Until recently I was on an exhausting quest that prolonged for years for finding the impossible: a sweet and edible scent, but at the same time extremely refined, alluring, elegant AND not worn by everyone. And then I read about Lira (launched in 2011) and it sounded way to good and promising to be true. Well, the rumors and all the positive reviews proved to be true, and actually it exceeded my expectations. Many fume heads find Lira to be almost identical with L by Lolita Lempicka and Tendre Madeleine by Laurence Dumont which is fine and admirable, but at a closer look when I did first a side by side test (I own a small bottle of L purchased long before Lira and ordered a sample of Tendre Madelaine) it became immediately obvious that Lira not only smelled a lot better in comparison with her budget friendly sisters, but overcomes them also in terms of longevity and it filled the room with a divaesque presence that might be not so easy to top. So if you`re craving caramels and cookies of exquisite quality, home made more precisely done by talented hands, Lira gives you these with much more generosity, grace and style.
The charming character of Lira is based on a sunny and incredibly mellifluous blend of savory citruses, a fine lavender and a joyful bunch of fresh jasmines all laid lavishly on an impressive vanilla & cinnamon bed, being therefore an absolutely big gourmand scent.
