Lola Eau de Parfum by Marc Jacobs


Am I the only one guilty of buying a fragrance just for the packaging? Of course I still love the way they all smell, but you can definitely see a theme with my perfume collection: they're all yellow! When my husband came home from the U.S. a few weeks ago bearing gifts, I was very excited! As he told me it was a Marc Jacobs fragrance, I could already envision the pretty Daisy bottle sitting next to its new companions... But as I open his bag, I see this monstrosity that is Lola. Trying not to look too disappointed, I sprayed the perfume on my wrist and let out a very unconvincing "It smells nice!". I really wasn't a fan of the slightly floral scent at first...

As the days went by, I still wore it and really tried to like it and it worked! It sits in its own little special corner. It's not like I can have it sitting next to the other ones, it just doesn't go! But packaging issues aside, this is a very good quality fragrance. I have never tried Daisy, but I've seen many people describe Lola as its "older, trouble making step sister"! I find this definitely smells very womanly, I don't think it would be appropriate for a young girl, for example. I love how it is sophisticated, but with an edge. I feel like it's perfect for someone in their 20s, grown up but still very cool and understated. It is now my favourite perfume in my collection. And to my husband's luck, it is an EDP, so at least he got that right! I always prefer EDP, as the scent is more intense and lasts longer than with EDT (at least in my experience). You can find Lola at FeelUnique.com , £63 for 100ml

Have you tried Daisy or Lola? What are your thoughts?

  3. I am a sucker for good packaging. I'm so easily distracted - I'm probably every marketer's dream sucker haha.
    I've never tried Lola, but based on your review, I just may try a sample. I don't think my style is super womanly per say but I am curious to see how it would fit me. I do have Daisy and I quite like it though. Thanks for the review!
