So pretty it doesn’t matter how good it smells: Lola Marc Jacobs

 Lola Marc Jacobs

Sometimes a perfume bottle is so pretty it really doesn’t matter what’s inside it. It could be empty for all I care—I just want it because of how darn cute it will look on top of my dresser.

And that’s the case with Lola, Marc Jacobs’ hotly-anticipated olfactory follow-up to Daisy. (Yes, that’s a giant, multi-layered plastic bouquet on the top, and yes, it’s too cute for words.) But back to Daisy—Daisy and me, well, we were cool, but she was a little immature for me, if you know what I mean. But Lola is different. Lola is Daisy’s older sister, and she’s more serious. (I know this because of notes like pear d’anjou, fuchsia peony, geranium and musk. My verdict? Sophisticated but not heavy.)

And have you noticed? Lola’s so popular right now that she modelled for EVERY fashion magazine this month. (Don’t believe me? Take a look—she’s being featured everywhere!) And there’s no doubt in my mind that she’s currently sitting pretty atop MANY a beauty editor’s dresser (as all highly covetable new products are wont to do after photo shoots).

I wonder if she’s made friends with LeeLee, Sofia or Gina yet? (They’re the gals from Benefit’s recently launched Crescent Row collection). Not sure what the deal is right now with using first names for fragrances, but I do hope they all get along.

You’re so right! It’s on Sarah Daniel’s desk and I assume a bunch of others’!

I prefer Daisy, but I’m OBSESSED with LeeLee. Need to blog. Now.

It’s so true about the bottle being worth the price alone–and it would be sitting on my dresser except that I love my former intern so much I gave her mine as a parting gift. So all I gots is the lab sample.
