"Eau Sans Pareille was a "personal water" made with flowers and fruit that arrived at the Court of Versailles under Louis XV. It was a mix of citron, sweet lime, orange, verbena and bergamot zest macerated in Eau de Vie, in the manner of the eaux de Cologne that emerged in the early eighteenth century. These fragrant eaux were medicinal products, elixirs consumed to ward off illness and epidemics. Eau Sans Pareille was also an incomparable eau de toilette and beauty product endowed with invigorating and refreshing properties. In this candle, verbena works in harmony with petitgrain and rosemary to create luminous top notes."
