Default miracle of St.Bernadette's Remains

I believe they put some sort of wax over the face after it had been exhumed for a second time do to the face turning dark. I one had a book from the library about Lourdes and St.Bernadette.
Her body actually lies in the chapel of the motherhouse of the Sisters of Charity of Nevers,in France.The sisters don't have any convents in the US at this time, but do in England.Go to Tan Books, Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and type in Joan Cruz. She has written several books on this subject.

The smell of flowers,especially roses are common reports when these saints bodies were first exhumed.Sometime sthey are exhumed a second time.
I don't think they have found the answer to why these remains are pretty intact.
