May Muguet Marathon: Muguet en Fleurs

Another affordable muguet fragrance comes from Yves Rocher: Muguet en Fleurs. It is exactly what it appears to be: a muguet soliflore, priced for the mass market but with Yves Rocher’s customary good value. In other words, this is a pretty fragrance (and the nose behind it is Sonia Constant), and it smells nice while it lasts, but it doesn’t last long at all on most people.

There is no progression to describe, because the scent comes and goes so quickly; the only notes listed on Fragrantica are lily of the valley and green notes, and that is pretty much what you get, although when it launched, Now Smell This also listed bergamot, citron and pink pepper. Some Fragrantica commenters have noted that this would be a pretty scent for linens, etc., and it would. It also comes in the form of shower gel and body milk, which might extend the longevity of the eau de toilette. In its bottle, the eau de toilette is pale green, just as in the photograph above. It is part of a series, like Guerlain’s original Aqua Allegoria series, meant to evoke a morning in a garden.

It is light, fresh, and dewy, and it is muguet, but that’s about all there is to it. However, if all one wants is a little burst of lily of the valley, easy to reapply all day, this is a nice option. It would be hard to over apply Muguet en Fleurs, as it is so light and fleeting, but when you first spray it on, it is bright, cheerful and reminiscent of spring. Some days, that is all one needs or wants. But I’m definitely going to try it on my pillow!
