Leave it to the epic house of Amouage, after ruling the school with complex, labyrinthine and spice-stuffed scents, to release a pastry puff of pure delight in Lilac Love Woman. Even more so when you consider that this is not a lilac scent in the truest sense.
Lilac Love is a buoyant floral bouquet as delicate as they come, spiked with a winsome dusting of deliciously rich vanilla..
I gave this 1 star only because I had to, otherwise it would have received a negative from me. I did NOT like this scent at all!!! The name is very misleading. Definitely no smell of lilac to this at all, more like black pepper. VERY disappointed!!!
Opening is bit sharp on my skin, I did not like it. When it settles down I get powdery floral notes and some hints of spicy undertone too. Not a typical amouage power house, it has poor projection, close to skin.
To me, this smells like the epitome of a delicate french perfume. The florals and powder are heady and intoxicating at first and last for a good hour. It then dries down to a nice vanilla/chocolate that lasts and lasts. It's a skin scent after a couple minutes so no worries about being offensive at the office. I loved this and if t wasn't 400.00 a bottle, it would be mine.
At first, I thought, oh yuck... It smells musty. Thought I would give it a try any way. It has to "mellow" before you can smell all the layers, which are truly unique. I find this more for the older generation, and more for the fall/winter season, and I am actually enjoying the scent. Scent stays from sunrise to sunset.
Very strong and overwhelming when first sprayed. You have to wait for it to develop. It smells like lilacs and powder. It is a comforting scent. I can't wait to wear this in the Fall. It did not seem to jive with Summer for me. This perfume was hard to wash off to give an idea of how strong it is.
I was excited to try this one, however it really truly smells like an old woman. I absolutely love lilac, but this perfume does not have a true lilac scent. Its very soapy, powdery, and mature. I will never wear it.
This by far was my favorite scent to date. The musk and lilac blended beautifully. This is a very elegant perfume. I envision debutants wearing this at balls in big puffy gowns. Definitely a vintage scent.
Very powdery scent at first, then melts to a buttery vanilla aroma with the powder. I like the powder smell i think its feminine, so i don't mind at all. & I really love gourmand scents so I enjoyed this. Its long lasting as well. I don't smell the lilacs but i used only one time so far. If you feel like powdery perfume is old lady thing, skip this. Otherwise go for it. The powdery & sweet mix is worth it.
I like most scents; but, this scent is very strong, actually it is a harsh scent. A little goes a long way. I hate to waste; so, I will save this scent for late fall and winter. The summers where I live are hot and humid, which is a not a match for such a strong scent.
Completely in love! There is a warm floral, soft powder and cocoa that blend and smell very much like lilacs. The scent stays very linear and just fades in intensity. It lasts for 8-10 hours, but if you get a good sniff you can smell it on clothes the next day. I can't get enough of this scent. It has a calming quality. It works for warmer months, and it has an elegant yet sexy vibe. I'll be getting a few of these from scentbird, the price tag is hefty. Gorgeous!
The combination of notes in this smells like amber on me initially. It settles down to a very pleasant, powdery sweet smell with low projection but decent longevity. Safe and inoffensive. I like it but took a heart off for wow factor vs price.
Something about this just didn't really appeal to me. I don't think it smells bad but it's not for me. Happy I got a chance to sample. Very powdery and floral on my skin. Seemed a bit old fashioned. I didn't get a stong lilac note the strongest note by far is the powder. I would give it 2 hearts (stars.) I like that there are some truely highend brands available here makes me feel like I'm getting my money's worth out of the subscription.
Never got mine. Said I had two shipped out on same day (???) I got D&G Light Blue but never recieved this. I put it back in my queue because I really want to try it. Customer Service is a joke, I'm still waiting for a replacement for a defective vial I received. Instead of just mailing me the replacement (I sent them a video) they keep sending emails asking what address I want it sent to! I'm not even going to dick around trying to get this replaced. One more problem and I'm out.
Soft...Creamy...Floral...and definitely true to its name (Lilac Love). Ok you guys...THIS IS THE ONE!!! Other perfumes claim to have lilac as a base (you know the ones...you wear it & can NEVER pick out the lilac)...Well...they have nothing on this scent! It's all in there...an English garden draped around your shoulders! Love, love, LOVE!!!
This perfume smelled nothing like I thought it would! I thought I would be able to notice some lilac smell to it, but I didn't. To me it smells powdery, and like a sweet tart piece of candy. Luckily I have many more options to try.
