I wouldn't have bothered testing this if I hadn't gotten a free sample. I always expected Lolita Lempicka made candy-sweet scents, cause that's how the name sounds and what the bottles express.
But this is a surprise: there is a store in Amsterdam called Diabolo that sells all sorts of gothic, punk and fetish wear and it has a particular scent, I don't know if they burn a certain incense, but L really reminds me of that shop's smell.On me, L is a mix of salt, incense, smoke and vanilla. It's a very unusual scent, not marine, not oriental, not fruity. It's not heady or cloying, but I think it wouldn't be my choice for a day perfume and definitely not for summer. I can picture velvet clothing and smokey eyes with this, a moulin rouge style bar, or one with loads of red-tinted tiffany glass. I'm looking forward to using my sample in autumn! And I think the bottle is a little gem and matches the salty hint. EDIT: just tried again, and now all I get is orange and vanilla, too sweet, fake and cloying. No smoke, no salt, no incense. What happened, I don't know. up the swaplist it goes!

Pretty bottle! L still carries the warmthness of the original Lolita perfume, but lighten up with fruity notes. Not exactly fresh, but not very intimate smelling either. It's a very likable vanilla scent with a twist of powder and floral. I love it. I can imagine a beautiful classy lady in her 30s trying to dress casual for the weekend. Approachable yet have class. Don't know how men will react to it though as I haven't received any comments for this scents.

This smells dirty on me... but a good 'dirty'. No sea/marine notes, but the bottle is beautiful. Back to the 'dirty' I just can't put my finger on it. I can't stop sniffing it though. I have a sample L'Artisian Fragrances Dzing! and this smells like it, but more feminine and stronger. Can't decide, but intrigued.

Well I've been obsessed with this fragrance ever since I was given a sample almost 2 weeks ago and finally caved in and purchased it today. It is lovely. It has a sweetness, yet without being sickly, cloying or floral (I hate those kind of fragrances). It's really soft and feminine, warm and chocolatey. A comforting fragrance. As someone else has commented, it isn't what you expect from the description or bottle - not at all like the sea or fresh. Don't be put off from when you first spray it on, the initial sweetness fades and it settles into a much softer fragrance. It is expensive, but worth it in my opinion. Unlike others, I actually love the bottle. It's so pretty! I can see this becoming one of my regular perfumes.

Received a sample of this, and at first, while I liked it, I didn't consider it FBW. Now I'm reconsidering. I'll tell you the truth, there's nothing utterly original or innovative here, I mean, it's another vanilla-based scent. But I'm loving it more and more. On me, the opening is citrus fruits/orange zests, mixed with creamy vanilla, it's really pretty and it gives a refreshing feeling. The drydown is a woody, spicy vanilla, keeping it from being tooth-achingly sweet. However, what I really really love about this, is that after an hour or two, I get a slightly incensey feeling. Also, it's not a "loud" scent, instead, it stays close to the skin, giving it a warm feeling. Yep, that's it, to me it smells like warm, soft skin, and you have to be really close to smell it. I never really liked the first Lolita Lempicka scent, because I couldn't bear its strong anise note on me, but I'm pretty sure I'll end up buying a bottle of L.
EDITED: Wow, I'm adding a lippie to this one. I have my bottle now, and I really really love it. What's great is that it changes from time to time. Sometimes the orange comes out really nice, sometimes it's a chocolatey-caramelly wonder (and someone here said that it reminded her of Amorito, I must agree). Sometimes it has great sillage, sometimes it stays very close to the skin. I must say I'm amazed, and I always wonder what is gonna come out. Loooooooooove it

I have been a fan of the original Lolita Lempicka since I was a teenager. I never thought Lempicka could come up with another hit but I am nicely surprised with "L". First, let me say that I find the ad around the scent very misleading, especially when I read words like "sea", "mermeids", "salty kiss"... all these words make me think of a light, breezy, aquatic fragrance. Wrong! It turns out that "L" is none of these but rather a gourmand vanilla oriental scent. I am sure that it will appeal to all gourmand lovers. It is not sickenly sweet, it is just nice and lovely and could well soon become a hit like Lempicka's first scent!
UPDATE JAN.3, 2009: This have been my signature scent for over a year. It is a perfect alternative to FM's Musc Ravageur as both turn out pretty much the same on my skin. My search for a HG is at last over, who would have thought?

the first thing i smell is "orange dreamsicle." yeech. not sexy to smell like a popsicle! this creamy-vanilla-citrus opening note disagrees with me in the same way that Trouble (Boucheron) does. fortunately, the vanilla-chocolate-wood drydown soon comes through, and it grows on me... the base notes remind me of a sweeter, more powdery Amorito (the Body Shop). i'll keep my "L" sample to try every now and then, but i prefer Amorito when i'm in the mood for this kind of scent.

This review is for the new Lolita that smells divine but unfortunately comes in a ghastly Britney-Spears-like bottle. Upon entering the department store I had no intention of adding another fragrance to my collection but alas I ended up leaving with my little bag and a smile on my face, justifying it as a well deserved 30th birthday gift to myself.
So, enough about my despairing birthday, afterall my Mom says it's just a number and a lovely one at that, as it is nice and round looking and is divisible by 2 making it an even number as well.....not sure where she was going with this but in my desperation I will take it and run with it.
I am in Love with this fragrance, much more deeply in love than I ever thought I was with the first Lolita. Starts out citrusy and dries down to a warm chocolately hug. The SA tells me that the top note is bergamot and to me it seems like an unlikely combination with the rest of the notes but somehow it works. Tonka bean as well in there. This will definately be a love it or hate it Frag, and may dry powdery on some of you lovely ladies.
If you can get passed the hideous bottle give it a try just be forewarned of the heavily disguised spray opening, I can imagine that this one will result in some heavily perfumed eyeballs.
What exactly is this one called? It does not say on the box and there is just that hoochie-ish ankle charm 'L' hanging from the bottle. Anyone know? UPDATE: It is simply called 'L' meh...

Here are some quick thoughts after a short wearing. Immediately - love! "L" is a predominantly vanilla fragrance, sweet but not overbearing. It has a citrussy, tangy top with a powdery, stoney undercurrent. Intriguing, subtle, very pretty.

ETA: After owning this for two months now, I still find myself reaching for it constantly. It's so many things wrapped up in one: delicious, soft, smokey, salty and mysterious. It's the perfect all purpose perfume.

Perfume description from

The fragrance is described as ‘a perfume that gives more, a salty kiss of immortal flower’. The opening of Seville (bitter) orange spiced with cinnamon announces a gentle Oriental floral. An ode to immortal flower, over a base of precious wood and musks. Created by perfumer Maurice Roucel.

Top note: Bitter Orange, Cinnamon
Middle note: Immortal, Vanilla
Base note: Precious Woods, Solar Notes, Musks
