Lubin’s ‘Classique Collection’ is expressed through timeless perfumes inspired by emblematic women who perfectly embody their eras. Gin Fizz is a fresh and effervescent cocktail of the 1950’s. Inspired by the incomparable elegance of Grace Kelly. The movie star in the 1950’s who captivated the world. Her mysterious charm even captured the heart of a Prince! It was in honour of her extraordinary beauty that Lubin created a perfume which marked the decade: a very chic perfume, sparkling and fresh, evoking the cocktail – the Gin Fizz in fashion that year (1955) in Paris. The iconic Lubin bottles were originally also an ode to Grace Kelly as she arrived in Monaco and stepped off the plane to be welcomed by the paparazzi, her giant hat covering her beautiful face. Only the silhouette of her hat and body could be seen and thus how the elegant and iconic Lubin bottle came to be.

HOW IT WEARS
Gin Fizz is an Eau De Toilette which should give anywhere from 6 – 7 hours worth of longevity. It’s plethora of citrus fruits and florals unfolding like the delicious cocktail it’s named after. Light and effervescent, it’s oh so subtle sweetness and fresh, zesty, clean make this a delicately feminine and uplifting scent that wears like a gentle aura on the skin. The soft florals complement the citrus notes as the fragrance dries down. An incredibly clean and elegant fragrance that need to try too hard, it is simple sophistication.
Bright, fizzy bubbles of good, clean fun and frivolity all served up with a twist of old time romance. We love how this concoction of celebratory perfection captures the essence of 1950’s screen goddess Grace Kelly, who not only captivated the silver screen, but also the heart of a European Prince. A charming and classic beauty, Gin Fizz is both deliciously festive and full of femininity.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Born in 1774, Pierre-Francois Lubin lived in a period thought to be the most eventful in France’s history. He began his career as a perfume apprentice at the age of 10 to the famous Jean-Louis Fargeon in 1784. During this time under Fargeon’s tutelage, Lubin came to be entrusted with the beauty recipes of the French Royal Court. Fargeon came from a dynasty of expert perfumers and was Marie Antoinette’s official fragrance supplier. Renowned as the ‘holder of the secrets of beauty of the old court of France’ and thanks to his illustrious patronage, Lubin became the favourite perfumer of many European Courts. In 1821, he became the appointed official supplier of the King of England George IV. Then, in 1823 perfumer to the great Tsar of Russia Alexander I.
