In Massie's book, it says that the girls began taking warm baths at night with perfumed bath water. Is this implying that they did not spray the perfume on themselves but in their bath water? How much was used for one bathe?

I think what Massie meant was that they used perfumed bath essences but they also used perfumes on themselves. ;-) I don't think they used much essence for their bath.

Oh, people put drops of essential oils and perfumes in baths all the time. (at least where I live, and by people who are interested in that sort of thing, aromatherapy etc.) I always thought of it as being that they would have maybe two or three drops of their favorite scent in the bathwater and that it would scent their skin.  ???

I was just reading something on Coty and I think something I came across could solve the issue with Olga's perfume.

There IS no Coty perfume titled Rose Thé. However, Coty states Olga's preference for their La Rose (Jacqueminot). Considering Lili Dehn was the only source for the information on OTMA's favorite perfumes and it was written originally in French, it's quite possible that "Rose Thé" was merely an error in translation.

La Rose Jacqueminot emerged about the same time as Jasmin de Corse.

It's the scent of roses and warm spice.

Interesting...I always wondered about "Rose The", it always sounded sort of wierd.
Roses and warm spice...sounds lovely...

P.S. a sort of Romanov sighting...in the movie "Ballet Shoes", the character of Theo Dane has this perfume called "Coty Chypre" (sp?). I just recently realized the Romanov connection, (actually there's another reference to them in that film, 'Madame Fidolia' the ballet teacher was supposedly a favorite of the Tsar.) I can't believe I didn't notice the Coty connection until lately...but anyways, I wonder if it was a real Coty scent. Another thing-- why is it "Lilas" instead of "Lilac"? Is lilas French for lilac? And what is the meaning of "de Corse" and "Jaquemont"?

Coty Cyphre was a  scent, but it was not produced until 1917. Cyphre means Cypress.

No, cypress is cyprès in French. Cyphre doesn't mean anything. It was Chypre, which means Cyprus.

Chypre is indeed French for cyprus and was a term first used by Coty after visiting Cyprus island and experiencing the many scents. It's now more of a type of perfume which features citrus and floral notes over dark, earthy ones.

Rose The would sound strange, but it was actually Rose Thé which is tea rose.

Lilas is French for lilac and 'de corse' refers to Corsica: Coty's place of birth. Jacqueminot is a rose named after General Jacqueminot, of France

Here in Argentina we calls "Rosa Té" (Tea rose, indeed)   a kind of  a rose that is cream colored. I suppose the scent "Rose Thé" was referring to the smell of this kind of flower.

Yes, so either it was a perfume by a different perfumer or a mistranslation. Coty had no perfume titled Rose Thé.

The coty perfume originals and not remakes smell very nice but very strong! There is a reason the drops were put into bath water. I own JDC and my friends owns La Rose Jacqueminot
