La Cour des Senteurs

A Thousand Scents

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.

Les Jardins des Senteurs

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 Boutique

Guerlain’s Boutique

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!

    What a treat that would be! I wish I were heading that way this Summer, but we’re heading south instead…wayyy south! 🙂 Hope you are both doing well!

    Sounds fantastic! Like Barbara, we are heading in that general direction this summer, but will be far south of Versailles, unfortunately. (Although i am always on the look out for an excuse to travel to Paris!) Hope you ladies are well. I’m back at home – not quite back into blog groove yet. Hopefully soon. XOXO

    Omgosh, I would have so enjoyed seeing this while in Paris this last fall! I love fragrance and was a lucky girl to go into Guerlain and find a lovely fragrance to bring home. Be sure and read my post tomorrow. It has a connection to French Perfume!! I think you will enjoy seeing it.
