Guess when the term 'lily' is used in perfumery, people usually mean muguet, not lily, right? eg. 'lily propanol', Lilial, Lilytol, Lilyflore, etc. (or in odor profile descriptions, where I find 'lily' while muguet is meant.) Does this not-that-smart usage originate from english speakers who take 'lily of the valley' as the archetype of a lily, not knowing that this plant has not much in common with an actual lily?
