In honor of:

In ten years of writing, he left a lasting legacy to French literature, with 6 novels and over 300 short stories. He finished "Bel-ami" at the Etretat Guillette manor.
The tuberose is a mysterious flower. Mme de la Vallière, a favorite of Louis XIV, loved the flower. Zola said that its scent had a human odor. Heady, persistent, worrying, tuberose is no less than erotic...
This delicious little fruit overflows with vitamins, growing on wild brambles at the end of summer, a taste of childhood. It abounds in the Norman countryside, and its fruity aroma lends itself to teatime jams.
Vanilla is made from the fruit of certain types of orchids. It is highly sought after as a flavoring in the food industry, but it is also used as a solid base note in famous fragrances. Louis XIV loved vanilla and wanted to have it cultivated, but it was not a success until the 19th century.
