3 - From the Madeleine to Flashback Luxury House
ROYAL ROOTS: The Madeleine de Proust was born in Lorraine in the 18th century in the kitchens of Stanislaw Leczinsky, KING OF POLAND and DUKE OF LORRAINE ( and father-in-law to the King of France Louis XV ). Stanislaw had these peculiar little tea-time cakes made especially for the French philosopher Voltaire and Madame de Chatelet who were guests at his castle.
THE SYMBOLISM of the Madeleine goes back to the famous French writer MARCEL PROUST, who showed that taste and scent could be as exceptionally powerful as great music in conjuring up memories.
MEMORIES and ROMANCE are emotions common to all and every nationality : they are universally human.
« The allegory of the Madeleine of Proust in today's international language becomes : FLASHBACK ! »
