After the huge success of 2007’s Daisy, Marc Jacobs introduced a new fragrance called Lola. Arrived on the market in August 2009, Lola is targeted as a “confident and slightly vampy older sister” of Daisy, according to the description from the official press release. Moreover, the official website introduces Lola with the phrase: “sexy with a fun flirtatious wink, Lola is playfully alluring and irresistible tempting”.
Reportedly, Marc Jacobs imagined Lola as “an electrifying over-the-top bouquet exploding from the bottle” and his ideas were brilliantly embodied by perfumers Calice Becker and Yann Vasnier. Lola received the 2010’s FiFi Awards for Women’s Luxe Fragrance of the year and belongs to the floral fruity olfactory group.
I sampled Daisy over my wife’s skin and after being pleasantly surprised by its aroma, I imagined that Lola will reveal a more sensual facet, with a similar floral arrangement. And I am happy to tell you that I was right. Lola exhibited a nice projection of her skin throughout the entire development stage, so I guess it is worth a shot.
The fragrance starts off with a pungent mix of pink pepper, pear and ruby red grapefruit. Soon after the opening, the mid development follows in approximately 10 minutes, in an enchanting floral blend that employed the notes of rose, peony and geranium. Then, in the final part, Lola turned to a musky based, thanks to the combination of Tonka bean, vanilla and musk.
The bottle that holds Lola is shaped in the same way as her younger sister Daisy, having nice curves and placing the emphasis on a fantasy stopper that looks like a rose with modified petals. The purple color scheme is balanced by the golden hue braiding that adorns the bottle’s neck.
