Champagne & Roses | Marie Antoinette
Marie Antoinette is synonymous with opulence and luxury. She gained an unpopular reputation amongst the French population of the time for her extravagant lifestyle that nowadays she is remembered for.
Whilst the enduring legacy that coupe glasses were modelled on her breasts has been found untrue, the glass shape had been invented a few years before her birth, during her time on the throne Champagne became fashionable and luxurious.
Flowers were one of the most important passions of the French Queen with floral motifs decorating every palace she lived in. Roses were one of her favourites and in 1784, she ordered more than two thousand dog roses to be planted in the gardens of Trianon.
This candle opens with the luxurious fizz of champagne ending with the familiar and relaxing scent of roses making it the perfect fragrance to remind you of France’s last Queen.
