Description and usage notes:

An expensive but very effective alternative to the soon-to-be banned Lyral and perhaps also to Lilial.

Description from Firmenich: “LILYFLORE® is a beautiful muguet floral note between Hydroxycitronellal, Lilial®, and Lyral®.LILYFLORE® has a long lasting floral effect with substantial volume and excellent stability. It brings a moist fresh note, similar to Lyral®, in green florals.”  You can read more about their suggested  use levels, performance in different media and so on in the specification sheet provided in the Documents section below. 

Unlike the many other muguet materials this one has the tenacity, and abiltiy to work in traces, to rival Lyral.  Being an alcohol, unlike most muguet materials, which are aldehydes, it is much more stable both in storage and in a variety of media.  Recommended usage levels are from traces to 1%, perhaps as much as 5% of the concentrate.  It is effective alongside cheaper muguet materials at levels of 0.1% or even less, giving it a good price-to-performance ratio, despite its relatively high price.

Despite many similarities to Lyral it isn’t a direct replacement on its own but does give aspects to a replacer that are not available from other materials.  It forms part of the Pell Wall Lyral Replacer.

    As mentioned by Chris, Lilyflore will soon become part of the working perfumers palette as a ‘must have’ when Lyral and Lilial are regulated further.

    I feel that Lilyflore is not a like for like replacement and sits between these Muguet odourants.

    It’s power and beauty should not be underestimated.

    I am currently working with this material in a number of formulas,; Iris, leather, oceanic, LOTV, white floral bouquets and as a general floraliser. Lilyflore is also working very well with sandal bases. Try it in combination with precyclemone B and melafleur… A trace of Algenone PB/SP/ Algenone White or Ultrazur (or any number of marine products supplied by Pell Wall – Scentenal for example). Original accords can be built with Floralozone and Veloutone also.

    It has now become a go to product for such a wide range of applications.

    The closest muguet​ ​note​ ​to Lyral that I’ve tested.

    Unfortunately, Lyral tends to produce cough on me, no matter how much diluted it is… So…even not a direct replacement, I’ve found it a plausible substitute that has the same nice muguet and moist effect on a composition as lyral, without the side effect on me and the restrictions by IFRA. Really substantive.
