Black Jade, Eau de Perfume
|TOP : galbanum, bergamot, cardamom | MIDDLE : rose, jasmine, incense, cinnamon | BASE : sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla, tonka bean, amber
A black jade bottle held the last remaining scents of a secret garden. The discovery of its formula, copied by an indiscreet apprentice, revealed its mysteries. It belonged to a queen in the Trianon rose gardens, far from the splendors of the Court, before the turmoil of history was unleashed. Entrusted to a noblewoman and very dear friend, it has come down to us through the ages to be reborn today.
Pierre-François Lubin is known today as the founder of modern perfumery, but first he was a simple apprentice tasked with delivering parcels to Queen Marie-Antoinette, and collecting the beauty secrets of the Royal Court along the way. In spite of political turmoil and revolution, Lubin’s intimate knowledge of fragrance allowed him to open his parfumerie in 1798, and attract the next generation of French royalty to be anointed by his work.
