Spring in a bottle. Very realistic smelling lilac note, then gets sweeter - the almond mote must be correct. Unfortunately, it's discontinued. I bought the newest lilac fragrance from YR but that was disappointment, nowhere near as beautiful and realistic as this one.

This is a heavenly scent, so soft and pretty. I bought my bottle in 2006, it somehow ended up buried in my miscellaneous cabinets, and I only recently found it, and the scent has not gotten stale at all. The bottle is about 75% used up and I read that it has been discontinued....oh no! Hopefully will be on ebay or amazon, would definitely go into my essentials list.

A realistic lilac. Anyone who is familiar with the flower will not hesitate to acknowledge it as one, and anyone who truly loves lilac will immediately be inspired and transported with joy. This perfume made me believe that perfumes can really closely resemble in their smell what their labels claim. It smells of lilac even from the bottle. When it touched my rist it turned into a genuine,recogniseable but a slightly toned-down lilac,a bit more sweet than green. Maybe it was toned down to make it more wearable for the modern audience. Whatever the case, it sometimes fails to unfold full potential, complete heady opulence of this flower.If you wear it in cold but windless days it radiates, if it makes any sense to u, in odd and unpredictable directions. On such days it is more beautiful when smelled directly from the skin than when you merely sniff its cloud. The longevity is not impressive, people say that it might be caused by the lack of too elaborate a backbone of base notes. Towards the end it becomes more sweet and less floral,therefore less realistic but I love that stage as well. Due to extremely weird climate noted in my country in recent years I have had a chance of testing it both in winterlike and springlike weather in a very short interval. In springlike weather, born on a mild,warm wind it starts radiating in an organized way, becomes more long-lasting and its cloud more noticeable and divine. I adore it in spring or springlike conditions and can’t wait for the spring to set in! Really amazing for warm weather! I love it! Anyway, this is the first real soliflor without a mess of other substances that I have ever tested and I hope I will have an opportunity to test more. Really nice for
the price.

There isn't much I love more than the smell of a blooming lilac bush. This fragrance is perfect lilac, even more dead-on than Pacifica's French Lilac. I love the tiny hint of nuttiness, it gives it a slightly earthy feel. This is a very light, fresh floral. It isn't powdery at all, and I wouldn't put an age on this. Both mature and younger women can easily pull this off. Obviously it's best for spring. It has great sillage for a light fragrance. I am definitely considering buying a full bottle of this!

My mother loves this scent. My mom has always loved Lilac, her favorite flower. She has told me her grandma had lilac bushes at her home, good memories for her. I've searched for years trying to find lilac scented sprays or body products, but all the ones I bought weren't a true lilac smell. I ordered this for my mom a few years ago and as soon as she sprayed it on herself she just lit up. She said it reminded her of her grandmas house from her childhood. It's a very true lilac scent.

I love this so much I even got a back-up bottle plus the body cream. This is a true lilac scent tweaked just a tiny bit with the almond to give it volume and richness. It's the way a huge mass of the flowers would smell if put in a vase to scent a room. Rich, cozy and concentrated, rather than leafy and diffused on a cool spring wind (which is the effect of the new YR Lilas Mauve, a perceptibly different lilac fragrance). It lasts 4-6 hours on me as well. It's discontinued and hard to find, so stock up if you can. Yves Rocher does an excellent job on their lilac soliflores -- this and Lilas Mauve, of which I have back-ups too.

Pur Desir de Lilas is attributed to Annick Menardo, whose work I love (Boss Bottled, Hypnotic Poison, YR Pur Desir de Mimosa, Hypnose) and who infuses that subtle almond note into many of her creations.

I have a close male friend from India who, after knowing me for quite some time, confided to me that he is often visited by angels. He says that he knows they are near because they often emit strong smells of fruit or flowers that are nowhere in his vicinity. Once, when he and I were at the beach, we suddenly smelled the scent of thousands of peaches all around us. It was magical and about as close to heaven on earth as I could imagine.

When I was wearing this perfume, he said that he had once been visited by angels who had this scent. So, naturally, whenever I feel like I need a host of angels around me, I wear it.

