Loud but effective bulletL'amour Petal is a basic bullet style vibrator. It's battery operated but very powerful. It is very similar to L'amour bullet except it is shaped like a leaf petal rather than a standard bullet. It has strong vibrations that hit the spot nicely. The vibes are rather buzzy, and it's quite the noisy toy. It's nice for solo or couple play.
Easy to use
It can be used for either solo or couple play. The vibrations feel best on my clit, but can be used on any erogonous zone ie back, neck, vagina, feet, etc. My husband also liked it on his balls.
I did not use this anally. Since it has a wire attached it is probably safe to do so if desired.
The L'Amour Petal is made out of PU coated plastic. That rates a 7 out of 10 on the safety scale. It is phthalate free. It can be washed with soap and water or a toy cleaner. Either a water based or silicone based lube is fine for this product.
The box states to not immerse in water. I wouldn't use it in the shower either. It would be easy for water to get into the battery compartment.
The bullet is in the shape of a leaf petal. At least judging from the name, that's what California Exotics has in mind. It sort of reminds me of a cadbury egg except it's a bit more pointy at one end. It's about 3 inches long and 2 inches at it's widest width. It curves down to a point at the bottom. Being plastic, it is hard and rigid. It doesn't have any give at all. The shape is different on the front and back. The front is the shape of a cadbury egg. From the back it looks like the egg was cut in half lenghwise. Then a smaller cadbury egg was put in the center. So the sides of the back are flat and the center has a smaller rounded part jutting out from it. There is a seam running around the edges of the back.
They are attached by a 2 feet silver wire. The wire is permanently attached. This is not a wireless system. The cord is long enough to play without trouble. You can not however have someone control it from across the room.
Overall I like this design. The purple/pink is pretty without getting too cutsey. The petal is a bit more unique than the standard cylinder-shaped bullets. It's not discreet looking. Anyone who has seen sex toys will know what it is.
The vibrations are strong but more buzzy than rumbly. I usually prefer deep and rumbly, but I have to say I enjoyed this. It had plenty of power for me. I liked it best between levels 3-5. I didn't even miss the pulsating options.
Most of the vibrations are felt at the bottom of the petal.
The biggest drawback is that this is loud. It gets louder and louder at the higher intensities. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to use it at all when my kids were in the house. We found that as long as we were playing music in the room and kept it under covers, it could not be heard above the music. Without the music, it can be heard through closed doors. It wouldn't be a good choice for a dorm setting.
It is battery operated and requires 4 AAA batteries (not included.)
L'amour Petal is a nice powerful vibe at an affordable price if you don't mind the noise.
