Crazylibellule and the Poppies sounds like the name of a punkish pop girl-band. But the fragrance line, started by former Sephora founder Isabelle Masson-Mandonnaud, is every bit as freewheeling and flirty. The Parisian beauty maven launched the line two years ago with solid, bite-size perfumes called Crazysticks, and while Crazylibellule now comprises cream cleansers and bath oil, a milk mist, L’Olfactive scents, and Bâtons de Parfum, it’s still these roll-on, pop-up perfumes that have us hooked.
The Les Divines Alcoves collection, named for the intimate backrooms in 18th-century France, features fragrances with a heart of bergamot, infused with jasmine (Aux Angels/“On Cloud Nine”), juniper berries (Dans Tes Bras/“In Your Arms”), or lily of the valley (Presque Nue/“In the Nude Almost”). The Shanghaijava collection is more Oriental—scents are medleys of litchi blossoms and ylang—while Poule de Luxe’s seven scents smell like delectably like sorbet and pralines. Says Masson-Mandonnaud: “Wear it everywhere you like to be kissed.”
