Perfection *5 stars out of 5* - I'm not all about "niche+highend". There are some hidden treasures out there. This is one. An amazingly good Lilac-soliflore. A fragile spring-beauty. A big realistic bouquet of light purple lilacs. Superb lastingpower and with a very good sillage.

Soft and lovely. I use en passant by frederic malle and it shows to be a little volatile at times. This lilac by yves rocher offers an excellent line of shower gel, bodylotion and eau de toilette. Au contraire di en passant it is a little less water-fairily and somewhat more vanillic soft in the basis.
A true, sweet, headturning garden lilac with a hint of vanilla cookies. It smells young, fresh, gorgeous... a beauty bonne-mine. A fragrance being gentle and romantic, feminine and kind without missing character.
It reminds me of monet's garden.
I do mix it with en passant in order to give a bit more corps to en passant. This fragrance is entirely pretty also worn by itself. It is glowing like a soft rosy cheek.
it carries the priviledge of pureness - true unmanipulated lovelyness
the best thing - it does not cost much and if it was all i could afford on a low budget, this would be a lifetime fragrance because it does not smell cheap at all.
It's true lilac! It's a very nice fragrance, flowery and romantic, it reminds me of those Avon lilac soaps my mom kept on the wardrobe so clothes would smell good. I'm not a great flowery scents fan as they give me headaches, but this one captivated me. The only drawback is that it went rancid after only seven months, it smelt so bad I had to throw it out when I came back from holiday. This seems to be very common with many Yves Rocher products.
This is a very, very pretty lilac fragrance that truly smells like a hybrid French Lilac. If you love lilac you must have this!
