A modern, romantic floral symphony embroidered with a charismatic sensuality. Sweet, elegant and eternally potent, Lilac Love is a symphony of floral energy. Lilac accord defies expectations of a powdery, demure texture and registers as an opalescent, beaming force of purple proportions. Heliotrope is decidedly more matte, a caramel-tinged lapis that reminds us of the darkest, most royal blue velvet. Peony is a bright contrast, searingly verdant yet still insistently spicy and sweet. Gardenia gleans something valuable from peony’s insurgent intensity, and presents itself without apology, shining brilliantly even as it drips its honeyed nectar at a slower, darker speed. Orris is the silent heart that anchors Lilac Love, introducing a powdered richness that absorbs and balances some of the aggressive prettiness on display herein. Cocoa bean continues orris’ mediating work, it’s bittersweet, red brown tones offsetting and warming the cool perfection of preceding florals. Bronzed tonka bean sparkles amidst sandalwood’s verdant shimmer, while patchouli smolders and vanilla salves. A big floral (sewn in the style of 1980’s organza and gem-toned silks), Lilac Love has us swooning.
