Smell This: Lolita Lempicka’s Elle L’aime

Hello angels,

It’s been a while since I posted a fragrance review! With this post, I want to introduce Lolita Lempicka’s Elle L’aime to you. I’ve always loved all of Lolita’s fragrances. In three words, I would describe most of the fragrances as feminine, playful and romantic. This one is no different!

According to Lolita Lempicka, Elle L’aime, the newest fragrance from the brand was inspired by the radiance of a woman in love and it embodies the divine state of being in love!  With this fragrance, Lolita Lempicka writes an important page of its own story that has always been at the heart of the brand: “L” for Lolita and “Lem” for Lempicka. Pretty clever, huh?

Take a look at the above picture – how gorgeous is the bottle? Its beauty truly cannot be ignored so let’s start by talking about the bottle. The totem shaped golden jewel of a bottle captures a lot of light that apparently symbolizes eternal love to anyone who possesses it. What I love the most is the gold letters that are inscribed on it! Stunning isn’t it? This is one of those perfume bottles that’s worth keeping long after the juice within has been emptied.

Moving on to the scent – It’s a very warm and sensual oriental-floral! It is currently my perfume of the day so as I write this, I am constantly sniffing my wrists to try and get the entire feel of it more! Haha. The notes include rare and natural extracts of a Coconut Flower infused with sensuous Jasmine and precious Myrrh. It blends a luxurious floral bouquet and the sensuous charm of a natural coconut pulp. The coconut scent is predominant and unfortunately, it’s not as long-lasting as I hoped it would be but this sweet and warm fragrance has been my selected scent for this whole week so far. It provides a certain delicacy and softness that I miss on busy days and transports me to an ethereal world the minute I spritz it on.

Rewind – How about you direct your eyes back up to the subheader? A shutterbug in love! That’s right – I am completely mesmerized by the beauty of this gem hence I got all click-happy with the camera! Here are some other shots.

I know, I know – they’re all taken in pretty much the same angles but oh well! Back to the perfume now – Elle L’aime EDP, the essence of true love is available for AED 305 for the 40ml bottle and AED 425 for the 80ml bottle. It can be purchased from Paris Gallery and Areej stores in the UAE from the second week of October.

I love the perfume’s film campaign – take a look:
