One of the first champions of women's rights in an age when they were little more than chattel, Christine was literate and wrote a book called The City of Women which was an allegorical account of the argument for women to be treated as equals to men. It was mocked in the famous Romance of the Rose but the famous Bocaccio agreed with and publicised the thoughts of Christine in his works as well. I learned that the name of her land was Feminia. Shot through with neroli and finished off with citrus and a bright white musk (unlike any other I have in my possession). This is a bright and inspiring scent, youthful and spring like, but with a good deal of power.
