Following the example of the Prince de Condé in Chantilly, Marie-Antoinette wanted to have her own little village to enjoy the pleasures of the countryside with her children. Her aspiration for a rural paradise is somewhat a result of Enlightenment. The Queen had her Hameau built in Versailles in 1783, going against the traditions of the old Royal Court.
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.
