"A fragrance is like a signature, so that even after a women leaves the room, her fragrance should reveal she's been there"
Oscar de la Renta

It all started on Friday night when the parents started asking me really random questions about the price of perfumes, the names, the brands. What I liked, what I would buy, what was "in". Sometimes they do just ask random questions, sometimes they have a hidden agenda. I didn't really think anything about it till shopping in York yesterday and they avoided me going into Boots with them and then not telling me what they'd brought. That was until we was having a cuppa in the afternoon and they passed me a box;

The box is as gorgeous and as striking as not only the bottle but that of the perfume. It was my treat from my mam from the money passed to her through the inheritance, with herself, my dad and myself being brought one special something. My present is the gorgeous, gorgeous Lola perfume by Marc Jacobs.
The bottle is utterly impressive and gorgeous. Its so slick and sexy in its curves, blossoming out into a divine and overtly loud plastic multi-hue rose which I know can now be brought as a ring. As part of the Coty fashion house, you couldn't really expect anything less, especially with its for-runner of Daisy which if you remember I treated myself too in the Christmas sales. While I utterly love vintage perfume bottles, Marc Jacobs offers the same brilliance to a contemporary audience and I love how the bottle shape changes depending on the size.

Every last detail is to the point, nothing is wasted and its all just so very eye catching. The perfume itself is described [by The Perfume Shop - because I just couldn't describe the smell at all apart from "yum"] as a floral scent, one that is relax, cool and confident in a modern and sexy manner.

Hope everyone is having a grand weekend - I'm just lazying around watching Aladdin which I haven't seen for many a year, strangely enough it's both mine and JJ's favourite Disney films. Not really looking forward to the next week at work, ah well.
