Fragrance News: The Latest on Marie-Antoinette's Perfume, Sillage de la Reine


More details on the introduction of the latest batch of M.A. Sillage de la Reine are now available. The perfume will be officially introduced to the public (well, in fact, really only to the happy few) on June 26th at a "grande soirée" (grand reception) in the gardens of the château de Versailles. Prices for the Baccarat and Portieux crystal editions of the fragrance have been announced: the 10 flacons of the Baccarat edition will cost 8000 Euros apiece (an unwittingly humorous reminder of the reason why the French Revolution took place and illustration of the fruits it bears in contemporary France) and the 1000 flacons of the Portieux edition will cost 350 Euros each for a 25 ml quantity.
