Now this is an interesting complex scent. It is a heavy, sweet gourmand scent with notes of musk and incense, the musk and incense get stronger with time. While it's totally not my type, the bottle is beautiful (just like the rest of LL perfumes), so I'd love to get my hands on a partial bottle just to put on my dresser :)

Musc Rav. has the tendency to go BO on me. To me, this is MR minus BO plus some very decent smooth vanilla. Extremely wearable, with a soft creamy drydown.

One of the best vanilla scents out there today. This vanilla is one of my favorites. It's a solar/sunny vanilla and very feminine. I do not find this sugary at all. Plus, the bottle is very cool.

Too sweet and sugary. The vanilla is sickeningly overpowering and in my opinion there is nothing appealing about smelling like a lemon meringue. The vanilla eventually fades (thankfully) and leaves space to a more adult musky/ambery note, but overall it is pretty awful, at least on me. Very pretty bottle though.

A wonderful gal sent me a sample and I loved it. The bottle is gorgeous. I think the perfume bottles are getting prettier and prettier. The fragrance is very nice. notes are bitter orange, cnnamon, Heart Notes, immortal Vanilla, base notes, precious woods, solar notes and musks. I got a tester but the bottle is just gorgeous and love the fragrance and love the drydown. So many fragrances so little time ♥♥

This was an OK scent for me. It would be hard to dislike really. It's amazingly smooth for a department store mainstream scent. It is very sweet and I cannot imagine wearing this in hot weather, I think it would actually sicken me. I would not wear it in the heat and I would not want to be around someone who was wearing this on a hot July afternoon either. The similarity between this and Musk Ravageur is undeniable ,but this is like musk ravageur for the masses, dumbed down a bit. It is sweetened up and the musk is toned down a bit but there is definitely a musky undertone to this that gives it more body and character than the average vanilla/gourmand mainstream perfume. My fellow fragrance lover friend who was with me when I tried this discovered that this bore a resemblance to Serge Lutens Une Bois de Vanille. At first, I thought she was crazy but we went into a store that carried that scent and tried some to compare. I have to admit, she was right. If you know Une Bois de Vanille and Musk Ravegeur, this is something akin to a combination of those. It is extremely linear and does not really change that much at all. If you are looking for something that is complex and changing giving you some different stages to enjoy, this is not a perfume that will do that for you. What you smell in the beginning is pretty much what you will be smelling all the way through. It's a nice scent but I have a strong feeling that it will be extremely popular with masses of women and you will be smelling it everywhere.

smells like NagChampa inscence to me, but thats ok cause i buy the stuff in bulk. lasts forever, but at the end of it all i smell more vanilly more than the intial musky scent. i may reby as i think i would come to love it if i wore it more, im a sucker for a pretty bottle, and if it smelled horrid i'd still buy it for the bottle :)

I received a sample of this from ebay. At first, I detected vanilla, but a few minutes later I sniffed again and realized I had smelled this before--Shalimar! love the original Lolita, so I just knew I was going to love "L" as well. I was wrong. This smelled like a salty vanilla on me. I tried to like it and wore it for several days, but sadly, it is just not for me. *sigh* I love the bottle, though.

I am just a little bit disappointed here. At first squirt I had high hopes because it was so lemony and I could smell the vanilla and just a little bit of musk and definitely that salty thing that I keep reading about, what is that anyhow? And it's a skin scent all right. It lasts and lasts and lasts and it's nice and clean but after a couple of hours the lemon is gone and I just smell like a vanilla moon pie except that sometimes I can still smell the salty thing. I ought to know what a vanilla moon pie smells like, they make them right over there in Chattanooga and I have had them for my whole entire life. They smell pretty good and I might just use up this decant but I sure did want that pretty bottle so I had to give it another lipstick for packaging. There is not anything at all wrong with smelling like you are eating a moon pie on the beach if that's what you like.
UPDATE: I tried it again and what I want to know is, when did they sneak in the sulphur? I mean, I didn't smell sulphur in it the first time but maybe that was the salty thing. What's going to be in it next time, clorox?

