I'm gonna be honest, and admit that I purchased this for the bottle. I had no idea what to expect from it scent-wise.
Delightful - truly. The cinnamon was a surprise. For the first 15-20 minutes, I smell as though I walked into a bakery that just finished baking cinnamon bread.
The vanilla that comes thru is not too sweet, and is quite elegant - again, not something I expected.
The bottle is gorgeous, and truly misleading. This has nothing to do with aquatics, summer, sand, or anything you would envision with the likes of such a sculpture. While my brain suffers a bit with this juxtaposition, I do appreciate the comedy.
L de Lolita Lempicka is the first Kiss of a relationship that promises to be Breathtaking.One of those brilliant creations by LOLITA and Another Romantic and Elegant scent to add to the Collection. Evocative,Wonderful, Yummy,Bewitching,Addictive,Vanillic, Warm and Artistic.
This Great Oriental-Vanilla has top notes of Orange A heart of Cinnamon and a dry down of sheer Vanilla as it Gives you feel Cozy,Comfortable and Above All when you wear this EDP it makes you feel like you are a Angel.This scent is Irresistible for so many Men.This Gourmand Oriental is not as Heavy and Womanly as Angel.
It is a little too heavy for hot summer days but Great for a ROMANTIC EVENING in AUTUMN/WINTER weather.The bottle is as ADORABLE as The scent.It is not the perfume I like it because I Absolutely Love it.Anyway if you are looking for a Sophisticated Oriental-Vanilla not in a Cloying way you are exactly at the right place.
Longevity?Superb on my skin.
L is so pretty. It's sexy, salty, oceany, vanilla, cinnamon. Just perfect. I just wish it lasted longer on me.
Were it not for the undeniably girly bottle, this could easily pass for a unisex scent. The immortelle balances out the vanilla, making what could otherwise be way too sweet into an almost "rough" feeling and frankly, to my nose, fairly masculine scent.
But what do I know? I wear Jicky and Shalimar and even Insense... Oh, wait, Insense is actually made for men...
Guys, I am just saying, "Try it. You might like it. Don't be scared off by the bottle."
This is one of by favorite scents. As others have mentioned this is a sweet smell. The cinnamon and vanilla are definately there. However the vanilla is salty so it's not too girly of a scent although still a little maidenly but whatever I still wear it no matter how old I get. This is not an all year round scent for me. I like this scent in the warm months only and I just purchased a new bottle to have when I go on a caribbean cruise this month because that is exactly what this scent invokes for me. Warm, sweet, and salty perfect for a beach.
I love this perfume so much... yet I hate it just as well! To say I still have morbid gourmand dreams is an understatement. I have come a long way since I started with fragrance but i'll hold on to this baby.
It's very sweet. I get a lot of this bitter orange/cinnamon initially BUT I would not say it smells anything like a "cinnamon roll" as I have seen mentioned on more than one occasion. It's sweet but its not foody. And it quickly takes on this salty edge which I have never experienced so intensely in a perfume before. The rest is just a sweet vanilla.
The thing that leaves me baffled is how much this perfume 'takes me away'. It immediately reminded me of this cartoon I watched as a kid, specifically the mermaid in this cartoon. And sure enough Lempicka describes a mermaid on the website! Maybe i'm not as crazy as I thought. When I first spray it this scene immediately plays in my head.
What L as shown me is that gourmand and sythetic does not need to be tacky. This perfume is very well blended and its composition is wounderful. To not buy it because its not 'cultured' is nothing more then an opinion.
