Three Days of Lilies. Day Three: Annick Goutal, Frederic Malle, Serge Lutens...And a Prize Draw.

Today is the last day of lilies, devoted to my most favorite scents featuring the note. These are the lilies to die for, nor a thorn nor a threat stains their beauty bright.

Serge Lutens Un Lys is the lily that I loved even when I did not like floral perfumes in general and lily scents in particular. Reading reviews and forums, I noticed that very often "floral-haters" single out Un Lys as one of a few obviously-floral perfumes they can wear and love. The secret of its success with the floral-phobic and lily-phobic perfumistas, I think, lies in the presence of vanilla. The scent is a perfect example of what a judicious, masterful use of the note can do to a composition. When used right, vanilla softens what otherwise could have been overly-sharp, soothes what could have been too harsh, but it does not overwhelm, over-sweeten or take over the composition. In the case of Un Lys, vanilla rids the lily note of its grating, high-pitched, metallic quality and enhances its lush, sweet (but not too sweet) floralcy. The delicate musky drydown is a comfortable skin-scent, which lingers long after the velvety flowers wear off.

Annick Goutal Des Lys is another lily scent that is soft and non-aggressive. The delicacy is achieved here by the means different from those employed in Un Lys. There is no vanilla in Des Lys, no sweetness added to the naturally sweet-smelling lilies. In fact, the lilies aren't even that sweet here. This is a cold scent, but not in an unpleasantly-aquatic manner. Des Lys is cool as a transparent white fabric wavering in the fresh morning breeze. This is a green (I smell leaves and stems of the flowers, not just the petals, especially in the beginning), translucent lily and the translucency is what prevents the scent from being sharp. The notes listed for Des Lys are casablanca and white lilies, and I am not an expert on lilies, but of the two, the fresher, brighter smell of white lilies seem to me to be more prominent than the spicy-creamy aroma of casablancas. Believe it or not, I also smell a leather-like accord in the base of Des Lys. One would not expect it from a scent so airy, so ethereally-feminine, but I swear there is something in the drydown that makes me think of leather (and, sometimes, hay) ... evoking in my mind an image of a fragile white lily with a black leather stem.

Edouard Flechier's Lys Méditerranée created for Frederic Malle's Editions de Parfum is anything but fragile. This is a Big Flower, just like one would expect from Flechier. Lys Méditerranée is a dazzling beauty viewed in close-up, larger than life, an intoxicating, unapologetically luscious rendition of (ginger) lilies. It starts with a bright, piquant bang of lilies and orange blossom. At times, the top notes are so spicy on me, I suspect the presence of carnations, but that of course might just be the zingy natural smell of ginger lilies. Sometimes the scent has a slightly marine undertone, sometimes Lys skips that part of its composition completely on my skin. When I smell the vaguely aquatic note in Lys Méditerranée, it does not bother me, as it does not possess the jarring metallic quality I abhor. When I smell Lys Méditerranée, I see majestic (and gigantic) white flowers, so big and ripe that their stems are almost unable to hold them, their sultry petals luxuriating in the coolness of the wind that comes from the sea. I love the musky base of Lys Méditerranée; the musk here is neither too clean nor overtly animalic. It is white musk gone slightly wild, led a little astray by the decadent, lascivious lilies. Lys Méditerranée is also available as body oil, and is just as gorgeous in that formulation albeit a little less complex, less audacious and much sweeter. If the regular version seems a little too heady to you, huile à tout faire might be a good alternative. Along with Antica Farmacista's Casablanca, Lys Méditerranée tops the list of my favorite lily scents, with Un Lys, Des Lys and Gold following closely behind.

Un Lys is available at Aedes, $120.00 for 1.69oz; Des Lys was last spotted on 99perfumes.com, $49.40 for 1.7oz; Lys Mediterranee is sold at Barney's, $75.00-$180.00.

If you would like to receive a set of (7) samples of some of the lily scents I talked about this week, including Lys Méditerranée and Lys Méditerranée oil, Des Lys, and more, please let me know in your comment that you want to be entered in the prize draw. A winner will be announced on Monday morning.

