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.

Olympéa by Paco Rabanne

Olympéa is a feminine perfume by Paco Rabanne. The concept comes from the idea of modern Greek Goddess. It brings to the fore tales of conquests, dynamism, and strength. As a Greek Mythology buff, I simply have to get a whiff of this scent.

  1. Top Notes
    • Green Mandarin, Water Jasmine, Ginger Flower
  2. Heart Notes
  3. Salt, Vanilla
  4. Base notes
    • Ambergris, Cashmere Wood, Sandalwood

On my skin, I get hints of citrusy notes from the green mandarin and ginger flower, it then starts to mellow into a delicious blend of salty vanilla and jasmine. Olympéa is a floriental scent that's perfect for day and night. It doesn't feel too overwhelming on a hot day nor it is too light for night time. This scent has a beachy vibe to it due to the salty notes, it also keeps the vanilla scent from being too sweet. 

A long lasting scent with medium sillage. It's intimate, feminine and elegant, a creamy floriental scent that's perfect for a modern Greek Goddess. If you love vanilla and jasmine, do add this to your collection. Another plus?  The bottle design is gorgeous too!
