Lilac Spring Dream
I've been hunting high and low for a beautiful, true-to-nature and long-lasting lilac scent, but that would also have the complexity of a perfume and not a mere smell.

Of all those I have tested, this Guerlain Idylle's limited edition remains the best lilac offering in my opinion. It doesn't turn soapy and grassy like Ineke's After My Own Heart, it doesn't go light and watery like FM's En Passant, it doesn't smell chemical and synthetic like most mainstream fragrances and it doesn't lose its lilac character on the way, like other niche I have tested.

Idylle Duet Jasmin-Lilas is a lovely floral perfume for spring and warm weather, although I've worn it on a snowy winter's day and it was surprisingly gorgeous in the cold air as well.

The lilac is the most prominent note, but you can sense the jasmine, rose and lily-of-the-valley in the background. The floral bouquet has the trademark Guerlain aura of expensive elegance, including a powdery texture that takes away some of the freshness, replacing it with a classy, more mature vibe.

In my experience the lasting power is more than sufficient, with 10+ hours of olfactory pleasure. Sillage is soft and discreet.

Unfortunately it was a limited edition and is now increasingly difficult to find. Perhaps it wasn't as successful as Guerlain had hoped, but as far as I am concerned, it's a lilac dream.
