How the French Invented Love
La Seduction: How the French Play the Game of Life
The Essence of Style: How the French Invented High Fashion, Fine Food, Chic Cafes, Style, Sophistication, and Glamour

There is for sure a mystique about French women!.
Do you believe everything or do you have doubts?
Are the French such great and seductors/seducters ?
What can they teach us ?.
I propose you to answer the question using great French celebrities and seducters from the XVI to the XVIII century :
The Duke of Richelieu, who inspired Choderlos de Laclos to write "Dangerous Liaisons" ; the beautiful Diane de Poitiers with whom King Henri II was madly in love, although she was 20 years older; Madame de Montespan, who through her beauty and intelligence remained Louis XIV’s ‘favourite’ lover for more than 20 years.
The Duke of Lauzun, who long before Casanova, had invented the real art of séduction .
