Luis XIV is most popularly known as the Sun King, however he was also the king of fashion as we know it today. He was a man of style and grandeur! He invented luxury and the glamour of fashion, and made it France's most profitable industry! He founded the industries of textile, clothing and jewellery and put well-trained experts in charge of them. His own style was inspired by a lavish way of life, artistry and colour. He started the long-lived tradition of French luxury goods and made France a dominant force in the world of fashion.

Luis XIV transformed Château de Versailles from a hunting lodge into the centre of social life! He insisted on a strict dress code and etiquette, maintaining that luxury was a necessity.

Amongst his most cherished fashion accessories was the elegance of perfume/cologne locked in a luxurious bottle. Louise XIV was noted for his love of fragrance and his perfume maker, Mr Martial, was elevated to the state of celebrity for his service to the king. He was called  'Doux Fleurant' – Sweet Smelling for his love of aromas.

Luis XIV was the paragon of masculinity and style! He gave birth to fashion as we know it and no wonder he was a man of many women, his sense of vogue, pride and elegance were irresistible. 

 

Promenade a Versailles pour Lui  is infused with the spirit of his flirtatiousness, lavish flair and thirst for adventure. A summer afternoon walk through the court of Versailles, amongst its well-dressed residents, with the intoxicating aromas of the gardens of the palace.

The top notes are an invigorating burst of citrus energy combined with elegant jasmine that rounds and balances the mixture.

The heart holds and intricately combines fundamental forces of nature – earth and water: spicy notes of nutmeg and ocean water mix with the soft floral summer sweetness to create an intoxicating middle that comes to rest upon a beautiful wooden musky finish.

French style dictates fashion and is still one of the most elite sources of inspiration in the industry, and the formulation of Promenade a Versailles pour Lui comes directly from the place of its birth - Château de Versailles! The scent awakens the spirit of virulence, pride and recapture the lust for life and grandeur! Certainly a great choice for any man and, even more certainly, a scent that every woman will find captivating and attractive.
