Despair, comfort and sensuality
Lubin Paris, founded in 1798, is one of the most traditional houses in the world of fragrances. Despite its glorious history, it is almost completely unknown and therefore doomed to slow demise. Lubin perfumes were the first to be shipped from Paris to the United States in 1830. The name stood for elegance, class and style, but today it is hardly marketed any more and only ekes out a niche existence.

This is completely unjustified, because the few Lubin fragrances on offer today are still pearls of the perfume trade. Akkad, for example, is a straightforward, cuddly amber creation, Upper Ten projects a sovereign, unagitated, creamy spiciness. However, my star is by far an idol, which I have had for almost a year now and which so beguiles me that I have never found the right words to express my feelings about this fragrance, because he sends my feelings every time on a roller coaster.

I wear the scent on my own. A spray on my left arm, plenty for me to enjoy the drydown for hours. It is a fragrance that I would like to embrace, that satisfies my most intimate feelings in a subtle way, that comforts me and at the same time invites me to an adventure. Just to say that he makes me happy does not do justice to the complexity he triggers in me. In my world of thoughts a charismatic, almost infinitely strong woman manifests herself in Idole, with an external beauty that is perfect in her imperfection. Her dark eyes are as deep as the oceans and only the bravest can keep eye contact with her without despairing. A woman who doesn't need many words, who didn't break up from the intense, sometimes traumatic experiences she had to have in her life, but grew from them - and she grew up and still grows. She stands above things and does not want to be conquered because she simply does not need it. She likes long walks in the most beautiful places in the world, but one will be careful not to take her by the hand. She alone shows the way. She dislikes affairs, she has no time for banalities, and even the courageous conqueror who dares to kidnap her into the night will break her strength and say goodbye humbly. She is, exactly, an idol of our time, a martyr, a muse. Desirable and unattainable.

Back to the perfume: The start is spicy, almost medicinal with a strong rum note. The scent announces itself loudly, and is so tipsy that some say goodbye with a headache. Do not wash it off, but let yourself be seduced by the further course. I smell the noblest spice, saffron, and a light leather note joins the round. The orange, bitter and by no means sweet, accompanies the fragrance throughout its course. The incense now also cries out for attention and after a while, finally, the gentle Amber knocks on the door, who now wants to take the lead. After one hour, the components sit in perfect harmony at a table made of exquisite woods. The strong rum now gives way to a noble drop, the spices fill the room with sensual aromas, the bitter orange shines in its most beautiful colour and the leather gradually begins to retreat. What remains is a symbiosis of wood, orange, rum and sweet amber.

It is the only fragrance in my collection that I wear myself and I rarely wear it. It doesn't deserve to experience the everyday. This fragrance belongs neither in the office, nor in the trendy clubs of the city. He should bewitch precisely those people who are profound and grown-up. Those who appreciate aesthetics, who dress stylishly and do not equate passion with fast sex.

Idole is my favourite fragrance and will probably always be so.

Idole EDP
For me the house of Lubin is like a fragrant treasure trove where at every sniff, a new jewell is discovered. This one is the first thing I found in the Aladdin's cave .

A lubin masterpiece!
This truly is a masterpiece. I smell rum, orange and saffron are prominent in the opening. This then dries down incense-leathery base. It smells exactly as if Gucci Envy & Yves Rocher's Hoggar had a love child! gathering the best elements from both and blending a truly exquisite perfume. I feel this is slightly more on the masculine side. It probably deserves the £105 price tag as it is well-crafted and has decent longevity and sillage to boot. The bottle design is rather good and definitely has a place amongst a collection of creeds or bonds. 4.5/5

A Superb Spicy Fragrance With An Equally Superb Bottle...
The Eau de Parfum version of Idol de Lubin is a truly outstanding effort from the parfumier Giacobetti. The scent opens with a gorgeous semi-sweet rum accord along with a strong saffron note mixed with hints of orange. The scent quickly turns its attention to a very mild mannered, but outstanding ebony and incense heart before drying down to a sublime amber and sandalwood base with just a touch of sweetness that may be the best part of the scent. Idole de Lubin edp is not a sillage monster by any means and its longevity is average to maybe even a hair below average. What it *is,* is a stunning concoction that is entirely unisex, and would smell incredible on just about anyone. Also of note is the bottle housing the juice is one of the most artistically beautiful containers I have seen to date, and the scent inside is well deserving of it. Absolute must buy IMO, for lovers of spicy incense scents (and just about everyone else, for that matter). 4.5 stars out of 5.
