Disclaimer: this is not a lilac perfume. This is a lilac-colored angora sweater that you want to wear on your naked skin while rolling around on 1, 000-thread count sheets with a basket of gray Persian kittens. It is a million miles away from the bold oriental regalia of the Amouage lineage – this one whispers, and has an adorable French accent.
We can’t get over how pretty Lilac Love is. A soft bouquet of roses, jasmine, gardenia, and heliotrope is whipped up into a rosy, milky froth, dusted liberally with cocoa powder, tonka bean shavings, and fresh vanilla sugar. The texture transitions fluently between a cool, floral milk (lactones, gardenia) to a warm, cocoa-like powder (iris, patchouli). You won’t know whether to wear it or sip it from a mug while watching the snow fall outside your ski lodge.
