Princesses de Malabar Eau de Parfum
The name is a nod to the West Indies legend of the “Princesses of Malabar”, hinting at the story of a mythical kingdom of the “Malabar coast,” which included the famous Kerala forest. There, a peaceful and refined civilization developed for centuries under the gracious gaze of the “Nair” reigning queens. They would thereafter be referred to as “Princesses of Malabar” and champion women’s political leadership in the eyes of 18th century philosophers.
Why we're addicted: This is a compelling and modern feminine perfume, a vibrantly original scent, long-lasting and easy to wear.
Cotton Flower, Bergamot, Peach Flesh, White Magnolia, Arabian Jasmine, Nosy Be Ylang-Ylang, White Musk, Iris Powder, Sandalwood, Sweet Amber, Tonka Bean
A soft, musky floral fragrance based on Orris essence, it is reminiscent of the great classics of French perfumery in the Roaring Twenties. A delicious gourmand nuance brings a modern twist, further enhanced by effervescent aldehyde head notes. The heart of the composition features a voluptuous fruity and flowery trio, an addictive melange of peach, jasmine and magnolia.
The base ring of the cap is golden, and the top is a mixture of pink and orange shades, an homage to precious coral from the shores of the Malabar coast and the vivid colors of the Kerala forest tropical flowers.

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.
