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.
On August 15, 1774, King Louis XVI makes a wonderful gift to his wife Marie-Antoinette : 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.
In the language of flower, the violet represents shyness, modesty and sophistication and is also a symbol for secret love. It was the favorite flower of the Empress Eugénie de Montijo (1826 – 1920) wife of Napoleon III. Violette Impériale presents a generous and rich violet that recalls with elegance the splendor of the Second Empire.
