Reviews of Lolita Lempicka

I'm not sure what it is, but I love its cloying opening. I think anise is underused in perfumery and it's one of the marking ingredients that I use most in my cooking. So many gourmand ingredients that lead to a spicy sweetness, that's powdery and not too sweet. Sillage is beautiful. How can you be so soft and strong, Lolita? Gorgeous. Really.

Beautiful - just beautiful. This is the kind of rare and wonderful creation that has the power to make the wearer a better person and takes them to a fairy-tale place. It lifts me to another level and makes me want to dance with joy.
I love the wistful ivy and violet notes, that reign in the sweeter, more gourmand ones.This is a fabulously balanced scent and contains my favourite amarena, licorice and tonka notes.
I could wax lyrical about this scent for hours but will just advise you to try it at least once to see why perfume can be considered an art form.

One of my all-time favorites. Have been wearing this almost from the time of its release. It is exotic, sensual, gothic. It is a dark floral, sweet spicy, almost earthy gourmand. A perfume a forest nymph would wear.

I ENJOY THE SMELL BUT THERE IS SOMETHING, SOME NOTE, THAT i CANNOT PINPOINT... BUT IT IS OFFENSIVE TO ME. iT MAKES MY NOSE TWITCH AND EYES WATER. It is a sweet note, I've found it in some milk and honey scented products as well.

Oh, gods, I love this so much. Lolita Lempicka just makes me ludicrously happy. I ordered it blind, because of a Turin/Sanchez review. And HATED it at first spray. I thought it too cloying and sticky and sweet. But I couldn't forget it. There was a sort of mysterious, dark come-hither quality to it that made my try it again some hours later. And the next day. By that evening I was completely hooked. There's a spicy, earthy complexity behind the cherries and chocolate and light vanilla, like biting into a cherry truffle, only to find layers of pepper and moss and wood ferns. It's WEIRD. And gorgeous.

I have a small collection of (more expensive) favorites, including Chanel's Bois des Iles, Annick Goutal's Ninfeo Mio, and Guerlain's L'Heure Bleue, but weirdly it's LL that happifies and seduces me the most.

I just got a ridiculous deal on a bottle of EDP, which I bought more or less blind, having not smelled LL in ages. And I'm not even going there with the Angel comparisons.

Also, I've been smelling a lot of expensive fragrances in the last couple of weeks, and now I can really tell the difference. This is obviously not sourced from rare materials that cost a king's ransom. Still--

What's not to like? LL is as lovable as puppies and kittens. It smells like all the delicious things that everyone else describes in their reviews--anise, cola, berries, chocolate shavings, some spice box, vanilla, agreeable sweet musk (ISO E Super, I presume?). I'd like a little more discernable structure (the anise, which I like, seems to wear away quickly and disappear from the composition altogether), but that may be a stylistic choice. I'm also not getting the crazy sillage that several reviewers mention. Maybe it's because my EDP doesn't have an atomizer?

Overall: a lot of bang for the buck, even at standard retail. Even better now that everyone and their mother isn't wearing it.
