Flower That’ll Make You Flinch Begins to Bloom at Nicholas Conservatory
One of my favorite quotes is from Christian Dior; he once said, "After women, flowers are the most divine creations."
Something tells me that Mr. Dior never came into contact with a rare flower that's now in bloom at the Nicholas Conservatory, the Voodoo Lily.
According to WTVO, there are three of them in bloom and despite how unique and beautiful they may be, proceed with sniffing at your own risk; they're famous for smelling like death, decay and rotting meat. (I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.)
Despite the stink, people seem to always be drawn to it's pungent rarity and now you have the opportunity to experience it for yourself. Congratulations.
And if the smell of things that zombie perfume would be made of isn't really your thing, there's always the "In Full Bloom: The Orchid Exhibit" and the butterflies are still there.
Here's what you can expect the Voodoo Lily aka the "Corpse Flower" to look like once it's in full bloom.
