Grisette Eau de Parfum

SKU: 29022

Grisette - a sensitive soul from the Paris Belle Epoque. The very essence of freedom and desire to live life to the full, encapsulating natural vitality.
Familiar figures in the streets of the 19th century Paris, the grisettes were the youthful, fresh-faced girls who worked in the capital's sewing workshops. They were full of joie de vivre and wore grey calico frocks, hence their nickname.
Notes:
Top: Citrus, Grapefruit, Bergamot, Rose Concrete.
Middle: Iris concrete and incense.
Base: Musk, Amber, Cedar wood, Madagascan vanilla absolute.

It is a classical composition with top notes of an armful of freshly cut roses. For the first time for decades, Lubin is using an alcolate obtained by macerating rose concrete. This preserves the most volatile notes that mingle with hints of grapefruit to give a green sensation of fresh roses. Grisette then wraps one up in powdery, woody, and spicy notes before leaving a trail of amber and vanilla.

Sensitive souls, they’d often fall in love. Flirtatious, they knew how to turn the heads of both young aristocratic dandies and ribald old men. The grisettes of the Belle Epoque ignored the moral constraints of the century, bringing a risqué charm to the formidable effervescence of an emerging new era.

Grisette: She slips through the crowded streets on nimble feet with her head held high, a slim, fleeting figure that is the very image of Bohemian Paris. With her rosy cheeks and innocent gaze, she is hurrying to meet her lover, but Grisette is already thinking of another, dreaming wistfully of a new romance. Their first kiss beneath that awning sealed a promise truer than any other vow. Citrus notes of grapefruit and bergamot give way to a simple bouquet of Moroccan and Bulgarian roses. Discreet heart notes of orris oil are cloaked in incense and hints of cedar wood with touches of musk and amber melt into the scent of Madagascan vanilla absolute.

Gilles Thevenin who, with the support of the former owners and perfumers who reorchestrated their old formulas, rescued this historical house and opened a new page in its history in 1998. The brand is now based in the middle of Paris, at the heart of the city’s perfumers’ district dating back to the 17th century, the House of Lubin, established in 1798, is one of France’s oldest luxury brands... The original founder the Lubin house and the great perfumer of his time, Pierre-Francois Lubin was born in 1774. He learned perfumery from the age of ten in Grasse, and at the age of sixteen Lubin left Grasse for Paris to complete his training under Jean-Lous Fargeon, the official perfumer to Queen Marie-Antoinette.

In 1798, Lubin opened his boutique "Au Bouquet de Roses," which he named in honor of Marie-Antoinette's favorite flowers and perfume.The creations of the young perfumer were very well-accepted by the fashionable public. During the reign of the last king of France, Lubin finally obtained the title of Official Perfumer to the French Royal Court.
