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.

Aura By Thierry Mugler

Aura by Thierry Mugler, with it's emerald green, heart shaped bottle looks every bit alien & otherwordly. It was launched in 2017 and the fragrance was created by perfumers Marie Salamagne, Christophe Raynaud, Amandine Marie and Daphne Bugey.

  1. Top Notes
      Bergamot, Rhubard Leaf, Tiger Liana
  2. Heart Notes
      Orange Blossom, Ylang-Ylang, Green Notes
  3. Base Notes
      Bourbon Vanilla, Amber Wood, Sandalwood, Woody Notes

Aura opens up with whiffs of green, tropical notes, uniquely minty though slightly medicinal, it almost made me wonder if I'd made a huge mistake in purchasing this 😂 Before I could ponder for long, it slowly turns into the most pleasing, sensual scent on my skin, a mixture of creamy, warm, oriental vanilla with hints of woody notes that reminds me a lot of the humid scent of tropical rainforest. The scent stays creamy and cozy throughout the day, though occasionaly I get subtle whiffs of the green, tropical notes. 

Hot and humid weather seems to bring out the best in this perfume as it smell even better on hot, sunny days. Even though it's a heavy scent, it doesn't feel sharp and cloying at all. It has moderate to heavy sillage and it last a good 6-8 hours, sometimes even longer.

A uniquely strange perfume, Aura might be a good fit for those of you who are looking for a green gourmand scent, though I wouldn't recommend blind buying without testing it out first, as the scent reacts differently according to skin chemistry.

If you're curious about Aura, do check out their perfume ad as  it perfectly conveys the scent of Aura, a strong, sensual women in an otherwordly, alien tropical jungle. 😉
