I’m a huge fan of perfume and love wearing a new scent each day. While my taste tends to run toward cool, water scents, there are days I really want to do something a bit different. When I received the Elle L’aime Lolita Lempicka for Women for review, I was completely unfamiliar with the brand. Lolita Lempicka is a French fashion designer and perfume creator. Her first scent, self titled “Lolita Lempicka” was released in 1997.
Elle L’aime Lolita Lempicka for Women
Lolita Lempicka launched a new fragrance for women in the fall of 2013. Elle L’aime is a warm fragrance with a hint of the Orient. It is a very exotic, sensual scent that would work perfectly for evening parties where you want to come across as a confident, sexy woman. Notes include bergamot, neroli, lime, coconut, jasmine, ylang-ylang, vanilla, sandalwood and myrrh.
When I first read the description of the perfume notes, I was a bit worried the lime and coconut would give Elle L’aime a bit of a “sunscreen” scent. I don’t get that impression at all from this scent. Overall, to me, Elle L’aime has a more citrusy feeling to it with just the very slightest hint of coconut and vanilla. It’s definitely a very bold, seductive scent that I would find most appropriate for evening wear. The sillage alone will ensure all eyes will be on you as you walk through the room.
I definitely got a full eight to ten hours plus of wear for this scent. No need to reapply during the day to continue to enjoy it. The citrus notes do wear off as the day progresses and Elle L’aime turns into a more floral, feminine scent instead.
I was quite impressed by the Elle L’aime bottle. The crystal and gold appearance does lead you to expect an oriental, seductive scent which is quite fitting. It has just the right amount of femininity without being girlish and cute. Definitely a scent you’ll want to wear when you need that extra burst of confidence at a party.
Lolita Lempicka’s Unlock the Mystery Collection is the perfect gift for someone you love this holiday season, $100 at Neiman Marcus. The set includes a jasmine, ylang-ylang, neroli, sandalwood, and coco scented 80ml Eau de Parfum, 50ml Body Lotion, and Jewelry Cuff designed by the Lolita Lempicka family.