Today, I had a job interview in an office of all women. I gave my scent a lot of thought because usually, with women, you don't want to smell overtly sexy, nor bitchy, just noticeably pretty. I could not imagine a better scent, and I wore a lilac colored skirt suit to match! Needless, to say, I got the job!! I am pretty sure Yves Rocher has bottled a host of angels with this beauty. It definitely worked for me :)

Oh is it ever beautiful! Fresh, soft spring lilacs, uhhmmm uhhmmm uhhmmm :) Touch of almonds in there as well, adds to the soothing part even more!
Smells like month of May, Lilacs festival anyone? :)
For an edt it's quite comforting and easy to wear anytime.
I'd like to see edp version of this, so I can smell it longer and stronger.

So very pretty.

The opening is a fresh and very convincing lilac, just like the flowers from the shrub that blooms in May in my garden each year.

Then there is what seems to me like a good blast of jasmine - quite indolic.

The almond slides in towards the end, a soft and slightly powdery whisper.

Good longevity on me, several hours at least, and moderate sillage.

Although the Pur Desir line is sadly discontinued, it sounds as if the new Lilas Mauve from Yves Rocher is similar - perhaps even the same fragrance? I see they were both done by Annick Menardo so maybe it's just the same juice in a new box. If so, wonderful!

I purchase this pure and cozy perfume from time to time because I adore the scent of natural lilac:) In general, that idea to produce clear simple natural scents is lovely - and yes, unfortunately, Yves Rocher does not produce this flower line anymore.

I love the smell of lilacs at any time of the year and as we know only in the spring we have the opportunity to smell this. With this eau de toilette I can enjoy this beautiful fragrance for all seasons. It is 100 % lilas . Something beautiful - pity that so very fragile. Is probably the most volatile EDT that I have so I use this only with vaseline jelly. I bought a 60 ml bottle at a bargain price 6 pounds
I use this product from 2 years only in the spring.

This is just wonderful. Lilac bushes blooming in May. So natural. I actually like it even better than French Lilac, the only other realistic lilac I've tried, as this one is a little softer and has less of the waxy quality of French Lilac. Beautiful scent.

Perfection *5 stars out of 5* - I'm not all about "niche+highend". There are some hidden treasures out there. This is one. An amazingly good Lilac-soliflore. A fragile spring-beauty. A big realistic bouquet of light purple lilacs. Superb lastingpower and with a very good sillage.

Perfumer: Annick Ménardo (the nose behind Guerlain's Bois d'Armenie, Le Labo's Patchouli 24, Bulgari Black, Dior's Hypnotic Poison & Bois D`argent. And most by Lolita Lempicka+many others)

This is an incredibly realistic lilac scent that is excellent for spring as it beautifully captures that euphoria and sense of enchantment of this season.

It is a soliflore and while the scent is a bit linear, the lilac is very enveloping and beautiful. The fragrance has okay lasting power and moderate sillage.

It has been discontinued in April 2012, so I'm lucky to have managed to stock up on two full size bottles.

Smells like the freshest lilacs ever. It's a solo note, not much depth, but if you bottled some lilacs, this is as close as you can get. The staying power is not there, but it's a nice pick-me-up, and because it is a single note, would be great for layering,

I have this one with the shower gel to match. Good thing too because the lasting power on this one (at least on me) is not long. The smell is wonderful though...so feminine. And I agree with some of you, it's wonderful to spray it on your linens and clothes...it's a calming scent.

I adore the smell of lilac so when I read the reviews about Pur Desir Lilas I had to order a bottle of it to see for myself whether it actually does smell of natural lilac or whether it would be a disappointment and smell artificial. Well, to my delight my bottle of it arrived yesterday and hooray - Pur Desir Lilas smells GORGEOUS! I have two lilac trees in my garden, which will be blossoming in the coming weeks now spring is almost here, so I can say for sure that Pur Desir Lilas really does capture the glorious heady, intoxicating scent of lilac. The almond adds a warm, slightly sweet, creaminess, even a slight sexiness.

