Hidden away down the winding corridors of the Château de Fontainebleau, there lies a private chamber that was decorated and furnished especially for Queen Marie-Antoinette in 1777 by her husband, King Louis XVI. A place of rest and contemplation for the Queen – or the setting of extramarital liaisons, according to some sources – Le Boudoir Turc is an endlessly fascinating room that blends the classical French style of the age with decorative flourishes from the Orient.
A fragrant and refined aura in which the exotic scents of jasmine and vanilla overlap with Marie-Antoinette’s tastes for powdery and floral notes.

Decorative objects of rare distinction and prestige, Dorin’s scented candles are the perfect gift for yourself or a loved one, offering a sensory journey back through time to the golden age of Versailles.
As with all the Maison’s products, our candles are handcrafted in France using the finest raw materials, guaranteeing the highest levels of expertise, authenticity and quality. Our scented candles burn smoothly and produce an even diffusion of aromas. Dorin’s specially scented wax is poured into velvety white frosted glass pots. Each candle is adorned with a golden insignia inspired by a stone medallion that was once found in the Maison’s workshops in Paris, bearing the words Dorin, Fournisseur de la Cour 1780 (“Dorin, Supplier to the Court 1780”). The gilded metal snuffer, embossed with the Dorin crest, visually complements the candle while helping to preserve the fragrance of the wax. The white and gold visual identity is simplicity itself, so as not to attract attention away from the collection’s five exquisite fragrances.Know more
