Gwen Stefani L.A.M.B. L ~ fragrance review

Gwen Stefani LAMB L perfume advert

"Gwen's the muse of the unconventional," said Michele Scannavini, president of Coty Prestige Worldwide. "She has a style that is unmistakable, different, so unique that she can really create trends in the world. We are impressed by how global she is." (Women's Wear Daily, 12/7/2006)

Pop star Gwen Stefani launched her L.A.M.B. (Love. Angel. Music. Baby.) fashion label in 2003, and by all accounts it has been extraordinarily successful even while many other celebrity fashion lines are struggling. A perfume was sure to follow.

I don't really know much about Gwen Stefani, but L (or "L, a L.A.M.B. fragrance", as Nordstrom calls it) didn't sound like what you'd expect from the "muse of the unconventional", what with notes like "sparkling green freshness" and "leafy water hyacinth" (additional notes include freesia, pear, violet leaves, jasmine, rose, lily of the valley, sweet pea, orange blossom, frangipani blossom, peach skin, heliotrope and musk). Stefani noted that she wanted her fragrance to be "light, fresh and clean", another good indicator that we might not expect anything too edgy or unusual. (fragrance notes and quote via Women's Wear Daily, 3/20/2007)

"Sparkling green freshness" is actually the perfect description for L's opening. It is mildly green and citrusy, and has a big "fresh" note. The water hyacinth joins in fairly quickly, and after that, it is all rather a blur. There is a bit of pear, and if you pay very close attention, you might pick out a touch of rose or jasmine in the early stages. The sweet pea is more prominent than the other notes in the heart, but it mostly smells like an airy-watery blended floral with vaguely fruity overtones. It is soft and mildly sweet, but also rather diffusive, and the musky base is clean and pale and summery.

Gwen Stefani L perfume

Nordstrom is describing L as a "fusion of masculine and feminine", but the masculine is pretty well hidden — or at least, I couldn't find it. L is light, fresh and clean, and as such, it doesn't have a strong personality. It is more casual than sexy (unless you find "clean" very sexy). It isn't overly sweet or fruity, and while it is youthful, it doesn't, like much of its celebrity fragrance competition, smell like it is geared towards 'tweens. It is very wearable, and despite the fact that I don't find it terribly interesting, it is well done for what it is. Given the weak celebrity fragrance showing so far this year, it might well be the best of the lot. And the bottle is cool. I predict Nordstrom will sell a kajillion bottles of it.

Gwen Stefani L.A.M.B. L is available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum. The lasting power is very good. It is exclusive to Nordstrom until September, when it will go into wider distribution. A range of body products is also expected to follow, and Stefani is reportedly already working on the sequels.

    I've never thought Gwen Stefani was very musically talented, and felt her real talent lay in being a fashion innovator. I've always admired her sense of style, so I too had high hopes of her fragrance being something that stood out. But I also think that the chances of a celebrity fragrance ever being avante-garde or unusual are slim. These fragrances are put out for one reason: to make money. And to that end, it only makes sense that they will always be a little bland – they seek to cater to the largest percentage of the general population, and unfortunately, what most people seem to want is something clean, light, and inoffensively pretty. I worked as a fragrance sales associate at a major department store for two years, and part of what made me end up disliking the job was that, time after time, customers would come in and say, “I want something light and clean”, and attempts to show them something more interesting were usually met with, “That's too old-lady!” So, the marketers of celebrity scents know what they're doing in that respect; the majority of Americans have depressingly boring taste in fragrance.

    Wow Kiki…where are you from? I believe some of the most modern and most interesting scents have come from America; Le Labo, CB, Parfums Delrae, ect. It sounds like you worked at Macy's and your right, I bet fragrance enthusiasts are not going there for fragrant inspiration. I know the only time I go there to buy is when it's time for me to buy a gift for my mother in law:-)

    I happen to like GS, especially what she did with No Doubt, they were breaking ground back in the day with Ska so let's not take that away from her. I read a while back that her favorite fragrance was VS's Pear Glace… so thats why my hopes of something great coming from her was deflated. Still, I will make my way to smell it soon.

    M, what is your favorite of the celebrity scents (if any)?

    It is unconventional in that sense, anyway — it doesn't smell like the standard celeb fare we've been overloaded with the past few years. But then, that is also true of Prince 3121.