On my skin this perfume lasts for a surprisingly long time, it can be worn anytime - day or night, for work or play - and the price is very reasonable for such a lovely perfume (and it smells so much more expensive than it costs!) so I'm thrilled to have found out about it. I can't recommend Pur Desir Lilas highly enough and hopefully it'll never be discontinued so I can always have it in my perfume collection! :-))

What I love about this perfume is, apparently, what other people hate. I usually don't care for minimalism but, in this case, I have to say that less is more. I love the fact that it smells JUST like lilacs, a scent so elegant, strong, peculiar and feminine that it can hardly be improved by mixing it with other scents (just like jasmine or gardenia). It's a very natural, fresh-yet-intense, unpretentious fragance. Its simplicity makes it perfect for almost any occasion, though I especially love spraying it on my skin on spring/summer mornings or evenings alike, just after I come out of the shower. Then I put on an itty-bity little flowery sundress, a pair of sandals and I walk out of the house feeling feminine, charming and sensual.
For a date or any other special evening event, I usually wear a more sophisticated perfume, like JPG Classique or Kenzo's Flower, but Pure Desir would work just fine too. It's not cheap or loud, just nice.
The down side to it is that it doesn't last long, but since it's not expensive (especially if you buy it on sale), I put it in my handbag and reapply it after a while.
What's also good about its simplicity is that I don't get tired of it. My mother got this as a present and she liked it a lot, but seeing as I had fallen in love with it, she gave it to me. It has become a total fav.

This smells like real lilac. Nice scent but as all Yves Rocher fragrances smells kind of cheap. Reminds me of spring, I would love to feel it in the air but not wear on myself. I tried it couple times but had some doubts and wasn't sure if I want to wear it. My husband said that I smell like a lilac tree and I gave it away. Not my cup of tea.

I have loved this fragrance for years. It smells remarkably like the real thing, without being too cloying or sweet. I don't get the powdery notes too much that others have mentioned.
This is a well balanced formula that doesn't tend towards the musty notes that some lilac scents have which can sometimes lean nearer to Night Scented Stock.
It is closer to the smell of younger blooms that are just starting to open.
A simple, elegant fragrance that smells wonderfully English.
What a pity they discontinued the Lily version of this which was just as good.

I bought this one because my dear husband loves the scent of lilac (and to say the truth it's one of the very few scents he can identify:)). I feel this very true lilac scent only for a while, after that it turns into a soft, warm almond, with a hint of freshness because of the lilac. I feel here wood (almond tree? sandal?), too, however there isn't any in the scent-pyramid. At first I thought 'it's okay' but the more I wear it, the more I love it. Sillage and longevity are good and if you spray it on hair or clothes, you can enjoy the lilac-scent longer. And yes, it's good to spray it in your room, too, to feel a little springtime:).

Those who say this smells of very natural lilacs are totally right - it does. Un-nuanced its true, but faithful. It made me realise something I had never consciously acknowledged before - I do not like lilac. It gives me a head ache. Those who do like lilac will love this. Shall I admit the horrible truth? I gave this to my husband's mother as if I had especially gone out to search heaven and earth to find it for her. She seemed happy - but at that stage she had not yet smelled it - may be my sister-in-law will be getting it for Christmas......

Like most of others said before this is one of the most realistic lilac scents i have ever came upon, i just couldn´t belive my nose, it was like i am sniffing a bush of lilac outside my window, BUT sadly like others from the same line thi one doesn´t last at all if you use it as fragrance alone. That is the biggest minus, so i am not willing to buy it just to have it, though it is very cheap actually. I like perfume to last at least couple of hours.

Very true lilac indeed, very fresh and very uplifting.

It's not a complicated perfume, just lilac with a sweet dry down of almond and that is already enough for everyday office wear.

I got a lot of compliments from my co-workers both men and women, but it doesn't have long lasting power, luckily it is not so expensive, so i purchased a small bottle and leave it at work to reapply in the afternoon and leave it to work the magic :)

I really like it and will repurchase for sure.

Never ever I liked any soliflore as much as this one. It is just pure bliss! And alas it lasts!!!!

When I was a little girl (maybe 8 years old) me and my 1 year older sister got enchanted by a lilac bushes so much that we climbed the fence into the garden where it grew and got plenty and plenty for our mum. We were on our way from our violin class and as we carried full arms of the heavenly blossoms we forgot our violins under the bushes... Luckily our dad found them there one day later.

This fragrance is our childhood lilac adventure :)revived.

PS: Pur desir de Lilas smells very well on fabric too. It does not develop into the almond musky softness but stays more floral. Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!

