The fragrance description mentions heady blooms, and that’s definitely my first impression from this perfume. That lily note is just the heart and soul of this scent, backed up by geranium as the second most prominent note. This is a rich floral fragrance. It comes across as so realistic too – I’m instantly transported to the last time I actually bought lilies, in a village flower shop many years ago. The scent feels very authentic, and the simplicity of the composition really does make this a soliflore, showcasing the fragrance of the lily. Scarlet Lily feels like it has well-rounded depth. This is a rich, darker floral, with depth and complexity.
Thought Black Tulip would be my perfume for life but decided to get this sample - and so glad I did- doesn‚Äôt last quite as long on my skin but love the beautiful undertonesand the heady floral intensity of the top notes -may have been considered a bit of a scarlet lady at one time in my youth- very happy to be thought of as a scarlet lily in my 70‚Äôs!!!
A strong and confident floral scent for the evening, love it
A beautiful, evocative, sofisticated fragrance.It manages to be both austere and fiery in equal measure. Cooly aquatic to start with. Think immaculate lily pond rather than ocean, this wonderful perfume then alternates between warm and cooler notes throughout. This is on my full bottle list for sure. And as ever exceptional quality ingredients and fast efficient service.
I ordered the full size as soon as I tried this sample!!! Absolutely stunning on my skin and lasts well. Although it‚Äôs floral it is modern and powdery. A good rival for the Jo Malone I used to use and I‚Äôd say it‚Äôs better quality. Love that this is cruelty free and vegan. The full size arrived in beautiful packaging - even the mailing box was adorable!
A beautiful fresh, floral, sophisticated and intriguing fragrance. So pleased to be able to order a sample to try.
Lovely fragrance. Always liked floral perfumes, knocked one star off because the fragrance didn't last all day.
I generally am drawn to floral scents but there is something really special about this one ... it's just so realistic! Great to be able to try a sample first too as buying fragrance on line can be such a gamble. Needless to say, I have purchased a full size now. Superb price for a boutique product - thank you Shay & Blue (I'm looking forward to Black Tulip next!!!!!!!!!!)
Many scents do not suit my skin, unfortunately this was one of those
This is like a bouquet of voluptuous summer flowers but there is more than a hint of lily of the valley which keeps the overall fragrance from being too cloying. A lovely, romantic floral without being old-fashioned or so recognisable that you get bored with it. Very feminine
