Reviews of Aqua Allegoria Lys Soleia

Best lily frag I've ever smelled.
Creamy citrus and thick florals. Custard-like feel. Desert frag, in a way. Egg-like in a flan desert thing? Vanilla that is creamy and gentle. Good stuff, for sure. One of the best Aqua Allegoria scents I have tried. And of course, discontinued. (I managed to find a full bottle cheap, so I'm good). This one, is happy, for lack of a better word.
Ylang ylang and tuberose truly compliment lily here. Musk and vanilla only enhance the lily. Nothing bitter. Nothing stinks. A bit of sweetness - a bit of honey. Classy. Country mouse - not city rat.

I do not normally drool over such gentle perfumes. This, is an exception.
I get a cooked, banana-rum flavor later, with a slight bit of hardwood underneath.
Candied-custard and florals sustain. Warm weather frag it is, but this would thrill in colder months, when one needs a taste of summer, a boost of inspiration.

Dusty wood, steady lily, cold, creamy fruit goes on for awhile. It tricks me now and then. Notes move around and in layers. Always remains gentle and gourmand and just plain happy.

Gets creamier with time. Long-lasting. Ultimate femme!

It’s sweet but it’s dry. A bit in the way an oil can be dry. It’s not a gourmand, but it has the honey smell that some flowers offer. I would love it if it wasn’t staying so close to my skin. Joyful tuberose, with a bit of « putrefaction ».

The opening with the lily-and-hesperidic opening blast is very pleasant, with none of the two too dominant. The citric tone is incorporated into the mix and pleasant.

In the drydown the subtle waxiness and aroma of the tuberose blends in well with the rise if a lively ylang-ylang, with the latter's sweetness remaining sufficiently balanced. Then vanilla is added when approaching the base, but this is an unexpectedly unobtrusive vanilla and never cloying in spite of the ylang-ylang's additional sweetness already tilting this product towards the sweeter range.

Moderate sillage, giod projection and ten hours of longevity - that's the performance I get on my skin.

Technically done well and quite well balanced, this fragrance for spring days is well executed, albeit marred by a certain lack of originality. 3.25/5

With the mentioned ingredients, you expect a heavy, headachy scent, but it is not. It's sunny, sweet and flowery, with a moderate sillage. A fine fragrance for a certain mood - of summer and lightness.

A creamy white floral affair, unfairly toploaded and with little to nothing to offer after the first hour. I appreciate the restraint showed with the vanilla, which is here just used to bolster any missing sweetness from the distillation of certain naturally buttery plants. Not bad, but I am at a loss as to what hole in Guerlain's repertoire this was supposed to fill.

This is your typical Thierry Wasser perfume. Heavy on the sweet side with lots of vanilla and just enough other ingredients to keep it from smelling cheap.

I blind bought this after reading a review where someone said it smelled like the stargazer lily in her garden. She must have a totally different variety of stargazer lily then I have. Nor can I smell any white lily. Some are saying it smells like Casablanca lily. Since I have never smelled this particular lily that may be why I don't think this smells very much like it has a lily note. It could also be the lily is overpowered by something that smells very much like honeysuckle. I assume that's the ylang-ylang. I like both of these but prefer them to be subtle.

I like this but I don't need a second bottle. I'm not a big fan of the Aqua Allegoria series to begin with. This will do but it's not great. Maybe it will smell better during the hot summer.
