Like it's big sister (Lolita Lempicka Original) the L is certainly different from the usual fragrances catering to the big market. Superb staying power that can linger for days. The opening is a burst of juicy orange, but unfortunately the top notes last only a couple of minutes for me. The fragrance then dries down to a modest salty vanilla and with some cinnamon accent, over time the whole composition goes towards a sweeter vanilla scent that keeps close to the body. I would have loved it if the brighter top notes had lasted longer. I also find that the middle and base notes are a bit boring and monotonous, albeit unusual. A nice and pleasant fragrance for Winter - but lacks the "it" factor for me as I am looking for something a bit more interesting and unusual.

Packaging : Box is adorable, simple, pretty and sweet

Bottle: The bottle of L is perfect and looks like a little treasure found in a sunken pirate ship. The shape is an organic/freeform heart in aqua glass. The detail consists of gold netting, nautical charms and contrasting and capless sprayer wrapped in golden wire. Beautiful bottle.

Scent: Notes include burnt sugary vanilla (like burnt cake), Aquatic notes (salt water and sand) and bitter herbs and spices. It's truly great on the skin for the first few minutes, but dry down is bitter and overly musky. A synthetic gourmand scent, like a scented marker!

Overall: I like this scent at first, but find the drydown sickening, I don't think i'd ever get it again.

This fragrance has turned into one of my most loved and worn scents. The admittedly sweet vanilla base is smooth, warm, and wearable. I also smell the cinnamon, citrus, and some incense on me which give it a sexy and sophisticated edge. It is alluring, comforting, and rather addicting at the same time. I will repurchase when my bottle runs out.

To me, this fragrance falls into the "femme-fatale/seduction-potion" category. It's sweet and warm yet dark and mysterious. I smell vanilla, chocolate, smoke and ocean, if that makes any sense (probably not:-D). It's a beautiful, totally unique creation. It's comparable to Angel - because of its uniqueness- but very different from it. As for the bottle, it's a true work of art.
I've only used samples of this fragrance in the past, but it's definitely on my wishlist.

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 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.
