Afrobella’s 12 Days of Giveaways – Marc Jacobs Lola!

Let’s pick things up where we left off, shall we?

2010 has been quite a year. Through the ups and downs, you’ve stuck by me and I am thankful for every one of you! To celebrate 4 years of Afrobella, my site being back up and running, happiness and health – I’m giving you 12 Days of Giveaways!

On the 4th day of giveaways, Afrobella gave to me – 4 bottles of Marc Jacobs Lola Velvet!

Heady and sensual and just a little dark and brooding. That begins to describe my initial impression of Marc Jacobs Lola. It’s a dangerous floral, with notes of smooth vanilla, tonka bean and creamy musk. I kept fishing for a perfect way to describe the decadent scent, but my friend KarlaSugar said it best – it’s a very purple fragrance. And that explains everything, because purple has ALWAYS been my favorite color. I love how Lola makes me feel. When I spray this scent on my body, I feel womanly. Sexy. Mysterious. Well done, Mr. Jacobs, well done!

For the 4th of my 12 giveaways, 4 lucky readers will win a Limited Edition “Velvet” bottle of Marc Jacobs Lola. What a gorgeous way to dress up your dresser for the new year!

This giveaway is open to anyone in the USA!

How do you enter?

Leave a comment on this post and let me know – what outfit would you wear, with a fragrance like Marc Jacobs Lola?

I’ll close comments in 24 hours.

Good luck!!

  1. Something sleek and sophisticated from Victoria Beckham’s collection.

  2. I have a black jumpsuit with a plunging neckline and bright red suede Kathryn Amberleigh pumps, my naki muli bangles and my signature Afro pick earrings and hair as big as I can get it.

  3. Absolutely nothing!!! It sounds too sexy to be confined to clothes…LOL

  4. The classic ‘Little Black Dress’

  5. Chrissy Jones says:

    I would wear my black jumpsuit that has studs and sequins across the waste and my 4 inch wedge heels.

  6. The bottle reminds me of my favorite knit purple dress from last winter. I’d wear that.

  7. Lola!!! I always pass it by in the store, but can never buy it (broke college girl lol). I would rock the Lola scent with a baaaaaaaaad wrap dress (a deep blue or funky purple), a chunky necklace and earrings. I’d top it off with silver platform heels and i’d twist my fro into some cute lil twists!

  8. Nothing! It seems perfect for a round of morning, afternoon or evening delight…lbvs.

  9. I see a red, one shoulder side rouched dress with big curly hair, red lips and killer black sequined stilletos….woo hoo, count me in

  10. a sexy little black dress, signature necklace, big curly hair, and a swarovski chic ring. yes ma’am!

  11. I will wear my black leggings, grey/multitcolored oversized sweater vest and white long sleeve shirt with my black knee hi boots.

  12. Wow. I am a BUMhemian so I don’t know if I have anything especially interesting but I just inherited a vintage sequined sweater. It looks great on my rotundas frame. A wonderful pair of washed jeans and black knee high boots. Gold hoop earrings, my gold “she-ra” bracelet and a soft, low side ponytail (I know you didn’t ask for hair but you know). LOL

  13. latoya hash says:

    I would wear a nice pair of jeans with boots and a dressy cardigan!

  14. A short silver silk number I saw on modcloth sounds like it would go perfect with this scent. And of course some sky high pumps.

  15. I’d wear it with a black sweater dress and ridding boots!

  16. latoya hash says:

    I’d wear Lola with any and everything. Especially with something with sequins!!

  17. Kiwistardust says:

    I’ve had the pleasure of smelling this in the store! I think I’d wear grey wide-leg trouser-slacks with a ruffled pastel-colored blouse, and royal purple pumps. That’s classy and sexy to me :)

  18. I’d wear it with a gold sequined two piece sweater knit with a cowl collar that I have, and love wearing to special occasions during the holidays.

  19. I’m going to go with my tried and tested LBD and I will have to shop for some killer pumps to match this sexy fragrance!

  20. I have a cream sweater and a gold jacquard skirt that are dying to be accompanied by this scent.

  21. Classic LBD & killer shoes.

  22. I would wear my skinny jeans with my tiger striped peep toe pumps and my favorite off the shoulder sweater!!! It is to die for fragrance. Heart it!!

