Though I don’t have a ‘signature fragrance’, once in a blue moon I do become obsessed with a new scent. This year it is Lolita Lempicka L’eau Jolie. A fruitier floral than its popular predecessor, a base note of sandalwood adds luminosity to a strong top note of Nashi Pear that would otherwise risk being too sweet when mixed with blackcurrant and a heart note of neroli.
While the fragrance’s second heart note of peach blossom (lust!) seems to disappear when settling into my skin (boo!), L’eau Jolie has great staying pawer for an Eau de Toilette. It is, indeed, unintentionally seductive.
Lolita Lempicka L’eau Jolie is available from House of Fraser and Debenhams (£40 RRP for the 50ml Eau de Toilette spray, and £28 RRP for the 30ml).
This has to be my favourite Fashion Spot yet. I adore Lolita Lempicka, and since I hadn’t done a fragrance edition of Fashion Spot yet, thought it would be a great start. In the words of the creators, it is:
Fresh, Sweet Oriental, Vanilla. Created in 1997, Lolita Lempicka is a refreshing, oriental, woody fragrance. A fragrance of contrasts; baroque and contemporary, curvaceous and strong, enclosed in an apple shaped bottle. With a liquorice accord comprising of aniseed, violet, vanilla and praline with a floral oriental harmony of ivy, iris, amarena, tonka bean, vetiver, and musk. Lolita Lempicka is elegant and voluptuous.
The kind of images that evokes for me is something extremely sensual yet unaware. A powerful, innocent sex appeal, hence the ad. Hope you enjoy, gorgeous guys and dolls!
