L'OR DE LOUIS
Eau de parfum, 100ml
The Orangery, Versailles
More than a thousand Mediterranean trees are housed in the cathedral-like galleries of the Orangery.
Built by the King’s architect to impress courtiers, the tree-lined space became a theatrical setting to entertain the Court. Inside, the gardeners would build bonfires to keep the trees warm so when the Sun King visited, the heady scent of firewood blended with his beloved orange blossoms would emit a generous golden aura.
COMPOSITION: Orange blossom absolute, pomegranate, cedar wood, honey, jasmine absolute, Florentine orris, musk accord, firewood smoke accord, cade wood and a ‘Oiselet de Chypre’ accord.
