An unknown gem
A review written first on my personal blog:
Lolette is a scent from "the first contemporary perfume house in India," according to All Good Scents's own promotional materials that came with the perfume. Rajiv Sheth is the perfumer behind the line, but the fragrances themselves are manufactured in Grasse, France.

I originally added it to my "want list" because I love coconut in perfumes, and this one intrigued me with the addition of pimento (you know--the little red peppers that are inside of green olives?) and jacaranda wood (which I had never smelled). The only way to get it is to know someone from India who can bring it over...and luckily, we do happen to have Indian friends! It was purchased from the Indian Amazon site for 1,050 rupees for 50 mL. (I paid USD$16.)

I finally received it last night, and I couldn't control myself, so I spritzed my hand once. It is strong! And immediately I thought, "This smells like a root beer/cream soda mixed!" I don't like the taste of those sodas, but I have always liked how they smelled. I went to take my shower, and the perfume was still on my hand afterward. (Actually, it was still on there when I woke up in the morning, albeit faintly.) Also, about 2 hours after my shower, I wandered back into the family room, and I could smell that one spritz I had made two hours previously...AND I sprayed it in the kitchen, which was about 20 feet away from where I was smelling it! Ladies, this is a beast, performance-wise! It is strong and obviously has great sillage and longevity. This perfume is best for evening wear, as it is very rich and dramatic.

As to the time of year best to wear this hidden treasure, I would say cooler temperatures such as spring and fall. Winter, with its extreme cold could work. I'm on the fence about wearing it in summer...although here I am on this July 20th wearing it all day in 100 degree heat! The reason for this caution is because it's really rich and almost heady--if you don't have the personality and charisma (or stomach!) to carry this off in the heat of summer, I would save it for cooler days. Not to mention, it could overwhelm everyone else around you in the heat with it's monstrous sillage! If you elect to wear it out on a summer evening, please stick with one spray! And that one spray is pretty direct and concentrated, not a fluffy puff of fine particles.

So, what does it smell like?! It doesn't smell "Indian" or spicy or incense-y, really. The plum and apricot don't make it fruity; they just harmonize the scent with a bit of sweetness at the top. Vanilla gives it a bit of sweetness at the bottom, but this is not overly sweet. I would classify it as a powdery floral, with oriental undertones. It is really lovely--not super complex, but not totally linear either. The coconut isn't strong, but it's there. No idea what a pimento would smell like, as I've only ever smelled them in an olive. The tuberose and jasmine (no "rotting" smell here) were what worried me because both can induce headaches in me when they're too overwhelming. Those notes are not strong here, but weave in and out with the coconut and wood note (it's the jacaranda wood, I guess, but I wouldn't know because I've never smelled that). It's a powdery-woodsy-creamy-slightly sweet floral. Really well done. I don't get the rose note, but the vanilla and woods are present in the drydown. This lasts hours, people! Easily 9 to 12+! It does project less as the day goes by, but if it's in your hair, it will throw every time you move your head! And I sprayed once on the back of my neck/hair and once on my arm. A little goes a LONG way, but it's fabulous! This is an obscure and unknown gem. I'm very happy to have it in my collection.
