A Floral Introduction – Millicent

A Floral Introduction – Millicent

One of the newest additions to our exquisite wedding rose collection, Millicent is the rose of a bygone era. Reminiscent of the Golden Age of Hollywood, she represents great style and sophistication – think of those voluminous ball gown skirts – the epitome of old-school glamour.

Millicent is sophisticated and feminine with enduring style. With her vivacious colour; vintage vibe and mesmerising scent of citrus and old rose, Millicent is a cornucopia of wonderful things. Let’s find out more about this charming pink rose and how to weave her into your wedding flowers.

The ultimate Barbie pink rose

Beautifully voluptuous, Millicent blooms quickly as her colour evolves from warm, mid-pink to reveal hints of lilac and mauve. She is the gift that keeps on giving as her colour, form and scent evolve with each day, whilst retaining her beauty throughout. Her blousy blooms are filled with textured, swirling petals that unfurl to reveal a wonderful rosette with the delicious scent of a rambling rose garden and a touch of citrus.

A name of English origin, Millicent means ‘strong in work’ and also happens to be Barbie’s middle name, who we’re sure would approve of such a bright and unabashedly feminine rose. She is the ultimate choice for lovers of pink roses, whether for a blushing bride to carry down the aisle or as a Valentine’s or Mother’s Day bouquet that is sure to score serious Brownie points.

How to style Millicent

If you’re considering using Millicent in your wedding flowers, you clearly love pink flowers so why not go all out? Millicent works harmoniously with understated delicate flowers in varying shades of pink, like astilbe, cosmos, scabious and hydrangea paniculata. The graceful airy petals of these typically English garden flowers complement Millicent’s bold hue and blousy blooms beautifully.

Millicent’s sophisticated mid-pink tones also complement an array of colours blending well with creams, blues and lilacs as well as a bolder choice of hot pinks, damson and red tones. A naturally perfect pairing in both nature and on the colour wheel, you really can’t go wrong with styling Millicent’s vibrant pink tones with heaps of lush greenery. If you are looking for a more tailored contemporary aesthetic, use Millicent alone styled against a strong colour such as midnight blue or against a lustrous metal, and this will simply turn-up her gorgeous pink tones.
