Marc Jacobs Lola Perfume Review

Marc Jacobs Loves Lola. (Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola)

In my mind, there are two Marc Jacobses: the slightly nerdy guy who appeared in Sonic Youth videos, and the slick, slim cool-guy megadesigner he is now. And maybe it's just me, but I kinda miss the dorky Marc who loved the more obviously offbeat. Fortunately, there's a bit of both Marcs in his latest fragrance, Lola ($65-85).

Like Daisy before it, Lola is a scent for the young — which makes sense for a fragrance whose name has Nabokovian connotations. Like so many recent launches, it's another fruity floral fragrance, filled with notes of pear, grapefruit, pink peppercorn, peony, rose, and geranium. After the initial burst of brightness, it settles into a warmer, more nuanced vanilla-musk scent that makes Lola feel a little more grown-up than its first moments suggest. It's pleasant and soft, and it's bound to be a hit among the young. But if you're old enough to remember the Reagan administration, this candy-sweet scent might not be the right fit for you.

Leslievanhouten, I don't know Gucci Flora, so I can't say. It doesn't smell like Exclamation, though they could be distant cousins. And re: Lola:
She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita.
One of my favorite books, if not *the* favorite.

Ooh, I love fruity scents! This sounds very promising - I'll definitely check it out. (But I don't remember any of the Reagan years... so perhaps that's why? :-p)

Does this smell like Gucci Flora? (description is similar), which smells exactly like Coty Exclamation. The name Lola doesn't make me think of Nabakov (needs the 'ita') but it does make me think of the Kinks "I'm not dumb but I can't understand why she walked like a woman and talked like a man. zoh my Lola, lo lo lo lo, Lola"
