EAU DE LILAS | Limited Return Eau de Parfum
Sorry, currently out of stock
The elusive lilac scent is one that is incredibly difficult to capture in perfumery — especially naturally. The petals are simply too delicate to distill, and tincturing and enfleurage techniques are generally too labor-intensive to produce on a larger scale. Lilac's fragility lends itself to its perfume, and the resulting scent will always be more ephemeral than that of others, fading from the skin same as its blooms wane as spring leads into summer.Notes: lilac · honey · indolic florals · benzoin
These same challenges of capturing the lilac scent make it all the more appealing, however, and the result that much more precious. To begin the process, we first created our lilac enfleurage — a laborious, multi-step process where each handpicked blossom is carefully laid out on a layer of vegetal fat, which captures their aroma, and replaced daily. We then used the spent petals, still charged with scent, to create an olfactory tincture, and combined the two before carefully enhancing the blend with a Lilac C02 extraction, a bouquet of narcotic florals, and a base accord of benzoin and sandalwood.
Aspects: floral · honeyed · slightly musky
Ingredients: lilac-infused alcohol, lilac enfleurage (fresh lilacs, coconut oil, and avocado butter), rose water, a blend of essential oils, and absolutes including a very special lilac co2, jasmine, rose, lily, sandalwood and benzoin.
Alcohol (Ethanol, Pure), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Seed Butter, Natural Fragrance/Parfum (Essential Oils, Absolutes, CO2s, and Plant Extracts)
15ml of perfume presented in a black glass bottle with atomizer.
*This fragrance is comprised of local, seasonally-grown, and handpicked blooms whose delicate aroma was captured through artisanal enfleurage and tincturing techniques. Variations from previous editions may occur, as no two seasons' flowers' scents are ever the same, making this a truly one-of-a-kind fragrance. Please note that the results of an enfleurage are extremely delicate, and will not perform with the same intensity as a regular natural or commercial fragrance - although we have carefully blended natural aromatics to enhance the natural lilac aroma without overpowering it, rather helping it to stay around longer.
