Pick the right rose !
"The gentleman found himself without much to offer when the time came to offer roses" ... That's how Jean de la Fontaine could have started a fable destined to guide men in choosing a bouquet of roses. However, with this great classical poet no longer of this world, it is BrusselsLife who will help you avoid any blunders. Follow the guide!
Credit where credit’s due: the red rose! The ultimate symbol for passionate love. A bunch of Black Baccara will be your best ally to declare your uncontrollable passion.
In a secret relationship? You dare not make the first move? A bouquet of white roses seems particularly appropriate in your case. White perfectly evokes silence and secrecy. Let yourself be tempted by this immaculate colour to show your pure and deep love...
When it comes to yellow roses, it is recommended to use the utmost caution! Yellow can be confusing. Don't we say that yellow is for suckers ? The yellow rose is mainly a symbol of love at its end and of jealousy, but can also evoke light, happiness and joy. To avoid misunderstandings, be sure to attach a card to your bouquet...
Between yellow and red, orange roses evoke sweet love. A bunch of these offered to your sweetheart should express desire and enthusiasm. At the condition that she too, read this article or that she is very knowledgeable when it comes to understanding the signification of colours in matters of love. When in doubt, abstention is the rule!
If pink roses appear to be redundant, this little guide is the perfect denial ... Privilege pink to bring an almost obsolete touch of romance or to evoke tender and sincere love.
And finally, black roses ... or more exactly purple, have always held a sort of magic and mystery to them. Tulips and black roses seem to come straight out of a fairy tale world and evoke the Art Deco motifs so popular in Brussels. The purple rose is a symbol of fatal passion...
Are your feelings confused? Do you wish to send several messages? Have you always wanted to stand out? Nothing prevents you from offering a bouquet of different colours! Vincent Depreay
