It’s that time of year again: the lilacs are blooming.
There is just something about the smell of lilacs – sweet, floral, greenish, spicy, and innocent – that I adore. It’s a very youthful smell, I think, a very springlike one.
I waxed rhapsodic about lilacs in this post a few years ago, listing all the lilac scents I knew of.
I now have, thanks to a kind friend, a small amount, a few milliliters, of Patou Vacances, of which I previously only had a tiny sample. It is oh so beautiful. The perfect lilac+greenery scent.
Today I’m wearing my DSH Perfumes White Lilac (sorry to say, this one has been discontinued and is no longer available). It is lovely and innocent, sweet and spicy.
Do you love lilacs? Have a favorite lilac scent? Do share, please.
