This is our second Feedback Friday. If you missed our first, please read about Lemon Blueberry or share your feedback on that fragrance. (If you’d still like to try lemon blueberry, it’s available–along with this week’s fragrance–for the next two weeks.)

Feedback Friday is our way of sharing a fragrance or flavor you might not have tried before by offering a free sample that you can add to your next order. It’s also a way for you to share your opinions if you’ve already tried it (or come back and share once you’ve received a sample).

What do Crabtree and Evelyn’s Wisteria Eau de Parfum, 5th Avenue by Elizabeth Arden, Fleur D’interdit for Women by Givenchy, and Lancome Tresor all have in common? Each of these fragrances has notes of Lilac. You cannot escape the scent of Lilacs in springtime here in Maine. In late May when spring is (really and truly) here and I can finally open all the windows, the fragrance wafts into the house on the warm breeze. I have always loved this scent, so it’s been in my fragrance line since the beginning. I’ve written about lilac before, and even before that. You can see it’s my “spring fever” fragrance.

Last year’s fragrance trend seemed to be toward florals, with lots of bridal showers and baby showers favoring Rose, Lily of the Valley, our own Bridal Bouquet blend, and Lilac. These fragrances still seem to be in demand in 2010, along with the fruity florals. Our Lilac is not as heavy a floral as jasmine or gardenia, or even rose. To me, it has a sweetness and a hint of green that makes me think of the cut bouquets I’m always tempted to share.

If you’ve tried our lilac fragrance, please leave your comments below. If you’d like to try it, add one to your order. And then please come back and share your thoughts!

(Incidentally, Lilac is showing up in more than fragrances these days: Pantone’s spring 2010 report included Violet, a lilac-purple hue predicted to appear in home and fashion this spring. And Lilac is a popular color in makeup and most notably in nail color this spring, as well. So it’s a perfect trendy choice for all spring and early summer events!)

Lilac is available in:
hand creams
bath gel (with violet jojobas for gentle exfoliation)
sugar scrub (also with violet jojobas)
bath salts
gift sets
