I refuse to chase dragons, so sadly I'll never know the legend it apparently once was. It's on the same level as the original Dolce & Gabbana (for women).
I recently bought this fragrance blind because I have an ongoing love affair with Vanilla and violet. The bottle reminds me of my youth, and the smell does, too. I own both, but find them just too much work to wear. It's rather Poison-esque, this one, as evidenced by the ample amount of notes they share.
My little pony butts with a heavy punch of flowers. It starts smokey and strong but then it turns to sensous vanilla. This fragrance is wild in every possible way, it screams seduction! However, while Poison is the quintessential 80's powerhouse, I find Lou Lou packs even more of a punch with its nose-burning smokiness. I've only smelled the original version, and currently own the EDP in the squat blue glass bottle with a thin red stopper/dabber, and this is what I am basing my review on.
Read more about Lou Lou Cacharel in Loulou – The Fragrance of Pandora's Box Lou Lou was launched in 1987. Lou Lou reminds me very much of an opaque Vanderbilt.
So, it's great, but I have plenty of Vanderbilt, and it's just too similar to have been a worthwhile purchase for me.
I'm not normally one to bemoan reformulation, but the current version is sorely short on the incense that would set it apart. This creation is well nigh unwearable it's so strong, growling, hissing, spitting, almost caustic in its effect.
One of the top selling perfumes of the 1980-es, one of those bold, powerful, distinguishing, and timeless fragrances.
Loulou is a controversial perfume that people either like, or dislike, the one that provoke different emotions, and indifference for sure is not one of them.
Loulou is a fragrance dangerous like Pandora's Box.
Loulou is like intoxicating dark red flower which allures you to the depth of dangerous and dark forest. It is irresistible and once you are engrossed by its warm scent, you simply have to let go and follow it, you have to pick the forbidden fruit.
The perfume is built around the beautiful and sensual scent of Tiare flower, the Tahitian symbol of welcoming and generous offer.
The top notes are composed of violet, plum black currant, marigold and anis; the heart of sweet Tiare flower is accentuated with the notes of tuberose, ylang-ylang and orange blossom; all that is followed by powdery trace of orris and Tonka bean, and sensual mix of vanilla and balsam.
This sensual, wild and mysterious perfume is captured in an opaque blue and red flacon of a simple octagonal straight-lines shape that narrows towards the top.
Earlier version of the bottle was designed like Alladin’s lamp with blue octagonal base and red spiky top.
