Giveaway: La Cour Parfumee
Preferred fragrances went in and out of popularity over time. The scent of bitter orange blossoms inspired Louis XIII, he loved neroli. Naturally the popularity of any perfume with notes of neroli soared. Unique fragrances were made solely for Louis XIV, and Louis XV’s mistress Madame du Pompadour was a great patron to perfumers.
I find the fragrance to have a very nice twist- timeless yet modern enough to wear and not overpowering. Surely the court would have clamoured for it. Winners will be announced on Wednesday June 30, 2010.
