Sixteen92 Lolita EdP - Review

When I placed my first Sixteen92 order, I made sure I ordered Lolita, their best selling fragrance. Unfortunately, with the old oil blend, the fragrance was short lived on my skin. However, Sixteen92 has revamped their carrier oil blend to ensure longer lasting power (and with my new order I've definitely experienced that, but that will come at a later time!) but also, the shop has introduced more traditional perfume sprays. I knew that I would pick up Lolita with my next order.

The Lolita EdP has the same notes as the perfume oil - Crisp Apple Skins, Tart Peach Candies, Rose Absolute, Sugared Violet. When using the EdP, I don't notice a difference in the scent blend on my skin. I get a lot of fruity peach and apple, and not much rose at all. The main difference with the EdP that I noticed is the throw - it is much more powerful. The throw weakens after about four hours, but the scent still clings to clothing, which is something you don't get with perfume oils (because you know...oil and clothing don't get along.) The scent lasted on my skin for the entire workday, without the disappointing fade to nothingness of before, or the need to desperately sniff my wrist to detect it. A definite improvement!

I picked up the 15mL size, because of my growing perfume collection, but there are larger sizes available, plus a 2mL mini size. The bottle is glass, with a sticker label. The cap is black plastic, and the atomizer is also black plastic. It would have been nice to have a metal atomizer, but what can you do. The glass bottle appears to be pretty sturdy. It isn't the fanciest bottle on the vanity, but it has a clean look.

Sixteen92 has also provided a secondary EdP blend available for international shipping,  since perfumer's alcohol cannot be shipped internationally.

  1. I'm so happy to hear the scents' the same. I'm definitely picking up at least a sample in my next order.

    1. I think I may get the 2mL for whatever scent I get next!

  2. Oooh, I like the look of this. I like spray perfumes over oils any day!

    1. Definitely check out their offerings, if you're wary, all the scents offered in EdP form have mini atomizers!
