    OK here is the answer :

    Interesting enough (and you need to put this back in the context of that time) the quote in that love letter written by Napoléon to Josephine during one of his early campaigns was: "Je reviens en trois jours, ne te laves pas !" ("I return in three days; do not bathe!")

    The House of Worth (which is actually French/British) created the famous perfume "Je reviens" whose name was supposedly inspired by that quote. Please see:
