Crazy Libellule and the Poppies Les Garconnes: new fragrances

Crazylibellule and The Poppies, the company that brought out those cute solid perfumes in carton cases like lipstick is launching a new set of solid perfumes this July, also encased in similar packaging. The new line is an homage to fabulous ladies of the Roaring 20s, thus nicknamed Les Garçonnes (after the novel La Garçonne which ignited the "flapper" vogue). Although I would not venture to call them "proper perfume", they do present a fun and cute way of carrying around a scented little something in your bag without the risk of spilling or staining and their Encens Mystic was even worthy of being featured in my Incense Series, so it's got some pulling potential to be sure! And at $16.00 for 5gr they're very inexpensive.
"The freedom of the 1920's is the inspiration behind the universe of the brand’s new collection "Les Garçonnes". A modern ode to femininity and audacity and a few grammes of sensuality, these seven creations pay homage to the independent, seductive and positive women who changed their era: Joséphine, Gabrielle, Louise, Tamara, Jeanne, Rose and Pompon. Famous or beautiful strangers? Can you guess who they are?" (via press release)

The new Les Garconnes line from Crazy Libellule and the Poppies will include:

*Chère Louise ~ notes of hyacinth, rose, pepper, iris, saffron, patchouli and gaiac wood.

*Hommage à Gabrielle ~ notes of jasmine, peony, ozonic flower, cedar, incense, leather, vanilla and elemi.

*Pompon Gardenia ~ notes of lime, watermelon, lily of the valley, gardenia, amber, tobacco and heliotrope.

*Rose à Saïgon ~ notes of mango, rose, jasmine, gaiac wood, ylang ylang, passion fruit, vetiver and patchouli.

*Jeanne Voyage ~ notes of bergamot, mandarin, iris, musk, violet leaves, nutmeg, heliotrope, amber and rose.

*Joséphine Jonquille ~ notes of lemon, ginger, cardamom, tiare, jonquil, jasmine, patchouli and chocolate.

*Tamara Charleston ~ notes of peach, mandarin, fresh cut hay, absinthe, jasmine, lisylang (molecule by Robertet), gardenia and amber.

Check out the brand on the official Crazy Libelllule and the Poppies site. Available at Beautyhabit and B-glowing in the US.

  2. Yup, they're cute. And for something so inexpensive I can forgive a little mishappening or two.
