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.

Elizabeth Arden Green Tea

  1. The perfume ad of Elizabeth Arden Green Tea which features Catherine Zeta Jones holding an oriental bamboo umbrella is one of my favourite perfume ads of all time. It's also the main reason why I decided to purchase it without first testing it out on my skin when I stumbled upon it years ago. Luckily I love it enough to wear it almost everyday, that was of course more than 10 years ago. 
  2. Elizabeth Arden Green Tea is a perfume that I intended to buy as a gift for my best friend as she loves green tea, but I ended up getting her another perfume after an online shopping mishap. But somehow she ended up getting the same gift for me on my birthday. What a strange coincidence, lol. But thank you once again for getting me something that's a reminiscent of the past 😉

Green Tea by Elizabeth Arden was first released in 1999 and the nose behind this fragrance is Francis Kurkdjian. It is described as a citrus aromatic scent that will energize the body, excites the senses and revives the spirit.

    1. Top Notes
        Bergamot, Caraway, Fruity Rhubarb, Lemon, Orange Zest
    2. Heart Notes
        Green Tea, Cool Minty Peppermint, Sweet Jasmine, Spicy Carnation, Fresh Fennel, Crisp Celery Spice
    3. Base Notes
        Amber, Oakmoss, Musk

This is a mild perfume, an after shower feel kinda scent, it's perfect for a hot and humid days, where you don't feel like wearing anything that's overpowering. It's crisp, light and airy. However this doesn't last that long, it's a fleeting scent that starts off with a mixture of citrusy notes which reminds me a lot of iced lemonade, it then dries down to a hint of musk and jasmine. A subtle and soft sillage perfume that brings back old memories. If you're into classic, clean and fresh perfumes, this one's for you 💙
