Lubin’s ‘Classique Collection’ is expressed through timeless perfumes inspired by emblematic women who perfectly embody their eras. Inspired by the Malabar Coast along the Indian Peninsula – a land where women reign supreme. The powerful Nair Princesses dreamed up a sophisticated, harmonious society where women held a central position. Legend has it that the lush forest of Kerala produced magnificent blue birds with golden collars to pay eternal homage to the princesses. Since then, at the end of every day, these fabulous birds have created a unique and melodious love song that is carried on a floral, musky breeze up to the heavens.
HOW IT WEARS
A heady oriental floral Eau de Parfum that will last up to 8 hours on the skin. Princesses de Malabar opens with a delicious fruity sweetness yet the unique blend of dry iris is absolutely there. An airy and bright fragrance that balances sweet and dry perfectly to never tip one too far. The peachy playfulness with the clean, earthy dry down is absolute heaven softening on musk and refined woody notes.
We just love the use of iris in this perfume, creating an alluring powdery throw, that would make anyone weak at the knees. Then the fruity playfulness creates an unusual fusion and a complex blend that is unique and powerful, much like the wonderful Nair Princesses.
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.
