Thank you to Karen for pointing out this great article in today's New York Times Sunday Magazine. The author describes attending a party at Versailles to celebrate the new biography of Marie Antoinette's perfumer, Jean-Louis Fargeon. Each of the party guests received a bottle of Sillage de la Reine, one of Marie Antoinette's perfumes that was recreated by Francis Kurkdjian from a formula found in the French national archives. Why wasn't I invited?
You can see a detailed list of the notes used in Sillage de la Reine in my post from February 25. The NYT article also mentions one other replica of a historical perfume: the Caterina de Medici fragrance made by i Profumi di Firenze.
