Unsafe DuoFlor
Here, Pierre Guillaume found a muscular way to link muguet and lilac through their mutual note of indole. Usually associated with orange blossom and jasmine sambac, it gives this duoflor a strange kind of beauty, like a Star Trek alien, who is attractive but not something you want to cosy up to.

Rue des Lilas was a Bloom bestseller when re-issued in 2016; hard to see why it was deleted in the first place. But like Flora Nerolia, and Fleur du Mâle, it suffered the fate of things that refuse to lie down and play safe.

Piercing and powdery
Growing up in the northern outskirts of Europe granted me a childhood with not to many spring blossoms, especially not spring blossoms with prominent scent. Lilacs was one of few. Maybe that´s why I haven´t found a single perfume with obvious lilac note that I really like and care for. This far, nothing have come close to the real thing, the lilacs blossoming in my grand mothers garden close to the northern polar circle.

Until I tried Rue de Lilacs that is. Rue de Lilac is the first lilac heacy fragrance that reaches and acyually also manage to touch my heart. The opening is a masterpeice in fragile beauty. Piercingly high tuned lilacs underscored with some aldehydes and also a dash of tart citrus. The opening is somehow creating the feeling of lilacs blossoming in the last snow fall for the season. (Which is absolutly possible where i come from)

After a short while softer notes of lily-of-the-vallet chimes in, deepens the experiences, making it soft and caressing, but still with that piercing emotion in the background. Piercing and powdery at the same time, that´s not bad, I have for sure not encountered that in many perfumes. This way of handling lilac note makes Rue de Lilacs a modern lilac scent, suitable for a wide (but somewhat romantic) audience. Rue de Lilas is a must try if you still haven´t found a lilac scent that you like (or love), and for lovers of lilac it could very well become a wlecome addition to other lilac scents.

I feel totally comfortable when I wear this, and I can see myself buying a FB of it or at least a split (anyone interested???). Lasting powers isn´t that amazing, but decent enough, after all it´s only an eau de toilette.
