All you need to really know about i Profumi di Firenze Lilla is that it is a lilac soliflore. And it is the best one that I have ever tried. If you are looking for a realistic lilac soliflore that captures spring in a bottle, look no further.
Lilla opens up as nose tickling, but in a good, bubbly sparkling wine way. This quickly mellows and becomes everything you expect from lilacs in full bloom on the most beautiful of spring days. If you are longing for a true lilac soliflore, then look no further. Lilla is it. There’s no fillers and no holding back. Lilla is lilac.
Lilla is super feminine. And because of this, my husband loves it on me. It’s different than the leathers, tobaccos, and orientals that I wear. Lilla is nostalgic for me. Back in the day, Avon made a lilac soliflore perfume. I had a bottle as a little girl. I’d dab it behind my ears and on my wrists, pretending to be a grown-up. I completely forgot about these memories until I dabbed Lilla behind my ears and on my wrists as a grown-up. I find that lilac is a nostalgic fragrance for many people. Everyone has a “lilac” story.
Give i Profumi di Firenze Lilla a try if you are looking for a true lilac soliflore or if you like perfumes like Pacifica French Lilac EDT/solid, Demeter Lilac EDT, Frederic Malle En Passant, White Shoulders, and/or Jessica McClintock. If you are fan of Blanc Lila soaps, then you’ll love Lilla. Every late winter, I purchase a box of Blanc Lila soaps to welcome spring. This year I didn’t buy a box and spring never happened in the Pacific Northwest
I think the most impressive thing about Lilla, other than being a photograph of lilac in bloom (and not a cheap-o air freshener), is that it is long wearing. How many long wearing lilac perfumes are in this world? Is Lilla the only one? It lasts about 8-9 hours on me.
i Profumi di Firenze Lilla retails for $99 and can be purchased at Luscious Cargo.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – So far, this has been my favorite lilac soliflore that I have ever tried. However, I’m not really in the mood to purchase a lilac soliflore at this time. Maybe one day. Maybe. And I think when that day comes, I’ll search for that old Avon, a little bottle of nostalgia. I’m sure it won’t be as good as Lilla, but that’s OK. Perfume is about memories.
