Your search for the perfect gift is over because MOHLIA and their wax-preserved flowers are here to the rescue
Does your significant other or best friend love flowers but hate to see them wilt? Flower store MOHLIA’s infinity flowers might be the solution to your problem.
MOHLIA is a “budding” Hong Kong-based startup founded by 22-year-old author and entrepreneur Simran Mohinani. She got the idea for the business when she was moving from the United States to Asia. Realizing that she wouldn’t be able to find infinity flowers (real flowers preserved for one to three years by wax treatment) as readily in Hong Kong as back in the US, Mohinani decided to start a business to bring this service to Asia.
MOHLIA’s infinity flowers are grown in mountains of Ecuador with the finest of them being hand-picked and preserved at the peak of their beauty using wax treatments. The rose oil formula used in their wax treatments ensures that the flowers retain the look and texture of any fresh flower. The company sells various kinds of flower arrangements, perfect for any occasion. If none of them strikes your fancy, MOHLIA also offers you the service to customize your orders.
The Jumpstart Team received three pieces from their collection– the Everglow Mini Fleur, Elysee box and the Euphoria rose. Here is our review of these pieces.
MOHLIA’s flowers come in a variety of colors, and you can see how pretty they are! So if you’re looking for something that adds some color to your life, they have you covered. MOHLIA’s flowers retain their texture, but unfortunately the preservation takes away their natural fragrance. The flowers are delicate and must be treated as such. Our Editor, Sharon, took the chance to test how the flowers felt only to end up squishing them too hard and was very sad she crumbled the petal!
Their Everglow Mini Fleur (as shown above) is the perfect example of how “out of the box” (pun intended) their products can be. It’s rainbow colored petals are eye catching and although it looks completely out of this world, it feels as soft as a fresh rose to the touch. This was one of their last pride-related products for Pride Month! And we are elated that we managed to get a flower that’s designed for a specific cause.
MOHLIA’s Elysee box (displayed above) is an impressive arrangement of preserved hydrangeas, peonies and Akoya freshwater pearls. With its heart-shaped box and flowers in aesthetically pleasing tints and tones of pink, we think this would add just the right touch of sophistication to your home décor. Who knows, maybe it’ll do well for a wedding or an anniversary gift!
One of the company’s customer favorites is the Euphoria rose (as seen above) from their LUMA collection. Looking at it closely, we can see why that would be the case. The rose in its see-through acrylic box is like the modern version of the beast’s enchanted rose from Beauty and the Beast, ideal for any Disney fan.
Within eight months of business, the company has seen tremendous growth. They have worked with Teen Vogue, Emirates Airlines, Kate Spade and a range of other big-league brands. If you’re a Hong Kong local, you can head to their store in K11 Musea. If you’re not a local, no need to worry, MOHLIA ships to 92 other countries worldwide. Check out their Instagram to learn more!
