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.
