Idole Eau de Parfum

Idole de Lubin offers a spellbinding glimpse into the fantasy world created by talented perfumer Olivia Giacobetti. Inspired by voyages from Madagascar to Java, from Zanzibar to the Spice Islands, it is a smoldering composition conveying the exhilarating sense of discovery and the intoxicating beauty of the tropics. The fragrance unfolds as a series of vignettes, from the monsoon drenched jungle to the smoky incense of a sacrificial offering. The complex woody base of ebony, mahogany, red sandalwood and doum palm supports the opulent heart of saffton and leather. Bitter orange peel and rum absolute lend an effervescent element to this striking fragrance.

A voyager and discoverer at heart, Lubin was the first perfume maker to conquer the New World in 1830. His effervescent Eau Vivifiante (later called Eau de Lubin) was coveted the world over, from Paris to Moscow, from Jaipur to New York.
Gilles Thévenin, along with two of Paul Prot’s sons, decided to take over the brand’s destiny. Former Lubin perfumers of the 1950s and 60s joined in to help revive the House of Lubin’s unmatched olfactory style and provide the missing details to forgotten formulas. This allowed the company to renew and revive Nuit de Longchamp and Gin Fizz, among others. The House of Lubin has now regained the glory of former days. It continues to uphold its founder’s ideals, creating perfumes of the highest quality that will enchant generations to come.
The 21st century has brought the House of Lubin into its renaissance. The intricate and complex blends evoke the splendor of the royal courts perfumed by Pierre Francois in the 18th and 19th centuries, while the exotic touches allude to the founder’s fascination with far away lands and exciting discoveries. It continues to leave its mark on perfume history!
