Arty Fragrance, a niche brand founded by perfume historian Elizabeth de Feydeau, is preparing to launch their debut fine fragrance called Rêve de la Reine...
The new eau de parfum has a link with the nearly eponymous candle from the house, Le Rêve de la Reine. They were so far specializing in scented candles with historical back stories.
The narrative here is about a maternal and serene queen Marie-Antoinette living at Trianon. The fragrance itself is inspired by a "mille-fleurs" bouquet, a genre which is characteristic of the 18th century. Rose is said to predominates with woodsy notes evoking the alley ways of the English Garden and a light veil of musk conjuring up the fashionable "robe en gaulle" from the time, with its frothy chiffon folds held together by a simple ribbon.
In the past, Elizabeth de Feydeau worked on recreating a perfume that Marie-Antoinette might have worn together with perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, M.A. Sillage de la Reine.
