A Royal Fragrance: Black Jade

A Royal Fragrance: Black Jade
2012/11/09 Better Blueprint

  • Pierre Francois Lubin became the apprentice of Tombarelli, a master perfumer of Grasse, in the south of France
  • He completed his apprenticeship under Fargeon, perfumer to the Royal Court
  • Jean Louis Fargeon created a special fragrance for Marie Antoinette which she carried in a small flask of black jade everywhere she went
  • Once the house of Lubin was established in 1798, the fragrance was resuscitated....soft, feminine fragrances of rose and jasmine and exotic tones of patchouli, cinnamon, sandalwood and vanilla ~ the combination of the initially cool scents become warm, elegant and sensual
  • I scooped it ~ and am now desperate to think about how I'm going to get more.....!!
