Orangers en Fleurs by Houbigant is a cheerful fragrance, great for spring and summer!
The orange tree, of which its blossoms and fruits grow simultaneously, is the symbol of fertility and abundance, of innocence and marriage, but also stands for eternal love.
According to tradition, the bride had orange blossom in her corsage or her bridal bouquet. This custom originally came from ancient China, but Queen Victoria was the one who kept the tradition alive by wearing a wreath of orange blossom at her wedding in 1840.

Houbigant is one of the oldest French fragrance houses, which is still fully in business and as ever run by the family! In 1775, the royals and nobles in Paris were charmed by the fragrances created by perfumer Jean-Francois Houbigant; among one of them was Marie-Antoinette, queen of France and wife of Louis XVI. Following that, Houbigant was appointed in 1829 to be the perfumer of Her Royal Highness Princess Adelaide d'Orleans and mother of King Louis-Philippe. In 1838, the French fragrance house even acquired the license of Perfumer for Her Majesty, Queen Victoria of England, and in 1890 Csaar Alexander III appointed Houbigant as perfumer for the imperial Russian court. Nowadays, Houbigant is situated in Paris and their perfumes are composed in Grasse.
More to love by Houbigant
Floral fragrances celebrate the delicious scent of flowers, being the richest source of inspiration for perfumers. The use of flowers in perfumes have been used since antiquity; from soft delicate flowers like freesia, muguet and blossoms, to narcotic flowers like jasmine, tuberose and gardenia... Enjoy, and smell the roses!
