Although this is for Fariba, I must comment.

Although I have never had a special affinity for the narges, I now have learned that narges=narcisse.

And, I think this is special because my mother is known for always wearing the same lovely perfume and that is Narcisse by Chloe, so your picture made me think of my mother after I learned the translation!

Thank You.

Assal Jan, the picture is for Fariba, who said in an earlier post that her mother loved them! I'm glad you commented. The flower is called Narcissus, and Narcissi is the plural form of the name. Do you know the myth of Narcissus, the Thespian character? Narcissus was a handsome Greek youth who rejected the desperate advances of the nymph Echo. As punishment, he was doomed to fall in love with his own reflection in a pool of water. Unable to consummate his love, Narcissus pined away and changed into the flower that bears his name, the Narcissus. Be good azizam.
