    Lily of the Valley by Penhaligon's

    TOP NOTES
    Bergamot, Lemon and Geranium

    MIDDLE NOTES
    Lily of the Valley, Rose, Ylang Ylang and Jasmine

    BASE NOTES
    Oakmoss and Sandalwood

    Penhaligon's Lily of the Valley is the tomboy of the Muguet soliflores. The addition of unusual notes like geranium and oak moss take what is usually an utterly feminine white floral scent, and cast it in a more complex chypre-like role. Do I detect teensiest weensiest bit of rubbery/leatheriness in there?
    If the Guerlain Muguet is Grace Kelly on her wedding day, and Diorissimo is Diana Spencer during her engagement to the Prince of Wales, then the Penhaligon Lily of the Valley is Katherine Hepburn in khakis and a polo shirt. Green, clean, and wholesome.
