Archive: The Alabaster Queen


Recommended Posts



Sovereigns were the trendsetters in their bygone eras, and Queen Catherine de Medici was one of the most influential, beyond her position as a leading patron of the arts during her reign, as well as the woman who was credited with bringing a greater sense of elegance to a nation already known for its refinement. Catherine was praised for her alabaster skin, the pallor of which she achieved with the aid of a very special potion crafted by her personal perfumer, Rene de Florentin, summoning him to France from Italy when she was in need of his talents. We have recreated this beauty secret in fragrant form: almond milk, lemon and honey, to which we add a luscious slathering of vanilla and buttercream.


ALMOND and ALMOND MILK ~ Fertility, stamina, masculine energy, business success, money, prosperity, wisdom, intuition, insight, talisman for successful and fertile marriage.
HONEY ~ Enticing, seductive; use to bewitch a straying or hesitant lover. Happiness, fulfillment.
LEMON ~ Energizing, uplifting. Longevity, faithfulness, fidelity, friendship. Used to attract spirits.
BUTTERCREAM ~ Nurturing, soothing, eases troubled relationships. Goddess energy.
VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing.
