Post Perfumery and Fragrance
I checked the forum and I didn;t see any topic on the subject of perfumery and the favorite scents of Marie Antoinette. I am doing research on this subject and would greatly appreciate any information on this. According to my research, her favorite fragrance is violet.

Welcome Magdalene65!

Please take a look through this thread about the book "A Scented Palace" by Elisabeth de Feydeau. It is about Marie Antoinette's perfumer, Jean-Louis Fargeon.

“Love is the emblem of eternity: it confounds all notion of time: effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.”
- Germaine de Staël
