The story behind this product

The secret powers of a bare flower for the love of Louis XIV, Melle de La Vallière surrounded herself with a bastion of sweet and shattering intensity of tuberoses. Damp fragrance of an intoxicating love from the King’s bedroom to her convent, Louise de la Vallière personifies this deeply sensual flower, whose plump and overwhelming scents represent true, dazzling and almost spiritual love. Françoise Louise de la Vallière was secretly in love with King Louis XIV, who made her one of his favourites. She bore him four children in the utmost secrecy. She crowded her bed with tuberoses to quell the queen's suspicions “...by inhaling these scents that were so dangerous to her condition, she thought she was risking her life, but she hoped to save her honour”... (excerpted from "La Duchesse de Lavallière" by Stéphanie Félicité de Genlis). Abandoned for Athénaïs de Montespan who took her place in the king's heart, she retired to Carmel and became “Sister Louise of Mercy”.
