Lalique: Soleil

The perfume was gifted to me for a review by

Despite being part of the beauty world for a few years now, there are still established brands that I have never heard of before. Lalique is one of these brands. Until recently, I had no idea this brand exists. Now I know. It is a luxury french brand that specializes in production of glass art, vases and other glass related stuff. Today I will be reviewing one of their most popular perfumes called Lalique Soleil which in french means the sun. 

The perfume comes in three sizes - 30ml, 50ml and 100ml. You can clearly tell Lalique is an artsy brand. The bottle is gorgeous. The lines coming from the centre remind me of sun and sunlight so it goes hand in hand with the name of the perfume. Moreover, the perfume comes with a bracelet (just a friendly reminder that Lalique bracelets cost about two hundred pounds so that's a very nice touch) which I may actually like even more than the perfume haha. 

The scent is definitely unique and it smells expensive. Again, I think it ties well with the name. It is warm and kind of sweet (but not too much). I would say it is a mature perfume but not to the extend you would need to wait till you are fifty to buy this perfume. I just find it difficult to imagine an 18-year-old smelling like this but I guess that comes down to what people prefer. 

Top Notes: Bitter Almons, Tangerine, Cardamon
Middle Notes: Jasmine, Latte, Pear Granita
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Praline, Musk

Despite the top notes being quite citrusy, this is just a hint, do not think of anything super lemony. On the other hand, I think the Pear and Jasmine are the main notes here and give the scent the warmth and sweetness that is so profound in this perfume. 

I think it lasts the whole day but it is not as strong as people may think once they smell it for the first time. I find it quite mild, just ideal for day to day rather than just for the evenings. 
Overall, I love this perfume. My first impression was a bit meh, but I fell in love with it eventually. Now I don't wear anything else (and I have a loads of options. Thank you Notino :D).
