Marc Jacobs Lola Velvet Limited Edition Eau de Parfum Spray Review, Photos
My first introduction to Lola was when I was a mere babe and my parents had this monster cabinet. Inside the cabinet was an 8-Track Tape Player, yeah, my parents are obviously old and stuff, and a record player. On an old 45 (those are what smaller records were called way back in the time of dinosaurs) was Lola. She was a Show Girl.
No, but seriously, my first introduction to anything Lola was a Show Girl that Barry Manilow sung his little lungs out about. These things stick with you well into adulthood when you’re exposed to them as such a young age so now anytime I hear Lola I simply think of that tune and my foot starts tapping and I have a sudden urge to burst into song.
Now Marc Jacobs Lola has that Show Girl vibe with a big giant flower decking its bottle topper and I can’t help but thing of super fabulous Show Girls (not the washed up variety, promise!).
Are you a Marc Jacobs Lola fan?
I am now.
To celebrate her first anniversary this Fall, Marc Jacobs launched a limited-edition Lola bottle, just as fabulous as she always was, but the petals of her flower topper are of the velvety variety. Of course, part of Lola’s appeal is her outrageous bottle. It’s fun, eccentric, and different.
Although Lola has been out and available for the past year this is my first try with the girl. I dunno why but I wasn’t sure I’d like her at first which is what kept my nose away but soon after trying a simple sniff I was hooked. She’s playful, flirty, and has a dominate note of rose which I simply adore. Rose and I are tight dontcha know.
But rose isn’t the only note that plays in this game. She opens up with a fresh burst of rose but notes of pink peppercorn near the beginning of her opening number and hints of fruity pear and tart grapefruit soon follow. Her dry down is warmer and she morphs into a sensuous vanilla with that beautiful linger of rose that I love so very much!
The bottle’s topper’s multi-layered cap shaped into a bursting bouquet may be what draws you to Lola at first but it’s her scent that will keep you around for longer.
No wilted flowers here, just pure, beautiful fragrance.
