Napolťonís flacon for smelling salts or perfume from St. Helena

-

Napolťon was fastidious about cleanliness. He began each day with an hour-long hot bath. He then shaved himself. Following that, he washed his hands with almond paste and his face, neck and ears with soap and water. Finally, he would strip to the waist and pour eau de cologne over his head and down his torso. This bottle was filled with violet-scented perfume.