  23. My purple suede heels. That’s it.

  24. This sounds like a little black dress fragrance! I have the perfect dress and these b/w/g leopard print pumps that go perfectly! :)

  25. I would wear a fitted blazer that has matching pants with a sheer blouse underneath with lace underthings. I would also put on sky high heels with a hat and big hair. I would take all the attention in the room with my bold wardrobe and new fragrance, and I’d want you to see every inch of me.

  26. amberchella says:

    Afrobella, I’d wear my new favorite wrap blouse with a lovely huge bow & what I like to call a clown collar. Ooh, and leather pants and boots. Or maybe just a nightie? Happy Holidays!

  27. The Perfect Outfit I’d Rock With Marc’s ‘Lola’ Fragrance Would Be My Black High Waist Pencil Skirt, Aqua Sequin Tank That I Bought This Summer, Topped With A Simple Black Blazer & Some Cute Suede Booties! I’m A Simple Chick & I Like Rocking Just A Little Something That Stands Out (The Tank & Accessories) Making My Outfit Very Chic!

  28. a little black dress with some outrageous pumps, to spice it up..

  29. I’m planning a “no-special-day” surprise romantic evening for my hubby, and I think Lola yearns to be worn with sensual loungewear. Not the frilly, fizzy, hot young thing stuff, but the sophisticated, grown up, in full control of making you holler look. My perfectly drapey, grey silk harem shorts and purple silk top with strategic sheer panels and obi self belt should be just the thing with the scent on my inner elbows, collarbone and nape of my neck.

  30. I’d wear a cute flirty sleeveless purple jumper with some 5′ inch strap up stilleto heels in either black or a colorful opage of colors. A cute necklace to compliment the shoes and a cute clutch purse. Hair: up in a curly do ofcourse and some cute earrings.

  31. A little black dress, you can never go wrong with that, the easier to take off the better, lol…

  32. Just based off of the description of the scent this calls for the ultimate suede pump (basic leather just wouldn’t do), with a basic yet fabulous black dress, purple tights (mainly for a splash of color), and some simple jewelry (well maybe a little bauble ring to feel regal).

  33. Lola sounds like just what I need. Purple is fastly becoming one of my favorite colors. I would wear Marc Jacobs Lola with something off the shoulder and thigh high.

  34. Tiffiny Fisher says:

    I’d wear something spicy…with big, wild curly hair.

  35. *I hope I win*
    *I hope I win*
    I have a BEAUTIFUL Tracy Reese black and white floral print sheath dress I would wear it with and a pair or yellow pumps.

  36. Vivrant Thang says:

    I knew the giveaways would get better and better! Thank you the opportunity! *crosses fingers, toes, and eyes*

    Some real fashionistas on here…although my favorite response is nothing at all ;-)

    I’ve had my eye on this fragrance for a while. My signature is Calvin Klein’s Euphoria. People stop me to tell me how nice I smell when I wear it. I’m in need of a re-up so that’s what Santa is bringing me this year.

    Last year, when I was buying myself a new fragrance, it was between Lola, Daisy and Vera Wang’s Rock Princess. Vera won but Lola or Daisy was next on my list.

    I would pair Lola with something else I’ve long lusted over, the Monif C long convertible dress in Pumpkin Spice, Red, or Purple (you know what I’m talking bout Bella!) I pray that I look half as good in it as Jill Scott did in that Essence spread. At least I will smell as good as she looked!

  37. Lashana Smith says:

    I have the absolute perfect outfit for this fragrance…MY HUSBAND! He will be all over me with this one lol. Afterall, “…whatever Lola wants, Lola gets…” ;)

  38. Yes, Lola oozes purple. And as purple unites the wisdom of blue with the love of red, I’d wear Lola with a navy silk charmeuse dress and a sensational red feather in my hair.

  39. I’d wear Lola with a Lola-esque outfit, of course… Young and trendy, but very sexy. Probably a knee length banded dress (in black) that hugs all of my curves!!!

