Lolita Lempicka Perfumes

It has been a long time since I bought myself perfume which is quite odd for someone who loves it. I think it's down to the fact I work somewhere that is highly perfumed... Anyway, I thought as a birthday treat I'd buy myself a couple of perfumes by French designer and perfume maker, Lolita Lempicka.



I opted for signature fragrance 'Lolita Lempicka', in the Eau de Toilette, and 'Si Lolita', in the Eau de Parfum. I got these for an absolute steal at Fragrance Direct and I always check them out to see if they stock a perfume that I really want (they don't always have the new fragrances but if they do it is always cheaper!).

First thing's first, how lovely are the bottles? I collect perfume bottles and these look great amongst my collection - they are quirky without looking cheap which is great for having on display. I think the apple bottle of the signature fragrance is beautiful and I'm hesitant to use up the perfume as it looks so pretty inside!

Lolita Lempicka EDT is what I'd think of as a girly, innocent fragrance. It has a floral scent to it with an almost powdery scent that lingers on the skin. It is quite a delicate and faint fragrance, which is perfect for day time wear. It does not last long on the skin but when it is on you get wafts of it which is nice. I have to say I was disappointed with this one - it is so much weaker than it's perfume version (EDT is less concentrated than EDP) and I wish now I had spent a little more for the classic, and highly rated, eau de parfum version. I like the fragrance but I'd love it to be stronger.

Si Lolita EDP, on the other hand, is unforgettable. It is less soft than the Lolita Lempicka, and has more fruity tones with hints of spice. It smells quite peppery at first but on my skin the fruity smell still comes through after the fragrance has settled on the skin. It smells quite sophisticated to me and I feel quite grown-up wearing it! I love wearing it for nights out and it lasts ages on the skin.

Out of the two I purchased, I personally recommend Si Lolita. I like the other perfume, it's just too light for myself. It will get it's wear as my daytime scent but next time I'll opt for the EDP instead!

  1. Eau de parfum last longer then the eau de toilette. If you want a quality perfume you must buy eau de parfum.

  2. Yaya I love these perfumes, but you don't see it around much. I first tried it in a glossy box four years ago and then asked for it for my birthday. (Yikes that means my perfume is four years old, is that bad?!) Mine is in the apple shaped bottle but a different fragrance, it doesn't say which one but it's not the purple one. I'm going to have a look on that site as it might be a good ask for Christmas.
