I´ve done it again! Bought a whole bottle of perfume unsniffed. Namely L de Lolita Lempicka, you may wonder how I managed not to have sniffed it before, but thats the truth.
I had a feeling I would really like it, the notes notes sounds jummy, who woldn´t like cinnamon, vanilla, some citrus, spices and a salty note? The reviews I´ve read have been very positive, but it seems like a perfume you either like a lot or not at all. And, very important to, it is created by Maurice Roucel, and I guessed when he´s involved it couldn´t be that bad.
And no, L de Lolita lempicka isn´t at all wrong. When I´ve got it and tested it, it was love at first sniff.
Everyone who enjoy baking and stuff like that, know that a pinch of salt in the buns, cookies or fudge make a lot of different. Maurice knows that to. You might belive that L de Lolita Lempicka is a overly sweet, girly and boring gourmand and sure, it could be if it wasn´t for that pinch of salt! It makes it a magnificent, sexy, grown-up and quite naughty fragrance.
I´ve heard that men likes L de Lolita Lempicka, the smell might remind them of their mothers making cookies. Such nice fragrance memories my husband don´t have, his mother was a disaster in the kitchen. But when I wear L de Lolita Lempicka, he is lying close and sniff carefully on my neck, for a very long time. -You smells like a nude cookie, he says after a while. I have no idea what a nude cookie is, but it´s sure smells really, really good. Nude cookie sounds quite cute, but also a bit naughty sexy I think.
L de Lolita lempicka has the salty almost sweaty fragrance in common with the more prestigiuos and less kitchy Dans Tes Bras also made by Maurice Roucel, but produced by Frederic Malle.
I think that L de Lolita Lempicka is Dans Tes Bras kind of vulgure, übersexy and a bit slutty, but still very warm hearted and cookie baking cousin. If L de Lolita Lempicka is a nude cookie, Dans Tes Bras is a nude mushroom... And I like them both, a lot.
