The creative foundations of Arty Fragrance by Elisabeth de Feydeau are built on the lavish opulence of the Versailles court society, which also gave rise to a system of objects that imbued the French tradition of luxury with abundance and enchantment. “Create and excel”, those were the words of Colbert, Minister of Finance under Louis XIV, when, in 1661, he established French art and craftsmanship as models that were to become the origin of French luxury. In France, the Château de Versailles had been the theatre of royal splendor since Louis XIV, known as the Sun King, who contributed to the country’s political and artistic influence. The Château de Versailles remains one of the most highly visited locations in the world and a creative impetus for the Arty Fragrance by Elisabeth de Feydeau brand.
Arty Fragrance by Elisabeth de Feydeau endeavors to create exceptional products steeped in tradition, for luxury is unchanging, eternal, rare, the polar opposite of a trend. The word luxury comes from the Latin: luxus, which is translated by ‘dislocated’ or ‘excess’. In the eighteenth century, the meaning of luxury shifted toward well-being, refinement and the art of living. Noble materials had to be used in every creation.
The values of creation draw inspiration from the splendour of the Court of Versailles and the elegance of French art of living, revisited with a contemporary twist, steeped in luxury, tradition, authenticity, expertise and the pursuit of pleasure.
The name of each candle is an invitation to travel back in time and rediscover fragrances of old. They are the beginning of an authentic story that unfolds in the refined scents and opens the doors to the imagination.
