Fruit Fizzy
I am laughing at the note "raspberry effervescent tablet" listed for Marc Jacobs OH, LOLA! The scent does remind me of an artificially fruit-flavored soda pop. It's less sweet than that, but the basic idea is conveyed all the same. Reddish berries. Could be raspberries. Could be gaspberries. Could be strawberries. Could be bogberries.

I read somewhere that Ann Gottlieb takes credit for what might be termed "the fruity turn" at Bath & Body Works. All of those fruit flavors apparently emerged with her encouragement and under her creative direction. Here, for Marc Jacobs, Gottlieb has collaborated with two other big noses (why it took three is a mystery to me... Calice Becker AND Yann Vasnier? WHAT????) to produce a fragrance in which the fruits have been given much more emphasis than the abstract flowers. The overall effect reminds me rather of the Victoria Secret Secret Garden line of (highly synthetic) fruity eaux de toilette, in particular the one named STRAWBERRIES & CHAMPAGNE.

To me, OH, LOLA! smells less appealing than most of the BBW bath flavors. From a business perspective, it probably does not matter much what went into the bottle, since the decorative plastic flower cap appears to be why people are buying the fragrances of the house of Marc Jacobs these days.

Not for me.

Tons of sweet, gooey berries
Oh Lola! by Marc Jacobs is berry, berry sweet. A play on words of course, but true to how it smells. Imagine the colour pink, berry flavoured lollipops, vanilla icecream and fruity shampoo, and you have basically conjured up the smell of Oh Lola! in your mind.

Lola was a little too musky and synthetic to my nose when I tried it a few years ago, so all in all Oh Lola! is a much more pleasant flanker. On the younger segment of the population, this fragrance could never smell out of place, but when I wear it, I feel like I've wiped seven years off my age. I am yet to determine whether or not that is a good thing.

This fragrance opens with a sugary burst of wild strawberry, fizzy raspberry, mushy pears and florals such as, cyclamen and peony. Neither ingredient is a hundred percent natural, opting for a sweeter and thus more chemical approach. The scent also packs quite a punch, and if applied too liberally, can cause a headache.

Oh Lola! is sweet without being a gourmand. It has some similarities to the original Lola, but comes off smelling much better, at least in my opinion. From afar I like the look of the bottle, but when I'm actually holding it in my hand, it feels awkward with the cap seeming unnecessary. To be sure, it's not something I'd reach for if I was in a hurry to get out the door of a morning.

I find this fragrance a little similar to Justin Bieber's fragrance, Someday. It would probably attract the same type of consumers too. In my opinion, both bottles are good for displaying, but not necessarily for wear. I can think of many other fragrances I would prefer to smell on young, teenage girls.

In my opinion, the expensive price tag is for the bottle design and elaborate packaging. The scent itself is not worth that much, and comes off rather cheap and generic. The lasting strength is good I must admit, but even that can't sway my final opinion. Oh Lola! is pleasant, but evidently not for me.
