Just after the French Revolution, Pierre Francois Lubin founded his Perfume House, at rue Sainte Anne in Paris. He provided perfumed ribbons, ball masks and ride powders to the ‘Incroyables” and “Merveilleuses”. His most famous creation however was the “Eau Vivifiante” later called “Eau de Lubin”.
The fragrance soon won him the favour of the Imperial court.
Today some special attention to these 3 Lubin fragrances.
Figaro; “An aromatic, green, woody chypre”
L’eau neuve; “Cool breeze and simply keynote”
Inédite; “A fresh but sweet, spicy “floriental” fragrance”

BLACK Comme des Garçons Eau de Toilette, an emergency, guerrillalike, spiced-up scent.
Head: black pepper from Madagascar, incense of Somalia
Heart: leather, licorice, birch tar, pepper wood
Base: cedarwood, vetiver
The result? A swoon-inducing trip into the smokey, spiritual world of incense, touched by the solar warmth of pepper and cedar wood. The licorice note adds a touch of cleansing ‘eternalness’ and, at times, feels uplifting. And in the end, we’re left in a dizzying spell of delight. Dark and mysterious, yet ultimately calm and reassuring.
