LUBIN | Magda
Magda is the muse of young poets. On Tuesday evenings, she sometimes sits around Mallarmé’s small round table on rue de Rome. Craving perfection, uncompromising and curious, she fills the small living room with her exotic presence. Her voice fuels her words and her sensual aroma enchants the circle of poets. Yet soon, Magda will leave to return to her land brimming with flowers and fruit. There, in her garden of wild tuberoses, she will bring life to the words of a new book.

ABOUT THE BRAND
Born in 1774, Pierre-Francois Lubin lived in a period thought to be the most eventful in France’s history. He began his career as a perfume apprentice at the age of 10 to the famous Jean-Louis Fargeon in 1784. During this time under Fargeon’s tutelage, Lubin came to be entrusted with the beauty recipes of the French Royal Court. Fargeon came from a dynasty of expert perfumers and was Marie Antoinette’s official fragrance supplier. Renowned as the 'holder of the secrets of beauty of the old court of France' and thanks to his illustrious patronage, Lubin became the favourite perfumer of many European Courts. In 1821, he became the appointed official supplier of the King of England George IV. Then, in 1823, he became perfumer to the great Tsar of Russia Alexander I.
