If you are looking for a lily of the valley fragrance and don’t care for Diorissimo, Muguet des Bois by Coty is worth a try. I have not been able to find a list of the notes online, but this is a soliflore and I don't smell any notes other than lily of the valley with a touch of green. It is a sweeter, cleaner, less sparkling fragrance than Diorissimo, and has a slight hint of soap.
Edmond Roudnitska, the master nose who created Diorissimo, said of Muguet des Bois:
I remembered that Coty had a lily that was called Muguet des Bois. No better lily note was ever made. It pushed the green note of the flower. As a lily note, it was magnificent. It was much better than the one I had made myself. I wondered how they had managed to create such a masterpiece in the Thirties, with so little means. But it never became very successful, because it wasn’t a perfume one could wear. (quoted in Michael Edwards Perfume Legends, p. 113)
I have been puzzling over his statement that it was unwearable. I vastly prefer Diorissimo, but Muguet des Bois is a less complicated, more approachable fragrance. Perhaps he simply meant that its simplicity rendered it not interesting enough to wear? Another possibility, of course, is that it has been reformulated beyond recognition in the intervening years.
It is insanely cheap, and you should have no trouble finding it at an online discounter for less than $15. Another lily of the valley worth trying is Caron Muguet du Bonheur, which I will review another day.
I will not be able to post again until Saturday, hope to see you then!
