Through historical research and careful consideration, Dauphine beauté brings to life the beauty secrets of the French court left by the legacy of Marie Antoinette's master apothecary and perfumer Jean Louis Fargeon. This parisian apothecary began to bring the luxurious cosmetic service to the courtiers of Versailles using the precious and vital benefits of floral waters and botanical oil preparations to treat and scent the skin. Along with his ingenious and notable formulations, Fargeon wins the heart of Marie Antoinette as the royal purveyor of sumptuous perfumes and rich botanical cosmetics. The last Dauphine and Queen of France, reputedly having a life long love of flowers and aromatherapy, requests Jean Louis to prepare her botanical scents and natural restorative beauty treatments for her toilette.
At Dauphine beauté we are dedicated to maintaining the tradition of creative and quality apothecary beauty solutions. We work within the style of the master apothecary, reconceiving some of Fargeon's original great formulations using the finest natural botanical ingredients and embodying a long tradition of high quality craftsmanship. Our creations are expressly made to reinforce the depth and perfect harmony of the nourishing benefits from the botanical kingdom. They are available to you here and through carefully selected niche apothecary boutiques.