  40. I would wear it with a lilac peasant top with some skinny jeans and pretty pair of heels or booties. Basically something like a outfit I found on Arden B

  41. Definitely a LBD!

  42. raboyd7989 says:

    Im gonna go with the classic “LBD” with some killer heels!

  43. I would wear one of my many many sweater dresses.

  44. I would wear a red cocktail dress.

  45. I’d probably break out one of my convertible dresses, wear it one shouldered, with some Jessica Simpson pumps, my biggest pair of Fulani earrings, and an arm full of colorful bangles, and my TWA fluffed out.

  46. I’d pair Lola Velvet with my new favorite dress. It’s a very soft,purple cashmere wrap. A “Purple” Fragrance calls for a purple dress.

  47. I just bought some black overtheknee velvet boots last week. I would pair those with some tights and a long cardigan that I bought on sale at Marshall’s that has gold flower like sequins on the shoulders. Perfects for a nice dinner with the hubs!

  48. I would pair that fragrance with any and everything!

  49. My LGD (Little Grey Dress) with some red heels would go perfectly with a spritz of Lola!

  50. A little black dress with my highest heels

  51. I have a red dress that I will probably wear to Christmas Mass that would go great with this!! Thanks for the chance!!

  52. A simple LBD with some bangin’ accessories.

  53. I little black dress. Simple and classic. With the bottle tops as earrings.

  54. I have a fabulous, colorful, low cut top with purple accents that I always wear when I want attention because it is gorgeous with a pencil skirt and killer heels. I also got a pair of dramatic earrings that I got for Christmas that will look fantastic with it!

    Thanks for the contest!!!

  55. ChrsLvsBks says:

    With that scent, I’d wear my black v-neck silky soft dress with patterned tights and dark purple suede shoes. Purple is so sexy to me.

  56. I will wear a short, sexy dress that hugs my figure, something tight but still classy, killer shoes and some shimmery/glimmer make up. Gold would probably be the color theme, for my dress or make or my accessories. I will also pull up my hair in a sexy bun. Basically, a dress that makes me feel beautiful, feminine and sexy!

  57. A red velvet bow and clear stilettos. That is it, that is all :-)

  58. I will wear a black strapless leather dress that would dress up with sparkly earrings and some great heels!

  59. Definitely a LBD with peep toes

  60. I would wear a navy blue faux wrap dress, with long sleeves a pencil skirt silhouette.
    I’m not a girl that wears heels all the time, but killer flats will work just as well!
    And to finish it off, a bold necklace and a soft neutral smoky eye to give a bit of mystery.
    Thank You!

  61. Something fun, colorful, and flirty!

  62. Shucks! I’m not in USA :( would love to have one – lovely bottle and colour.

  63. irresistible nikki says:

    I would wear my favorite color which is red. A red dress with res earrings and a black bute belt along with some black pumps. Along with my favorite Avon makeup

  64. I’d wear a dark purple dress (LBD, but purple), cute black heels, and gold jewelry (nothin tacky of course lOl).

  65. I would wear a woman’s tuxedo. I would wear a purple corset top under the tuxedo jacket and some purple stilettos for that POP of purple! I like outfits that are different but can still be sexy and feminine.

  66. I would wear a cream and black dress (cream top, with black skirt), that has roses around the collarbone done in the cream color, in silk. I think it would be very feminine, but combined with some dark black liner, studded black heels and my newly died black hair, could also have an edge. A perfect compliment to Marc Jacobs Lola. Thanks for the great giveaway,

  67. I would wear a gold cocktail dress, emerald green pump with fabulous but understated accessories.

  68. YaHighness says:

    I would wear a nice fitted cream dress with a low v-cut in the front and long-sleeved. I would wear 5 inch black and nude pumps and gold accessories. Owwwwwwwww! Sexy and ready to paint the city red!

  69. A little black dress and red heels with a bow.

  70. What outfit would I wear….hmmmmm?I would wear a regal 1950’s outfit. I envision myself in a finger wave hair sytle, a burlesque-ish top with a pencil skirt and cute pump bow heels. The perfume screams extravagant ! “Make a BOLD statement !” And, my outfit would do the same.

