Flowers are exceptional children of nature. They are perhaps the most pleasing for the eye and the soul due to their harmonious shapes, beautiful colors and unique scents. Most people prefer floral fragrances because of their natural and relaxing qualities. Even today flowers play a big role in the aromatic industry, particularly the light scent of a garden rose and wallflower, as well as more intoxicating blooms like jasmine and lilies. The Prophet Muhammad loved the scent of flowers, especially violets.
The Ottomans were a flower-loving civilization. In addition to those in the garden, they used to plant flowers in houses and in front of windows. Mothers and grandmothers looked at flowers as if they were looking at their children and grandchildren. Even growing flowers was a hobby of serious men. Floral patterns were preferred for dresses.
