Niche line Vilhelm Parfumerie has introduced two new fragrances, A Lilac A Day and Colette x Vilhelm.
A Lilac A Day ~ "A masterpiece in fragrance, the Vilhelm A Lilac a Day eau de parfum has captured the freshly picked, intoxicating green scent of the classic Lilac flower. Created using the same scent molecules that are found within the headspace of a live lilac, each ingredient used within the fragrance reproduces the different facets of the flower, so you can experience the joy of a fresh lilac beyond the confines of a crisp spring day. In the language of flowers, lilacs symbolise the first, tentative, yet exhilarating, moments of love. The lilac is a flower that speaks to its beholder, both with its delicate, textured appearance, and the familiar-yet-intoxicating scent at its heart. Believed by the ancient Celts to be a ‘magical’ fragrance, lilacs are considered to be a harbinger of spring, a season of rebirth and abundance." £145 for 100 ml at Liberty in the UK.
Colette x Vilhelm ~ "The New Yorker perfumery offers an original fig-based fragrance, inspired by colette’s signature olfactory scent, available from April 25th." €154 (before tax) at Colette in France.
