Kismet Eau de Parfum
The ravishing Ottoman spy laughed when she saw the small crystal bottle that had been created for her. It featured an embellished elephant, alluding to the verse of Valmiki’s Ramayana, because they believed her to be an Indian princess. Seductive and multilingual, Kismet encouraged the mystery surrounding her origins. She reigned supreme over the Paris soirées of the Roaring Twenties for a time, then one day slipped away, never to be seen again. All that remained was the memory of her perfume.
Why we're addicted: An intoxicating, enigmatic scent wrapped in mystery.

The creations of the young perfumer were an immediate success with the aristocracy, including Napoleon's wife, Empress Josephine, and the chicest and fashion-forward trendsetters in Europe. In the early 20th century Lubin Parfums migrated to New York, and became known for such iconic fragrances as "Nuit de Longchamps" and "Gin Fizz", which was created for Grace Kelly in 1955.
In 1998 Gilles Thevenin revived this exquisite, legendary Perfume House- over 200 years old and truly one of France's oldest luxury brands. Collaborating with the former owners and perfumers who reorchestrated their formulas, Gilles opened a new page in the history of Lubin. Today the brand is based in the heart of Paris, continuing the tradition of using the finest ingredients and working with the most talented Master Perfumers, and continually inspired by dynamic women and heroic men who perfectly embody their eras.
