My Kind of Crazy: Crazylibellule and the Poppies Les Garçonnes Collection

Crazylibellule and the Poppies had me at hello with these solid perfumes from the Les Garçonnes collection, each one paying tribute to modern, audacious, enthusiastic, seductive and independent women. These so called “crazy sticks” are exactly the kind of crazy I’m looking for in a solid perfume. I’ve been testing Pompom Gardenia and Jeanne Voyage and have to say, they’re like my gal pals now. They go everywhere with me (in my purse) and are there for me in a pinch (or a push).

Here’s the back story on my go-to gals.

Pompom Gardenia: “She wears a most peculiar dress, covered with pompoms. Something quite insolent, and resolutely daring. Her singularity electrifies the bar, our glasses stand forgotten. So elusive.” Clearly she’s the seductress and her fragrance is right on target with lime zest and pulp to further enhance the Gardenia and white flowers warmed with honey-sweetened Virginia tobacco.

Jeanne Voyage:  “Travel the world, getting drunk on art. A passion for exception. The suave odor of unfastened chests crammed with wonders, the smell of somewhere else, a few flowers laid… a sumptuous Italian blue, and sketches torn from a travel diary…” She’s the classy artsy type, and the perfume is exactly that with bergamot, a powdered veil of Iris and java nutmeg.

Crazylibellule and the Poppies has mastered making fragrances that smell fabulous and that are fun. I totally love these “crazy sticks.” You can find them online at Beautyhabit for $16.

Crazylibellule and the Poppies' Lilas Spiritual

I’m starting to explore the world of perfume a bit more than I have before thanks to Autumn at LaCreme Beauty. She’s introducing me to new things I wouldn’t ordinarily try. This product is one of those things.

Crazylibellule and the Poppies' Lilas Spiritual One of the first things you notice about this product in a such as beautiful store such as La Creme is how unusual this product appears to be. When you take a closer look, you find it’s actually a solid perfume. I love lilac and when I first smelled Lilas Spiritual, I was struck by how natural this fragrance smelled. Some lilac scents I have tried have been sickeningly sweet or synthetic. This scent is fresh and earthy, just like a real lilac. This scent features top notes of clove, lilac; heart notes of lilac, lily of the valley; and base notes of lilac and vanilla. This is just one of the 7 scents in the Shanghaïjava scent collection, inspired by the Far East.