  71. I’d wear a relaxed look, nice sweater and pants, and let the fragrance speak for itself.

  72. Allison West says:

    I would wear this with a simple white tee, boyfriend Levi’s jeans, Chuck Taylor’s, and my faux leather moto jacket! Thanks!

  73. I would wear a nice over sized sweater,leggings and a pair of pumps.

  74. I’d wear a high waisted floral skirt( with a little poofiness), v-neck gray elbow sleeve top, a huge curly afro, black tights, comfy suede black ankle boots & a smile!=]


    Hi, I would wear the MJ Lola with a sexy black dress and a very hi heel. I am 5″11 and 1/2 and love wearing short sexy dresses with very high heels. Makes the guys look up to you.

    I would spray MJ Lola all over playing close attention to behind my ears and neck area as my boyfriend loves that area!

  76. I think this fragrance would go perfectly with a little black dress:)

  77. Warm bath, candlelight, soft music, glass wine, lots of bubbles…done…step out oil applied skin glistens air dry. Laid across my bed a midnight purple satin gown full length ruffle neckline plunging just beneath my breast. As I turn I admire the back dangerously plunging towards the curve of my back I smile as Lola begins to caress the back of my ears, anoints my décolleté then gently kisses the curve of my back. In the mirror I spin back around with hand on hip and say I’m Ready!

  78. I would wear a red wide leg pants set, gold 4 1/2 inch heels, lace purple cami underneath, gold accessories, hair pulled back tight in a bun, red lipstick and lots of lashes!

  79. Sheree Sanders says:

    I would have on a purple and red silk shirt, with purple and red flowery silk skirt, and some hot pumps!

  80. Nothing. This scent is totally clothing optional.

  81. I would wear a black strapless lace top that has a hint of purple. I would also where a purple pencil skirt with a burgundy flower to accent the natural hair and of course purple lipstick all to compliment the Lola fragrance.

  82. Crystal g. says:

    I’d wear my lace tube top;my sexy leather black blazer ;my satin minni skirt; my thick black stockings ;and my black 6inch booties. accented with my crystal bib necklace and diamond stud earrings.

  83. Tanyale R. says:

    Leopard dress, big gold chain, red pumps and Ruby Woo on my lips.

  84. I have been working on my health and fitness, so I have finally reached my ideal goal. I have some special clothes for this occasion and I just happen to have a gorgeous purple jersey/dress that sits nicely in all the right places, with my cute lacy leggings and black boots.Wash and go natural hair, some gold hoop earrings, chunky gold bracelets and purple & pink makeup and black eyeliner. All this and Marc Jacobs’ Lola, I am sure I will be fly!!!!!

  85. I would wear a casual sexy outfit like a push-up bra underneath a deep V-neck sweater and low-cut dark jeans, which is actually very va-va-voom for me because I usually favor high-cut crew necks and high-waisted jeans.

  86. wow! with a georgeous bottle like that….a purple,red and blue twisted head wrap(the materials twisted together w/ a lil gold shimmer)a gold multi row stack chocker *hommage to my ancestors and the bottle neck) and a Jessica Rabbitesque purple formfitting dress with a tulip flare. (think flower turned upside down). Diamond-like gold accented earrings…and a green and deep royal blue purse,gold hardware…red lining. shoes??? heels… please!!! small rose earrings..w/stem. Roal blue and Green swing jacket. wow….that was off the top of my head! I want the bottle!! lol

  87. I would wear a vintage inspired lace black dress with purple accents throughout the dress. It would be on of those off the shoulder numbers with long sleeves. The dress would hit right above the knee. I’d pair it with a pearl necklace, my RLT pearl bracelet with red accent, and some simple black heels with some gold trim.

  88. Danielle P. says:

    Definitely the smokey oh-so-hot- red dress in my closet that I’ve been dying to wear!

  89. momof3girlz says:

    I would reserve this fragrance for date nights. Thanks! :)

  90. A sexy purple top, jeans that fit perfectly ( not too tight)and a sassy pair of booties come to mind.

  91. I love the purple bottle, purple means royalty. I would wear an outfit fit for a queen like me!

  92. Hmm. I would wear an outfit inspired by the bottle! A dark, divine purple dress, perhaps with dark crimson tights and black heels or booties (four inches high, at least).

