a bed of jasmine blossoms
The previous Lalique fragrances, which I was allowed to test, always impressed me with their clear, pure fragrance mixture. They feel as if they were splashing like a little stream to spread joy and comfort.
Of course I exclude the "Noir Premier" series and the men's fragrances.
These are very special compositions, which actually are not to be classified as "normal" day scent; but of course can also be worn as such.
Against this background "Lalique Le Parfum" was a little strange to me at first; we had to get used to each other. Whereby the beauty of this fragrance made it easy for me to like it.
I am almost immediately dominated by the large-flowered jasmine, whose five-petalled white flowers with the thick yellow stamens always radiate a special charm.
During the day they live decoratively in the dark leaf green; in the evening they exude their beautiful, sometimes also a bit "stinky" aroma in the generous surge of fragrance.
In contrast to the iris, jasmine is always as welcome to me as it meets me: as a magical plant, whose simple flower smells so wonderful.
This scent of thousands of blossoms is framed here by a bergamot, which nestles very well and some slightly crushed pearls of pink pepper, which underlines the scent of jasmine very skilfully, but also gives aromatic impulses.
The special thing about the previous fragrance is the laurel leaf: how much do I like this somewhat idiosyncratic, spicy fellow, who always places a few hooks in a previously smooth fragrance surface.
Thus it is no longer so uniform, no longer so round - and there is no danger of drifting into a possible monotony. - Laurel leaf mixes everything up neatly!
This is also a good thing, because now the heavy vanilla-like scent explosion of the deep violet flowering vanilla flower appears: the heliotrope reports to the scene!
At this moment a certain sweetness appears, which is underlined by the velvety velvety almost wool-white vanilla.
Also the Tonka bean is a bit sweet; quite refined, but if I'm quite honest, "Lalique Le Parfum" would do a bit of alcohol here in the form of cognac or rum, both nice ripe and golden brown, good!
A nice shade of dark wood would also be a fine alternative.
But we don't have that: so this powdery-sweet melange has to get a certain framework with sandalwood and especially with the sensual spun patchouli.
This also succeeds well; the fragrance gets a supporting base next to the sweetness and the flowery-spicy prelude.
"Lalique Le Parfum" is a very complex fragrance creation for a special occasion.
In my opinion, it could take a bit of dark blue velvet, so the light scent mixture would be beautifully underlined and take effect.
This fragrance stays with me for a few hours, but then it gets finer quite soon and the vanilla - or maybe the heliotrope - seems to age a bit.
Yes, the fragrance lacks a certain constancy in the farewell phase; it weakens, withers a little.
Every now and then it gets annoying and I have the need to use a portion of warm water as an antidote.
The flacon seems to be the female counterpart to that of "Ombre Noire". He also seems to be a little close to "Les Parfumes de Rosine", which are all decorated with a cord with tassels.
Well, if you like it ...
I was allowed to test many of the Lalique-fragrances in the last time: unfortunately "Lalique Le Parfum" is last on the ranking list of the most popular
Despite this almost intoxicating jasmine note, which I like very much, it lacks a little lightness and the fragrant facets that make up the other women's fragrances.
"Lalique Le Parfum" is a beauty of its own kind, but a bit too static for me!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Angelliese, who put this sample in my birthday package and allowed me to compare it with the other fragrances of this company
