A Scented Palace by Elisabeth de Feydeau chronicles the life of Marie Antoinette's favorite perfumer Jean-Claude Fargeon. The eventual royal perfumer was born the son of a perfumer in Montpellier. As his hometown was losing the fragrance industry battle to Grasse, Fargeon moved to Paris following his studies to complete an apprenticeship, after which he began running his own business.His new bride, Victoire, was especially keen on learning everything about the perfume business, having previously worked in the shop of her father, a gunsmith. With Fargeon creating his blends and Victoire running the books, the couple was able to build a successful business together.
Fargeon's first infiltrated the queen's royal circle through her infamous hairdresser Leonard, for whom Fargeon prepared various hair pomades for him to use on the queen. It was really an investment on the part of the young perfumer as Leonard never paid his tab, even after Fargeon had been providing him with materials and cosmetics to use on his clients for over fifteen years. While the queen certainly favored the pomades, Fargeon did not receive his own commission until quite a while after. Serendipitously, both Marie Antoinette and Victoire were expecting their first child during the year of 1778, and Fargeon took this opportunity to create new blends of fragrances, cosmetics and bath products that would suit the sensitive senses of the two mothers-to-be. With Victoire's help, Fargeon was able to put together a shipment for the queen that she was so taken with that she became a loyal customer. As the years passed, Marie Antoinette grew to rely more heavily on the perfumer and even commissioned him to make two special blends; a fragrance for her that would capture the spirit of her private getaway, the Petit Trianon, as well as a fragrance for an "elegant man", which many believe may have been for Count Axl von Fersen, often said to have been her secret lover. Fargeon's blend for the "parfum du Trianon" contained notes of rose, orange flower, lavender, lemon, bergamot, galbanum, iris, jonquil, jasmine, lily, tuberose, vanilla, cedar, sandalwood, amber, musk and benzoin.
