Thread: Lily scents

  1. #1

    Default Lily scents

    My father loves the smell of garden lilies and I have been searching for a mens/unisex fragrance with a lily scent.

    What do you guys recommend?

    Thanks!

    I would suggest Francis Kurkdjian Aqua Universalis, which has got a strong lily note. It is marketed as unisex, beautiful bottle and very stylish packaging, and if your dad loves flowers and floral perfumes, that might fit the bill.
    It comes in perfume, scented bracelet, incense and even laundry detergent (!!). Give it a try!

    Also Lys Mediterranee from Frederic Malle is very good

    Un Lys by Serge Lutens is gorgeous. There's also Lys Carmin by Van Cleef & Arpels, & Stargazer by Yosh, although l haven't tried these yet, but they sound good.

    If he likes incense notes too, Passage d'Enfer may be his cup of tea

    Thank you all for the wonderful suggestions.

    BTW, is Frederic Malle only available via the internet if you don't live in France?

    And does Un Lys by Serge Lutens have an incense note to it like most Serge Lutens?

    He does not like incense notes. What he would like is a linear lily scent that is strong with good sillage.

    Oh, is lily of the valley scent very different from the generic white tiger lily? I am looking for the latter.

    Frederick Malle samples are available online from les senteurs in London. Un Lys does not have an incense note, it is a pure white tiger lily scent which is linear with fabulous sillage, sounds like it's just what you're looking for! Lily of the valley is very different, much fresher & greener than the rich, creamy, heady scent of lilies.

    Not sure what country you live in, but Barney's carries Malle, and there is a Malle store in NYC.
    I agree with teardrop that lily of the valley is an entirely different smell than lily. CDG Lily is really a LOTV scent rather than a lily.
