Notes from Fragrantica: liquorice blossom, iris, jasmine, myrrh, soft vanilla and warm benzoin.The opening of this is very similar to original Lolita Lempicka---the first formulation original, that is. Lots of delicious licorice and benzoin and vanilla--a hint of jasmine in there to keep it interesting...but the fun happens in the drydown, when the myrrh comes to play and gives it a little kick. This is a sweet fragrance but not TOO sweet, resinous with a lively heart that just makes you feel amazing when you're wearing it. The bottle is gorgeous! I am really pleased I got the large bottle of this LE release as it really is something special.

As someone really sensitive to heavy scents, I hardly ever wear perfumes.Until I sampled a whiff of the 2016 Lolita Lempicka Le Parfum and I became mesmerized with the powdery, smokey, vanilla, jasmine, and cedar notes. This perfume makes me think of a young, not quite innocent Morticia Addams attending evening mass at a Transylvanian Orthodox Church, getting high on the incense spread around the worshippers by the priest. My boyfriend dubbed it “mortuary vanilla,” jokingly, as he loves it and is intrigued by it. I only need the tinniest of tiny drops on the inside of my wrists to create the aura of winter solstice I am aiming for. That spray nozzle is a bit inconvenient, as it tends to dispense way too much. Overdoing it, can be lethal. The first time I used it, I had such a headache, I had to run and wash my hands immediately. Now I just unscrew the top and use the dispenser to pat a minuscule amount on my arms. This is strictly a cold weather perfume. In the summer, it is too cloyingly sweet, but in winter the cold air reacts with it to create the most beautiful, harmonious scent that is part my own and part fairy dust. I would definitely repurchase, because it is rare for me to find a perfume I love this much and which agrees with my body’s chemistry.

Notes from Fragrantica: grapefruit, bergamot, orchid, frangipani flower, amber, musk and woody accords (driftwood).This opens salty and fresh with the bergamot...almost a tangy beginning and nothing at all like L de Lolita. The only thing that makes this a flanker really is the bottle, I find they are not even cousins when it comes to scent. That being said, it is gorgeous, as most LL scents are, and well worth hunting down a bottle. As the fragrance dries down you get warm amber and driftwood, and a generous tropical dose of frangipani throughout. The frangipani is lovely and present, but is not overly strong. This is a warm, salty, powdery and nearly creamy scent after a few hours, and I really love it. The bottle is the same base design as L de Lolita (heart shaped aqua stone)...but it's frosted rather than clear, with coral adornments. Discontinued but still relatively affordable.)

From Fragrantica (notes, etc): Illusions Noires Si Lolita Eau de Minuit is the extreme version of the original with the oriental - floral – ambery character. It includes accords of sweet pea, patchouli, amber and vanilla absolute.This is warm, spicy, and could be considered unisex thanks to the prominent patchouli and pink pepper. Definitely related to original Si Lolita, but with more oomph to it. This is a sweet pea tinged patchouli and amber fragrance with bursts of pink pepper and smooth vanilla. I don't get any orange in it at all, but a tiny hint of heliotrope adds a light powdery accord (not too powdery, don't let that scare you) and overall makes this smell more expensive than it was. Very well blended from start to finish, and it lasts quite a long time on my skin. The bottle itself is a gorgeous rich deep purple with gold accents. I believe this was an LE flanker in 2012, but it can still be found for relatively cheap all over.
