So I finally decided (about 1/3 of the way through my bottle) that Lilac Vegetal is just nasty. The scent was intreguing for a bit, and does smell a bit floral, but man it is just too strong and too cloying.
Not sure what I will do with the rest of the bottle, but it won't be used on my face. I finally just came to the conclusion that Pinaud does not agree with me in general. No more money will be spent on their scents.
I also must point out that Lilac Vegetal is just diluted alcohol with fragrance and coloring. Look at the ingredients list, not even that Propylene Glycol stuff is present. Very disappointing.
