This is a bottle of Lolita Lempicka EdP by Lolita Lempicka, in the typical whimsical bottle. This perfume was released in 2012 and is still available. There was an older version from 1997 which is discontinued. The older bottle was more purple, while this is more blue. Usually I’m not a fan of fancy bottle design, but I truly love this fairy apple. The stem, which is also the sprayer is a bit fragile, sadly, so be careful not to drop it as it will fall onto the stem (the upper part of the apple is heavier). Normal spraying is okay, though.
The perfumer for Lolita Lempicka EdP is Annick Ménardo.
From the code on my bottle I can tell it was produced in 2016, which is interesting because last year when I used up my sample of this perfume I wrote the following lines in my used up post:
I like it quite a bit. It smelled of cherry candy and liquorice. It smelled a bit dusty and light at the same time, like a young girl wearing an old dress. Quirky. Sadly, as far as I can tell, Lempicka aren’t sold in stores in Austria anymore and online retailers only have a few leftovers of this particular perfume.
It’s so funny because to me it feels like that episode where I used up a sample and went to buy the full size only to not find it anywhere (not even online – when I mentioned online retailers I meant like ebay) must have happened years ago – but it was only last year??? It must just have been a shortage in supply because only months afterwards this perfume was back at every drugstore chain. So now I have my bottle. I still love it. It’s sweet but so different from other sweet perfumes.
If you don’t know how it smells like I totally recommend at least trying it out. It won’t be to everyone’s taste, but honestly I find it quite iconic.
