Lustfulness and glamour
Versailles enchants, makes you smile, smile and makes you wink your eyes cheekily. Yes, perhaps one also breathes faster when thinking of past customs and traditions and secretly takes a step.
Which man was not attracted by the fact that ladies used not to wear underwear and were ready for anything "fast". This did not only mean the toilet, which at that time was simply done behind a door in the Great Palace of King Ludwig the 14th and the poor servants had to take care of cleanliness again.
It was a time of charms, fornication, lust, pomp, splendour, arrogance, immorality, celebrations, raptures, full beds, where everyone with everyone etc...
It was actually a very unhygienic time when water was dirty and not suitable for washing. That's why they powdered and perfumed the place up.
Bal à Versailles is dirty powdery. Heavy and sweet. Animalistically erotic and also again modest and well-behaved. A certain pee note cannot be denied, but it fits extremely "enchantingly" into this fragrance.
Iris root makes Bal à Versailles greasy and soft like butter. Benzoin spices it up again with its balsamic effect. Fluffy and soft, green-earthy patchouli nestles around bright yellow amber and becomes powdery-woody.
Citrus notes and neroli lift the "skirts" and pee blatantly over the vanilla, which contracts slightly in disgust and struggles for breath.
Lily of the valley, the little servant tries to get rid of this spoiled thing by ringing bells and fails enormously. The little bell goes silent, keeps on ringing twitching and eventually gives up.
Now comes the fat cook who carries a tray full of sweet, sticky delicious vanilla mandarins on his fleshy hands. Past the huge, large vases, which stand to the right and left of the room entrance and are full of heavy, turgid flowers. It smells pompous, but deliciously luxuriant.
What remains is a blossom-heavy powder dream, which also pleases the subjects and makes them equal to the "big ones" - no matter if they get caught or not.
Dirty! Yes, Bal à Versailles is dirty beautiful!
