One glaring omission in my favorite perfumes blog: No mention of Lolita Lempicka’s namesake scent.
I love this perfume, from its gilded, fruit-shaped purple bottle to its sweet, powdery fragrance, a pretty-yet-chaotic hodgepodge of scents that range from ivy leaves to violet to vanilla and musk. It’s such an unusual fragrance, and immediately identifiable; every once in a while I’ll catch a whiff of a woman wearing it in public and I’ll think, "Oh, Lolita Lempicka!" I’ve been so busy obsessing over Anna Sui and Thierry Mugler, however, that I completely neglected to investigate whether Ms. Lempicka ever created any other perfumes. Fortunately, today I discovered that she has - not just one, but two! And, not surprisingly, I want.
Her second perfume, L de Lolita Lempicka, is sea-themed, from the translucent blue-green of the bottle with its golden netting to the mysterious fragrance it contains, which combines elements like bitter orange, cinnamon and vanilla. Absolutely perfect for summer!
Lempicka’s newest perfume is Forbidden Flower, which comes in a bottle not unlike that of the original fragrance, only this time the color is a bright gold rather than a rich purple. While the original Lolita Lempicka is a "woody oriental" scent, Forbidden Flower is a "soft floral" with completely out-of-the-ordinary notes like absinth flower, strawberry leaf, peony and morello cherry musk. I can’t wait to get my hands on either one (or, with any luck, both!) of these new scents.
