Rating: I have to second the thought's of another comment. I was so worried it would have the "old perfume" smell but it really doesn't. It's fresh and the second I smelled it it reminded me of the lilac bushes in my childhood neighbourhood. Perfect for summer/spring scents. Would 100% recommend if you like lilacs.

Rating: awesome scent. When i ordered it i was afraid its gonna have a powdery 'old perfume' scent to it. but i was impressed to find a lovely floral scent with a hint of honey! Lilac bushes are pretty much all over the place where i'm from and i think it comes quite close.
Rating: Smells amazing. Just like fresh lilacs. Worked out great in my soy candles.

Rating: I like quite a few of NDA's fragrance oils, but this one reminds me of moth balls. I have used it in CP soap at 1 ounce ppo and 0.5 ounce ppo, and the fact that I used half as much in my second batch didn't take away the moth ball scent. I have also let the batches sit for 6 and 4 months now, and the scent is still there. I have since used it blended with other floral FO's, and it can make a nice blend, so I will use it for that.

Rating: I love this one! Smells just like lilacs! I love it!
By:Nasstassia, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Feb-2014
Rating: Very nice scent of lilac but changed color and seized like crazy in CP soap.
Rating: This is a terrific scent! If you like Lilacs, you will love this! I can't smell the Lilies in it though. Maybe because they are so similar in scent. I use it in parfumes and bath salts. Fantabulous!

Rating: I cp this i was able to do a gradient soap separating the colors and adding the FO right before i poured each layer...mild smelling
Rating: Cold Process Soap makers beware! This scent caused my soap to sieze worse terribly! I read the reviews from other posters some of whom said they experienced this. I had my molds ready but it was barely any use. It was a huge mess. I tosssed the oil in the garbage and will probably end up throwing the soap out too. What a waste.

Rating: Smells wonderful. Seized in my cp soap immediately(oils/lye @100degrees)and turned a light orangey beige colour, so I am trying to saved it by hp method. Fragrance oils are usually trial and error. Will still by for soy candles as it is a great scent, therefore will give 3 stars.

Rating: Whoa! If you want the smell of lilacs and lillies, look no further. This not only smells strong, but it holds exceptionally well.
By:John, London, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Aug-2012
Rating: Very true scent. Smells like my backyard in spring! More lilac than lily, though.
By:Heather, Burlington, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-May-2011
Rating: While I was making soaps, the smell of lilac was overpowering. I love lilac scent, but I was thinking it would be too much for anyone to want to shower with (I put 5 ml for 1 pound of soap). But when the soaps were hard and I took them out of the mold, the scent was really toned down. I had put dried crushed vervain from my garden, and it came out to give it a more earthy, natural smell.
I would of liked for this scent to have more of the Lily scent present.

Rating: I bought 7 different oils for my first purchase from NDA. I needed some fragrances for the massage oils I like to make and also for perfumes.
I used this with the Champaka FO in a bubble bath and loved the result. The scent was soothing and delicate, which is perfect to soak in after a long day. Only gave it 4 out of 5 simply because I would have liked more of the lilac scent and less of the lilies, but still a great product.
I can't wait to use this and the other oils in gifts for the holidays this year!

Rating: True lilac scent. Very nice. Take care when using in cp soaps, it does accelerate trace quite a bit. Just be ready with your molds! But it does smell nice!
By:Marie, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Jun-2012
Rating: Reminds me of my childhood when we had a lilac tree in our backyard. It's slightly too musky for me.

Rating: I just received this FO today, and was so taken with the scent I used it immediately in a tea cup candle! I currently have it burning and my room smells exactly like a room full of fresh cut lilacs and lilies. I will definitely repurchase in the 100ml size as I'm sure I'll be out of my sample in no time at all!
Rating: The bath sets I made with this FO was a huge hit. I made some bath bombs, bath salts and have added it to the NDA shower gel base.
The blooms of lilacs and lilies do not last long, but with this FO from NDA, the beautiful scent is always accessible. 5+ for this FO!

Rating: I can't make candle products fast enough of this one. I am selling my home and this is the scent I am using. It has become my top seller!

Rating: Love this one! Good scent - not too heavy! Well liked by those who try it!
Rating: I love this scent! It is very fresh, uplifting and inviting. Used it in a melt and pour soap and it was a total hit!

Rating: This is a lovely scent, very floral, and uplifting, gives a good throw in my mp soaps.
By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Jan-2010
Rating: This is a beautiful, light, super floral scent. I personally find it smells mostly of lily of the valley, with a bit of lilac. A little goes a long way. (I tried it in a body glitter gel made with Aloe Vera and glycerin as well as in the M&P Suspending Soap Base.)
Rating: WOW!!! I was really amazed by this scent! I love lilacs and the lilies just add to the whole smell! A perfect scent and I really love it!!! WOW!!! :)
