WHAT I SMELL: Lilac Extrait has a warm and enveloping opening with a quick dash of bergamot followed by this lovely peachy tinged floral which proves to be rather demure. It’s hard to single out any one note as they all float ethereally in this radiant haze above the skin. After around 15 minutes the soft and lovely lilac builds into this green and powdery bouquet of pure heaven. After the 30 minute mark, Lilac Extrait really begins to project, although it’s not a shouter, and what you’re left with is this cozy warm blanket of lilac comfort.
The Roja Parfumes website describes Lilac Extrait as “heady sweet freshness”
Lilac Extrait Notes:
