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.

Valentina Poudre by Valentino

Sensual and cozy perfumes are my signature scent and lately I've been really into soft powdery scents, one that's reminiscent of a nice smelling vintage face powder.

So far I've managed to find 2 perfumes that fits this category of scent. The first one is Narciso Rodriguez Poudree which I have tested before on a perfume counter at Sephora and the other one is Valentina Poudre by Valentino. 

I have never tried out Valentina Poudre and decided to search for it. Since it was a limited edition that has now been discontinued, I could hardly find a miniature bottle for it, however I did managed to get a vial sample. 

Top Notes 
Powdery notes, Ambrette (Musk Mallow)

Middle Notes 
Tuberose, Iris

Base Notes 
Vanilla, Sandalwood, Tonka Bean

Valentina Poudre by Valentino is a floriental scent, a mix between floral and oriental, which happens to be my favourite perfume genre. This has a dusty, powdery iris scent, with a cozy vanilla, sandalwood drydown. A warm and tender scent, it's elegantly soft and subtle, providing comfort with an inviting aura.

Narciso Rodriquez Poudree and Valentina Poudre are both created by Aurelien Guichard, which might explain the similarities between the 2 of them. Though they are both soft and powdery, I find Valentina Poudre to be  much more sensual and Narciso Rodriquez Poudree to be a little bit more sharper especially at the opening. Both however are beautiful scents and if you love Hypnotic Poison, you'll probably love these too as they do bears some resemblance.
