EAU DE LILAS | Limited Edition Eau de Toilette
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 - 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 a lilac tincture from handpicked petals, making sure not to include any part of the stem (as this would spoil the end result). We then filtered the concoction and replenished the blossoms every few days for a couple of weeks, until a noticeable scent was present. This perfume also contains a traditional lilac enfleurage, made of a thousand blossoms and captured in a (vegetable) fat. The mixture is then carefully enhanced with other precious floral extractions, a base accord of benzoin and sandalwood, and floral hydrosols.
