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.

This perfume is an odd one for me. Firstly the bottle is not something I would normally like, being a bit fussy and girly, but I still do quite like it. Secondly the perfume doesn't smell anything like the scent you'd expect to come out of that watery, mermaidy bottle. Thirdly, I'm not a big fan of foody fragrances yet I still reach for this one from time to time (partly, I have to admit, because it's the one perfume my other half consistently notices and compliments me on). It just smells like cookies. Comforting and warm. It does have a slightly more complex opening which for some reason reminds me of Germolene (something like wintergreen or root beer?), but I don't mind that. Thinking about it, I'm not sure I've ever actually worn this outside my house. It's for cool autumn or winter evenings at home, snuggling up together on the sofa. I like to have a few fragrances around to suit different moods, and although I don't wear this often, I find it a comforting scent. The perfume equivalent of a hug or a mug of hot chocolate. The bottle will last me a long time, but I expect I'll replace it when it's used up. After all, why wouldn't I keep a perfume that, according to my OH, makes me smell edible?

In a word...divine!!! Yes, it is sweet....but on me I initially get vanilla-ish orange...kind of creamsicle I guess. Then the cinnamon comes in and I just think it's a gorgeous combination. The cinnamon hangs around pretty much all day on me and I love to get wafts of it throughout the day....it's very warm and sexy smelling (or so I've been told!!). I don't really get the caramel much on me as others have spoken of.....on me purely orange & cinnamon!!
I also think the bottle is utterly gorgeous!! However from the look of the bottle I was expecting something aquatic...however the fragrance is definitely not disappointing in any way to me and just try to stop me purchasing this one again!!!

I had a huge bottle of this stuff, but I swapped it away thinking I could do without it..............wrong. Fall is coming back around and I *had* to have this scent again. This warm, smokey vanilla just embodies fall for me. The scent is cozy, toasty, and sexy. At first spray it's a smokey vanilla/caramel with a slight bit of ocean water. The dry down is strictly smoke and vanilla. It's a different kind of vanilla, it's grown up and delicious.

I am working off a sample vial of this and am still a bit undecided as to whether I will buy a bottle. In small amounts on the right days it smells very lovely. Warm and sweet and sexy all at the same time. I had an interesting experience with it, though. I live in the Midwest US, so summers are pretty sticky. I was enjoying my sample in small doses, but then brought it along to a conference in Las Vegas in July and DETESTED it there! Not sure what happened with that, but it has made me a bit leery. Maybe it needs the humidity somehow? I'm waiting to see how it likes the Fall.
