“Folly!”
That’s how the elderly owner of the Lubin Perfume House, Monsieur Paul Prot, described the elephant-shaped perfume bottle that had appeared on his desk. It had been designed for a princess who was believed to be Indian, and so Lubin perfumers had consulted the writings of the famous Indian poet Valmiki. In his work, Valmiki paid homage to Woman by comparing her to the animal believed to be the noblest of all — the elephant. This seemed altogether odd to a well-mannered Frenchman in the early Roaring Twenties. But as for Kismet, the Eastern princess for whom this new perfume was intended, well, she liked it.

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.
