Review: New Lilly Pulitzer Fragrances

Lilly Pulitzer,
the lifestyle brand influenced by the authentic style of Palm Beach, takes a colorful leap into the world of beauty with the introduction of fragrance. Launching with a wardrobe of three fragrances, each scent uniquely captures the essence of Lilly Pulitzer from a feminine floral to a juicy citrus to a fun-in-the-sun beach scent. The collection embraces each facet of the Lilly Lovers™ lifestyle and includes fragrance for body and home. The three scents were created to offer a scent-sational way to experience the emotion of Lilly Pulitzer in a bottle. Available in November 2008, the fragrance collection provides yet another way for consumers to incorporate the brand into their lifestyle. $48 for 1.7 oz. eau de parfum/ $68 for 3.4 oz eau de parfum.

We see the world in pink and green! Enjoy any day with this delightfully pink, pretty and flirty celebration of feminine style and gusto. The fragrance unfolds with notes of sparkling pear nectar, watery pink freesia and lush gardens. At the heart is a bouquet of rose, lily blossom and sun-drenched violets. The party wraps up with warm amber and sensual musk. This wet floral captivates every Lilly Lover™ whether shopping, lounging, or entertaining. Wear pink and make the boys wink! I liked this one a lot. My husband thought it was agreeable. I like the pear accent.

At Lilly Pulitzer® we believe in squeezing the juice out of life! This signature citrus floral is bright and playful with a whimsical charm. The fragrance is spiked with top notes of exotic lychee, juicy pink grapefruit and candied red currant that mingles with spring lotus blossom and wild rose petals. And the fragrance finishes with sun-drenched woods and water musk. This fresh scent appeals to all of the colorful, imaginative and confident Lilly Lovers™.
My husband and I liked this one the best. It's very sweet and fruity.

Palm Beach isn’t just a place; it’s a state of mind. Escape to the beach no matter the season and remind yourself of a time of fun and relaxation. Beachy opens with notes of sliced watermelon, sunny citrus and marine air accord. The heart enchants with jasmine blossom, tiare flower and lush frangipani. The sun sets on the fragrance with a blend of sea crystals, golden amber and sweet vanilla. Follow the sun! This one reminds me of Giorgio Armani. It's very strong. My husband said it smelled like "old lady" though not in a good or bad way. I mean I can imagine my mom wearing it and liking it. The scent is nice, a tad overwhelming in my opinion, but I don't know if the name is accurate. It's not beachy to me.

The custom designed bottle was inspired by the via’s of Palm Beach (Via Mizner was the home of Lilly’s first fruit stand). The fragrance packaging boasts colorful and eclectic prints designed exclusively for the fragrance collection. Each print was created to communicate the olfactive category of the three fragrances tying both color and imagery to the scent story.
