Our Favorite Perfumes!

June 16, 2022


Team LIY

One of the questions we get asked the most here at LIY is about our favorite scents to wear! I feel you girl, it’s so nice to have a go-to scent – but sometimes it can be tough to know where to start with so many out there. We are here to share the fragrances that keep us spraying everyday and hope you love them too!

Check out more of our beauty favs here! 💖


Living in Yellow X Life in Lilac Draw Me In

The world was our oyster, and we ended up with this scent! After giving a list of scents I like, testing dozens of samples, and then trying some more – we landed on this perfect combination of feminine and masculine! Every time I smelled it, on everyone who tested it, it kept drawing me in and I couldn’t get enough!

Orders are placed exclusively through the Life in Lilac app, but it’s easy to download and even easier to use!

Jo Malone Silver Birch & Lavender

I am a big Jo Malone fan [my go-to is often the wood sage & sea salt] so when I saw this Nordstrom-exclusive scent be released last year that had lavender in the title, I knew I had to try it. I will admit I don’t notice the lavender so much in the scent as I expected to, however, I do get a strong woodsy scent thanks to the silver birch. It is more on the masculine side, so if you prefer more feminine scents, this may not be the one for you!


Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb

Feminine, floral scent with Patchouli and Vanilla notes to give it depth and a slightly richer smell. This gives the scent a rough, rich but feminine and luxurious smell.

Fragrance Notes:
Top: cattleya orchid, freesia, centifolia rose
Middle: sambac jasmine, osmanthus
Base: patchouli, vanilla.Mood: Exuberant, positive, confident.


Thé Noir 29 Eau de Parfum LE LABO

Thé Noir 29 Eau de Parfum LE LABO

Hannah, from the team, wore this one at the office and I immediate HAD to have it! Note: I’m someone who prefers warm, muskier, woody scents, so if you prefer floral, this might not be the one for you! It’s light, fresh, and has a mix of bergamot, fig and bay leaves, cedarwood, vetiver and musk. Basically, all of my favorite scents in one! It’s described as “citrus, rich, soft, fresh and sensuous”!

– Top: bergamot, bay leaves, black tea, fig.
– Middle: hay, tobacco.
– Base: cedarwood, vetiver, musk.

Life In Lilac Heart Throb

Heart Throb Rollerball Perfume

Life In Lilac describes this magical scent best! “The synergy created by pairing our Heart Throb Candle and Perfume is an aromatic conjuring of Oud and Amber. Expanding this addictive fragrance profile of sweet musk, leather, and spice to a wearable companion allows us to conjure peace and tranquility at home and beyond.

THIS IS A CLEAN PRODUCT.  Paraben & Phthalate Free!

Oh, my heart!  Where do we begin with this nuanced scent?  Oud is known as the “wood of the Gods,” and is it ever!  Oud is used for meditation and is said to bring tranquility and peace to any space.  Pairing Oud with dark amber notes creates a seductive throw, filling your space with a range from sweet musk, to leather and spices.”


Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt

Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt

A few years ago a girlfriend of mine was walking in front of me and I HAD to know what perfume she was wearing. None other than Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt. It smelled fresh and clean with a hint of masculinity to it! It was probably a bit creepy how often I was smelling her, ha! Now several years later, I’m wearing it every day and still loving it each and every time I put it on! If you don’t love floral scents and love a bit of masculinity, this one is for you!

Style: Mineral, woody.
– Top: ambrette seeds.
– Middle: sea salt.
– Base: sage.
