Interesting about President Theodore Roosevelt...
Theodore Roosevelt's mother and wife died only hours apart on Valentine's Day in 1884. Each loss was an unexpected shock. His 48-year-old mother, Martha "Mittie" Roosevelt, had been taken ill and succumbed to typhoid fever. On the same day, his wife of four years, Alice Lee, died of Bright’s disease, a severe kidney ailment. Only two days before her death, Alice Lee had given birth to the couple’s daughter, Alice. In his diary, Roosevelt marked Valentine's Day 1884 with a black “X” and wrote, "The light has gone out of my life."
Theodore and Alice.... he was only 28 years old....
The president and first lady might as well be American royalty, and Teddy Roosevelt's lovely first wife, Alice, was responsible for her own unique brand of nuptial perfumery. Instead of a wedding fragrance, though, her famed scent came from a honeymoon.
While she and Teddy were making their way across Europe on a grand romantic tour, Alice became enchanted by the headily scented Bulgarian roses she encountered, and asked the Creed perfume house to create a special honeymoon fragrance from them. The result was Creed's Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare ($365), which is still sold today.
