Welcome to the weekly Perfume Chat Room, perfumistas! I envision this chat room as a weekly drop-in spot online, where readers may ask questions, suggest fragrances, tell others their SOTD, comment on new releases or old favorites, and respond to each other. The perennial theme is fragrance, but we can interpret that broadly. This is meant to be a kind space, so please try not to give or take offense, and let’s all agree to disagree when opinions differ. In fragrance as in life, your mileage may vary! YMMV.
It has been two years since I did a “May Muguet Marathon“, so I think it’s time for another one. Happy May Day, and if you celebrate by giving or wearing real lilies of the valley, enjoy their heavenly fragrance. Je vous souhaite une bonne Fete du Muguet!
P.S. Please join me in the Comments — if you have a favorite muguet fragrance, or if you are wearing or have one that I review, or if you just want to share thoughts on lilies of the valley!
To whet our appetites for more, more, more muguet, and on May Day, Fragrantica has presented its “Lily of the Valley Best in Show list: Best in Show: Lily of the Valley Fragrances (2016). All the contributors to the list have wonderful suggestions; some of their picks are fragrances I hadn’t heard of before, or didn’t associate with muguet. More things for me to try! Happy May Day!
Can’t resist sharing this marvelous photo of a little Parisienne clutching her May Day muguets! Thank you to the Scented Salamander for the original post:
