Lubin’s Secret Royal Scent

  • Lubin Paris Black Jade
  • Lubin Paris Black Jade bottle

During the height of the French Revolution, Queen Marie Antoinette gave her most precious perfume flask—a floral blend known as Black Jade—to her close friend, Madame de Tourzel, as a testimony of her friendship before they were violently separated.

Though the original flask remains safeguarded as a talisman in the Tourzel family’s château to this day, luxury fragrance house Lubin Paris has re-created the queen’s signature scent and unveiled it for fall. Created as an ode to Trianon gardens at Versailles, Black Jade is marked by notes of rose, jasmine, and bergamot. Its subtle touches of vanilla are enhanced by hints of incense, cinnamon, and an amber base anchored in Indian sandalwood and patchouli. Consumers can purchase Black Jade in a 50ml ($130) and a 100ml ($160) spray. (www.lubin.eu)
