Lalique are relaunching their aquatic-oriental from 1995, Nilang. As fragrance developers are more and more interested in wooing the Asian markets, it is à-propos to see second life given to this composition inspired by the lotus flower.
"Take a wander through the exquisite water gardens of the Orient with the Lalique Nilang Eau de Parfum, an aquatic-oriental fragrance with an opulent character.
The magnificence of the beautiful lotus flower is the inspiration for this scent. Its rich symbolism evokes powerful meanings in many different cultures, and simultaneously represents purity, harmony, and spiritual growth. It is also said to induce a sense of bliss."....
The scent was initially created by perfumer Gérard Anthony. The composition attempts to establish a balance between transparent and rich facets while offering gourmand undertones.
To mark the relaunch, a new packaging has been designed for the eau de parfum and a luxurious pure parfum version is bottled in an elaborate crystal flacon for collectors done in the trademark Lalique figurative style. The bottle reportedly necessitated the work of four master glassmakers while the topper required the collaboration of no less than five master glassmakers.
"This voluptuous fragrance marries fruits with heady flora and rays of gourmand. Fresh and delicate Lotus flower intermingles with the brightness of Melon in the top notes. A luminous heart of Freesia and Clove Flower are enhanced with the tartness of Blueberry. A delectable dry down of Praline and Patchouli seal the seduction.
Top Notes: Lotus, Peach, Mandarin, Melon
Heart Notes: Freesia, Jasmine, Clove Flower, Blueberry
Base Notes: Praline, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Musk"
