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.

Interview With The Vampire : Claudia's Story

Interview With The Vampire : Claudia's Story is a graphic novel by Ashley Marie Witter, adapted from Anne's Rice Interview With The Vampire. 

Famously known for her Vampire Chronicles, Anne Rice's Interview With The Vampire was made into a film in 1994 which stars Tom Cruise as Lestat, Brad Pitt as Louis, Kirsten Dunst as Claudia, Antonio Banderas as Armand and Christian Slater as Daniel Molloy. 

I remember the beautiful intro to the movie, with night scenery of San Francisco and the hauntingly beautiful sound of opera music. In the movie, it focuses more on Louis perspective as he shares his life story to Daniel, a reporter  in San Francisco.

In this book however it tells the story from Claudia's perspective. Being a child vampire, Claudia starts to resent Lestat for turning her into a vampire. As times goes by, she gets even more angsty, feeling trapped in a child's body for an eternity. 

The story is a heartbreaking one and even has an even more tragic ending. The manga-like art style by Ashley Marie Witter is beautiful, with constrasting splashes of blood in pages that's mostly black and white. 

A must have if you're a fan of graphic style book and a lovely companion for the Anne Rice's vampire book collector.
