Byredo Casablanca Lily was launched in 2019. Part of the Night Veils collection, this is an extrait.
From Byredo's description - "Casablanca Lily was inspired by the thriving city that rises on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. From its Berber roots to its colonial heritage, Casablanca’s modern identity is a mix of diverse cultures, a place in constant change between tradition and modernity. Given time, the city unravels itself, revealing the most amazing corners, a vibrant kaleidoscope of Moroccan life found nowhere else. The fragrance surrounds you like the elegance of the city that inspired it: abundance, richness and grandeur combined."

Fragrantica: "I think this is a beautiful floral focused perfume where the floral mix is not too sharp nor too heavy thanks to the slightly sweet side of it.
The sweetness is not intense in any way, and it makes the whole scent more round, appealing and lends it a sexy feeling."