There are moments in our lives when we encounter a divine beauty, a glimpse of what heavens will smell and look like. I always have this feeling when I visit Centennial Lilac Gardens near Niagara Falls. As soon as I get out of the car, I am surrounded by the heavenly fragrance. There must be hundreds of lilac bushes growing in the field. When they are in full bloom, the view is breathtaking and unforgettable. There is no man-made fragrance that is capable to make me experience what I feel when I am walking through the rows of those gorgeous flowers and inhale their divine aroma.

From all lilacs fragrances I have tried, PUR DESIR DE LILAS is the only one that comes very close to this experience. The lilacs are very fresh and green in this scent like you have just picked them from the bush. The almonds blend very naturally and provide nice complement to the lilacs. This fragrance is perfect in its simplicity. I am completely in love with this scent. And though nothing can top up the real thing for me, this one is incredibly close. If you love lilacs, you have to give this a try. You will not regret it.

This is definitely not a soliflore on me, or maybe my lilac standards are too high. The oily almonds are all over the place! And there's something pretty green in there too, like lilac leaves maybe (though it actually smells more like violet leaves, which I'm more familiar with). Neither of these are bad things, but I won't be getting this to satisfy my lilac craving - somehow the total effect is not the refreshing spring air I'm looking for. Diorissimo is a much closer scent to true lilac - yes, lilac, not lily of the valley (though it's a true lotv as well)... well, at least my vintage stash is. I know it's an unfair comparison in a way, but considering that this YR lilac is now also pretty hard to find (in the US at least), I think I'l be sticking to the true, the original, the one and only...

THIS was my very first YR scent, and has always been my first love. When I was a child, the scent of lilacs gave me an extra boost of energy!! My favorite time of the entire year is the two weeks in late April or early May when they bloom. It is just NOT "summer" until the lilacs have released those heavenly essences into the air...

Part of their charm, to me, is the fact each flower is made up of a multitude of little blossoms all opening and gushing forth with the aroma of perfection, almost like a choir of floral song. I have dried many of these lilacs and keep them in apothecary jars in my bedroom. These, more than roses or anything else, smell like LOVE! *My first boyfriend used to pick them and bring them to me by throwing them in my open window*

In late 2005, I received a flyer from my sister, that she received in a package from another company, for Anti-aging face cream (Hag!); inside (on special) was the Lilas EDT (60ml) for $6.95, the lotion (250ml) for $2.95 and the body wash (200ml)for $2.50!!! That was the best $12.50 I ever spent...This was actually a subtle hint from her, as I always "snitched" her lilacs off her bushes for my own room!!

The catalog from YR describes PDdLilas as "a green floral with powdery notes with hints of almonds". Almonds? Well, I suppose. The nutty/woody sweetness really brings out the lush wonder of this amazing flower. Even now as I smell it-inhaling deeply, I can feel the early spring sun on my face and my heart quickens and my spirit sings with joy! This IS fresh, dark purple persian lilacs squeezed in a bottle to me, and I actually prefer it to the pure perfumed oil I have from TBS! The oil is a "truer" essence of lilacs, but has something in it that makes people think I have been drinking when I wear it! So, I just dab it on, now and then, when I am low in spirit, or depressed and before the cap is screwed back on; I am smiling, EVERY TIME! The green notes in this remind one, not only, of the gorgeous flowers, but the actual living bush with its leaves and slightly woody stems. If ever there was a flower that made me drunk with passion, it is the Lilac. And, if there was ever a company who captured the truest spirit of the Lilac...it is Yves Rocher. Thank you Yves, for this beautiful soliflore, and one of my favorite perfumes ever!!

Sillage: good
Longevity: very good
Overall: 5/5 A Perfect Lilac Scent!

Once (maybe twice) in your life you find a true, pure and absolute love. One of mine is this fragrance! If you love the smell of REAL lilacs in full bloom, THIS is something you should acquire before it, too, goes the way of Lys, Rose and Gardenia. I have backups of all the Lilas products, you never know with this House...

I love lilacs and this smells like true lilacs with a slight hint of sweet almond. And the lasting power is very good, on me it lasted the whole day.
But it's not varied, it turns a little bit powdery but as it is the same all the time I couldn't wear it very often not to get bored of it.
If you're a lilac-lover like me Pur Desir de Lilas is a must-have.

So far, this is the nicest and truest to life lilac scent that I've ever smelled! One small spritz stayed true to the flower for about three hours, then it evolved into a more powdery but still lilac-y skin scent- Sis, I found your Christmas gift!

