Perfume Review: L , Lolita Lempicka


Part of 14 Unforgettable Scents, Memorable Fragrant Writings Series. Portuguese version, click here

L , Lolita Lempicka

That is the last review of the special "14 Memorable Fragrant Writings" by Perfume da Rosa Negra. Finalizing this issue, I 've selected a fragrance to show you my love for a special vanilla, mine and from many vanilla followers around the world, no matter if this vanilla is applied on the culinary as aromatizer in cakes, cookies and others candies as well as scented raw material used to compose the heart and the base of various fragrances.

Vanilla is a must in compositions of the current perfumery, however in Lolita Lempicka L, the vanilla is a type of aesthetics by itself. The note provides the insight of beautifulness and also an contemplative effect of how a different vanilla may value a fragrance in a positive and innovative way, embracing its wearers with a pleasurable and comfortable sensation.

The fragrance was created by the brilliant Maurice Roucel, one of the most renowned noses in the selective group of master perfumers in the industry and one of the few professionals that I appreciate as a great talent. This admiration is not because of L, a tender and must have fragrance to my vanillic taste, but because he is autodidatic, determined, passionate and is very well successful on perfumery art as a natural gift and valuable effort. His learning oriented competency is clear and is base of all his career path. Among his creations, there are famous fragrances as Rochas Tocade and the best seller of Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle, the cult Musc Ravageur.

Released in 2006, Lolita Lempicka L had the same fate of its creator. A successful fate. L is a very feminine fragrance which could only be designed by a perfumer who is passionate for women, as said by Maurice Roucel. Currently this perfume is one of the most popular fragrances among those who love a vanilla scent and, more than only an amazing vanilla note, L features notes as bitter orange, bergamot, cinamon, musk and the rare immortal flower of Globe Amaranthus.

The concepts for the flacon and the fragrance value the mythical legend, also immortal, of a mermaid. This concept in Lolita Lempicka L can easily deceive anyone, because the first impression which is expected for a fragrance of this type is something smelling a citrusy, refreshing and light scent. A pure false impression. In L, the bergamot and the bitter orange imply subtle "hot" citrusy accords influenced by the note of cinamon that adds to the fragrance a more attractive , exotic and provokative scented profile, the same profile of sensuality found in a mermaid. The spicy note of cinamon joined to the bitter orange both cause an emotion as the song of a mermaid.

Mermaid scent

It is like a type of enchantment coming from the fragrance, it is like to hear the sweetness of sounds coming from these legendary myths, so seductive, going deeper in their world, become the own mermaid involved by immortal flowers and a soft vanilla cream. Something surreal, untouchable like a myth. The second image is the unrestrained desire of drowning in this blue sea, completely vanillic. Drinking this liquid that affects the taste sense as every gourmand scent affects the olfaction.

In the base of perfume, the woody vanilla with touches of cinamon interact together and can be compared to the olfactive memory of the sea's wind, that is the moment of staring the sea and enjoy it. In L, this moment is sweet and comfortable and has the beauty of a unique and distinct vanilla such the beauty of a mermaid rising from the sea. A fragrance for mermaids who wish to dive into a sea of vanilla and simply to love being a vanillic mermaid diva.
