Clear summer day
Yesterday was a clear summer day, the way I love it.

An azure sky without clouds, the sun laughed mildly and did not burn - and no muffled heat in front of the forehead, because there was a gentle wind.
Le soleil glasses.

The shapely crystal clear Lalique Flankon with the embedded white flowers in the glass lid was a perfect match.

Carefully I took a spray, because not with all Laliques I get warm.
I didn't get warm this time either, and that was a good thing, because the light scent exudes a pleasant coolness.
citric bergamot paired with radiant jasmine lift the spirits, and one would like to rave like Kästner of the weather to the "laying of eggs".
The lily of the valley tinkles freshly and sweetly - and Cashmeran sets a soft accent.
Amber rounds off the friendly scent sweetly, and gives durability.

To wear a Lalique under the open sky, in a convertible and at the open window.
Pure summer feeling.

Today is the day when my husband and I got to know each other, and I casually mentioned my beautiful fragrance experience.
I think he got the hint

Creamy White Mist
This is a gossamer mist of pale loveliness from initial spray dusting the skin to total dry down, which on me is approximately 6 hours.

This opens with top notes of crisp breezy bergamot and a very elegant blooming of cool-clear floral aldehyde of lily. The pink peppercorns then come rolling in, making a delicately spicy counterpoint in the midst of the luminous floral glow.

(It’s not jasminum grandiflorum or jasminum sambac, it’s lily. There is no animalic taint or indolic fecality to pollute the limpid transparency of this gem. It’s not even synthetic jasmine. The scent is distinctly colder than jasmine. You can even look on the bottom of the Lalique box and the chemical ingredient list states that one of the components is LILIAL. Chemical name is butylphenyl methylpropional. This is a lily aldehyde.) Well bravo to the synthetics. This makes for a balanced and moderately fresh floral.

The central notes soon progress into a 1st distillation type of ylang-ylang note and a very understated carnation which is bolstered by the already present peppercorns. Then comes the star of this creation; a ravishingly creamy, buttery, and silky smooth stephanotis. I adore stephanotis. Stephanotis is more sultry, deep, and rich than jasmine, more sensual than lily or lily of the valley, but much less heady than tuberose. It is also devoid of any mentholated, overly-ripe astringency or animalic fecal smelling indoles. I would bathe in stephanotis if I could. Lily of the Valley is the supporting cast member to the Stephanotis star here. The delicate lily of the valley gently whispers and swirls around the velvety Stephanotis like embroidered strands of pure white silk; a scintillating shimmer of freshness.

There are tantalizingly subtle nuances of woody violet, a hint of cloves, and even the barest trace of melons woven through this delightful brocade of scent as it unfurls completely from top to bottom.

All of this eventually comes to resolve into a gracefully sensual, refined base of pale musk, elegant blond woods, and a just a touch of rich-warm amber; it remains close to the skin.

This is an exquisitely feminine floral fragrance that strikes me as being relaxed, casual, unpretentious, tender, intimate, and refined.

Lalique LOTV
I am always pleased to see a new lily of the valley fragrance introduced into today's market. Muguet fragrances successfully straddle youth and classic for me, so I was very keen to try this. An opening burst of slighty soapy bergamot qickly turns into a lovely soft veil of lily of the valley and jasmine, that floats around you. The dry down is a softly wooded musk, I don't get any amber from this. Very elegant.

Bright White Flower Alert--for better or for worse!
Lalique FLEUR DE CRISTAL is a seriously potent white floral perfume, rivaling some of the old school 1980s creations in its projection and tenacity. To me, this is a virtue. I am very disenchanted with the flood of weak juices being fobbed of as eaux de parfum. This eau de parfum is much closer to an extrait or parfum. So if white flowers are your thing, specifically lily of the valley and jasmine, both of which are in abundance here, then FLEUR DE CRISTAL may satisfy the urge to dive into a big pile of white petals which wells up in all of us from time to time.

The composition is clear and sharp and bright, precisely as the name implies. In fact, the first thing I noted upon applying FLEUR DE CRISTAL is that this is an extraordinarily well-named perfume! It is so sharp and pointed, however, that it holds within it serious headache potential for those sensitive to strong floral compositions, so a caveat emptor is definitely in order for anyone considering a blind buy. One thing is for sure: if I acquire a bottle, it will be the smallest one available, because this is the sort of perfume of which I could not use 100ml of even in multiple lifetimes. I do like it, but only sparingly applied. The whiteness is almost blinding, if overapplied, rather like staring at the sun.

Thank you Guusje for introducing me to this perfume!

-------------------
update:

I acquired a bottle of this creation and have decided that the fleeting opening is beautiful LOTV, but the cashmeran drydown swiftly overwhelms and becomes tedious after a short while. The headache potential is not due to the white floral but the aromachemical component, which is quite persistent.

The bottle is somewhat amusing, with little plastic LOTV bulbs encased in lucite atop a hefty glass bottle. Not Lalique's best effort, imnsho

The perfect lily of the valley
Would it be an outrage to say that I find Fleur de Cristal a better representation of lily of the valley than Dior's Diorissimo? It probably would be scandalous, but heaven help me, I think it is.

Fleur de Cristal is the essential Spring-like floral. I can say this now as I attempt to wear this in freezing temperatures, and although nice, this fragrance only blossoms when I stand next to the heater.

Lily of the valley of course shines all the way through this composition, with jasmine and stephanotis creating a soft, soapy and white bouquet. Fleur de Cristal could actually work as a fragrance for a bride on her wedding day.

There's a beautiful tenderness to this fragrance that is both inviting and romantic. It's not a strong fragrance, but in this particular case the softness works in its favour. Fleur de Cristal has the ability to make me feel calm and clean. White florals have that undeniable charm that speaks femininity and purity.

Fleur de Cristal is sensual too in a very strange way. It's not a come-hither scent, but it's intriguing to a male nose, like a symbol of innocence that a man can not wait to corrupt. All in all, Fleur de Cristal is a love that I find difficult to describe, but something that I know I need to wear every now and then.
