Collins Street - Lily of the Valley
Collins St was laid out in the first survey of Melbourne, the original 1837 Hoddle Grid, and soon became the most desired address in the city.
Collins St was named after Governor of Tasmania David Collins who led a group of settlers in establishing a short-lived settlement at Sorrento in 1803.
The eastern end has been known colloquially as the 'Paris End' since the 1950s due to its numerous heritage buildings, old street trees and high-end shopping boutiques. Lily of the Valley has been associated with high fashion and opulent people.
As with all main streets in the Melbourne city centre, the Hoddle Grid is exactly 99 feet wide which would allow for the installation of trams in 1885.
Lily of the Valley:
Lily of the Valley has broad leaves with flower stems covered in elegant white bells. A beautiful and fragrant cut flower, add this to other floral fragrances to give them a heady top note. Vibrant florals of Lily, Jasmine, Rose and Gardenia are intoxicating with a spice and musk background.
