Let’s talk Lola. She is super gorgeous, smells like a dream and I just love her. Marc Jacobs hit a home run with his latest fragrance, Lola. Seriously. And I’m not just saying that because I like to stare at the bottle (even though I do, it’s my kind of décor!) It’s because Lola is my kind of fragrance. It’s a flirty, playful perfume and is so dynamic.
When you first spritz it on, you get hints of pink peppercorn, pear and grapefruit. Then the floral notes start to kick in – peony, geranium and rose – and then layers of vanilla, tonka bean and creamy musk appear. And while I’m not always the best judge of notes and technical fragrance speak – I think this is very accurate. It’s not too floral, too fruity or musky. I think it’s a perfect balance of all of the scents I like to wear.
On my last trip to Nordstrom, they were promoting this fragrance and handed out a braided bracelet that had been soaked in the fragrance. I wore it around all day and couldn’t stop smelling my wrist and asking others to smell it too! Even though this was a month ago, I still have that braided bracelet and it still smells like Lola.
I’ve added this to my Christmas list! I’m pretty sure I need a bottle of this on my dresser. Right now, Sephora has some great sets available – and from now until November 2, they are 20% off with code FF2009. My personal favorite – this solid perfume ring…
