June 1660, Isle of Pheasants, Basque region, on the Spanish-French border
Maria Teresa, the Infanta of Spain, is offered to Louis XIV in exchange for peace between the two nations.
Innocently perfumed with Orange flower water, her powdery complexion blushes as the gallant King lays his eyes on her for the first time. She opens her scented fan and steals a look back.
The olfactive snapshot of the Spanish Court, as they envelope the Infanta Maria Teresa, about to be handed over to the French Crown.
