Marc Jacobs Lola Eau de Parfum (100ml)*, £63 || Fragrance Direct

I don’t have many favourite perfumes; in fact, I can list them all in one hand: Chanel No 5, YSL Manifesto, Dior Hypnotic Poison, Dolce Gabanna Light Blue and Dior J’adore. I’m very loyal when it comes to fragrances and my taste is quite particular; I like strong scents, a bit musky, a bit sexy and ever so slightly floral. All of the ones above tick those boxes, apart from Dolce Gabanna Light Blue, which is a much fresher smell and therefore, it’s mostly my daytime fragrance.

When Fragrance Direct got in touch with me and offered to kindly send me a perfume, I was instantly drawn to the bottle of Marc Jacobs Lola; I always like Marc Jacobs perfume bottles, but I haven’t smelled many of them, so I just never bothered. When I looked up the notes of ‘Lola’, I immediately knew it would contend with the top 5 perfumes I mentioned before; pink peppercorn, rose, vanilla and musk are some of them, which makes Lola a warm floral fragrance with a sexy kick to it.

It’s described as ‘sexy with a fun flirtatious wink’ and I totally agree. The cap was designed by Marc Jacobs as an over the top and lavish floral bouquet exploding from the bottle; it expresses what ‘Lola’ is all about – tempting, fun, flirty and sexy. Lola starts off quite strong and it softens throughout the day, but I find that the scent doesn’t last as long as some of my other favourite perfumes.

This perfume is right up my street! It’s definitely a more mature and strong fragrance, so if you’re into soft and sweet fragrances, I’d give this one a miss. But, if you like more musky and spicy perfumes or if you just want that cute little bottle sitting pretty on your dressing table, this is definitely worth a sniff! Thanks to Lola, I now have a handful of favourite perfumes, plus 1.

    Uau! Além de linda a embalagem, parece ser incrível a fragrância.
    Ysis, não sei se você já falou, mas adorei sua penteadeira. Poderia mostrar mais detalhes dela?

    Beijão :)

    Photos you made are to die for. Especially the first one! I’d like to have it just because of the bottle, scent itself didn’t impress me too much, but it isn’t too bad either.
