Jean-Louis Fargeon (1748-1806), Marie Antoinette's official perfume maker, treated her to numerous perfumes and scents many of which where for her exclusive use. From perfumed gloves to sweet smelling sachets and toilet waters, the French Queen used this extension of her love of flowers to enhance her daily life. She truly believed that perfume helped to keep both her body and spirit healthy.
A Scented Palace: The Secret History of Marie Antoinette's Perfumer by Elisabeth de Feydeau recounts the life of Faregon, from the day of his birth to his final escape from the guillotine. Along the way, we also learn intmate details of Marie Antoinette's life and of the court that surrounded her. Of particular interest to me is the creation of Parfum du Trianon, a custom scent meant to capture the atmosphere of her beloved Petit Trianon.

I'm delighted to announce that Tatiana's Tea Room is now available online in the new SL Marketplace!
Though it took me a while to get everything shipshape (why oh why did I use so much BBCode on XStreet that couldn't be translated over?!), I'm quite please with the results & I hope that you like them as well. All in all, It seems to me that the SL Marketplace is actually a much better shopping experience than XStreet. This is very exciting and I plan to be added more to my online store in the days to come!
I've also given my twitter page, Tatiana's Tea Room on Twitter a fresh new look. If you would like to follow me there I would love to reciprocate, just give me a shout.
Many thanks for your continued support!

It's been a lazy summer for me in the Coeurs but now that September is here, it's time to get back to work!
Stormy, MariaLouisa & I certainly didn't waste any time before starting the traditional "Grape Stomp" at the September Coeur Fair. We predict that this year's vintage is going to be particularly good!!
