Albine de Vassal was Napoleon's love-struck partner who, towards the end of his 'career' (and life), chose to follow the Emperor into exile on Saint Helena, where she gave birth to Hélène. Hélène and Albine were two rays of sunshine that brought light into Napoleon's life. The child was called Hélène Napoleon Bonaparte.

Jean Rancé, son of François, the founder of the Rancé perfumery in 1795, was a fervant follower of Napoleon and dedicated to Hélène this creation as a manifestation of tenderness and sublime love.

This highly feminine fragrance is an ode to romantic love and joyous youthfulness. The fresh, delicate notes of Neroli and the arial scent of Ylang Ylang blend with scents of Rose and Sambac Jasmine, creating a delicate and harmonious perfume with a very sensual undertone. In contrast to the unashamedly floral Josephine, created by his father François, Jean's Hélène is a sophisticated woody oriental.
