Lolita Lempicka Fleur Défendue

My favourite fragrance house has always been Lolita Lempicka.  There is something magical in the way their perfume smell, often with masculine vibe hidden behind sweet feminine notes and feminine designed bottles.

Fleur Défendue is a discontinued scent by Lolita Lempicka. The scent was launched in 2008 and the fragrance was created by perfumer Annick Menardo, the talent behind Hypnotic Poison & Bvlgari Black, the smokey rubber and black tea cult hit during the late 90s.

Fleur Défendue, which means Forbidden Flower, is a flanker to the original Lolita Lempicka. I find it to be a little different from the original Lolita, where licorice and smokey hints of tobacco notes lurks behind violets and sweet cherry notes. Fleur Défendue is a little more crisp, a little more green with blends of floral notes that dries down to a powdery, woody scent. It is not as sweet as the original Lolita Lempicka, it is also lighter, with medium projection and lasting power.



As it starts to dry down, the cherry notes becomes more noticeable, though the scent stays close to the skin, making it more of a skin scent. If you find Lolita Lempicka to be too overpowering, you're probably going to love this more, though personally I prefer the original for it's smokey, gothic vibe. The only downside is this had been discontinued for a while, which makes it harder to get on the market. But if you do stumbled upon this, do give it a try!
