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.

Taylor By Taylor Swift

  1. Taylor by Taylor Swift was released in 2013 and this perfume reflects more of her own personal style, unlike her 2 previous fairytale inspired releases Wonderstruck & Wonderstruck Enchanted, which I personally think are more sweeter and more youthful.

My all time favourite scent has always been Jessica Simpson's Fancy Love , but it doesn't last as long as it used to ever since they reformulated it. Prior to this, I'd tried out Burberry Women, which shares the same peaches & cream drydown as Fancy Love. Though I do love it, the lasting power is even weaker than Fancy Love, which then leads to me trying out Taylor which is said to share the same drydown as Fancy Love & Burberry Women. 

  1. I love the bottle design for Taylor. It's vintage inspired with a psychedelic design, complete with a classic string of faux pearl at the neck of the spray nozzle.

  1. Top Notes
    • Lychee, 
    • Tangerine, 
    • Magnolia
  2. Heart Notes
    • Peony, 
    • Hydrangea, 
    • Vanilla orchid
  3. Base notes
    • Sandalwood, 
    • Apricot, 
    • Cashmere musk, 
    • Woods

        • Apricot is the main star for this scent. It's light and airy. Instead of feeling like you're being drenched head to toes in sticky sweet apricot jam, it feels like you're walking in a fruit orchard filled with the scent of fresh and juicy apricots. Lurking quietly in the background, you'll catch whiffs of magnolia, peony and vanilla orchid, which gives this scent the perfect balanced between fresh and floral. The musky drydown of cashmere musk and sandalwood gives it a more mature vibe, away from the crowds of sweet teeny booper scents.

It's a lively, bright, uplifting scent. It does shares some similarities to Fancy Love and Burberry due to it's apricot notes. Out of the 3 scents, I would describe this as the playful youngest sister, while Fancy Love is the romantic middle sister and finaly Burberry Women as the classic, oldest one.

No matter what your preference, any of these 3 deserves a spot on everyone's dressing table, for they're an uplifting scent that will surely brings a smile to your day!
