    Muguet Blanc by Van Cleef & Arpels

    I tried lots of lily of the valleys before this one, including: penhaligon's lily of the valley which comes down too lemony and dry, gouttal which smells like dying lily of the valley, floris which is a nice and faithful but slightly old lady lily of the valley, crabtree and evelyn which doesn't last the lily it seems in the beginning and bronnley which doesn't smell like lily at all.
    so, now after this running after a nice lily of the valley which doesn't smell neither like dead flowers, nor like housecleaning products, this muguet blanc was a surprise. I hardly search for good fragrances in fashion or jewelry houses. But all fragrances of this collection are nicely done. This lily of the valley is fresh, yet slightly powdery, educated, clean and elegant. In certain moments it reminds me of en passant by frederic malle.But with the difference that muguet blanc is a tad more grown up.

    It transforms the innocent youth of en passant into a grown up, self-confident elegance of a real lady who never forgets where she comes from. Clean, soft and un-alluring it breathes class all over. Nicely done with a good lasting power of several hours and a nice echo it leaves on my clothes. its beauty is unassuming and makes me think of audrey hepburn's understated charm. worth a bottle
