Perfumed Candle - Rose de Francesold by Musée de l'Armée - Invalides
DescriptionThe use of rose extracts can be tracked back to the antiquity. It spread in Europe in the time of the Crusades, when knights brought back aromatic plants and spices from the Orient. This passion for fragrances spread throughout France during the Renaissance with the reign of King François First (1494-1547). The rose, symbol of perfection, was then one of the most popular scents.
