Post New perfume ???
I have just seen the last few minutes of a documentary - shown here in Britain - on the BBC. (Always frustrating to only see the end of something!!!)

In the programme they talked about a new perfume which is connected in some way with Marie Antoinette does anyone know anymore about this ?
I saw the manufacture of the new bottles for the perfume .....but little else.

I know that the castle of Versailles reconstitute a perfume of the time of Marie-Antoinette, according to the researchs of Elisabeth de Feydeau about the notes of the Marie-Antoinette's perfumer (Jean-Louis Fargeon).. It will be put on sale very soon.

They speak about it on the Versailles's site : http://www.chateauversailles.fr/fr/1_So ... _Reine.php

Yes, it was mentioned on Axel's site as well.

However... 350 euros, it's quite expensive, isn't it ? :shock:

I think it won't be exactly her perfume, Chou-Charles, alas... It won't be exactly this formula, you see ? I'm afraid it will be adapted to our today tastes...

I agree, it's only one a reconstitution make starting from documents.

And I also believe that it's not exactly the perfume of Marie-Antoinette, but only one a standard perfume of this time, which surely Marie-Antoinette would liked :wink:

I received a mail of Versailles saying that the perfume will have a large delay of manufacture because they changed supplier, which met much problem to the manufacture.
The perfume should be finished in December. :wink:

Will the perfume, once available, be available at perfumeries everywhere? I live in Australia and really hope I will have the chance to purchase it too!

If this is the same perfume as in this article I think it will only be sold at Versailles, at least for now.

Indeed Melly this parfum will be only sold in Versailles and in limited edition (1000 I believe): it's thus necessary to hold it before by mail... :wink:
