Bouque du Trianon, Historiae (Bertrand Duchaufour)

Bouque du Trianon, Historiae (Bertrand Duchaufour).
On August 15, 1774, King Louis XVI makes a wonderful gift to his wife Marie-Antoinette : « You love flowers, I have a bunch to offer you : the Petit Trianon. » At Trianon, Marie-Antoinette created a haven of intimacy that allowed her to escape the etiquette. She indulged her taste for country-style patterns and pastel colors.
With its sensual floral and wooded scents, it expresses both the eclecticism and sophistication of Marie-Antoinette and subtlety evokes her personality.  Notes include lemon, bergamot, Mandarin, galbanum, Mint, freesia, blackcurrant bush leaf, tuberose absolute, ylang ylang, beeswax absolute, rose, honeysuckle, vetiver, patchouli, amber, musk, sandalwood, cedarwood.
