notes. The changing of season means new perfumes to compliment the cooler weather. Explore our site and find out your perfume for this season!

Γεια σας Glamorous,

Το χρησιμοποιούμε για να γοητεύσουμε, να βελτιώσουμε τη διάθεσή μας, να αυτοσυγκεντρωθούμε, να αυξήσουμε την αυτοπεποίθησή μας, να αναζωογονηθούμε. Τα αρώματα δεν μας κάνουν μόνο να νιώθουμε ωραία στις διάφορες στιγμές μας, δείχνουν ακόμα και κάτι από την προσωπικότητα μας. Μια ορισμένη μυρωδιά μπορεί να μας καθορίσει και πάνω απ’ όλα να κάνει τους άλλους να μας θυμούνται και να μας αναγνωρίζουν. Τίποτα και κανείς δεν μπορεί να ξεκλειδώσει τις αναμνήσεις μας με τον τρόπο που μπορεί να το κάνει ένα άρωμα.

Είναι ξεκάθαρο ότι η όσφρηση είναι από τις πιο αδικημένες μεταξύ των αισθήσεων. Κι όμως, δοκιμάστε να φανταστείτε έναν κόσμο χωρίς μυρωδιές. Θα είναι ένας κόσμος…

Not only sunscreen and sunglasses, but a good perfume is also essential in summer to beat the heat. However, when it comes to the sun and perfume, there are some things that you really need to be aware of. Here is how to wear perfume in the warmer months…

  • Don’t wear perfume on your skin

The first thing that you need to know is that you don’t want to wear perfume on your skin in the warmer months, especially on the exposed skin. Perfumes contain alcohol which is extremely photosensitive in nature. When you apply perfume to your exposed skin, it might result in developing dark patches on the skin which will look like ‘bunch of leopard spots’ on the skin.

  • Fabrics and hair holds scent wonderfully

Do you know that our freshly washed hair is a great perfume carrier? After washing your hair in the morning, apply your favorite perfume to the ends of your hair while it is still wet. This way, when you move your hair around, the scents will be released into the air.

Also, after getting dressed in your favorite outfit, spritz some of your favorite perfume in your cleavage. Be sure you spray it down deep enough so the perfume is not exposed to the sun.

  • Perfumes suitable for summer

For summer, choose something fresh and natural. The best perfume notes for summer would be citrus, fruity, aquatic, woody or light floral notes.

  • Apply body products

Invest in a couple of bath and body products of your favorite perfume which will stay as a layer on the skin. Start with a body wash, then follow up with a body lotion and finally a light spray of your perfume.

Have you ever wondered which information cosmetic products must include? Otherwise how can you be sure that you use them safely?

Let’s see what any cosmetic product must have on the label or on the packaging in order to comply with the EU Cosmetics Regulation…

  • First of all, the name and the address of the company
  • An ingredients list, in decreasing order of weight of the ingredients. This is mainly for people who have been diagnosed with an allergy so that they may avoid ingredients to which they are allergic.
  • The nominal net.

Fragrance is linked with music… Perfume has notes and chords, just like music does! Perfume has top, middle and base stages and so does music (verse, bridge and chorus). You need to ensure the composition is right for both music and perfume for it to blend beautifully to our senses.

Depending on the music genre you like, also has a lot to do with the type of fragrance you will like. For example,

As Father’s Day approaching, we would like to dedicate this post to all the wonderful fathers. Thank you for all that you do. Thank you for being you. We appreciate your existence and the often times silent but impactful role you have played in our lives.

Whatever gratitude and love we have for them does not get received if we don’t express them in the first place. Show your dad some love today, tomorrow, and every day. Give him a card… Take him out for dinner… Buy him a perfume… Give him a hug…

The most important before buying your ideal perfume, is to understand what type of skin you have. Is it dry or oily? Normal or mixed?

  • If you have oily or mixed skin, then what you need to know is that the perfumes which are based to citrus are the best choice.

These ingredients help to balance the particular and possible flavor from your body. Prefer summer perfumes that smell like lend a feeling of cleanliness.

  • If your skin is dry or sensitive,  perfume may not remain so upon you as if you have oily skin. The solution, of course, is not sprayed ten times, but to choose a more “heavy” perfume, that is based on musk. In this way it will last longer in your skin.

It is a reality that before leaving home you never forget to wear your perfume. It offers you a personal pleasure and beautiful smell around. However, without knowing, this habit significantly affects your psychological state depending on the fragrance that gives off your perfume.

 

Fragrances have the potential to calm down or stimulate us, make our good or bad mood stronger, but also create positive or negative memories. Really, think for a moment how many times you have smelled a fragrance and immediately get images from someone or a situation.

 

  • Do you want a lively and positive mood?

The fragrance notes of citrus, lemon and peppermint increase the awareness of our minds and senses. They are ideal for the early hours as they awaken the brain, increase the pace of our work, and in general will positively affect our mood.

 

  • Want to help your concentration?

Floral fragrances help in gathering, but at the same time offer a sense of freshness, rejuvenation and emphasize your femininity.

 

  • Want to overcome the feeling of tiredness?

Wood notes such as oak or cedar relieve fatigue as they urge the brain to experience the same feelings of well-being as if we enjoyed a walk in the woods. Although these notes are mainly found in men’s fragrances, there are also women’s fragrances with wood notes.

 

  • Want to feel romantic and sexy?

Oriental fragrances contain warm notes such as vanilla, calf, amber which wake up erotic mood. These notes have the capacity to become much more intense when body temperature rises. That’s why it’s best to spray with perfume at places where there is intense blood circulation such as the throat, the elbows and knees.

 

Now that you know that perfumes can affect your mood, you understand why you should not just have one choice when it’s time to scent!!!

  • ANXIETY AND PANIC ATTACKS

If you suffer from panic attacks or anxiety you know how debilitating it can be. Use Fleur
Parfumerie Lavender and Myrrh oil during an attack or once every few days for
maintenance.

Apply one drop under your tongue.

  • DEPRESSION

Everyone suffers from situational depression or “feeling down” sometimes. With the
stresses and pressure of modern life, it’s no surprise that when we are struggling to
cope, many of us look for an alternative solution such as essential oils. For instance,
grapefruit, geranium and ylang ylang oil.

A very relaxing option is to add 5 to 10 drops of essential oil to your bath tub.

  • FATIGUE & LACK OF CONCENTRATION

Chronic fatigue hampers your concentration and makes you unable to enjoy
anything. See how you can get rid of it naturally. Chronic fatigue manifests itself by
exhaustion and lack of energy.

Peppermint, pino sylvestre and cinnamon essential oil helps with focus,
concentration and mental fatigue.
