"According to one legend it was Venus who made the Violet blue. She had been disputing with her son Cupid as to who was more beautiful – herself or a bevy of girls. Cupid, with no fear of his mother, declared for the girls. This sent Venus into such a rage that she beat her rivals until they turned blue and turned into violets."
The porcelain Snuff Boxes come with 14 plaster noses for anointing with the accompanying fragrance recharge oil. Open the lid of the fragrance recharge oil and drop a few drops of the fragrance oil directly onto the noses. Start with about 15 drops. he noses will immediately become darker when the oil touches the plaster but as the oil absorbs they will return to their original colour. Some of the raw ingredients of the oils may change the colour of the noses over time but this won’t affect their fragrance diffusion. You may remove the noses and place in cupboards or drawers, or on your desk as you work.
The Snuff Boxes are not meant to fragrance a whole room, but to provide a subtle fragrant ambiance to spaces. Place near open windows to move the fragrance around a room, or simply display in the centre of a table. Replace the lid when not in use.
