Queen Anne Boleyn

Notes: Vegan Civet, Champagne, Dragon's Blood, Violet

She grew up the darling of the French court before joining King Henry VIII (after her sister had already taken a turn as his mistress). She was a lady-in-waiting to Queen Katherine of Aragon when she caught the notorious king's eye. It was for the dark beauty of Anne Boleyn that the English Reformation was set into motion. Her charm and cleverness kept the king intrigued for seven years before he was finally able to secure an anulment for his first marriage. Their secret love affair lead to her ascension as Queen of England in 1533. Boleyn gave birth to one of England's greatest queens, Elizabeth I, however, Henry's obsession with a legitimate male heir ultimately made him lose interest in his second wife. She was ordered executed after false charges of adultery and incest.

Anne was rumored to have special taste for Champagne and Violets. This perfume is dedicated to England's stylish, yet doomed Queen.
