François Rancé paid homage to the Mother of the emperor, creating for her Laetitia in 1806. This refined and highly sophisticated fragrance, charmingly feminine and of an intensity and character that reflected her passionate and strong-willed nature, has been recreated by Jeanne Sandra Rancé, current head of the Rancé perfume house, using the original formula created by her forefather, Françios.

On the heart of the rousing Bulgarian rose and the enchanting magnolia is grafted the fresh and rich head of bergamot and neroli. Supported by a base of patchouli and cistus labdanum, with the intensity of renunion vanilla, these create a perfume with a great personality, intense and enveloping, made to seduce and conquer.

This precious historic perfume has been created entirely with natural essences. In fact, Jeanne Sandra Rancé has insisted on absolute excellence for what was, and is, one the greatest perfume creations of all time. For the main notes, those that give the Eau de Parfum its extraordinary character, she has selected on natural millésimé essences (that is, those produced in the best years). For Laetitia essences of exceptional years have been selected, such as the 'vintage' Bulgarian Rose and Orange Blossoms of 2005.

The bottle is etched; with gold lettering and tied with a peach-coloured ribbon.
