    Genre: Oriental

    LouLou is a sweet, powdery floral-oriental scent with the texture of a velvet cushion and the mass of an industrial drill press. It opens at full throttle, with indolic jasmine, tuberose, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, heliotrope, and plenty of aldehydes. All of these are soon joined by a very rich sandalwood and animalic musk and the foundation is a sweet, powdery vanillic amber. The composition is dense, viscous and determinedly “old school” in character. It’s also smooth, coherent, and well-blended, so while it represents a style that many would find matronly, LouLou exemplifies that style rather well.

    This kind of big oriental scent is rarely ever quiet, and LouLou is true to type, with aggressive projection and thick clouds of sillage. It’s “in for a penny, in for a pound” with LouLou. To enjoy it you’ve got to love the kind of retro, “perfumey” scents that granny wore, and you must feel no shame flouting your love. Sweet. Powdery. If that’s your thing, LouLou just might be your girl!

    This starts with an orangey-floral mix, mainly jasmine, lily and mimosa -the latter in the background- and this mixes very well indeed. It is a floral-fresh impression is given depth with a incense-woody underpinning in the drydown and is very well done. This lasts for several hours, and towards the end a not of tonka-induced sweetness keeps well in the mix. Silage and projection are very good, and the longevity is an acceptable six hours. A good spring scent.

    Turin correctly describes this as a "Jasmine Oriental," and that its primary interest is in the balance between the sweet femininity of the floral melange and the "edge" that the iris middle not gives it, keeping it from being overly sweet.

    It is an excellent jasmine, nicely balanced by the powdery almonds scent of the mimosa. One of the classiest and most sophisticated of Cacharel's classic scents.

    Definitely not unisex, quite feminine, beautifully rounded.

    80's galore!

    Got it today had to buy it again (30ml) not sure my wife will like it so if not.. it ends in my perfume closet :-)

    It was 1988 and i was 9.
    My brother 17 and my sister 16 on their hightimes going out with their friends in the weekends .
    I loved to see them coming over at friday night hanging out at our place having fun and being excited about the night to come.

    My brother had girlfriends and friends with girlfriends and ofcourse my sister had great looking girlfriends too :-)
    I was sitting between them sniffing their necks.
    It was BIG FUN! (echoes the song from Inner city's Big Fun)
    In the 80's the perfume industry was putting powerhouses on the shelf and LouLou was one of those pilars.
    As my brother wore Egoiste,Kouros,Lapidus and Tsar my sister was only wearing this bright neon Blue well crafted bottle with this enchanting red cap. (later she got the sprayer which also was very attractive as a bottle)
    All the girls had LouLou and i was in heaven!

    This scent is for me the benchmark of the womens powerhouse.
    Its creamy,sweet and wildly mysterious!
    Another fact this is a masterpiece : There is only 1 LouLou!
    Not like all the Amor series.

    As they say about this in the marketing which i cannot say better :
    "Loulou is like intoxicating dark red flower which allures you to the depth of dangerous and dark forest. Yet, it is not possible to resist. It is irresistible and once you are engrossed by its warm scent, you simply have to let go and follow it, you have to pick the forbidden fruit

    From the first seconds when applied this smells good!

    In my opinion not unisex!
    ***pour femme***

    Pros: Unique and deep
    Cons: None"

    Peculiar and kind of great - a precursor to Guerlain's Insolence

    I took a risk and first tried the EDP on a hot day, and fortunately I was not harmed. In the heat, it went through the opening and middle pretty quickly, and I was left with a drydown that smelled just like old school Secret deodorant, which wasn't at all the powdery note I expected! Trying it again in the cooler evening, I got much more of the sweet fruitiness, and as those notes started to merge with the candied florals and the powderiness, it reminded me so much of Guerlain's Insolence! I wouldn't confuse one for the other, yet they share a singular fake berry/hairspray/powdery French personality, and that's a pretty small club. That description sounds so awful, and some days I'm sure it would hit me that way, yet Insolence used to be my signature, so...I guess it's much more attraction than repulsion for me!

    Pros: Distinctive, long-lasting, ultra femme
    Cons: Odd and probably polarizing
