Fouquet was the ultimate traveler and had friends throughout the world. It was one day when his friends, Alessandro, a Parisian Aristocrat, and Chiara, an Italian couple who owned a villa in Provence had informed Fouquet that they would be moving. Upon his visit to their new home, Fouquet presented the couple with the best gift they could have imagined. It was a beautiful, green flask which contained all the magic of Provence; the aroma of more than 1600 wild plants that flowered every year in the countryside, the colors that changed within seasons, and the aroma of what they once called 'home'. It was then established that only an artist such as Fouquet was capable of transforming into a perfume the exuberant aromas of special places.
