Tilia by Marc-Antoine Barrois – The scent of summer

Just a few weeks ago, I presented my favorite fragrances for the current season in the article Spring Vibes – Top 5 spring fragrances and now an eau de parfum flutters onto my desk that would probably have fitted perfectly into this list. Tilia by Marc-Antoine Barrois is a freshly launched creation that revolves around the lime blossom, which for me smells like spring and summer more than almost any other.

As usual, I’m linking you to my articles on Marc-Antoine Barrois below. In addition to reviews of the Parisian couturier’s previously launched fragrances, you will also find an interview that I had the pleasure of conducting with the fashion designer three years ago:

Tilia – Simple. Sunny. Smiling.

All of Marc-Antoine Barrois’ creations to date have revolved around leather in one form or another. From supple soft suede to strong smooth leather, there is something for every fan of this fragrance genre. Tilia stands out from this leather collection, as it is the brand’s first floral fragrance (also recognizable by the red bottle neck), which – like all previous compositions – was created by French perfumer Quentin Bisch.

Tilia is a reminder of a never-ending summer. It was inspired by childhood memories of Marc-Antoine Barrois himself, who spent every summer with his parents and siblings on vacation in the countryside with his grandparents and has now had this carefree time transformed into an olfactory experience by Quentin Bisch.

The perfumer used the ingredients lime blossom, broom, jasmine, vetiver, heliotrope, woods and ambroxan. It is intended to be a sunny, summery and dreamy creation, about which Marc-Antoine Barrois says: “The scent of happy days, like the dream of sunny vacations that last forever.”

Simple. Sunny. Smiling. Tilia is the scent of a summer that lasts forever. A scent of vacations that go on and on. Long lunches with friends, in the countryside, at a large wooden table. Flowers that never stop blooming.

Lovely, sunny and beautiful, Tilia shines from the very beginning with delicate yet present notes of lime blossom, accompanied by golden yellow and honeyed broom. Is that enchanting? Definitely! As a self-confessed fan of lime blossom, I have to admit that Tilia immediately captured my heart. The creamy, milky nuances of jasmine accentuate the beautiful, summery, sunny floral bouquet of lime and broom and ensure longevity and depth, while the vetiver, also creamy in appearance, brings gently earthy accents to the composition. A lovely hint of vanilla joins in later and announces the arrival of heliotrope, which blends into the creation in a wonderfully harmonious and atmospheric way. Tilia gradually glides into the base, where soft, powdery notes spread throughout the fragrance and gradually fade away. It’s great! 💛

Tilia by Marc-Antoine Barrois is a velvety-soft and powdery-floral fragrance based around the lime tree, which is the star of the olfactory stage in this composition in a very unpretentious and incredibly charming way. Perfect for all fans of lime blossom, for friends of lovely floral and gentle creations that have a certain presence and very good longevity and are at the same time wonderfully uncomplicated and pleasant to wear. If you are still looking for a really beautiful fragrance for spring and summer, you should definitely put this eau de parfum at the top of your must-try list. Marc-Antoine Barrois and Quentin Bisch once again impress with this collaboration and their first floral creation based around one of the most beautiful summer flowers.

Bereits 2010 gingen so einige Blogbeiträge auf mein Konto. Dann war ich „kurz“ weg – sechs Jahre. Umso mehr freut es mich, dass ich nun wieder die Chance bekomme, mein Näschen im Dienste der Duftrezension schnuppern zu lassen und eifrig in die Tasten zu hauen. Was Nischendüfte angeht, habe ich damals übrigens schnell Feuer gefangen. Meine Ausbildung tat dazu ihr Übriges: Als diplomierte Biologin kenne ich mich nicht nur mit Fauna und Flora, sondern auch recht gut mit der Herstellung von Ölen und Extrakten aus, was den Reiz der Parfumwelt natürlich noch größer macht.
