A crown-shaped brioche scented with orange blossom water, the Pogne il thought to have been invented in the Middle Ages. In the 19th century, the Pogne was the Easter-time brioche, which celebrated the end of Lent, a period of rigorous abstinence. These days, the Pogne is more widely available, while safeguarding its tradition for high quality.