I have a sample of this bought off ebay, at first sniff in the bottle it smells exactly like Lush American Cream conditioner! When I spray it on myself it starts off very tangy and strong (yeah good words there) but quickly mellows down. What I notice most when it dries down is that it smells kind of rotten on me - I'm guessing this is the smokey, incensey scent others have mentioned, but I really don't think I like it. If it wasn't for that 'dirty' note, then it would be a very nice scent (which smells slightly less like American Cream when sprayed on but still very recognisable). EDIT: After a while I noticed the smokeyness subsiding, which was a plus for me. However, I still couldn't really tell if I liked it or not. I asked three other people their opinions and their reactions weren't 'wow!' - my dad said hmmm smells very sweet - it's ok; my sister and my friend both said it smelt very vanillary. No-one was overly impressed though! I think it's a nice scent but not HG material, as it's not amazing.

I love this fragrance and the main reason why I do is because it's going to save me alot of money. I adore Frederic Malle's MR and this smells so much like it that I will not be repurchasing the MR. This is a sexy, flirty scent not as animalic as MR but a more delicate version. You can get this at a very good price at Scentiments.com

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this fragrance. My daughter says it smells like a lemon cookie at first and I guess I can see why she says that. I love sweet foody scents and the dry down on me is heavenly. I have gotten so many compliments. I would definitely recommend and buy again.

I can't believe I like it so much ! At first I wasn't sure, but then I tried it for the second time and just had to buy a bottle.
I have more than 30 bottles of perfume and I'm using only L for a whole week now.
When I'm back from work I just must spray it on my wrists and get a whiff....and same at night.
It's like a drug, something about this perfume just makes me crazy about it.
I like the original Lolita too, but can't use it on the daily basis.
5 from 5 for me :-)

This is so nice! The initial whiff of orange and cinnamon is lovely, though it fades quickly. Then it's this beautiful, warm scent that's sweet but sophisticated at the same time. And it LASTS!! A teeny drop on each wrist was still detectable at the end of the day, which I find amazing. My husband, who is sadly anti-perfume but tolerates it for my sake, even said that it was "nice" and "better than most," which is actually quite a complement coming from him. I am seriously considering buying a full bottle, but that's pretty expensive. Gonna give it a few more tries to see whether this will be merely a fling or an enduring love.

If you like sweet, vanilla-heavy orientals or gourmands, you'll probably like L. If not, you probably won't. It starts out as an orange creamsicle - I'm a little baffled when people say this isn't a sweet or foody fragrance, because it's both on me. The orange eventually fades away, leaving a musky vanilla behind.
Maybe it's because my house isn't air-conditioned and I'm hot all the time, but L is a little too rich for me to wear right now. I guess the opening orange note is supposed to make it "summery." To me, that's the one and only thing differentiating it from fragrances like MR or Plaisir, which I won't be craving until it's about 25 degrees cooler here.

W-O-W-!!! I have just received "L" for mother's day from DH and kids and wearing it for the first time this morning. I have to say that the bottle is a work of art by itself. What a lovely presentation for such wonderful fragrance.
The perfume itself is just as pretty as its packaging.
Upon first spray I smelled orange and cinnamon. Not orange-blossom, or tangy/bitter orange zest, but real orange pulp. Like juicy orange wedges waiting for me to bite into.
The cinnamon made it even more yummy and interesting.
These top notes did not last long. Very quickly "L" morphed into a soft (but complex) woodsy vanilla that is sweet but not overly sweet, and with the most amazing added dimension -- a sea breeze. The salty (solar?) note balances the sweetness and brings it up to a level of perfection.
"L" sinks right into my skin and smells like *me* rather than *my perfume*, if that makes sense. I should add that "L" has great sillage and provides a very memorable scent.

I had really high hopes for L after reading a few of the reviews. I finally got to try it for myself this week. It's a delicious modern oriental...very fresh. The initial blast is sparkling and citrusy, this does fade and it becomes a sweet (not too sweet)cinnamony-vanilla scent with a hint of musk. I really love it, but couldn't give 5 lippies because it really doesn't last that well. Its been compared to a few other scents, but I find it to most resemble Chocolovers, except L does not have a hazelnut or malt note in it. It's also similiar to my nose to Trouble by Boucheron and I dare say that Choco and Trouble last better.Even with the comparisons, L is a lovely scent, nothing like the originial Lempicka scent at all. I love the bottle, especially the heart shape. You've got to admit all the Lempicka bottles are very original...not too many can top that gorgeous apple shaped bottle!I'm hoping some wonderful L body products will launch soon, this could really help the staying power.

