Sweet Pea Old Spice Cupani


Sweet Pea Old Spice Cupani. First Introduced to the UK in the 17th century by a Sicilian Monk who sent seeds to Robert Uvedale of Enfield. Closely related to the highly fragrant wild sweet pea found in hedgerows in Sicily and Southern Italy.  It has small flowers and short stems, but the perfume is outstanding.
