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,

Anna Sui Fantasia

Anna Sui Fantasia was launched in 2017 and the fragrance was created by perfumer Jerome Epinette. The bottle features a majestic looking unicorn on top of a giant golden acorn. It's whimsical and magical, which is the reason why I bought a miniature bottle of it even though Anna Sui has never been my choice of perfume brand in the past due to their perfume short longevity.

  4. The floral bouquet base is offset by undertones of Golden cypress and Himalayan cedar wood, giving Fantasia the aura of an enchanted forest.
  5. Fantasia’s woodsy and floral fragrance conjures up sensuality, femininity, and mystery. Sweet pink pomelo is blended with undertones of spicy pink pepper to create a complex and vibrant mix.


This is a nostalgic scent as it brings me back to my childhood memories. We used to grow Pomelo trees and every time their fruits begin to ripen, our home would be filled with their uplifting and aromatic citrusy scent. I haven't eaten any Pomelo for years, but I do remember the taste of it's pulpy flesh, which I would describe as neither too sweet nor it is sour. The same goes to this scent, it's the perfect balance between sweet and fresh. 

It starts off with a burst of citrus-like scent that's fresh and zingy but never too sharp. The raspberry praline adds a sweetness to it but even after a while, Pomelo is still the main star for this scent, steering the scent away from sticky sweet territory. It's very long lasting for an edt, even after shower, there's still faint traces of it's woody drydown that I could pick up from my skin.

If I have known this perfume falls under the floriental genre, I would have gotten it sooner. I have initially thought it to be another fruity floral that's marketed towards a younger crowd.Well now that I'd tried it, I find it to be quite appealing to any age group, irregardless of your opinion towards unicorn 😉
