The first masculine perfume from Lolita Lempicka is called Au Masculin and was introduced in 2000. Following the success of the feminine scents, the name is meant as a play of words, given that “au” could be interpreted as “eau” which is French for water. So, this Eau de Toilette is an oriental vanilla fragrance, developed by perfumer Annick Menardo.
The structure of Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin revolves around the liquorice wood note, which confers it a powerful and masculine character. The inspiration for the fragrance is revealed on the official website, where the phrase “beneath a man’s tough exterior lies a tender heart” says it all. As a result, the intention of the designer was to present a masculine world in which Romance plays a big part, and from what I have sniffed I must say that the task was achieved beautifully.
Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin begins with an intoxicating blend prepared from the liquorice wood, ivy, aniseed and absinth. Then, as the fragrance reaches its heart, in approximately 20 minutes, an even more interesting facet is revealed , sustained by the combined aroma of rum, barley water and violet. The base is the part in which Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin turns mysterious, thanks to its mixed notes of cedar wood, cistus, Tonka bean and vanilla.
The bottle that holds Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin looks like a re-interpretation of the original shapes introduced by the feminine line. The symbol of the flask aims at expressing duality: on one side, the strength suggested by the tree shape and on the other, the emotion evoked by the image of the heart carved into the half-frozen glass’s surface. Overall, Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin is a special fragrance dedicated to a man with a powerful character.
