Frederic Malle Lys Mediterranee was launched in 2000, created by Edouard Flechier, and it is a gorgeous, fresh lily - a little salty, a teeny bit of vanilla, just smooth lily that is beautiful to wear. It will take you to a warm, sandy beach, the salt on your skin, with the smell of exotic, pungent lilies nearby. Notes of Ginger lily, Lilium Speciosum, lily of the valley, angelica root, orange flower, water lily, salicylates, ambrette seeds and musk.
Reviews of Frederic Malle Lys Mediterranee
From Bois de Jasmin - " it shines like dew drops on a large white flower floating in a bowl of water. Its heady sweet aroma is underscored by the succulent verdancy and aquatic transparency, giving a sensation of a cold waxy petal and golden pollen that spills leaving a dusty trail."
From Now Smell This - "Many lily perfumes turn plasticky or soapy or overly sweet; Lys Méditerranée is a welcome exception. It opens with an intriguing introduction: a bitter orange-leaf note, a roughened green thread that leads the way the fragrance's creamy white lily center. The fragrance's second phase surrounds the lily with a complex salt-air accord. I'm not usually a fan of marine effects in perfume, but this one is sophisticated and realistic at the same time. It also seems to lift the floral notes off the skin on its "breeze."
From Australian Perfume Junkies - "Lys Mediterranee smells luscious yet cool and aloof. I think the angelica and the water flowers all give a light wet swampiness that keeps the very tidy florist shop vibe from being too antiseptic clean. It may also be the lily, very asiatic lily stem as you cut it, or the leaves if you break them off. It’s a smell I used to love when arranging flowers."
