The great hall was shimmering in light,
sun streaming from the open windows, and ablaze with colour,
the walls decorated with embroidered hangings in rich shades of gold and crimson.
New rushes had been strewn about, fragrant with lavender, sweet woodruff, and balm...
the air was... perfumed with honeysuckle and violet,
their seductive scents luring in from the gardens
butterflies as blue as the summer sky.
Sharon Kay Penman, Devil's Brood

First-generation digital scan of a Victorian trade card from the late 19th century, produced by T. Kingsford, a successor to W. J. Austen & Co., a perfumer from Oswego, New York.

The front of the card shows a winged meadow pixie holding a basket of violets or forget-me-nots, of which she is handing out in bunches. The back of the card extols the virtues of Austen's Forest Flower Cologne, a "new triple extract combining the most delicate and fragrant odors known."
