Marie-Antoinette is pleasantly and rather perversely paid homage to by niche brand Tokyo Milk Parfumarie Curiosité this fall (how trendier can it get with a name like that?), with their gourmand scent called Let Them Eat Cake.
The infamous and unflattering bon mot attributed to Marie-Antoinette to construct the image of a frivolous queen disconnected from the reality of the cycles of famine and bread shortage in 18th century France is turned into a concoction seemingly blended by a marmiton or kitchen boy of great chef Anthelme Brillat-Savarin.
Forget about history and smell your edible best and democratic with simple notes of sugar cane, coconut milk, vanilla orchid and white musk.
The packaging is cute as can be with its dusty-pink Charlotte cake. The scent is priced at $28 and available at both Anthropologie and Beauty Habit.
