Château de Lassay - Lassay-les-Châteaux, Mayenne, FRANCE (built in the early years of the twelfth century, was probably in a motte and bailey castle. The present castle was classé as a monument historique in 1862 and is still a private residence)

Pomander, from the French pomme d’ ambre or apple of ambergris. For carrying Ambergris, the only scent of animal origin obtained without killing, imprisoning or torturing the animal that produces it. The chambers were filled with scented paste and powder, using beeswax and other aromatics, each chamber sometimes housing a different odor. Aristocrats of both sexes would carry these devices to occasionally sniff to ward off the malodorous smells of the street.
