L de Lolita Perfume Review

Would you like to step into the world of fairy tale fragrances with me....?


Lolita Lempicka is the pseudonym of Josiane Maryse Pividal, a French fashion designer. The pseudonym is meant to be an homage to the novelist Vladimir Nabokov famed for his novel 'Lolita' and the Art Deco painter Tamara de Lempicka.
The house of Lolita Lempicka was established in 1983, as a line of women's fashions, and Bridal designs inspired by fairy tales, princesses and the romantic fashions of times past.We can see that inspiration in her perfumes.
Take some time out and visit her site HERE 
Famed for it's fairy-tale unique bottles, Lolita lempicka has introduced us to the world of fantasy and enchantment through her remarkable scents. 

Lolita Lempicka

Today, I will be reviewing a beautiful perfume from her collection called L de Lolita. 

This is what Lolita has to say about this gorgeous perfume: A treasure from the depths of the sea: Like a randomly shaped pebble, the aquamarine bottle is in the form of a heart and beckons to be held. This jeweled bottle protects different treasures from the depths of the sea in its golden net…

A mythical mermaid protected by the sea 
After creating a fairytale for women, Lolita Lempicka transports us to a legendary world of a dangerously feminine myth. Between desire and abandon, it reveals an enigmatic femininity, that attracts and bewitches. "This is the fragrance that I have always dreamt of. The fragrance that is true to the memories of my skin gently kissed by the sun and the waves, it leaves a taste of salt on my lips, my everlasting fragance". Lolita Lempicka.

My Review:
I have this beautiful fragrance in a 10ml roller ball which comes in a vial that reminds me of gently lapping waves, the cap a golden net, and a beautiful bejeweled  L charm dangling from it of buried treasure under the sea.
 A whimsical work of art. This is the second perfume from designer Lolita Lempicka and is a combination of Bergamot, Bitter orange, Vanilla, Everlasting flower, Cinnamon bark, Tonka Bean, sandalwood and Musk. Like changing tides, the notes in this scent change seamlessly once applied. It is very well blended and the bitter orange and bergamot is creamy, not overpowering. I do get some warm cinnamon with just a hint of salted caramel. I must say the nautical theme in the advertisements and of the bottle is not misleading. There is a slightly salty note in this perfume that does remind you of the sea. I don't know where the salt is coming from, but the website says it's the immortal/everlasting flower that lends the perfume it's salty beachy note. The musk balances out the rich comforting vanilla sweetness of this enchanting perfume and lends a perfect finishing note. It's a deliciously sweet/spicy and comforting scent for when it's chilly outside. the longetivity is 10+ hours on me.
Perfume Category: Oriental Vanilla
Top Notes: Bergamot, Bitter Orange, Cinnamon Bark
Middle Notes: Everlasting Flower, Vanilla 
Base Notes: Tonka Bean, Mysore Sandalwood and Musk

Truly magical.....I think this perfume is exactly how a mermaid should smell like....

Great review of L de Lolita Lempica! It is all lemon cake on me! I also like the original, licorice in it is so nice :) I don't currently have a bottle of either, would love to get a 10 ml roller ball too :)

Pandora`s Box said...

@Nivedita: Haha! Good for you. It's not a good obsession trust me :P Yes the bottles are gorgeous.

@Sidrah: I love it too. WHat a wonderful gift for your birthday.

@Rakhshan:Perfect description 'Magic in a bottle' Thanks for stopping by.

@Su I just tested the SI Lolita. It's not a gourmand and very different from the others. It's light and fresh and the bottle is soooo beautiful. A four leaf clover and looks way better than the pictures. How about getting a miniature set that has all three? Tempted? ;)
