Over break I went on a fragrance frenzy in search of my new scent. Unfortunately, for the past year I had forgotten about perfume and was surviving on only deodorant. After hours sampling, smelling, and getting nauseous in Nordstroms department store, I discovered lola. (You may also like Joe Malone Red Roses, Michael Kors Very Hollywood, and Gucci if you are looking for something new)
The best part about my pick is…
Marc Jacobs describes this perfume as “confident and slightly vampy older sister” to fragrance Daisy launced in 2007…. and my little sister wears Daisy :) Thought it was cute that we found these sister fragrances separate of each other.

“Where Daisy is more innocent and sweet, Lola is more sensual — the name conjures up a flirtatious, warm spirit,” said Marc Jacobs. “It was the first thing that came to my mind, and I was very insistent with Coty that this had to be the concept. It just felt natural in contrast to Daisy.” via WWD
The new scent was developed by Marc Jacobs with Calice Becker of Givaudan and Ann Gottlieb, top notes include: pink peppercorn, pear d’anjou and ruby red grapefruit. Middle notes include: fuchsia peony, rose and geranium, and the dry down is of vanilla, tonka bean and creamy musk. As usual you can’t expect less from Marc Jacobs, the bottle design is very special as well each bottle differs according to their size.
