Versailles was referred to as "the perfumed court," and yet it could not stave off the stench of human waste, as the cistern was located directly below the palace foundation which was right below the Queen's (Marie Antoinette) chambers. While Louis XIV preferred the strong scents of flowers - orange blossom being a favourite - perfume developed over the 18th century developing the trade into an art. The second oldest perfumery in France the House of Houbigant's advertisement reads, "It is to the beauty of the face what the morning dew is to the flowers; it refreshes and stimulates the skin while imbuing it with exquisite smoothness..."
