Marie Antoinette’s Fragrance

Perfumer Lubin has recreated Marie Antoinette’s fragrance of preference, according to Vogue. A blend of rose, jasmine and bergamot, the scent was created by Jean-Louis Fargeon, “originally conceived as an ode to her beloved Trianon gardens at Versailles.” The fragrance, called Black Jade, is being sold for $130 at New York’s Aedes de Venustas and online at aedes.com.

I’ll have to find out where this place is so I can get a whiff 😉

Correction, its cost is now $160!

Laduree in NYC

During the Bastille Day Festival I was introduced to some delicious raspberry tart pastries from Financier Patisserie  I ordered 4 because they were so gooood 🙂

Now I found out that the well known Parisian  Shop and Cafe, Laduree, will open up a store in NYC located @  864 Madison Avenue.  Their website does not say when the Grand Opening will be 😦 all I know it’s either in July or August. But regardless I will be venturing there for some macarons :).
