Rose in ice berry juice
Amethyst from Lalique smiled at me from afar and waved at me...
I smile back and like to grab Amethyst for a test :)

Already the bottle lets hope for a smell surprise and I am not disappointed...

Right after the first sprayer a variation of berries flies around my ears, which I have never sniffed before in this combination...
I mainly perceive blackberries and blackcurrants... it smells tangy-fresh, without sweetness... rather slightly acidic.... delightful... summery... fresh...

Then the rose comes along... she is noble in a dark purple dress... slightly synthetic, which is a little diva! But not bitchy or biting, rather fine, delicate and cuddly....

Thanks to the Ylang Ylang a warm shy sweetness comes out, which is absolutely harmonious here and makes the scent even more interesting....

Later a little bit of musk is added, which can only be perceived very well, but is also very suitable...

The berries and the rose are present and dominant all the time, which I personally like very much...

I like the scent very much, only the durability might be a little bit better, after about 4 hours the magic is unfortunately already over...

Forest Summer Afternoon
Scentrack: Ultravox - Vienna

n my opinion one of the most beautiful female perfumes. The explosion of all kind of berry fruits on the strong woody (Iso E Super) background and peppery musky notes. Very contemporary and almost unisex due to potent woody notes. The smell of fruit rhapsody during summer afternoon in the forest. Perfect Art Nouveau bottle. Scent like a fairy tale.

A basket of fresh berries
Lalique Amethyst opens like a basket full of black currants, blueberries and blackberries. And dare I say, the real berries! Not cloying sweet berry-flavour, but juicy, green, fresh, with a hint of acedity.

The transition to the floral heart is smooth. Without noticing, peony, rose and ylang-ylang are already there. The pepper adds some sharpness to the soft scent, like spikes on the stem of a rose. The delicious fruits are still present and smell sweeter than in the opening. But the sweetness is fortunately still in a subtle way, as if the berries have ripened during the development of the fragrance. The sillage is soft and the longevity is 7h+.

It's not a conventional girly floral-fruity fragrance. To me, it's an ode to the nature, the summer in forests. And I agree with tommy_girl that it focuses more on mind than body. I'd recommend it if someone's looking for a fragrance that smells like real berries. However, I suggest testing prior to buying as it's rather sharp during the first hours of development.

Fruit & Floral Perfection
Before this came today, I thought I wasn't much of a fan of fruity florals. Amethyst made me do a 180 on first whiff! Talk about gorgeous! The non-syrupy-sweet top note smells so good I didn't think berries right away. I thought, wait, what's this flower I've never smelled? Of course when most of us think Lalique, we think crystal. They're the house that designed the bottle for L'Air du Temps, the one with two doves, and many others. When the granddaughter, Marie-Claude, decided to start a perfume line in 1992, Lalique de Lalique was the first result and every year they make a stunning limited edition flacon of it. The bottle for my Amethyst EdP is pretty darned cool, too, a dark purple squarish affair, etched with a design of berries on the vine. Alluringly it implies its contents are special and they are. The floral heart is perfection, as is the vanilla-woody-musky base. Amethyst is the kind of richly fragrant perfume I search for, to fall and stay headlong in love. I snagged it for under $30, an utter bargain.

This fragrance opens with a ripe berry accord that is sweet and juicy. A touch of spices adds depth to the composition which otherwise would have been too girlish. After a while the fragrance gradually transitions from fruity to floral, allowing the gorgeous rose note to shine. The reign of the queen of flowers does not last the entire heart accord, for towards the end lily and ylang-ylang share this duty with her. The final stage of this fragrance is characterised by vanilla with a dash of musk. Young and sophisticated this fragrance just screams spring to me.

A rough amethyst
Just like the genuine, rough, amethysts given to an expert jeweler to cut and polish to perfection. And it comes out sparking with violet fires. From looking at the elements composing this perfume, a good number of them are dark purple, dark pink, dark red, and thus the Amethyste is deliciously dark, deep and beautiful.

AMETHYST by Lalique

Opens with a succulently overwhelming wine-dark flood of juicy vine-ripened black currant, blueberries, blackberries, mulberries, and strawberries. The delectable sweet-tart mouthwatering fragrance remains true to the natural plant essence and is unsullied by any added artificial sugary cloying sweetness.

A subdued dusting of spicy pepper enhances the intensity of the rich fruity juice aromas, rather like an encounter in a wild meadow when the berry bushes are surrounded by a number of other zesty flowering plants and herbs.

This blends seamlessly into an elegant shower of crisp peony and freshly blooming rose petals woven through just a trace of tenderly dreamy ylang-ylang.

Everything smoothly comes to rest on a delicately sensual base of clean musky light cedar woods and just a drop of warm, silky vanilla.

The berries remain jubilantly dominant on my skin to the end of the dry down with the subtly sensual spice hovering over them, and the subdued florals meander elegantly through the tantalizingly complex layers of fruits.

This melds exquisitely with my skin and brings to mind the elegance of ancient vineyards and old castles, and enjoying a magnificently dark aged wine with hints of ripe berries on a warm summer evening, surrounded by blooming rose bushes and peonies in a mysterious little romantic garden.

Richly evocative of the warm summer nights with delicious seasonal fruit and flora to be savored and enjoyed with loved ones. Magnificent. I adore this completely and without reservation.
