Pierre-François Lubin, one of the greatest perfume makers ever, was born in 1774. His life spanned one of the most turbulent times of French history. Lubin was initiated to perfumery by Tombarelli, a perfume master in Grasse. In 1790, he came to Paris to complete his training under Jean-Louis Fargeon, who was then still serving as the official perfumer to Queen Marie-Antoinette. Even during her imprisonment in the Tour du Temple, the French Queen would still receive regular supplies from her loyal perfumer. Every day she wore an eau de toilette containing citrus notes. Her favorite was the scent of roses, a fragrance Fargeon captured with great skill.
