The national flower of China, the beautiful peony has inspired many an artist in both the eastern and western hemispheres, but it was the artists of China and Japan who become particularly renowned for incorporating images of the peony into the visual arts, poetry and literature.

Peonies are one of the main motifs of Chinese decorative arts and can be found on porcelains, in woodblock and screen paintings, as well as embroidered on to tapestries and clothing. In Chinese medicine, too, the peony has its place; for centuries, dried petals have been brewed into tea to treat coughs and peony seeds have been prescribed to prevent bad dreams. In fact, in the middle ages, it was hard to find an ailment that peonies were not thought to soothe!

As with the living bloom, our Peony is a soft, fresh floral note that's both uplifting and calming and works brilliantly alongside other delicate floral notes.

Did you know that The Library of Fragrance colognes can be layered to create scents that are unique to you? Mix and match any two, or more, to create combinations for every mood and occasion. Here are some suggestions to try with Peony:

Confused about the difference between cologne and perfume, parfum, eau de parfum, eau de toilette and/or aftershave? These different names simply refer to the concentration of fragrance oil within the bottle. All our fragrances are colognes, which means that they contain between 2-8% of fragrance oil. All of our products are unisex; we don't believe that fragrance has a gender.
