Captains of fortune on the maritime spice road.
Like a woody liqueur rich in scorching spices, Idole de Lubin combines Makassar ebony, dried orange peels and Bourbon Rum. Its spices from Zanzibar warm up a refined leather note.

Why we're addicted: It's an extraordinary iconic and masculine scent that reminds us being on the high seas.
