EAU DE LILAS | Limited Return Eau de Parfum

As per annual LVNEA tradition, we’ve feverishly buzzed from blossom to blossom and, with the help of our devoted team and generous local scouts, have been lucky enough to work alongside and extend a fraction of the fleeting Lilac’s ephemeral and enigmatic aura.

Bottled with reverence and care, this year’s edition of our Lilac soliflore fragrance is more than a perfume; it contains the very essence of this divine flower and its narcotic, honeyed heart, captured through artisanal energetic and olfactory extraction practices and left to mature with the seasons. These essences were then combined, and grounded by a complimentary bouquet of discreet florals and musk seed in order to provide tenacity and an enticing animalic effusion.

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.

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, before combining and grounding the blend into a stable fragrance.

Notes: lilac enfleurage · lilac alcohol-based infusion · lilac co2 · jasmine · rose ambrette

Impressions: a carnal and indolic floral ; wilting blossoms on the warm breeze ; the hot breath of life, exalted ; a bitter almond haze ; a hushed lullaby from a cradle of damp earth

Ingredients: Alcohol (Ethanol, Pure), Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Seed Butter, Vitellaria Paradoxa (Shea) Butter, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Natural Fragrance/Parfum (Essential Oils, Absolutes, CO2s, Natural Isolates, and Plant Extracts) 

15ml of perfume presented in a black glass bottle with atomizer.

*This fragrance is comprised of wildcrafted blooms whose delicate aromas and energetic essences were 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 may not perform with the same intensity as a regular natural or commercially-produced fragrance.  Wildcrafted in Tiohtiá:ke/Montréal .
