My Must-Have #10 is Marc Jacob’s Velvet-Edition Lola Fragrance!

Lola is hands down my favorite scent, and now I MUST HAVE this new Limited Edition bottle! Love it!!

To celebrate her first anniversary this fall, LOLA surprises us with a collectible, limited edition bottle. Chic, fashionable, and more luxurious than ever—introducing LOLA VELVET EDITION.

Reflecting Marc Jacobs’ sophistication mixed with a touch of mischief, LOLA is dressed in a new bottle with a soft, velvety cap. Marc’s velvet creation shows off a rich new wardrobe – playful, stylish and unexpected.

The voluptuous 50 ml LOLA is reinvented in a sophisticated yet light-hearted design. The colorful flower petals blooming from the cap have an added soft and velvety texture that’s irresistible to touch.

The bottle is reimagined in a vibrant shade of violet. The glass is frosted, adding a warm and comfortable radiance with a gold logo.

The gold outer carton is designed with the same violet border and multicolored flower – Chic, with an elegant finish.

*Bottle Designer: Marc Jacobs

The new VELVET EDITION Features the Original LOLA fragrance in a luxurious limited edition bottle.

Flirtatious and playful, this captivating fragrance is the essence of the LOLA woman.

LOLA is a warm floral bouquet – irresistibly alluring, vividly tempting. The fragrance is an intoxicating swirl of rich layers, wrapping the skin in sensuous florals blooming with a signature note of the fuchsia peony.

Lola sparkles with fruity topnotes of delectable bright Pink Peppercorn, seductive Pear D’Anjou and succulent Ruby Red Grapefruit. The ultra-feminine heart is highlighted by the lavish Fuchsia Peony with soft touches of Rose and Geranium.

The base lingers on the skin exuding a warm and seductive aura with enveloping notes of smooth Vanilla, Tonka Bean and creamy Musk
