Category: Floral Fruity Gourmand
Notes: Pure licorice flower extract, organic patchouli.
The Bottle: A pure crystal apple with crystal pâte leaves wound around it (and paired with a delightfully old fashioned stopper), this little jewel is rather like something out of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Perfectly balanced and serenely fairytale-esque, criticizing this bottle would be a little like criticizing organized religion – it could be done, you might have a point, but lots of people will still be waiting in the wings to stab you. A limited edition (and hugely expensive) treasure. *****
The Fragrance: Pure-hearted, sensual and intensely sweet, this is a valentine to the licorice lover. A cautious, woodsy patchouli winds in and out of the pure licorice flower heart, and the combination winds around you like some sort of delicious gourmand serpent. If it were possible to taste with the nasal passages, all wearers of this marvelously sweet juice would slip directly and irrevocably into a glorious diabetic coma. A purer, much more intense version (parfum extrait) of the Lolita Lempicka signature scent, and one that quickly gets into your blood. *****
