    Default SL Daim Blond or Un Lys -

    I have the opportunity to choose among these two. What would you recommend? I know they are totally different but anyway....

    Alicka, I own both of those fragrances. If you want an absolutely stunning fragrance where people stop you on the street and demand to know what the name is, where they can buy it and then a story about how their wife, daughter, girlfriend, etc. would love it, how unique it is, then choose the Un Lys. I have to plan to have lots of time on my hands when I wear it because all the chitchat about it with strangers always makes me late for appointments.

    Love and Light,

    I vote for Daim Blond...Un Lys is nice, but a bit simple. Also, if I want to smell like a lily, I'd rather do it with DK Gold.

    Both are perfectly nice though.

    Sofresh, I get your recommendation because I already own DK Gold. Thanks for helping me with my final decision.

    And Daim Blond is so wearable. Absolutely beautiful perfume. (As long as you like suede and apricots!)

    I am probably too late to vote for Un Lys, on the basis that you cannot have too many lily scents, and as someone who - regrettably, as it is a classic - finds Daim Blond peculiar in a perspiring insole kind of way. I have Un Lys and also own DKNY Gold and Penhaligon Lily & Spice!

    Un Lys for me. I bought Daim Blond first. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I'm not in the mood for its quirkiness. Un Lys is not just lily, it is deep & sultry, almost incense, but not (which I like, because incense is too overpowering). Un Lys has the deep dark French perfume (non-export) true potable alcohol. You don't get that from the Export frags.

    For me, Un Lys is a drop-by-drop perfume, while Daim Blond is a big-sprays perfume. So I'd get a bottle of Daim Blond and a decant of Un Lys.

    But I'm a sillage wimp.

    Well since Daim Blond turns into apricot jam on me, has to be Un Lys.

    I like lily (especially in the discontinued AG Des Lys), but SL Un Lys makes me feel ill... the vanilla gets to me.

    That's a tough one--they are not even remotely alike. I find Un Lys easier to wear, but both are great fragrances.

    Daim Blond! Suedy apricot-ty loveliness. But I wore it for my wedding, and don't really like lilies so I'm somewhat biassed.

    Another vote for Daim Blond. Un Lys is a great fragrance, whether or not you look at it as a lily solliflore (though I chose DK Gold over Un Lys in my hunt for a lily), very pretty and elegant, but Daim Blond is just unlike anything else imho.

    I vote for Daim Blond. Very beautiful.
    Un Lys is nice but I prefer Lys Mediterranee and I also have Gold.
