Lolita Lempicka

When it comes to perfume, one of my favourite perfume brand is Lolita Lempicka. The first perfume by Lolita Lempicka was created by Annick Menardo in 1997, but sadly it has been discontinued in 2010 and later re-released as Lolita Lempicka Le Premier Parfum.  In hopes of getting the original version of Lolita Lempicka, I've been diligently searching for a bottle of the older formulation, but Lolita Lempicka has indeed become quite rare and I haven't been able to get my hands on the original version. I ended up purchasing a bottle of Lolita Lempicka Le Premier Parfum from a friendly Carousell seller, who's selling off some of her older perfume collection. I decided to snag it, just to get a whiff of the newer version, and of course to complete my Lolita Lempicka collection. Top Notes  Ivy leaf, Pineapple, Lemon, Rosewood, Sour Cherry, Anise Middle Notes  Lily of the valley, Rose, Jasmine, Iris, Violet, Licorice Base Notes  Sweet Almond, Heliotrope,

L de Lolita Lempicka

L de Lolita Lempicka was launched in 2006 and the fragrance was created by perfumer Maurice Roucel. The bottle was designed by Sylvie de France.



From the perfume ad and the aquamarine, pebble heart shaped bottle with the golden net, this perfume reminds me a lot of the deep blue ocean and mermaids. Even though I have an affinity for mermaids, I'm not too fond of aquatic scent, which is why I steer clear from this perfume for years, thinking it as another harsh clean scent. 





The only reason why I got this is because of the bottle, it's been discontinued for years and I wanted to get this before it's gone. So imagine my surprise when I first tried it on. Instead of being bombarded with screechy and sharp aquatic scent, I was left with a delicious oriental vanilla scent that conjures images of Christmas baking. I immediately regret not getting a full bottle of this years before it's been discontinued, lol.


  1. Top Notes
    • Bitter orange,
    •  
    • Bergamot
  2. Heart Notes
    • Immortal flower,
    •  Cinnamon, Musk
  3. Base notes
      Tonka Bean, Vanilla, Sandalwood


L de Lolita Lempicka opens up with a mixture of citrusy and spicy blends of bitter orange and bergamot. As the top notes slowly dissipates, cinnamon dominates the whole scent, it then slowly dries down to vanilla and sandalwood. A reminiscent of Christmas, where the scent of cinnamon rolls and gingerbread filled the air.

One of the ingredients on the heart notes for L is 
Immortal flower, or Everlasting flower, a domestic herb that grows on the rocky pastures of the Mediterranean coast, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. This is probably where Lolita Lempicka get their mermaid inspiration. Apparently Immortal flower smells a lot like Maple syrup, burnt sugar and honey with a hint of smokey wood. One of the things I love about L and the original Lolita Lempicka are their woody, smokey drydown.



My miniature bottle of L de Lolita Lempicka actually came with a set of lotion and shower gel.The matching lotion and shower gel have the same exact scent with the perfume, they actually make the scent last longer during the day. I would say that this is a must try. Do try it before it's gone forever!
