Love love love! I was a die-hard Angel fan for years. It used to dry down to a sexy, warm fragrance. Then, for unknown reasons (bcp?) it stopped showing up on me. I tried the regular Lolita Lempicka and like it, but L was a godsend. Doesn't smell too sweet or foody on me and lasts very well! Yay!

This smells beautiful, and I use it occasionally and my 8 year old daughter loves it. . . . . but it is tooth-achingly sweet. . . . a bit much for me. *Update* I just lowered the rating because this is the ONLY perfume I've ever had that turned colors - it has darkened to an amber color. It is stored in a dark cupboard like all my other fragrances. I think it still smells the same, though - sickeningly sweet. Yuck.

I do not have this fragrances but I've smelled it a couple of times and one of my best friends has it. I can't say that this is the worst perfume ever because it is not (it is much wearable than Opium from YSL or No.5 by Chanel) but it just doesn't work for me.
It smells like anything in the world but perfume. It smells like an old kitchen were our grandmas used to bake vanilla pies with cinammon. My boyfriend hates that too. He sais that it is not feminine, it smells like food and that you should spray it in the kitchen when you wanna lie your husband that you've cooked (instead, you bought those cakes from the supermarket) :-)). And I completely agree with him.

I love gourmand fragrances, so I tried this based on reviews here. A big winner! This will stay in my rotation! As I have been wearing this, I think it smells similar to Jessica Simpson Fancy, which I am also a fan of.

I love the original Lolita, could die for the Lolita Midnight and finally have been able to buy L. I first I thought I would hate, as I thought it would smell like Calvin Klein's Escape (no reason to base this on, except the Marine theme). Now I don't know how I lived without having this for so long. Very yummy, decadent and sweet, and got a great deal from Sephora with a gift card and free shipping.

I have such a love-hate relationship with gourmands. I always buy them, wear them to death for a week or two, then get so sick of them I never want to smell them again. Not so with L. It is the only "foody" perfume I need in my arsenal. While I don't wear it every day, it always keeps me coming back for more. L opens as a slightly spicy, quite sweet cinnamon-vanilla. I've heard people refer to it as "salty" or "beachy" but to me it is neither of those things...it has an earthy, almost autumnal edge. It is cozy and comforting. The lasting power is excellent and as the day goes on it becomes sweeter and a bit more cake/cupcake like. Add to the scent itself the quirky, adorable bottle and the fact that it can be found for VERY cheap online, and you have a five lippie scent.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! This will be my HG perfume for life! To me this smells a lot like Angel, BUT this is softer and more powdery, but still very sweet. I've wanted a sexy gourmand scent, but they are really hard to find, because most seem to be more for teens/young adults. This is such a seductive scent, the perfect blend of sweet and sophistication. I've tried Pink Sugar and it smells YUM, but I don't feel like a woman when I wear it, its a more lighthearted, fun, young scent. Angel was more complex but I smelled like every woman in my circle of friends who are all fans of it. I wanted something to make me stand out, and remind every man in the room that a WOMAN had just walked thru the door and this is that perfume!!! The bottle is gorgeous, the price is reasonable (especially if you get it from FragranceX.com) and the lasting power is moderate, lasting a good 4-5 hours on my skin. This perfume is destined to become my signature scent, I just wish I hadn't had to wait until I was 35 to find it!

Wow, I LOVE this but now I'm scared b/c I see there are several reviews so this must be in everyones wardrobe. I don't know why but this reminds me of the smell of a baby's head a fake doll that is. Yumm Yumm Orangy Vanilla Cereal Puffs. Too bad everyone else has this but I'm thinking I need a bottle of this real bad especially for this Holiday Season...Update: I wore this to work last night and the minute I stepped in the room a co-worker said Wow you smell good!!! Oh how I must get a full sized bottle now..

This stuff smells EXACTLY like Pink Sugar to me. Not bad, but much more expensive. I do love the bottle and since I got it in a swap, I wont complain. If I had to purchase again, I'd just buy Pink Sugar.

I actually have a shower gel/lotion duo in this scent that I got as a Sephora Beauty Insider deluxe sample, not the perfume, but since the scent is exactly the same to my nose in both, I'd guess they're identical to the perfume as well.
While I'm not good at picking out notes in scents like this, I can say that this reminds me strongly of Thierry Mugler Angel. It has the same undefinable sweetness with a hint of muskiness in the background. In fact, I'm not sure I wouldn't have thought this WAS Angel if I'd smelled it on someone else or hadn't seen the bottle it came out of.
Sephora says the notes in this scent are bitter orange, cinnamon, immortal, vanilla, precious woods, solar notes (no idea what those are) and musk. I'd say I smell the vanilla, cinnamon and musk. Maybe a touch of orange, too. It's sweet but not truly foody. It doesn't smell like something I'd want to eat, but it's candyish. There's also a grounding muskiness to it that keeps it from being overbearingly sweet, but it's bordering on it (especially when it's fresh on the skin; the sweetness dissipates somewhat over the first couple of hours of wear).
I would never have imagined this would smell the way it does based on the look of the bottle and the name of the set I got (The Mermaid's Bath). This doesn't make me think of mermaids or the ocean. It makes me think of sweet musky skin topped with a touch of caramel and vanilla. It's nice, but it's not something I'd wear very often. I tend to prefer earthy scents.
