Best Lilac Perfume
INEKE After My Own Heart
After My Own Heart was inspired by the wistful, romantic nature of the lilac flower, of fresh lilacs floating on the early evening breeze, that is crisp green but sweet fruity at the same time. The opening has these notes of bergamot and raspberry that take you to the tender heart filled with lilac notes. Sandalwood, heliotrope, and musk can be seen featured as the base note.
Pure, natural, delicate and divinely unique, excellent sillage and longevity.
Lilac is the dominating note in this fragrance obviously, there are supporting notes as well and the opening notes are very green and leafy, representing the leaves on a lilac bush. It also has this sandalwood note that very creamy. The dry down is very powdery and part of that comes from the heliotrope – this is an accord that has floral origins but has this vanilla-almond smell. It is quintessentially a feminine scent that is light, airy thanks to the powdery dry down.
AMOUAGE Lilac Love
Lilac Love is a full-bodied combination of florals and cacao, and is meant to be a recreation of the lilac accord in an animalistic and powdery way with tones of jasmine and rose for a melodious balance. The accord of lilac is blended out in the opening with rose, gardenia, jasmine, lilac, peony, and heliotrope. This uncovers a beautiful heart of tonka bean, cacao, and or is to balance its complex character.
The base note consists of warm sandalwood that lends its charismatic sensuality, accompanied by a suave richness of patchouli, soft facets of vanilla to create a classic floral symphony with a romantic musky veil. It captures the true spirit of classical femininity in the modern woman.
Excellent longevity and strong sillage, appropriate for casual or formal events throughout all seasons.
too strong for some, too floral for guys
We were blown away by how great this one is and especially the more gourmand notes. This EDP is categorized as a floral gourmand and from the initial spray, you get the full blast of lilac, and is a pretty big fragrance even for a floral. There’s a little bit of an almondy touch that comes from the heliotrope and other flowers like gardenia, peony that is n’t so dominant here.
The heart notes are when this EDP gets really exciting as this is when the cacao comes forward on the dry lilac. The base notes are woody and this is when the sandalwood kicks in and is vanilla at the same time. So the fragrance develops really nicely. Amougae creates long-lasting fragrances, which has this classic and modern touch.
Thierry Mugler Angel
Angel is an oriental-vanilla perfume that’s perfectly feminine and comes in that signature star bottle with top notes of melon, coconut, mandarin orange, cassia, jasmine, bergamot, cotton candy, and pineapple. At the heart, you have caraway, nutmeg, honey, apricot, blackberry, plum, orchid, peach, lily-of-the-valley, rose, and red berries. Finally, the base notes are tonka bean, vanilla, patchouli, sandalwood, amber, musk, chocolate, and caramel.
Great longevity, unique fragrance for strong, confident women,ideal for daytime use.
Not wearable on the hottest of days.
It is anoriental-vanilla perfume but we like to think of it as a gourmand.It a kind of a classic, and can be placed up there as a consistent good seller.In terms of what it smells like, it’s a heavy one and really long-lasting and too much of it can literally fill a room. It confusing as there’s so much going on, but it is mainly centered around the chocolate, caramel, patchouli and sweet notes on the top, along with the candy floss. It’s mainly sweet but it’s got a dark edge to it.
It is distinct, massive, goes for days and really pretty. It does open up a little darker, spicier, and edgier than the dry down. When it dries down, it literally turns into this sugar bomb of the candy floss, sugar, caramel but reacts differently on people.
Aerin Lilac Path
Aerin Lauder is known for making a scent for each time of year and mood, Lilac Path was inspired by the lilac bush which blooms at her late grandmother Estee Lauder’s summer cottage. The perfume has a delicate character, with crisp greens, rich blooms, and delicate petals. The fragrance blooms with galbanum, creamy jasmine lactones, angelica seed oil, and orange flower. This is heightened by heart notes of lush fragrant Galbanum, Creamy Jasmine Lactones. It is given depth with the addition of soft Angelica Seed Oil and Orange Flower.
A perfectly lovely scent, especially for the springtime, great for all ages.
Get this if lilac is one of your favourite accords, and reminds us a lot of Diorissimo. It is a really pretty spring-summer scent that flowery, a bit sweet and sour all at once. Lilac Path is clean, very balanced and mesmerizes you with its light, breezy aura.This EDP is very elegant, tuned up, well-edited, well-selected quality ingredients and is very comforting.
Elizabeth Arden 5th Avenue
5th Avenue has been inspired by the classic architecture, distinctive Manhattan skyline, the alluring style of the iconic New York City streets and meant for women of power and effortless grace. The top note consists of lilac, linden blossom, dewy magnolia, mandarin, and bergamot. The heart note consists of Bulgarian pink violet, ylang-ylang, jasmine, Indian tuberose, peach, carnation, and nutmeg. The base note consists of amber, Tibetan musk, sandalwood, iris, and vanilla.
The lilac, dewy magnolia gives its this classic, feminine feeling that’s been enhanced by exotic notes of Indian tuberose, while the amber and Tibetan musk remain after dry-down, adding an alluring air of mystery for that appeal, energy of a modern lifestyle.
Classic and refined crisp floral, the scent is perfect for a night out, very long-lasting, wear it on cloudy winter days.
It’s not a young person’s perfume.
The reason we chose this fragrance is that it’s an affordable all-rounder, and is a classic. Although mixed up with 17 notes, it’s very beautifully blended. It’s divisive though where younger people think that it is dated we see their point. When this opens, this is the freshest part where it has this bouquet-like with golden florals in the background. It’s immediately east as it’s not one of those in your face florals.
This is very safe, unlike 24 Fouborge by Hermes, or AnaisAnais by Cacharel and is a good choice for someone who doesn’t normally use florals. Nothing jumps out and it is pleasant enough after all it’s been created for women in plush business, office environments where it sits comfortably without being offensive. That the top, the lilac, LOTV comes to the front that’s refined, warm.
