  White isn't just the absence of color, it's the backdrop against which color is free to play and reflect, soothing our hearts and calming our minds ~ Sarah Van Arsdale

When an object is cast in white, its unique character comes to the fore and is rendered at its most pure, simple - and beguiling. ~ Country Living

White can brighten up a garden and is a good choice for dark areas of landscape.

White is considered a neutral color in landscape design.  Its appearance can be used as a background for other colors.

The rich, sweet scent of French vanilla is a strong and creamy fragrance that is great year round. 
It is a scent that is calming, consoling, soothing, purifying, and centering. ~ Scent It

  The first of all single colors is white . . .  
We shall set down white for the representative of light, without which no color can be seen; yellow for the earth; green for water; blue for air; red for fire;
and black for total darkness.
~Leonardo da Vinci
