Top notes: Plum and Gardenia. Middle notes: Carnation and Indian Tuberose. Base notes: Rosewood and Honey Accord.
The plum is the star of this melancholy, evocative floral. But it’s flanked by a spicy honey-tuberose. A woody, enthralling honey-tuberose. Byredo is quite Scandinavian with its sweet spice recalling Swedish ginger snaps. But it’s its sadness and voluptuous charm that makes Casablanca Lily such a rare niche perfume. It transcends time to become something better than its debut. It’s a brilliant piece of olfactory art.
