Versailles, 15th of August 1774
Art and History's perfume, 'Trianon's bouquet', is a perfume whose fragrances capture the very essence of Queen Marie Antoinette's refinement, which expressed itself in several domains in the Arts, Beauty and Fashion, and most notably in her taste for light and floral perfumes.
A Little History: Trianon's Bouquet is a concoction derived from a harmonious mix of tuberose and spirit of the first artistic perfumes which appeared at the end of the 18th Century and for which Marie-Antoinette was a great ambassador. Composed from sensual floral notes, the perfume breathes the Queen's refinement and personality on the skin itself with its woody scent.
This perfume could not have existed without having been tinted the Queen's favourite colour, 'Nattier blue', or 'Trianon blue', that blue in which she liked to plunge herself, the colour of her 'Petit Trianon' boudoir and the midday cabinet at the Château of Versailles, given to her by Louis XVI upon the birth of the dauphin.