  8. Anonymous says:

    The bottle is actually a snazzed-up version of Gucci Envy for Men crossed with Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise. No points for originality there. It's kind of boring, considering what's possible nowadays with advances in manufacturing and packaging technology–look at Betsey Johnson's fantastic bottle (reminiscent of some of those giddy Lalique bottles such as the Clairefontaine).

    All true. Cumming: The Fragrance is the only celeb scent that was unusual, and doubt it made a mint.

    Hi Kayliana,

    Not arguing that we have some wonderful fragrance companies in the states – we do! (I am a huge Christopher Brosius fan, both from his time at Demeter – I used to live right down the street from their shop when they had a storefront in the East Village, that was fun! – and I also love the I Hate Perfume line) And yes, we certainly have our share of perfumistas and fragrance afficianados. But my point was that the *general public*, to whom these scents are marketed, want something on the safe side.

    How can one not like dear, sweet, cuddly Gwen S.? Ok, I confess I've got a crush on G (hoping GF won't read this) :) but in all fairness, I wasn't expecting L to be anything more than a reflection of her public persona – cheerful, childlike and bright. I admit I was hoping for a touch of Gwen's “innocent” glamor to be poured into in L, but since I won't be wearing her perfume anyway, I'll stick to watching her videos :)

    At least the bottle, though obviously similar to that for Envy, is totally in keeping with GS's glitzy esthetics.

    Ah, Gwenny, Gwenny… :)

    Gwen Stefani does a fruity floral. . .no doubt.

  25. Anonymous says:

    This one sounds like Snoresville to me. Another fruity floral “How Unique and different?”. Not much of a fan of this chick either. I just can't stand celebrity scents. They are always big letdowns. Plus for me a scent needs to stand on it's own merits and not the ones of a current “flash in the pan” celebrity that might be remembered years from now or not. That's why classics like No.5, Joy, Shalimar, Arpege, etc… didn't need a celebrity to associate them with. BUT No.5 did have many a poster girl for them like Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet, etc…. to keep the mystique alive though I soon forget. But still, it sold like hotcakes just by the name alone…. This one, I'm sure it will be at your nearest Walgreens soon.

    This post got me musing. Perhaps it isn't so much that the scents celebrities put out are so indistinguishable, as it is that the celebrities themselves are so indistinguishable.

    What do you suppose we would get if Meryl Streep, Glenn Close or Helen Mirren put out a women's fragrance? Or if Anthony Perkins, Paul Newman, or Geoffrey Rush instituted a fragrance for men? I would think that the greater depth of these perfume issuers or others like them would result in a fragrance of greater depth?

    Just sayin' ;)

  33. Anonymous says:

    Oh, I'd love to see a Helen Mirren scent! But in general, I rather doubt her fans are of the age where they'd buy a scent just because she put her name on it. I could be wrong, but I think younger women are far more likely to buy celeb fragrances than older women (?)

    GS (as a brand, not a singer) seems to have a very different (more upscale) audience than BS, probably because her clothing line is doing well in in pricier stores. The scent may end up in Walmart — you can get Shalimar at Walmart too — but BS Curious was never a 6 week exclusive at Nordstrom.

  37. Anonymous says:

    I admit, this wasn't as interesting as I'd hoped. However, she's only just getting started. And anybody can see a mile away that her next fragrance will be called “A”, and then we will get M and B. I predict at least one of the following ones will be a lot more interesting.

    If L were marketed as a genuine unisex fragrance, it could certainly have the potential to do well on the men's side, along with Fluer Du Male and Antidote (as a nice alternative to the other men's fragrances on the market)

  38. Anonymous says:

    It will be funny if she follows with A,M & B, since Mariah Carey is already doing M this year. Of course, L was already taken by Lolita Lempicka so perhaps they don't care :-)

    Hope you're right that her next effort will be more impressive.

    Hey guys, aren't you being a bit harsh? Plenty worse have come out than this one. That pear note mingles nicely with the mid florals creating a honey note, a little like mead (honey wine). I reckon it's quite nice and thankfully a world away from Daniele Steel, M, Kylie and the rest.

    Hi Robin, Have you smelled pear glace yet? I have been thinking of buying L.A.M.B.(how do you pronounce this?) It is here at the Wichita Kansas T.J. Max for $20.I don't know whether to get it or Anais Anais by Cacharel (an old love affair). The Pear Glace by Victoria's Secret is pushing me towards L.A.M.B.

