    Default Lolita Lempicka (for her)? Guys wear it too!

    Hey guys 'fess up...Do you wear Lolita Lempicka (for her), not the Au Masculin? I just received a bottle today, and it is GREAT. I really like Au Masculin, but after my first wearing, I think I like this one (the feminine version) just as much. There is a violet note that is a little stronger, but the other notes are similar to Au Masculin. Any other Lolita Lempicka (for her) fans out there?

    Okay. Haha. You should give it a try. A 5-star fragrance according to Luca Turin, who called it (in so many words) unisex.

    No.
    Even the masculine is far too sweet for me to wear without any balancing bitter or smoky notes. The feminine is an oft-recurring gourmand I never really tire of, but I'd never ever ever ever never ever wear it myself. Ever.

    I can't stand to smell it on women. It's unlikely I'll like it on myself.

    I like both au Masculin and the womens version.

    Some men wear this. They like the cinnamon note.

    I like it but would never wear it myself.

    Lolita Lempicka is quite a nice frag.

    I much prefer the original to au Masculin. The boys' version contains a crude, abrasive woody aromachemical base note that I cannot abide. Meanwhile, Lolita Lempicka is no less "masculine" than any number of equally sweet gourmand orientals marketed to men.

    I completely agree. The original smells as it would any sweet gourmand oriental marketed to men.
    I love them both!

    +1. Lovely bottle as well.

    Au Masculin is quite good too, starting to like it a little better then before.

    Whenever I smell this gorgeous elixir on a woman, I'm totally charmed.
    I usually don't really ask strangers what they wear, but when I smelled this one on a perfect stranger, I HAD to ask her what is it.
    So, I said that to answer your question : NO, I wouldn't wear this myself (except maybe to test on me once), because I associate it strongly with a kind of... "feminine ideal", so I prefer to let it to the ladies.

    And YES I'm definitely, great choice, and wear it proudly if you don't have the same kind of association than me

    The drydown of The First Fragrance (LL for women) is kinda boring to me. I much prefer Forbidden Flower which opens similar but fresher with a cherry note added in and a powdery drydown.

    I purchased the original today. I'm starting to like it more than Au Masculin. It's really really nice, oriental, spicy, peppery sweetness from the licorice and anise and praline. Very very good.

    Tired of it. Much prefer the anise overkill of the au Masculin now.

    Rosehavn, thanks for this thread!

    I have Wifey's LL on the back of my hand now. I have always liked the smell on her since its launch, but never sampled it on my own skin. I am asking myself what makes this frag less masculine than many i have and like, and wondering if i have not been beclouded by bias more than i care to admit. This is getting a full wearing from me very soon!
