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.

Anna Sui Fantasia Mermaid

Diving deep into the world of mermaids, Anna Sui Fantasia Mermaid is the 1st flanker to the 2017 released Fantasia, which features a majestic looking unicorn on top of a giant golden acorn.

Aquatic scent has never been my personal favourite, but with such whimsical, enchanting looking bottle, one cannot deny how beautiful it is, which is why I ended up with a bottle of Fantasia Mermaid without first trying them out 😂

  4. Anna Sui Fantasia was created by perfumer Christian Provenzano. The bottle features a beautiful mermaid with a seahorse on top of a giant golden acorn. Described as a floral fruity gourmand, it opens up with a burst of fresh, citrusy scent, and a mixture of white floral notes. Wearing this on a hot, humid day, I get whiffs of airy, clean, beachy scent, which reminds me a lot of sunshine and ocean waves. 

Even though it is a flanker to Fantasia, it bears no resemblance to it, as this smells a little more citrusy and a little less sweet. If you are familiar with the scent of Anna Sui Secret Wish, the one which features a fairy sitting atop a crystal flacon, you would probably enjoy this, as they both have a fresh, citrusy opening, though this is a little more musky than Secret Wish.

Clean, soapy, with a woody drydown, Fantasia Mermaid is perfect for aquatic scent and mermaid lovers 😉
