With the first few wears of Ulrich Lang Lightscape, I didn’t really care for it. It seemed to be the obvious “feminine” edition to the more masculine and unisex line. This was in the winter when I’d rather be wearing Ulrich Lang Nightscape. I started sampling this again in late winter and I finally cared for it. Lightscape is a clean, powdery iris floral. That’s what I want in the spring.
The opening of Lightscape is a green iris with tons of bitter galbanum and refreshing citrus. The heart of Lightscape reminds me a bit of Estee Lauder White Linen. It’s a floral with aldehydes, very clean and crisp. The dry-down is powdery cashmere musks with a clean linen. It’s not a ground-breaking violet/iris but I enjoy wearing it. It’s “breezy” and casual. It reminds me of blue skies and fluffy clouds. Look down and you’ll see daffodils in bloom.
Notes listed include galbanum, violet leaf, lemon, iris, rose, violet, cyclamen, cedar, ambergris, tonka bean, cashmere wood, musk and ambrette. Launch date 2012.
Give Lightscape a try if you like aldehydic florals. Or perfumes like Estee Lauder White Linen, Prada Infusion d’Iris EDT or EDP, Maison Francis Kurkdjian Aqua Universalis Forte, Chanel No. 5 Eau Première, Chloé Love Chloé and/or Narciso Rodriguez Essence. Lightscape reads more feminine to me but it is unisex.
Lightscape has above average projection, sillage and longevity. Just one spray stays on my skin for over 15 hours.
The 3.4 oz bottle of Lightscape retails for $110 at Beautyhabit. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Crisp, powdery floral. Like I said, it’s nothing special but I like it. Plus, the price isn’t too shabby for a niche perfume.
