Scentiment Flowers is an exciting flower business servicing the south west of Western Australia. Scentiment specialises in beautiful flowers for weddings, special events and as gifts for loved ones. But above all else I love to work with my clients to design beautiful flower arrangements according to the secret language of flowers.
My name is Nardine and after a lengthy city career in advertising, marketing and communications, a desire for clean air and open spaces resulted in a move to the beautiful south west of Western Australia. Together with my husband Mark we built a new house (with an old-worldy feel) on a 16 acre property in the Ferguson Valley and started a new life complete with horses, alpacas, chickens, dogs and one very lazy cat.
Then I fell into event management in nearby Bunbury and at last found an outlet for my creative side!
But I’ve always loved flowers and books … so when I spied a new novel by Vanessa Diffenbaugh called The Language of Flowers I was in heaven! I devoured every single page (twice) and fell in love with flowers all over again! But how could I work with flowers in this little piece of paradise? My mind went into overdrive and with the words of a very memorable woman in my ear (“you need to find your niche … something no-one else is doing”) my next adventure started to take form.
I began to consume all the literature I could find on the lost art of the secret language of flowers. I read … I researched … I studied the art of floral design under the tuition of German master florist Iris Pich and before I knew it … Scentiment Flowers and the Scentiment Flower School started to blossom!
