Between fruity chypre and fruitchouli
The inspiration for this beautiful new Lalique fragrance came from the "lys motif" René Lalique used for a flacon in 1924. The motif of the "lys noir" was based on Egyptian frescoes and reinvented by René Lalique, whose entire œuvre is teeming with floral symbols. So it isn't suprising that the company behind the Lalique fragrances ("Arts&fragrances") opted for a new floral scent in 2014.
The azalée itself is a flower that is supposed to symbolize love, but azalée doesn't boast of a particular scent. Therefore the perfumers used roses to express this concept. I can smell radiant roses admidst a sunny garden, where peaches grow and lemons sparkle.
The scent was announced as a "fruity chypre" and its base is indeed marked by patchouli, a fact I enjoy. By the way, the inclusion of bergamot and peach in the top notes rings a bell, and first I was reminded of "Mitsouko", but the rosy, flowery heart speaks a different language. There is no oakmoss in "Azalée", it is clearly a contemporary take on the chypre genre with the fruity-ambery aspect of the scent pointing into the direction of the popular "fruitchouli". "Azalée" is no bold, subversive fragrance, but a pretty mainstream flower in a beautiful bottle. Not too loud, not too brash, not dramatic. Very much in line with the company's classic style.
