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.

I am so enjoying my purchase of this fragrance. I love sweet scents and this has that, but this also has some complexity too. The first time I spritzed L both my BF and I got a creamy chocolate & marshmellow note (combination of vanilla and cinnamon perhaps). As I wear this though, I get whiffs of something tropical...pineapple-ish. Usually when you think of gourmand scents, you think winter fragrance, but this is actually a great warm weather purfume. The vanilla sweetness hasn't changed composition or turned cloy on me in our Texas heat and humidity. And besides the fruity (including citrus)floral tropical-ness, I too get the oceanside salty thing going on. Hard to imagine, but it does compliment the creamy vanilla. I think I will like L for a long time :)

I have bought alot of perfume in my lifetime, even though I am only 30 I have smelled alot of stuff. I must admit I have fallen hard for this one, so much so I think my fragrant journey is going to slow considerable. This is so good I want to put it on as soon as I get up in the morning just to breathe it in as soon as possible. And I want to put on one little squirt before getting under my covers at night, just so it can lull me to sleep with it's salty, comforting, sexy little odor. Do I wish it had a little more sillage during the day? Yes. I bought the parfum version just to help it along but it doesn't prolong it much longer. But that's okay, I find the price of this very reasonable so I can continue to spray with abandon. The good thing is I don't think you could ever over do it with this one. It always ends up smelling like a sweet and salty aura around you. Which is great because too often I feel that people smell over- perfumed. This really does remind me of the beach. When I first saw the ad campaign for this and read the notes I thought it was so mis- matched. But as soon as I put it on I got it. It's a salty sweet fragrance warmed by the sun. I live on a little island off the coast of florida and often times the oriental frags I am drawn too are simply too much for the heat and humidity I encounter almost 10 months of the year. I'm not complaining mind you, you could never get me to move...ever! But this fragrance has the warmth I tend to go for in a fragrance, and is never too much. This IS the fragrance I bring to the deserted island we travel to in our boat every weekend. So... I guess I am saying this is my desert island scent! Wow. An HG for me? Who would have thunk it?! Now if they would just make some matching body products I would be heaven! I pray they never discontinue this, I would be trully heartbroken. A must try. Check out the website too, it's amazing: parfumslolitalempicka.com For the mermaid in all of us!

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
