Marc Jacobs Lola Perfume Bargain

Today I thought I'd share with you my latest perfume purchase:

Lola by Marc Jacobs
Talk about gorgeous packaging, from the box to the bottle, this perfume has been designed to look as though it smells floral and feminine before you've even smelt it.  Imagine receiving this as a gift- it looks great as a gift set and the bottle looks gorgeous on any dressing table.  It's a little on the tacky side but fabulous all the same.

This particular set also contains the silky shower gel and the sensual body lotion.

Scent wise, this perfume isn't something I'd usually go for as I usually like strong scents; I've listed some of my favourites below.  It's unlike anything in my collection and I think that's why I've enjoyed wearing it so much.  Its a long lasting scent without being too strong and overpowering.  It's sexy, very feminine and not something that everyones wearing, which I like.  One of my favourite perfumes is Alien by Thierry Mugler but its so instantly recognisable whereas Lola is a little more mysterious.  Lots of people have asked which perfume I'm wearing which is lovely.  Other than saying its fruity, rosie and floral, I'm useless at describing scents.  I'd recommend giving it a spray at the counter next time you're out shopping as fragrance is such a personal choice anyway.
This gift set was an absolute bargain.  It was originally in Boots for £50 but I managed to pick three of these gift sets up for £25 each in the Boots January sale.  What a bargain!  I'll be keeping one for myself and giving the other two as gifts to friends on their birthday.

My Favourite Fragrances
Elle by YSL, Alien by Thierry Mugler, Agent Provocateur, Gucci by Gucci, Amor Amor by Cacharel, Bond no9 Fire Island, Couture Couture by Juicy Couture, Lady Million by Paco Rabanne, Armani She, Deep Night by Ghost, Jean Paul Gaultier Classique, Deep Red by Hugo Boss.
