A tussy mussy is a Victorian bouquet carried by a lady and allows her to refresh her nose as she goes through her day. Usually, it is small, well made, with a special ribbon tied around it, and has sweetly scented flowers, which are pastel and (if possible) coordinate with the lady's dress. This tussy mussy would be pink, and it would have several flowers I associate with the early spring and even deep winter. Violets, winter-blooming witch hazel, a hyacinth, primrose, and a sprig of thyme taken from the kitchen windowsill, so it's not just all sweet flowers. There is a hint of "gravitas" to this bouquet. Somehow it comes out far more of a unified whole than a "floral perfume." All the flowers play together very nicely.
