All participants and accompanying persons are invited to take part to the conference excursion on Wednesday 20 afternoon that will be dedicated to the visit of the Chamerolles castle which houses a museum dedicated to perfumes.
In 1992 the home of Lancelot of the Lake reopened after five years of extensive restoration. Refurnished to recreate the atmospere which reigned here at the time of its successive occupants, the château houses a unique collection of furniture and objects which retrace the history of perfume and hygiene throughout the centuries. The « Promenade des Parfums » is a reminder and tribute to the presence of the numerous industrial perfum sites – including prestigious brand-names – which have set up in Loiret. In 1987, only fallow land and ditches remained of the Renaissance garden laid out at the end of the 16th century by Lancelot II of the Lake (grandson of Lancelot I, who built the château). Today it has recovered all its charm of years gone by. A garden with a pratical purpose as much as charm and decoration, it has six flowerbeds.
