marc jacobs lola

review swatch photo

My new recent addition to my perfume collection is Marc Jacobs Lola. I bought it on a whim after my flatmate spirited it in The Perfume Shop and I couldn't get it out of my head. Lola includes notes of pink pepper, pear, ruby red grapefruit, peony, rose, geranium, vanilla, creamy musk and tonka. I find it very rose like at first, very floral with a hint of vanilla. It lasts a good ammount of time on as I find I get whiff's throughout the day without needing to top it up. The bottle itself is really showy-offy, over the top and cutesy. I think its super eye-catching and looks amazing on my dresser, although I can see some people thinking it might be a bit tacky but I personally like it. I personally really love it, I think it's interesting and different perfume and I really like it. I think its fairly safe but I enjoy it!

  3. I'm not a fan of Marc Jacobs fragrances although I seem to be the only one not to be. I wish I was as they have such lovely bottles. I especially like the bottle for the fragrance Dot.

  7. I love this but have smelt it so often I've started to grow tired of it. I'm quite a fan of 'Dot' the new MJ one though!

  31. Lola is one of my favourite perfumes! I absolutely love the bottle, I don't think it looks tacky at all. Just gets a little dusty when you leave them out on a dressing table haha xo

  32. unfortunately i already have a number of full bottles of perfume to get through so i'm not on the market for a new one. however i absolutely LOVE the bottle! all of marc jacobs' bottles are so pretty and girly. but i from what i can remember when i spritzed this perfume, i wasn't too keen but i reckon i could give it another go!
