Lulu Castagnette will launch Les Petites Folies, a new fragrance for women:
Lulu Castagnette’s new fragrance line, Les Petites Folies takes you into its colorful universe for a true adventure. A floral oriental fragrance with milk, almond and licorice notes.
I will update with launch date, sizes and concentration when I can find them. (via dutyfreemagazine.ca )
Update: Les Petites Folies is actually two fragrances, sharing a common almond note and advertised as "Sixties-inspired and resolutely regressive".

I don’t know anything about the Lulus, and the notes are not really my thing, but those bottles are cuuuuuuute! The VS ones, not so much.
I agree – the notes aren’t really appealing to me, but I covet that bottle!
My sentiments exactly.
Cute as a button.
I’m with you guys on the bottle. They remind me a little of the Nanette Lapore bottles with an atomizer.
That bottle is adorable.
The notes of the Lulu sound like something I like to sell… if I liked it and ever bought it, I promise I’d let you all duke it out for the bottle.
…err… like to SMELL!!
LOL — I knew what you meant!
The Lulu sounds like a Hypnotic Poison/Lolita Lempicka hybrid. I like licorice as a note! I’ll probably like it, but not buy it because it would be redundant in my wardrobe.
Re. the Very Sexy Now, if the VS folks came out with new bottle designs and ditched the completely overdone Very Sexy fume line, I might be more interested, because I love a good tropical floral. Like if this one came in a cute little compact, flowery bottle. It’s, like, easily forgettable unless you’re totally into that line. But then again, I don’t know about their marketing stats.
It does sound like that …. which means I might like it.
The Very Sexy line actually isn’t half bad – I have Very Sexy Dare somehere at home, and it was quite good. Decent prices too. I just hate the name and the packaging. Now if they could only put their juice into a botttle like the Lulu….
Yes!! The VSN bottle really isn’t calling my name.
That Lulu bottle is so cute. I love atomizers.
I hate them. But love to look at them
ugg…………..soooo cute, must not buy little modern Faberge eggs with atomizers.
Milk, almond, and licorice sounds like a trifecta of awesome. I’m all over it.
I don’t know where the line is even carried in the US
I just bought the very sexy now, actually… it is really a fun spring/ summer fragrance. The bottles are pretty awful, and they’re huge so hard to carry around in my purse. This is the first victoria’s secret perfume i have liked enough to buy in a while though. I wish it weren’t a limited edition.
Congrats on your new bottle
