Hey there Posse, Lolita Lempicka EdP turns 20 this year! I can’t believe the magical apple has been in my collection and others around me for so long. I just bought a new bottle to replace my last one. and it’s still almost as fun, silly, easy to wear and beautiful as it has always been with just an extra hint of cheapening, or maybe it has had to change some ingredients to comply. Whatever, it still smells great.
Lolita Lempicka EdP by Annick Menardo for Lolita Lempicka 1997
Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Anise, violet, green ivy
Heart: Licorice, almond, orris, iris, cherry, amaryllis, heliotrope
Base: Tonka, vanilla, white musk, vetiver, praline
Imagine being able to spray yourself in a liquorice, sugar almonds and praline fizzy drink? Well if you can imagine that without all the inherent stickiness then you have a pretty fair idea of how Lolita Lempicka EdP is going to smell. Or maybe you can imagine the first fizzy moment when you put a PEZ lolly in your mouth?
Hailed as the greatest love child of the monster Angel. Lolita Lempicka takes all the good, adds its own twist and dials the size down to 6. I am no great fan of Angel but I am a fan of Lolita Lempicka EdP, it is a calmer, prettier and less strident good time, there is still the candy floss vibe but without the headache inducing enormity.
I bet you smell this in the street more often than you know. Even after 20 years still available from department stores, drug stores and the discounters online.
So are you team Angel or team Lolita Lempicka? Yes, you can be both
