Wen Spring Honey Lilac Eau de Parfum

I purchased Wen Spring Honey Lilac Eau de Parfum recently which I think is grossly overpriced at $118 (I got it on sale for $98 big whoop!). I love the idea of these seasonal fragrances that Wen has been launching lately, but their pricing for the fragrances seems a little off to me. I don’t think the brand really fits into the niche world, and I wouldn’t call it a designer fragrance either.

On that note, I will say Spring Honey Lilac is quite delightful especially if you’re currently shopping a light, cheerful fragrance for Spring!

Let’s take a look!

I’ve heard a lot of poor reviews about Wen’s fragrance collection, but Spring Honey Lilac might just be the exception to the rule as this was quite well made. This comes housed in a very large 3.4 oz clear, tall square bottle with a pretty lilac label that decorates the bottle.

It’s a light but lasting fragrance for floral lovers. It’s actually marketed as a unisex fragrance, but I’m doubtful men will really enjoy this one as it does come across very feminine. So if you’re a guy, and you like light, fresh, clean feminine florals you’ll be fine with it but if you prefer something that’s a touch more warming this might not be for you.

Wen Spring Honey Lilac Fragrance

I typically do not like straight florals. I tend to navigate towards gourmand florals myself, but this is quite lovely and ideal for Spring. It contains notes of lilac, hyacinth, and honey but for the most part the lilac does dominate. For me, this smells like sitting in a garden in the morning during the Spring. That moment when the grass is covered in dewiness, and you can smell the strong fragrance of flowers in the background. This is very clean, very fresh, and very full on lilac! It’s what purple smells like to me! If you’re doing a floral fragrance it can sometimes come across nauseating or overkill or at least to my nose it can. This is not a headache inducing fragrance. The lilac is soft, delicate, and very fresh and clean. I think the honey adds a tiny touch of sweetness here that could be overlooked if you aren’t thinking about it.

I’m disappointed by the price, this is quite delightful and has a long wear with an intimate throw. If you’re looking for a Spring-like fragrance, this is it.

    I like the sound of this, as I love lilac, but was surprised at the price, especially when I saw Wen. All I could think of after that point were the shampoo commercials.

      I’m very surprised at the price of his new fragrance as well! They don’t really fit into the niche mold and they aren’t quite designer so at $98 I’m kinda on the fence! I will say you get a large bottle for the price but still…! Ouch!

    I love lilac too! And it is a harder to find fragrance as everything seems to be lavender (blech personally! Sorry to you lavender lovers!) Does this truly have a lilac scent? I think the price tag will probably totally kill it for me…. but I may be able to put it on my wish list!

    • Isabella Muse

      It’s a true lilac not lavender at all! A little sweetness added with the honey but the lilac note dominates!

      It is a true lilac scent. I am not a lover of many floral fragrances, but I love the smell of lilac bushes when they bloom!
      This fragrance oddly makes me feel refreshed and think of awakening to a dewy spring morning, but it is also calming to me. It might be because I associate lilac bushes with happy peaceful memories so it is just my take on it. ๐Ÿ™‚
