PARIS — Parfums Lolita Lempicka is introducing its first spicy floral women’s scent, Si Lolita, starting this summer.
Its predecessors Lolita Lempicka, from 1997, and L, from 2006, are orientals, explained Valérie Lecoanet, manager of Parfums Lolita Lempicka, which is part of Pacific Creation Parfum Beauté.
The project is meant to have an air of Parisian bohemian chic along with little girl whimsy — capturing the child inhabiting every grown woman, according to company executives.
Si Lolita’s bottle design, by Lempicka herself, takes a cue from a four-leaf clover whose leaves morph into heart shapes.
A swatch of Lolita Lempicka fabric is tied around the bottle’s neck. The outer packaging’s design, by watercolorist Michel Charier, echoes the theme.
Fragrance Resources perfumers Christine Nagel and Benoist Lapouza concocted Si Lolita’s juice. In the head are notes of pink peppercorn, bergamot and mandarin. Heart notes include wallflower, sweet pea and heliotrope, while the base comprises elemi, amber, patchouli and tonka bean notes.
Christian Moser shot the print advertising campaign featuring model and actress Charlotte Le Bon. It comes in single and double pages.
“She incarnates the spirit of the young Parisian,” said Catherine Dauphin, president of Pacific Creation Parfum Beauté.
Si Lolita’s launch will take place in France in mid-August and in September in other markets, save for the U.S., which is to start selling Si Lolita in 2010.
Although Lolita Lempicka executives would not divulge projections, industry sources estimate the new fragrance will generate $28 million in wholesale revenues during its first year worldwide.
In France, an 80-ml. eau de parfum spray will cost 84 euros, or $120 at current exchange; a 50-ml. edp spray, 65.40 euros, or $93.50, and a 30-ml. edp spray, 49 euros, or $70.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