OH WOW!!! I love the review lilacterp gave...I don't think I could add anything to that at all. It is just captivating. I just got a sample of it and I just can't belive this stuff! It is like a sultry summer evening on the beach...the kind of night in your youth when you are in love and the world is beautiful. That's how it makes me feel. Growing up on the shore, this scent seems very familiar to me, yet mysterious as well. I'm in love. I haven't got the full size yet but I can't wait to see the bottle as I love my original Lolita apple bottle so very much. I love Lolita Lempicka!!!!!!

This just came from UPS today and i logged on immediately to write this review. The bottle is the best bottle i have ever seen for perfume!!! A blue little heart with a baby pearl and baby starfish attached as well as the diamond studded L. The box is orange and folds out like a fairytale. Its fun opening it and unveiling the beautiful contents inside. The scent is just as nice as the bottle is. Its a gourmand if thats what you call it. It smells like one big giant oreo cookie!!!! Or even a giant birthday cake with lots and lots of icing on it. Perfect scent for a mermaid......or merman for that matter. This perfume is going to be HUGE once it hits a wider distribution.

"A fragrance exuding the beauty of the ocean coupled with the myth of the mermaid. A fresh oriental elixir, overwhelming the senses and embracing the skin with the salty kiss of the Everlasting Flower." Lolita Lempicka L is quite an interesting fragrance. From the first whiff I got of this ever, it has mesmerized me. It has an addictive quality that makes me want to spray it over and over again. The pefumer who created L, Maurice Roucel, is also the one who created Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur. Even before I knew they were authored by the same perfumer, I saw the resemblance, as L reminded me of the sweet musk and vanilla scent of Musc Ravageur. L has more going on and is sweeter, which actually makes me like it more than Musc Ravageur. In my mind, L starts off a bunch of oranges sprinkled with cinnamon sitting on a window sill in the sun, in front of an open window facing the beach in a beach house in Monte Carlo. The salty air mingles with the fruity citrusy spicyness of the oranges and cinnamon. Then comes the musk, seductively creeping in and melting into the light vanilla. The end result is a very warm, slightly salty vanilla woods floral musk. I get a sweet and salty sweaty skin accord from it overall, like skin that has been out in the sun on the beach glistening with the sweat from the sun and the salty water of the Mediterranean Sea, wrapped in the sweet and gentle scent of a warm summer breeze at the beach. It's a very sensual and sexy perfume to me, in the same way Musc Ravageur is. It just smells good, and I do think this is the scent a mermaid would wear. ;) The sillage is amazingly sexy. It wafts through the air, and I catch whiffs of this on me, and I fall in love with it every time. Lolita Lempicka has now established a penchance for beautiful bottles and packaging, and L is certainly beautifully presented. The bottle L comes in is gorgeous-- a heart-shaped glass stone bottle with a bluish-green tint, topped with a gold fisherman's net that is adorned with a little starfish, a little opalescent pearl, and a pearl-encrusted "L". There is also a starfish that comes out of the glass a little too. So pretty and creative! The top is the actual sprayer, so there is no cap to pull off. The sprayer is a triangle and it is also dressed in gold netting/lines. On the bottom of the bottle it says "Pacific Creation," so I guess that's the name of this bottle's design. Such attention to detail in both the bottle and the scent! I'm smitten. A deliciously gourmand perfume that to me is one of the best creations from the perfume industry in years. I love L! The only thing I don't like is that it is too wonderful of a scent to be so fleeting. It doesn't last very long, or as long as I'd like it to, on my skin. There is a 15 ml "parfum extrait" bottle coming out soon, so I can't wait to get that. A parfum in this scent would be heaven. By the way, L is so much better than the original Lolita Lempicka scent. This is a spectacular and fabulous scent, no doubt about it. EDIT: I wanted to add that the parfum version of L de lolita Lempicka is actually a bit different in composition than the EDP. According to the Lolita Lempicka Web site, the pure parfum has the notes of patchouli and neroli in addition to the original notes for the EDP listed below.Notes: bitter orange, cinnamon, immortal flower, vanilla, precious woods, solar notes, musks.
