Lookout For Synthtic Blond Woods!....
Lillipur opens with vermouth-like transparent wormwood with hints of moderately hot spicy pepper. As the composition transitions to its early heart the wormwood vacates, replaced by a slightly bitter star anise that melds with a short-lived natural lemon and cedar tandem that quickly subsides to reveal the underlying synthetic blond wood accord from the base that gains intensity considerably as time passes though the fragrance's mid-section. During the late dry-down the synthetic blond woods diminish considerably, allowing the lemon and cedar to make a reappearance, now with subtle patchouli and dry tobacco support. This new lineup slowly gives way very late to slightly powdery, relatively dry benzoin-laced amber through the finish. Projection is slightly above average and longevity very good to excellent at just shy of 12 hours on skin.

I first saw the official note list to Lillipur and decided to just bite the bullet and blind buy a bottle at its relatively reasonable price point. Now having worn the composition on skin several times, I may have been a bit too quick on the draw. The vast majority of the composition is quite pleasant and right up my alley... Notes like natural smelling lemon, cedar, dry tobacco leaf and slightly hot pepper are just the kind of ingredients I look for. Wormwood is a risky ingredient for me as my skin frequently doesn't mesh with it, but here it comes off as very vermouth-like and smells great albeit extremely short-lived. So, what is the problem with Lillipur? Maybe "problematic" is a more apt descriptor of the synthetic blond woody accord in the base that dominates large portions of the key mid-section's development. I am highly confident that the accord is derived from my arch-nemesis, Cashmeran. Some love the stuff, but for me it comes off smelling synthetic and overpoweringly strong. For all I know there could be quite a few more ingredients in Lillipur that I never detected despite my best efforts due to the Cashmeran concealing them under its ever-encompassing potency. When the blond woods finally recede there really is a great composition waiting to be found in the incredible smelling late dry-down. Getting there is the challenge, however, and each individual will have to decide whether it is worth it. For me, the composition is just "good enough" to remain in my collection, but I am afraid it won't be used often. The bottom line is the $145 per 100ml bottle Lillipur has a reasonable price point per milliliter and an impressive list of ingredients, but the synthetic blond woods are just a bit too much, keeping the overall score to a "good" to "very good" 3 to 3.5 stars out of 5. Recommended to those that either enjoy Cashmeran or are not bothered by it as there really is an excellent fragrance underneath the stuff. That said, if you are sensitive to the ingredient, lookout!
