Lubin parfum since 1798.
Just after the French revolution, Pierre Francois Lubin founded his Perfume House, at the rue St. Anne. in Paris.
He provided perfumed ribbons, ball masks and rice powders to the "incroyables and the Merveilleuses. His most famous creation however, was the "eau vivifiant" later called "eau de lubin". The fragrance soon won him favor with the imperial court. And so began Lubin's renown, thanks to Empress Josephine and Pauline Bonaparte, Princess Borghese. After the Bourbon Monarchy was restored, the Perfumer dedicated his fragrances to Queen Marie-Amelia. Thanks to these royal ladies, the crowned heads of Europe began to trust Lubin.
The house of Lubin, famous across Europe, familiar in France, England, and Russia was also the first perfume maker to conquer the New World in 1830. From the banks of the Mississippi to the Palaces of India, and across the great oceans, such luminaries as Guy De Maupassant brought the romance of travel and intrigue to their eager public, stretching their imaginations with tales of mystery and exotic venues, often characterized by intriguing scents and aromas.
The house of Lubin formed the legends of the French at home and abroad into evocative scents, reminiscent of the elegant Third Empire lifestyle, and the flourishing growth of communication, culture, commerce and cache.
Classical, sportif, hypnotizing, and alluring, Lubin's exploration of the world came through in his creations: his figurative, impressionist fragrances drew inspiration from the faraway countries. In his own way, the perfume maker brought to the west a knowledge of far distant and fascinating horizons. Voyagers, intrepid adventurers, engineers, poets, and businessmen at home all dreamt of faraway places full of promise, while aspiring to great romance, and pleasing the women they loved Lubin helped them do just that.
