The orange tree, from which blossoms and fruits grow simultaneously, is the symbol of fertility and abundance (because the tree bears both the blossom and the fruit at the same time), of innocence and marriage, but also stands for eternal love.
According to tradition, the bride had orange blossom in her corsage or bridal bouquet. This custom originated in ancient China, but Queen Victoria was the one who perpetuated the tradition by wearing an orange blossom wreath at her wedding in 1840.

Houbigant is one of the oldest French fragrance houses, which is still fully in business and as ever run by the family! The reason that this company is and has been successful for so long already is due to the 200 year old tradition of French elegance combined with the desire to innovate.
In 1775, the royals and nobles in Paris were already charmed by the fragrances created by perfumer Jean-Francois Houbigant, among which was Marie-Antoinette, queen of France and wife of Louis XVI.
Following that, Houbigant was appointed in 1829 to be the perfumer of Her Royal Highness Princess Adelaide d'Orleans and mother of King Louis-Philippe. In 1838, the French fragrance house even acquired the license of Perfumer for Her Majesty, Queen Victoria of England, and in 1890 Csaar Alexander III appointed Houbigant as perfumer for the imperial Russian court.
Nowadays, Houbigant is situated in Paris and their perfumes are composed in Grasse in Southern France, thé fragrance garden of the world. Houbigant created his first works there 200 years ago.
