If you’re lucky enough to be travelling to France this summer and are scheduling your obligatory trip to Versailles, then you shouldn’t miss La Cour des Senteurs, a new sensory experience dedicated to the art of perfume which just opened near the palais.
Home to the renowned International Perfumer School which trains some of the greatest nez (noses) in France, Versailles now provides visitors with a chance to play perfumier for a day, wander the Jardins des Senteurs, a garden filled with a thousand scents, and buy limited edition candles, soaps and perfumes especially designed for the opening at the Maison des Parfums.
Diptyque’s three mini candles in Rose, Green Mint and Jasmine celebrate Versailles’ gardens while Guerlain’s exclusive scent pays homage to Marie-Antoinette (her favorite flower was jasmine.) Even Lenôtre created a floral-inspired macaroon… What a way to awaken all your senses and enjoy what Versailles has to offer!
