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!
