We'll be honest; we initially picked up L de Lolita Lempicka Parfum ($40-89) at the perfume counter for the beautiful aquamarine glass bottle draped with gold netting, gemstones, and a cut-glass stopper. We bought it because of the fragrance. Intoxicatingly floral and spicy with notes of immortal flower, musk, cinnamon, and bitter orange, it's free spirited and mysterious. As with most Oriental perfumes, it is best applied very sparingly so that, like the mermaid it's inspired by, all passersby get is elusive whiffs of something magical and untamed.
