For generations, women spanning from Mothers and Daughters to Grandmothers and more, have loved to receive a beautiful bouquet of flowers. We guess there is no real science in the matter as to why women become very joyous and vibrant after receiving a bouquet, but these responses encourage men from all around the world to buy flowers for their loved ones.
A women’s response poses more questions than it answers; is it the art of the lilies that welcomes a smile to her face or is it the deep, luscious red roses that prompt her cheeks to fill with a warm, smitten glow?
These questions remain unanswered following the introduction of flower arranging by the Egyptians in 2,500 BC. Flower assembling eventually bloomed in Europe in 1000 AD when churches and monasteries used flowers for decorations and gifts. Today, scientists believe there are over 270,000 species of flower resulting in some quite overwhelmingly stunning bouquets.