I really like your description of Lys Mediterranee! It's a grown-up, mature lily for sure. I didn't used to like it but adore it now. The oil is much softer and rounded on my skin. Love them both.

These three are wonders aren't they?

I have to add that Barneys also has Un Lys, as does Fred Segal in Los Angeles and Santa Monica.

Until it goes away, that is.

Just tried Un Lys two days ago, inspired by your lily week! I'd been terrified of white florals up until recently -- they do scary things in the crushing heat of Bangkok... But Un Lys was divine -- I see its potential as a gateway drug! Please enter me in the drawing. I'd love to continue the lily experiment!

Marina,
You write so effortlessly, yet so exquisitely. I want to go drown myself in Lys Med. or Des Lys right away. Thank you for reminding me that Tuberose is not the only luscious floral out there....I need that once in a while. I love all of these but don't reach for them enough. I will remedy that straight away. I must try the oil, though.

I loved Un Lys, but I thought that it was a bit linear (which had been rare for most of the other SL's) on my skin. I'd love to try some other lilies some day soon.

Un Lys is so sensuous I practically want to seduce myself when I wear it, if no other victim is around (though I suspect the remnants of my bell jar are a bit off: they've turned a garish orange). Lys Méd is my summer big white floral, precisely because of that (normally loathed) aquatic component... The oil, which I also own, is utterly lovely for days involving sun exposition (smooth some in my hair).
The Goutal I've never tried. Please enter me in the drawing.

I am any thing BUT afraid of lilies, bring it on! I would love to be entered in the drawing.

I wonder if there is any true lily at all in Lys Mediterranee, since "Ginger Lilies" are another thing altogether, and not related.(Lilium vs. Hedychium.) However, they do share the basic floral chemistry and indolic qualities, both being luscious white flowers that smell stronger in the evening. (I assume they use the white ginger lilies to make the perfume, as they are the most fragrant.)

White flower scents generally make me cringe. Gardenia, tuberose, lily? Spare me! But lately, I've been strangely attracted to Fracas, so maybe it's time to take the plunge and *gasp* try them flower powers on my skin? So yes, please enter me in the draw.

Marina,
I have 2 of these 3 you mention, missing the AG. When I sprayed my samples I put them both away as too too much flower. I love these reviews because if it were left up to me and my impatient nose, I would miss what these have to offer. Needless to say, I will search for them and give them the respect and time they so deserve. Please enter me in the draw, I've got some lily work to do. Peace.

What absolutely brilliant descriptions! Love the image of a lily w/ a black leather stem for Des Lys. Will have to go maximal lily today w/ Un Lys on one wrist, Des Lys on the other and Koto on the ankle, since Sara's comment reminded me of it and I do adore it as well.

I like the sound of Lys Mediteranee, and am intrigued by the leather note you detect in Des Lys. I must say though, I am still most interested in Gold. It sounds the most complex in terms of not being just a soliflore. I'm going to dig in my bag of samples and see if I have one of Gold. I've enjoyed Lily week very much!

I have not tried any of the lily scents you have reviewed, so please enter me in the draw! :-)

L,
You know, Koto is more muguet on me than lily. But there are many scents that feature both and in some one note is stronger on me, in some the other. Take Alpine Lily. It could go the muguet way or the lily way. That one goes the lily way on me.

Thank you for all 3 of your lily reviews, Marina. As ever they are intriguing and tempting. I have entirely thrown off my white flower suspicion in the last year! However the only lily I have tried is Gold and I liked it.

Thanks so much for these reviews! I love Lys Med. I actually had the pleasure of a long consultation with a fabulous saleswoman at the Frederic Malle boutique in Paris several years ago. I got the full psychological analysis a la Malle and to my surprise she recommended Lys Med. I bought it and to be honest it took a while for me to really fall in love, but now it is one of my absolute favorite perfumes and my signature summer scent! I love the musk and the angelica in the dry down, and for some reason my skin doesn't really pick up on the marine note (thankfully). I would love to be entered in your draw!
