Crazylibellule & the Poppies Jeanne Voyage Perfume Stick

From cult favorite Crazylibellule and the Poppies, the Jeanne Voyage solid perfume stick is scented with notes of iris of Florence, java nutmeg, and Sicilian bergamot. A fragrance created to pay tribute to Jeanne Lanvin, famous French dressmaker who founded the oldest Parisian “Haute Couture” fashion house. Always ahead of her time, she created an empire around her three passions: fashion, fragrance, decoration. Her trips around the world were her source of inspiration.

I Dream of France was reviewed by the blog Paint Your Town Red! Paint Your Town Red is dedicated to the promotion of locally owned fashion boutiques and specialty shops, focusing on Southern California (Orange, San Diego, and Riverside counties).  The blog’s editor came to visit us one afternoon and took photos of our shop and product dispays.
