Mandarino, Eau de Perfume
|TOP : bergamot, mandarin, orange | MIDDLE : arabian jasmine, kumquat, freesia | BASE : sandalwood, nutmeg, white musk
Alongside a field of jasmine, some children have set up a stall selling lemonade. Their “Mandarino” is made from the juice of a handful of slightly bitter kumquats, and a few sweet mandarins, mixed with some cool orangeade. Their laughter is carried on a fresh and carefree summer breeze.
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.
