L'Amour Lalique Eau de Parfum

Composed by Nathalie Lorson, the fragrance offers an olfactory declaration of love. The citrus freshness of bergamot deliciously blends with elegant rosebud and soft neroli.

The heart, crucial in a love story, enriches the fragrance with a bouquet of sumptuous white flowers: tuberose, gardenia, and jasmine. The base is structured on dry, warm cedar & creamy sandalwood resting on a bed of addictive musk.

Floral and sensual, L'Amour is an elixir of pure seduction.

Comes in 50mL (1.69 fl.oz.) and 100mL (3.3 fl.oz.) bottles.

I'm with the first reviewer, Eau de Lalique is a gorgeous (slightly) masculine aromatic citrus and vetiver styled cologne that fascinating that is a bit of a let down and I think I know why. The top notes smell fresh, aromatic, with an green tinged orange peel opening and an elegant subtle woody drydown. This could be truly unisex at this point and is more elegant, light and clean than Bulgari Eau The Vert as it skips the cloying musk.

But where it fails is that baby powder drydown. Its no longer unisex and brings nuances of cheap roll-on deodorant. Perhaps this was popular in the past but I've noticed most Lalique womens fragrances seem to have that same strong powdery baby ending which is a real turn off (I've tried 6 so far).

Notes from Fragantica:

Top Notes - mandarin, pimento, bergamot, dill, cardamom, lemon
Heart Notes - cinnamon, hibiscus, freesia
Base Notes - sandalwood, musk, benzoin, guaiac wood

I really like this light citrussy cologne. I swear I smell vetiver in the drydown, but that note is not listed in the notes listing. What IS listed:

Top Notes: Mandarin, Cardamom, Citron, Bergamot, Dill; Middle Notes: Freesia, Hibiscus, Cinnamon; Base Notes: Amyris Wood, Sandalwood, Benzoin, White Musk, Guaiac wood.

I did smell the freesia, and I do not love that note, but it was fleeting. The overall impression is of fresh citrus and vietiver to my nose. It would be really lovely on a very hot day. I wish it were summer right now.

EDITED: I applied more to see whether I could smell the vetiver note more clearly, and this second helping amped up the freesia to the point where I couldn't smell anything else. Eventually the herbal/citrus/vetiver qualities re-emerged, but bah... I cant wade through a field of freesia to get there. Overall, this scent cold have been great, but missed the mark.
