Clean and bright summer fragrance
That's a good option for very hot days - that's when this fragrance shows its splendour.

Great smell but in my skin it doesnt last more than three hours.

Lots of fresh green notes over a woody base. Unissex.

Reminds me of Dior's Escale a Portofino but more green.

Lasting power is weak, while sillage and projection are okay.

Sniffing outside the orthodox cologne box...
Many colognes features green herbs such as basil and tarragon. How many feature dill? To my knowledge, very few. Lalique EAU DE LALIQUE dares us to don dill. Are we up for the challenge?

It's an interesting question to me because on reflection it is entirely unclear why we wear any of the scents which we habitually wear. Consider some of the standard colognes: citrus abounds. The classics of the classics, neroli colognes in the style of 4711, would never cause anyone to pause. Why? because there are so many of them already in existence. The question remains: Why?

The answer is that at some point down the line some perfumer somewhere thought that citrus floral compositions featuring neroli were a good idea. Refreshing, clean smelling: who would not want to smell like the flowery parts of an orange tree? Well, maybe Gabrielle Chanel...

Jean-Claude Ellena and Emilie Copperman asked another question when they created EAU DE LALIQUE: you want to smell like aldehydes, we say why not smell of dill? The most obvious answer to many would be that they have no desire to smell like pickles. Dill is connected in many people's memories with pickles because it does not have all that many other culinary applications. Can dill serve as a focal note in a cologne without making us smell like a picnic condiment? The answer, I am happy to report, is: yes.

In this creation, which seems obviously to me to be a cologne in spirit, although the longevity is, as advertised, closer to that of an eau de toilette, the dill is used alongside cardamom and citrus to produce a uniquely refreshing fragrance experience. Some of the other listed notes, such as pimento, I do not detect at all, but the blend is smooth, light, refreshing, green and clean, and tinged ever so slightly with the scent of both cardamom and dill.

EAU DE LALIQUE is a summertime scent for adventurous types who do not care what others think of their choice in cologne. This one is not loud, but the dill is without a doubt detectable and anyone who fears being accused of smelling like pickles may think twice before donning this juice (no, not pickle juice!). To me, EAU DE LALIQUE fits right in with the Hermès Jardins series. Remember shredded sour mango? This creation for Lalique may have been a first effort in that direction.

A Wet Garden
There is nothing opaque about Eau de Lalique, to Express How evervesent Words and Anethetics put together like a Rose is a Rose by any other name
But this captures the Eau in de eau in laymen's terms
French for Water, Eau de Lalique offers of what the consumer expects, A Watery Giotto of fruits and vegetables. The opening sort of Zolts you up from a
Sombulist interlude with Cardamon driesto the prime
then in a few minutes dill softens the edges of the Caramon note adds an edible aroma conjours an image
of a lush Greenhouse nursed the finest and the most juiciest and delectable Fruit and Vegetables & the Most fragrant Florals with the most striking color palettes soaked after the midnight rains and releasing
an intoxicating scent steeping though the air giving a
feeling of Primal self awarness of nature,

As Eau de Lalique dries to the heart,
Red Pimento comes crawling to our senses like a Vine
onto a wall Spicy but tame in Comparison to the Cordamon blast at the opening stands on it's own with it's Spicy accord, My skin has a habit of Eating most of the Fragrances i review and Eau de Lalique is no
exception It Vanishes in just 5 Minutes on me not giving me a chance to detect the drydown but i can say beford the enevitable process begins that i do pick up a faint scent of Hibiscus This shy note gives it an Elusive quality that after all the showy florals have gone to rest an unexpected beauty shines
under flamboyance. Also did i pick up the scent of Carrot? with this perfume your find Something new with every wear.

Despite of all the interesting Juxpatations of notes
of Eau de Lalique, did not grab me mainly for two reasons The weekness of the Perfume and also to the Nauseating strengh of Cardamon note and Dill, but neitherless An above average Sent.
