Fragrance Review: Jil by Jil Sander

You might know Jil Sander as a German designer with a minimalistic style, and that's exactly the kind aesthetic you'll get with her new fragrance, Jil ($58—$70), a floral amber that just launched last week. The scent, which has powdery characteristics, contains top notes of pink pepper and tangerine for a bit of brightness, with lavender mellowing it out. At the heart is where you get most of the action, with lily of the valley bringing a hint of sweetness, orris lending an earthiness, and heliotrope providing a musky quality. To round it off, musk, vanilla, and ambergris make for a slightly exotic, sensual finish. To find out what I thought about the fragrance, just keep reading.

As the fragrance wore longer and longer, dare I say that I got a bit of Play-Doh essence? Not in a bad way, just in a more of a subtle, slightly sweet and almondy kind of way. As for the packaging, it's striking in its own right, as it's got those distinctive clean lines for which Jil Sander is known. If you like powdery scents that aren't too heady, I think Jil is worth a try. It's comforting without being too sleepy and fresh without being too in-your-face bright — and would work nicely for both work and play.