  93. …a little black dress, tights w/ lace floral designs, and purple suede peep-toe pumps!

  94. Nothing special, just sweats and a tee… Ill let the fragrance do the talking =)

  95. Oooh…such a sensual sounding fragrance! My first thought is to go with the LBD, but you know what? This would be perfect to de-frumpify a simple concert outfit of jeans, heels, and blouse with big hair and earrings and accessories…just a little bit to add that air of intrigue and mystery to the evening. Look like a rock star, smell like a diva…sounds about right to me.

  96. Natural_BeYouT says:

    I would wear this with some nice denim jeans w/ Kenneth Cole heels and a very lustrous black blouse and a nice waist length leather jacket over it since it’s winter :)

  97. I’m pretty simple, so I would wear this around the house in some PJs. Something that smells this good should be worn anytime, anywhere.

  98. I have this sexy black and royal purple dress that I just purchased. Really, knowing me, I’d even wear it with jeans, a cute top, and boots! :)

  99. A LBD with some cute pumps, huge earrings, some bracelets, maybe one large ring and a simple pendant. I love accessories as you can probably tell.

  100. WEARING SOMETHING COMFORTABLE TO ME….I feel a sexy woman is one who is comfortable with herself first….so no 6 inch heels and ultra short skirts for me….nothing wrong with that, but as MJB says: work what you got! Of course, a great fragrance ALWAYS make you feel sexy and attractive. Thanks!

  101. I would wear something cute and flirty

  102. I love those kinds of perfumes. The kinds that make you feel womanly and dangerous. I think that’s my whole style. I would probably wear a red sequin gown. Low neck line with an open back. No split and very form fitting. I would also wear my hair in a short bob with the smokey eye.

    My goal would be to look like a Russian spa from the James Bond movies

  103. Sharyn Felton says:

    I would wear my black wide leg wool pants with a purple off the shoulder sweater. My hair would be a chunky twist out fro and I have a leather purple flower that I would pin on the side. My make-up would be fierce, probably purple and green eye shadow and then I would close the look with MJ LOLA on my shoulder and pulse points!

  104. It would have to be my black sequined top and black skinny jeans.

  105. I would wear a fitted sequin black skirt that comes to the knee. I would pair it with a nice sheer black blouse that has an off centered tied large bow, w/a silk satin camisole peeking underneath. Add a deep purple satin clutch. Than I pull out the Red Suede Platform pumps…for that extra spice. Of course my makeup would be all about the smokey. The experience would appear to be one thing…but at the end you find out something else. How ya like me now! lol

  106. I would wear something sexy: a LBD, pumps and pearls. This is a sensual scent.

  107. Pamela Whitfield says:

    I have this sexy little red strapless dress, strapy gold heels and my pearls that I would wear Lola with!!!! My husband would LOVE taking in this alluring fragance on me!!!!

  108. I would wear this luxurious scent simply with my Jeans, a comfy tank, black leather jacket and my high heeled pointy-toed boots. The sexy would be the VS underwear underneath the clothes…

  109. LBD

  110. Love the smell of Lola! I would wear a pretty simple black party dress and black tights with black booties and a multicolored sequin bolero on top of the dress.

  111. Nothing ;-)

  112. I would wear my purple satin dress, throw on a pair of stockings with a back seam, and my aldo closed toe pumps…I could model with the bottle…lol

    Happy holidays everyone…

  113. I would wear my sexiest black dress to a restaurant send my husband a note to met me as my alter ego for a “dinner and dessert”.

  114. motherlovin3 says:

    I’d wear my black pencil skirt with black peep toe high heel shoes. I’d wear a plan fitted white tee. I’d weat my best bra without padding for extra seduction.

  115. Mmmm… I was recently admiring this scent at a perfume counter in the mall. With a scent like this one, I would wear a slim fitting, yet oh-so-comfortable, black mini dress, patterned tights, and edgy and fun, studded pumps. Mommy by day… sexy thing by night. A cute purple clutch will add a bit of color :)

  116. D.Michelle says:

    I would definitely wear pumps, pearls and pink.
