Crazylibellule and The Poppies has introduced a new series, Tous les matins du monde. The first fragrance is June 26th, Ile d'Yeu:
26 June, île d’Yeu: The house at the edge of the Firs. To the background of Bach's English Suites the ocean calls, gently pulled by a thread of light. Nothing disturbs the silence, except the olfactive recklessness of fruit and leaves combined. Surprised, bewildered and moved to be in contact with the skin.
The fruity hesperidic fragrance includes notes of orange, peach, plum, rose, jasmine, lily of the valley, orange blossom, cardamom, black pepper, precious wood, vanilla and musk.
Crazylibellule and The Poppies June 26th, Ile d'Yeu is available in 200 ml Cologne; 48€. (via crazylibellule )
I hope this comes around sometime. One of the only truly sweet fragrances I like is their l'Olfactive 129, which I have never gotten a bottle of. The drydown has always really pleased me on that one, and it puts a smile on my face. One of the first things I tried after coming to this blog.
I love that on their list of notes “vanille gourmand” is translated as “greedy vanilla”. I never really thought of gourmand that way but it puts a whole new spin on it.
“Greedy” is the standard translation if you use an online translator…I think it's how Montale ended up with Chocolate Greedy as a name.
