"This is an interesting one, because it doesn't really smell like lily of the valley. So this more conceptual take on lily of the valley is so much more my cup of tea. It has a soft floral feeling that comes and goes, but this is mainly a balsamic, leathery, slightly syrupy and boozy woodland type of smell... * It has a combination of moist, green, forest floor type of scents and more dry, woody, softly smoky and also rock like smells. There is a gorgeous leather note in here. I think this might be my favourite from Parfums Quartana * Longevity is great, I get around 8 to 9 hours out of this. Sillage is a solid medium."
"Lily of the Valley by Quartana is soapy, dew kissed, a whispery light sweetness of roses, a woody vetiver, and soft supple leather. * This scent is a total chameleon and is laced with hints of eroticism."
"The early moments of Lily of the Valley are very straightforward as the titular flower is supported by neroli, rose, and jasmine. Until that leather jacket accord comes forward. At first it seems incongrous but Mme Benareau ads in sandalwood, labdanum, and vetiver which help our innocent discovery her wild side."
