Scent of a regent

Sofia Coppola's film "Marie Antoinette" drew mixed reactions here in France, but I must admit I loved the movie, which shows Kirsten Dunst in teen queen mode lolling amid candy-colored cakes.

For a real taste of exclusivity, why not treat yourself to the 18th century queen's scent? Created by famed perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, the fragrance is only available at the Chateau de Versailles. Based on historical research by writer Elisabeth de Feydeau, Kurkdjian composed a heady bouquet of rose, iris, jasmine, tuberose and orange flower, punctuated by notes of cedar and sandalwood. There are only 1,000 bottles of the juice, priced at a dizzying $450. Now that's a royal treat!
