    Such a purdy bottle, as usual. Looks Christmas-y, like an ornament. Actually, perfume bottle ornaments would be kinda cool.

      Brilliant idea on Perfume Bottle Ornaments! Harajuku Lovers had a “santa” bottle (10ml) a few years back that you could hang on the tree. Cute!

  2. CM says:

    I love this bottle! Is it same formulation as Eau de Minuet in years past? Sounds like it is….

    • Robin says:

      I’m so sorry…honestly can’t remember if they tweak the juice every year or not. A comment on the 2012 version says they’re all the same, so possibly this ought to be listed as a collector bottle & not a new fragrance.

    • Absolute Scentualist says:

      If it’s helpful, there was a year (I don’t recall which) where LL released a Lolita Lempicka Minuit Noir Couture or something like it. I’d have to check my bottle for the exact name and don’t have it handy at the moment. Anyway, both the bottle and packaging are black with gold accents and the perfume itself is very different from both the original LL and the two other LL Midnight versions I own. The anis and myrrh are much stronger up top with an almost dry character, and then as it dries down, the iris and vanilla join in and make it sweeter and give it a leathery feel. It’s gorgeous and while it costs a bit more than I was used to spending on LE LL perfumes, it’s definitely worth tracking down if you like orientals or think the original LL needed a darker touch.

          Oh that’s the one! The names are so confusing–when I did a search for just that name alone I got three or four different results. ;) You almost need a detailed chart for each LE release, bottle color, perfume description (since the notes are almost always the same) and precise name variation of each one. lol

    The Lempicka bottles are so much fun to look at and hold. I love many of the fragrances on paper, but something (the licorice?) goes in an unusual direction on my skin.

    After reading the NST review for Elle l’Aime (no licorice!), I tried it a few days ago. I really like wearing it. Thanks for helping me find a new summery scent. :)

    This bottle is really beautiful. I have only smelled the original once or twice, and haven’t really cared for it. I should try it again. Looking forward to trying this.

    It’s probably good for my wallet that they put licorice in many of their pretty bottles. I hate black licorice/anise/fennel, so I have been able to resist buying a bottle just for its external beauty :-)

    Most of the newer ones without licorice have ugly bottles IMO … I’m looking at you L L’Aime, Elle L’Aime, and Elle L’Aime.

    • kindcrow says:

      meant to say “and Elle L’Aime Eau a la Folie.”
