MA Sillage de la Reine, Francis Kurkdjian

MA Sillage de la Reine, Francis Kurkdjian. While doing research on Jean-Louis Fargeon, parfumeur to Marie-Antoinette, biographer Elisabeth de Fevreau unearthed notes on the queen’s personal perfume. Originally named ” Le Trianon,” the perfume once used by the queen combines various scents including rose, iris, jasmine, orange blossom and sandalwood. The scent which was renamed “M.A. Sillage de la Reine” was developed by French perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, who combined the ingredients after detailed research. He adhered strictly to the 18th-Century custom of combining “100% natural primary materials” and the scent is “intensely floral”. It should be no surprise to anyone that since its launch in 2006, MA Sillage de la Reine is no longer available from Versailles.
