Nicolas de Barry - L’eau de Louis XV- The Darling
He became king in 1715 at the age of five. The young Loius XV, crowned in Reims and nicknamed the Darling, reinstated from 1722 the government and the court at the Castle of Versailles abandoned since the death of his great grandfather Louis XIV. Married at an early age to Marie Leczinska, a ruined Polish princess, with whom he had 10 children, the king was tempted by the ladies of the court and he kept mistresses including the famous Marquise de Pompadour, his faithful friend of 20 years..
For this royal perfume similar to the soul mate fragrance of the Marquise de Pompadour,
Nicholas de Barry used orange, neroli and the bitter orange blossoms as top notes. Being the bouquet of hearts, it brings together a thousand flowers, composed from all-season flower species: roses, jasmine, violets, gardenia, hyacinth, daffodil, tuberous. Amber gives an overwhelming masculine elegance to this bouquet with a predominantly citrus tinge.
Notes: Néroli & Orange, Mille Fleurs : Rose, Jasmin, Violette,...Ambre
