The recipe for "triple-vanilla chocolate with ambergris” won over Louis XV, who made it a ritual and love potion that he shared with his favourite, Madame de Pompadour. She had a secret weakness: in the royal chamber, she was not a great lover. The love potion she shared with the King was a "triple-vanilla chocolate with ambergris", an aphrodisiac popular with Libertines that awakened the senses. Served with its macaroon perfumed with musk, this thick and sensual elixir was as sweet as it was aphrodisiac.
Notes: Absolute of Cocoa, Vanilla Bourbon and Ambergris
Box-tree and jasmine star in this candle, bringing to mind these enchanted niches of royal power.
