Perfume memories: LouLou by Cacharel

I used LouLou by Cacharel in 80's and I've wanted to repurchase it for several years now. This scent is not available in Finland anymore, but when I saw it in Parfumie Douglas in Germany, I just had to get it! I still love this scent so much, but unfortunately the bottle is quite far from stylish ;)

Tuli sitten hankittua ehta kasarituoksu Saksasta ;) Cacharelin LouLou oli suosikkini 80-luvun lopulla, Suomesta tätä ei taida enää saada. Olen aivan hulluna tähän tuoksuun, jota en osaa edes kuvailla mitenkään... Alla kuitenkin tuoksun tarkemmat kuvaukset englanniksi. Pullo on valitettavasti vähemmän elegantti. Muistatko sinä tämä tuoksun?


 
"One of the top selling perfumes of the 1980es, one of those bold, powerful, distinguishing and timeless fragrances. Loulou is a controversial perfume that people either like, or dislike, the one that provoke different emotions and indifference for sure is not one of them."

"The perfume is built around the beautiful and sensual scent of Tiare flower, the Tahitian symbol of welcoming and generous offer. The top notes are composed of violet, plum black currant, marigold and anis; the heart of sweet Tiare flower is accentuated with the notes of tuberose, ylang-ylang and orange blossom; all that is followed by powdery trace of orris and Tonka bean, and sensual mix of vanilla and balsam.
This sensual, wild and mysterious perfume is captured in an opaque blue and red flacon of a simple octagonal straight-lines shape that narrows towards the top." from Fragrantica.

Top notes: Jasmine, mimosa, orange, tiare lily
Middle notes: Iris
Base notes:  Sandalwood, vanilla, incence. from Basenotes.

My other 80's favorites was Poison, I bought it again a few years ago too :) Do you remeber LouLou? Did you like it?

  2. Mulla ei ole tuoksusta mitään mielikuvaa, mutta muistan tuon pullon elävästi jostain, en tiedä tosin mistä, sillä äidilläni ei tuota kyllä ollut.. Pullon muotoilussa on selkeää 80-luvun futurismia ja "sci-fiä". Jollain tapaa jopa tykkään siitä :)

  3. Tän testeripullo oli Anaïs Anaïsin minipullon ohella mun ensimmäinen hajuvesi lapsena! Niin imelä, että myi loppujen lopuksi aika kehnosti. Lapsena tykkäsin, enää en pysty kun on liian vahva tuoksu.

  6. Laura: Jep ;)

    The beautiful blog: :)

    Sonia: Voi saadakin, käyn vain laivalla niin harvoin. Tosin Viikarilla pitää kyllä käydä, kun tuli luvattua ;)

    HeidiB: :D Muoto on ihan nätti mutta tuo väriyhdistelmä ei ihan nappaa... ja tämä 30ml on paljon nätimpi kuin isommat koot!

  10. ooh that brought back memories!I liked its spin off Lou Lou Blue, which had a warmer vanilla smell. For a while i collected perfume bottles, but lost interest. I couldnt bare to part with them though, so stored them in a box and popped them in the loft. This year my dad decided to relag the loft and out came that box and there was the lovely bottle - it was a see through blue instead of opaque.