    Since V.S. started putting the notes on their Garden Collection; Pear glace's notes are: Pear nectar, cassis, and violet. now I know why it's my favorite. To me, pear doesn't smell that much of a fruit to me; it seem to me to have a muskier earthier fruit…it's not as sweet as must fruits. Do you like pear as a note? I don't know whether to go with a known favorite, Anais Anais in it's discounted beautiful bottle ( I collect bottles). and it would go with my cottage shabby chic decor in my bedroom

    Could you give me your input? It isn't life or death. I can always take something back I think????

    Oh my gosh, I wrote that post last night on a heavy dose of Oxycontin for my back pain. I am surprised I made any sense at all. I apologize for any weirdness and all the typos. I just got a wild hair.

    Pear glace smells, to me, like A.G. Petite Cheri only not quite that bright. I hope that's not blasphemy to you. The V.S. P.G. (ha ha aren't initials handy?) just seems to be smoother and a little darker. There, you don't need to smell it…like I'm an expert!

    The Anais Anais is a coup too, $30 for the large bottle. But it's sealed. I remember it's soft and if someone was wearing it I would know exactly what it was-it is very distinctive. But I don't know if my taste has changed. I bought Glamorous by Ralph Lauren last week and I didn't love it anymore. Scary. Where might I find a review? and have you ever had this experience of a fragrance you've always loved, not smell lovely anymore?

    Thank you for your time,

    I actually fell in love with it. The top note is disgusting (no doubt)… but the second note is really sweet, and the third note blends perfectly with me. I'm not a perfume person… but I often find them to be just wrong. I sort of liked several vanilla smells, and Clinque Happy… but both were just mildly pleasant to me. I had never found a scent that was me. I went with a friend- and she approved of this one… after a 1/2 an hour of wearing it she smelled me and she said “it smells like you, when I smell it- I don't go “mmm, perfume” I go “mmm, christina”. ” ha ha, loved how she phrased that. Anyways, I always wanted something that was like that perfect guy cologne, only feminine. Gwen's L seems to fit me perfectly. Although, you do have to have the right chemistry for it. It smells horrible on my friend, and the top note isn't good. The second note is positively addicting and the third note was just what I was looking for. It lasts all day for me.

I expected the chemical/synthetic smell to fade with the dry down, but it didn’t. My friend wears this and it smells pleasant enough on her, but it unfortunately disagrees with my chemistry.

      The fresh note fades on me, luckily…sorry it didn’t on you!

    I love this one it’s for a lunch out with my girlfriends wearing jeans and heels. No doubt I will always have a bottle of it somewhere

      Hope they’ll keep making it then :-)

    Im wondering if shes going to come out w/ another scent soon.

    • Robin says:

      I really don’t know. I don’t think L sold nearly as well as the Harajuku Lovers…if I had to guess, that’s where I’d say they’ll do more fragrances.

    I sure hope thats not the case! I dont need 5 more fruity florals! Another L.A.M.B. fragrance really needs to happen.

    • Robin says:

      Only Coty knows for sure, I’m just guessing!

    Yeah what a bummer. I guess it didnt do as well as i thought it did. I stopped seeing it at Nordstrom and Macys last yr. And I see bottles of it at Marshalls all the time for 20 and 15 bucks. I rather enjoyed it. It didnt last very long in the stores did it? Poor Gwen. I guess we’ll be seeing nothing but HL fragrances. I emailed Coty about another L.A.M.B. fragrance and they werent very helpful. : (

    • Robin says:

      Poor Gwen nothing — she’s made a mint off the HL, I’m sure!

  113. jonr951 says:

    True. But I dont think she herself really enjoys all those fruity florals. Im sure L was more her. If all she has is the HL line, it has to get a little boring. Im sure she enjoyed the process for L more than the typical fruity HLs. I guess its all about the $$$. : )

    I loved this when it first came out and couldn’t wait to buy it. Admittedly that was 4 years ago but I’m sure it stopped smelling the same shortly after so I don’t wear it much! Really want her to do another one.

    I bought this when it first came out as I was looking for something that was fresh for a Spring/Summer fragrance. For some reason, any male that has come close to me wearing this perfume has asked me to write down the name of it and where to buy it so they can purchase it for their girlfriend or wife. I’m not entirely sure why this is, as this scent isn’t your typical ‘opposite sex’ pleaser; to my nose I pick up mostly freesia, hyacinth, orange blossom, and a VERY VERY clean and bright white musk. To me, it is the least remarkable of every fragrance I own, but when I wear it, I get a ridiculous amount of compliments. I’m not sure really if I like this scent overly, but it is something light and fresh to wear to work once the weather gets warmer.
