The Strength of Willpower - The Scent of Success

America was still very sparsely populated in the 19th century, when immigrants arrived in droves from other continents – all fleeing an «Old Country» where an individual’s destiny was a mere accident of birth, rather than the result of talent and hard work.

This youthful, freedom-loving populace dreamed of a better future and within a century had founded the first nation born of the sheer will of the people. On this land without memory emerged the United States of America – a country turned constantly towards the new. A new aristocracy gradually arose from among this multitude of striving people, an elite of visionary and ambitious men.

Like millions of others, those 10,000 men left their homeland one day with no hope of ever returning – but they had a bolder streak, and their dreams were on a grander scale. People called them the «Upper Ten», a phrase coined by American poet Nathaniel Willis to designate «the ten thousand that matter»: the pioneers of America’s industrial century whose energy laid the groundwork for US supremacy.

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.
