Kirsten Ankersoe, founder of Paris-based Isabelle Ariana Parfums, has been carefully crafting her premium fragrance brand for expansion into more international markets. With seven niche scents — such as last year’s Ombre Coquine — already on shelves in high-end perfumeries, Ankersoe said she expects to launch six more in the next year, adding, “A few years down the line, we’ll enter skin care.”

With prices ranging from 95 euros, or about $131, to 139 euros, or $192, the Isabella Ariana scents come in rectangular glass bottles, each with a label featuring an old logo Ankersoe plucked from her business partner Paul Singh’s ceramics factory.