Very poor staying power. More or less adequate, similar to real lilac, but a bit too powdery to wear it.
A better lilac scent is "While lilac", but it's an old Russian perfume, nearly impossible to find now.

I have a bunch of purple lilac in a vase on the table, and the bottle a bottle of this scent near it, and sprayed generously 2 minutes ago. The color is identical ( between the bottle and the real flowers), the scent is identical. So real. Identical in flavor, and consistency. Amazing. Great silage. Bad lasting power. For the price, what a good quality scent! Great for spring time! No drama, no fancy mixtures, no development. Completely linear lilac. I like it !

It is indeed one of the best lilac scents I have tried; the only one better than this is Highland Lilac of Rochester, but that one is VERY hard to get where I live. The sad thing about Pur Desir is the staying power (not so great). But otherwise I love it. Since I'm a bit obsessed with lilac, I'll try out other lilac perfumes as well, searching for my perfect one.

The closest thing to sniffing a bow of deeply scented lilac blooms.

I would describe this scent as very, very pretty & quite charming. The lilac is there in its completeness which includes that strange note found hidden in Hyacinths & lilac flowers. I was ready to pass this one by but it drew me in with its polaroid photo album of my early life. I found my nose glued to my wrist, memories flooding back as I inhaled.

It is a real memory-lane scent....happier, more colourful & carefree times of my youth, butterflies, sunshine, laughter, garden-hose showers, grass between the toes, daisy chains & bows of lilac blooms.

Even though the lasting power is very, very poor I will buy a bottle when YR send me their super offer-deals just so that I can walk out this spring with a smile on my face, looking forward to the summer.

If you want simple, carefree & pretty with a heavy dose of nostalgia you will love this.

Good lilac scent. I would say, it's pretty true to real lilac, although I might still be searching for my perfect lilac. This one is nice, but I do detect almonds which give slight sweetness to my lilac which I don't need. Another little thing is that it doesn't last as long on my skin than it does on my hair. However, hair lasting power is very nice, stayed overnight.

An adorable floral, fresh and energizing but not so long-lasting on my skin.

The truest lilac perfume I have ever smelled. Like many, it brings me back to my childhood. Obviously it is synthesized, as Lilac doesn't take well to extraaction, but it's so lovely, who cares?

When I was younger, I lived at my grandmother's house for a good six years or so. In her backyard were three lilac bushes, each of them almost 10 feet high and 6 feet wide. I remember playing in the backyard as a child in the spring with my brothers and getting whiffs of the lilacs every time the wind blew. This fragrance truly captures those moments of my childhood for me. A very nice scent with a sentimental value to me. :]

When I wore this I would get compliments from so many acquaintances, specially men, who seem to react well to light florals.
It's a pretty lilac scent, which makes you feel like spring and sunny days are already here.
I don't dislike it but in the end it started giving me a headache, like most florals, so that's the reason I won't purchase it again.

On the other hand, I don't recommend the body milk, its smell has nothing to do with the EDT, let alone true lilac.

I've always thought that lilac and jasmine perfumes are the most characterfull scents. So fresh, so feminine and clean too. This is an evidence for my hypothesis i think!

I got this fragrance as a free gift whilst ordering some YR products a couple of years ago. It surprised me positively with two things: staying power which is much better than in other YR fragrances and soft, simple lilac scent very alike to a real bouquet of flowers. It is also a great air freshener as it gives a long-lasting, heavenly smell all around the house. Nice!

We used to have a garden with a lilac tree, and I started loving this the scent back then. It reminds me of those happy days of childhood, so close and so far away at the same time.
It was only natural to fall in love with this fragrance at first sight.
I dont wear it very often now, but I like to have it on me sometimes when I'm in a sentimental mood, it also happens that I spray my bedlinen with it before I go to bed. Smells fanstastic!

I simply LOVE Pur Desir de Lilac!!! It's yummy and omg a LOT of guys told me they just loved this scent. Lilac by Yves Rocher seems to work like a magnet for men. Yes, it has some powder notes but it doesn't spoil the scent at all!!! Surprisingly, I find Lilac's staying power much better than any other Rocher's fragrance.

I think it is too powdery, not a true lilac scent. The lilac body wash and soap are better than the spray. Disappointed since I LOVE the other lilac items from Yves Rocher :(
(I have a new 2 oz bottle if anyone wants to trade.)
