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.
