Hello Remi,

I didn't include des Crayères  because it is not a part of Polignac patrimony.    It used to be the residence of the Pommery family, and now houses one of the finest hotels in France.  It was part of the dowry of Jeanne-Alexandrine-Louise Pommery when she married Comte Charles de Polignac on 27 March, 1851.

According to 1921's Almanach de Gotha, troisieme partie

These are some of the homes lived in by the Polignac family:  Please note that many may have been destroyed by WWII, or may no longer be owned by Polignac family members.  I don't know which are patrimony of the Polignac family or which may have been brought into the family through marriage.

château de Canappeville, Eure
château de St-Jean-du-Cardonnay, Seine- Inférieure
château de Polignac, Haute-Loire
château de La Jumelliere, Maine et Loire
château de Navailles près Pau
château Le Plessis
château de Limésy, Seine-Inférieure
château de Kerbastic, Morbihan
château de La Voulte-Polignac, par La Voulte, Seine et Loire
château de Kerscamp, Marbihan
château de Bournville, Aisne

Have you thought about Creed?  There is a wonderful group of men's colognes.

Thank you, Fyodor Petrovich, for corrected Mr. Lowe's Danish and putting him in his palae, oops, I mean place.

You are very welcome.  You can also find a description of the scents on the Internet.

I know of the French actress,  Princess Anne Wiazemsky, who is descended from the Russian Rurikid family of Princes Vyazemsky-Counts Levashov.  Through her mother, Claire Mauriac,  she is the granddaughter of François Mauriac, member of L'Académie française. Between 1967 and 1979, Princess Anne Wiazemsky was married to Jean-Luc Godard, French-Swiss film director, screen writer and critic.  I would like to know more about this family, especially the origins of this title and any interesting members throughout the years.  Can anyone recommend to me any books or internet sites that might help me learn more.  I thank you in advance for your time.

what about the men's shaving accessories, esp. Melograno from Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella.  Santa Maria Novella is one of the oldest pharmacies in the world. The store in Florence, Italy opened to the public in 1612, but the fragrances and body products are based on recipes that the Dominican friars of Florence had been developing (using herbs from the monastery gardens) since the 13th century. It was held by the Dominicans until the late 19th century when it became a private business. Today they market a wide range of fragrances, bath and body products, and home fragrances.  The one in London is located in Walton Street number 117, London SW3 2HP  It might be perfect for your character.

Yes, you are correct.  "Madame la comtesse" would be correct French.


In France, "Si madame la comtesse permet?"  would only be used by family retainers, servants, and journalists from PdeV.  A respectable gentleman or lady would simply call her Madame de (family name).

kindest regards
