Francois Rance created the fragrance “Josephine” within the strict guidelines of his pupil Napoleon Bonaparte as a dedication to Josephine, the love of his life. Since Josephine was drawn to exotic rose oils, only the finest May Rose was used in this joyful spring floral bouquet.
In 1859 Francois also created a fragrance (“Eugenie”) from the most refined and delicate essences for Eugenie de Montijo, the wife of Napoleon III.
Shades of Sleep nestled in Inglewood is honored to now carry these fragrances from Rance together with several of their triple milled soaps and when paired with towels from the Abyss collection, promises a most luxurious bathing experience.
