Review - Marc Jacobs Lola

It dawned on me the other day that I haven't done a full fragrance review yet so I though it was about time! It's quite surprising really because I'm a real perfume lover and I have quite the little collection!

I'm quite fickle when it come to fragrance, I definitely don't have a signature scent as such, but I do have some favourites that I'll always buy again when they run out. I think life is too short to wear the same fragrance everyday! I generally like floral scents particularly anything with peony, rose and jasmine . In the summer I like ones with a touch of something citrusy, like bergamot or mandarin, and in the winter warmer musks and amber. I realise that's quite a few ingredients so I usually go for fragrances that combine them in different ways. 

Lola by Marc Jacobs is one of my favourites, I usually wear it in the evenings if I'm going out, its a floral with warm musky undertones yet it manages to be completely contemporary. Here's what's in it;

The Top Notes: Pink Peppercorn, Pear, Ruby Red Grapefruit

The Heart Notes: Rose, Fuschia Peony, Geranium

The Base Notes: Vanilla, Warm Tonka Bean, Creamy Musk

It has a combination of florals, citrus and musk, which must be why I like it so much! This is definitely one of the ones I'll be buying again! The bottle is really interesting too, it's made of heavy glass with a huge multicoloured rubber flower as a lid, it really does take centre stage on the dressing table but it doesn't travel very well, but then, you can't have it both ways!

Lola by Marc Jacobs Eau De Parfum is available in 3 sizes, 30ml, 50ml  and 100ml.

What is your favourite fragrance?
