Quelques Fleurs was composed by Robert Bienaime in 1912. This was special for the time because it was not an easily recognizable solifleur perfume, but a perfume in which a great many flowers were incorporated into an abstract composition.
The perfume opens with a floral bouquet of orange blossom, carnation, iris, jasmine, lily of the valley, orchid, rose, tuberose, ylang-ylang, heliotrope, and an original green accord of tarragon.
The Fragrance Guru: “One of the classics you must have smelled.”
A little fact: Quelques Fleurs was Princess Diana’s “signature scent” and she even wore it at her wedding to Prince Charles!

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.
