Powder room

This is from several days ago at Fontainebleau, one of the former homes of the French kings… When you refer to the ladies room as the “powder room” that comes from the French court. Instead of taking a bath with water (horrors!) they would go into a special room and powder themselves from head to toe and emerge from that “clean” and ready to face a new day. Who knew!

  • Guess that’s why they were the perfume center of the world for so very long, I guess they really needed it:). Hope you’re having a good time.
