For all information, please contact the Boutique in the Cour des Senteurs, 8 rue de la Chancellerie – VERSAILLES, 01 30 84 14 60.To let you be swept away by the majesty of Versailles, Guerlain wanted to celebrate the memory of the royal festivities at the Château of Versailles with a unique perfume, sold exclusively in its Cour des Senteurs Boutique. The splendour, radiance, magic and elegance of these majestic balls are crowned by the intoxicating scent of sunny jasmine.

Inspired by the gardens in the Château of Versailles, Thierry Wasser wanted the finest essences to compose this bouquet with a royal sillage. The fragrance opens with lively green notes of bergamot and galbanum. Beautiful and noble, sensual and voluptuous Grandiflora jasmine, native to Calabria, leads the dance at its heart, adorned in fresh springtime flowers of cyclamen and jasmine.

Base notes of amber and white musk majestically compose a sillage of unforgettable grace.

This royal scent is held in the iconic White Bee bottle. A refined knot, made in a red grosgrain ribbon trimmed in black adorns the neck of the bottle. This scarlet red evokes the radiant court desired by Louis XIV, who alone had the right to wear red heels. The immaculate white label showcases the star, the Sun King's emblem and Guerlain's favoured symbol.
