    Default La Reine Margot by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier

    2nd in MPG's historical scents series, after the George Sand one.

    Can't find reviews or much discussion. Anyone tried this yet?

    Jardanel, I cannot help you but do echo your question.
    A while ago, I asked the store owner where I buy my niche perfumes about La Reine Margot: he made a disgusted face and told me he wasn't going to order it because it was one of the worst perfumes he'd ever smelled.
    I didn't inquire further but my curiosity remained...in fact, it increased.

    Hello, Lady in Black,

    Well, that was an awfully subjective response from him! From what I've been able to glean, it's a jasmine-influenced scent. Which leads me to say, just how bad could it be, to me anyway, since I like jasmine. I'll have to break down and get a sample from beautyhabit.

    just in case anyone wants to know 3 years later... you can find the perfume at Les Senteurs in London. I have a sample now and its starts out very strong, a bit old-ladyesque but then it softens into a very spicy, almost powdery cinnamony scent with floral tones.

    I have also tried La Reine Margot and I too got it from Les Senteurs.
    On me it's a big jasmine scent for the first couple of hours, the white florals make a show and then it's about the Jasmine again this time with a Russian leather accord, after about 8 hours it fades to a gentle sweet amber base.
    Apart from the raucus start theres not a great deal of sillage.
    No it's not a scent for fluffy bunnies, but a reflection of the woman and the scents that were available to her created in a manner that was appropriate to the time. Queen Margot; a woman who preserved the hearts of her dead lovers and carried them around in boxes secreted in her skirts.
    To my mind a work of art clear in it's intention and it resulting creation, niche perfumery at it's best.

    I too got a sample from Les Senteurs... and I think I have contributed to a similar thread here about La Reine Margot. This is lovely, old-fashioned (which is all positive) and grand stuff, which I personally cannot wear comfortably, because it is too loud for my taste.
