Alkemia Lilacs Along the Winding Drive is a May evening, when the lilac bushes are heavy and drooping with the rich, sweet purple blooms, a little breeze with the last of the afternoon rain in the air, a dusty pebbled driveway, slightly rusty porch swing and a small handful of late blooming violets. 

From the brand: 

"In the dooryard fronting an old farm-house near the white-wash’d palings,
Stands the lilac-bush tall-growing with heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
With many a pointed blossom rising delicate, with the perfume strong I love,
With every leaf a miracle—and from this bush in the dooryard,
With delicate-color’d blossoms and heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
A sprig with its flower I break."

- Walt Whitman

Alkemia Lilacs Along the Winding Drive Reviews

Indiescent library - "Lilacs are very nostalgic for me, lilac bushes surrounded my childhood home. That narcotic drowsing sweetness permeates my youth. It is VERY hard to find a good lilac scent. This is the best. It actually reminds me most of how the lilacs smelled after a good rain. This one rends my heart…Beautiful!"

Indiescent Library - "God, this is beautiful. Rainy violets and lilac. I don’t get powdery or metallic notes from this at all. It stays fresh and floral throughout."

Reddit - "Swoon. This is a great floral- something I will throw on in the morning after a quick shower when I run out the door. There's nothing complicated about it, just lilac... It doesn't morph into something else, its not too heavy or sweet, its lovely in its simplicity."

Reddit - "if you like driving on a warm summer night through a rural area with the windows down just to sniff the flowers, you will love this perfume. It smells exactly like that."

Alkemia - "t's exactly as advertised, lilac bushes flowering at the height of spring, with some subtle tones of other spring flowers in the background. Reminds me of my parents' house when I was a child in Ontario."
