Review: Penhaligon’s London Lily of the Valley (EDT)

Penhaligon’s Lily of the Valley is a timeless classic. An utterly feminine white floral scent and the perfect springtime fragrance. In the language of flowers, Lily of the Valley means “a return to happiness”, and that is exactly what this fragrance exudes, pure happiness.



This is a delicate and simple soliflore that opens with a floral citrus. There is a hint of spiciness, yet this fragrance is crisp and clean. Think of of spring and a dense green and white blanket of fragrant flowers that covers the forest floor, leaves still wet from passing rain, a subtle dewiness. A combination of rose and jasmine join in the middle notes, and stays fairly linear until fading into a soft sandalwood/lily combo. A very green, cool and powdery white fragrance with amazing lasting power (approximately 2.5 hours).
