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.
