A Beautiful Licorice and Anise Fragrance!
This is my first fragrance from Lolita Lempicka, and that means I have nothing to compare this fragrance to, nor can I compare to previous Lolita Lempicka fragrances for men. This is my first fragrance with licorice, anise, and wormwood, and I really enjoy this blend together. I've read some not so favorable reviews regarding this release, and I'm not sure I understand some of the dislike (probably because I cannot compare to previous compositions). So perhaps this is an unbiased review? This is an amazing fragrance in terms of scent, however the only downside is the longevity or projection. I need to spray about 8 - 10 times to get 2 - 3 hours out of this fragrance (I'm okay with this however - and I realize some of the frag-heads in the community would say "this sucks"). I'm really enjoying the sweetness of the almond, sugar and vanilla; the soft spiciness of the wormwood, anise and licorice; and the woody and ivy notes. Not sure if I smell the rose water or rum? I would definitely recommend this fragrance guys! Safe to wear for any occasion, for any season, and for any workplace. I give this one 8 / 10 and only because of the longevity and projection issues, otherwise it would be 10 / 10 for sure!
