What flower lover doesn’t have a botanist’s bent? We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite pseudo-scientist gifts for your inspection:

Above: One-of-a-kind Hand-Pressed Botanical specimens, grown by designer Christopher Wilcox and mounted on linen in black wood frames, measure 17.5 inches high and are $149 each from Restoration Hardware.

Above: From Seletti, a trio of three glass labware Chemical Vases; $60 apiece. 

Above: The naturalist will appreciate flowers that don’t fade. A simple dried flower arrangement of white statice in a 7-inch-square cement pot; Constance is $38 from Flores del Sol via Etsy.

Above: Photograph via Parfums Delrae.

The problem with most flower perfumes is they don’t smell like the garden at dusk in June. Parfums Delrae Debut does. The scent is a modern mix of old-fashioned Lily of the Valley and vetiver; $135 for a 1.7 ounce bottle.


Above: A pair of Mini Shears from Burgon & Ball is small enough to slip into any pocket before you head out into the cutting garden; £10 from Objects of Use.
