Even though there are like a hundred of these Crazylibellule and The Poppies solid fragrance perfumes on the market, I am determined to have them all. They’re cheap, portable, and most importantly, they smell much more expensive than what they are. My recent addition to my solid perfume collection has been Aux Anges (On Cloud Nine) from the Les Divines Alcôves collection. All you need to know about it is that it smells like jasmine, no matter what else it claims to have in it (bergamot, ylang-ylang, tangerine, jasmine and more jasmine). I love the scent of jasmine and I give this a thumbs up. It isn’t fussy, it’s intimate and it is sooo feminine. Les Divines Alcôves is a collection that represent love and meetings. It is a very soft, polished, and romantic scent. It reminds me of late 50’s bridal magazines because it is so polished and it is so keen on selling romance. It’s trying to sell devotion and monogamy to a generation that is starting to care less. It’s a flirty white floral bouquet housed in a butter yellow poppy printed cardboard tube.
Update: It’s been discontinued.
