Happy May Day 2019! Every year or so, I do a “May Muguet Marathon”, to celebrate one of my favorite flowers and fragrance notes: lily of the valley, traditionally given on the first of May. Below is last year’s round-up; I’ll start afresh tomorrow! Do you have any favorite muguet fragrances I haven’t yet reviewed? Feel free to make suggestions!
As today is the last day of my self-imposed May Muguet Marathon, I’ll do a brief wrap-up. Some of you who were reading this blog the last time I did this, in 2016, will know that I previously discussed some of the all-time greats among muguet fragrances. I did not repeat most of those, so I list them here with links if any newer reader is interested:
and some new classics:
Jo Malone’s Lily of the Valley and Ivy
Olivier Polge’s Always in Bloom
Laboratorio Olfattivo’s Decou-Vert
Last, if you haven’t overdosed on muguet by now, here are Fragrantica’s picks in 2018:
Best in Show: Lily of the Valley
I hope you’ve enjoyed this trip down Muguet Lane! Thank you for joining me on the journey! If I’ve overlooked some muguet fragrances you’d like to suggest, please mention them in the comments!
Today I’m wearing Goutal Eau de Charlotte which for me has a strong muguet note, but other strange things going on as well. Then there’s Tauer Carillon pour Une Ange which is another not just muguet that I wear from my sample set when I’m in the right mood.

I have to try Carillon again. I’ve only tried it in store and didn’t get much LOTV, so I haven’t pursued it, with so many others to try.
