Louis XIV had a great sensitivity for smells. His personal perfumer, Martial, created a perfume for him for each day of the week. According to the French writer Saint-Simon, the King overused musky perfumes so much so that by the end of his reign, he could not bear any, except for the odor of the orange flower.The monarch’s original taste foretold the trend of natural fresh scents which was to be very much en vogue in the XVIIIth century. The orange tree flower was the favorite fragrance of King Louis XIV, known as the “Sun King” (1638-1715). With hints of fresh arrangement punctuated by aromatic notes backed by noble woods, Orangerie du Roy makes you rediscover the orange blossom.
