This is a really good description, imo, especially the fairy tale comparison.
I swapped with Djuna for a bottle of this without having really tested it, and was happy to really love it. I have been wearing it the last few days layered with Bulgari Black, which has a darker smokey vanilla to it, and I find that it extends the longevity for me.
The only drawback to Lolita for me has been that it doesn't last as long as I would like, but maybe that is a trade off for its beautiful sweet softness.
I highly recommend this.
