Legends tell of the mythical Princesses of the Malabar coast of western India, wise women who ruled their kingdom with wisdom and equanimity; in the 18th century, their tale became a shorthand for gracious, fair, female leadership. Now, in a time where that quality is disappointingly ephemeral, Lubin delivers a fragrance meant to inspire and enchant a new generation of empowered women. Bursting with fruity-floral energy that floats into a gorgeously weightless cloud of powdery musk, Princesses of Malabar is a bridge between past and present, a thoroughly modern and delightful feminine scent with an undeniable link to the glamorous perfumes of centuries past.
Princesses of Malabar opens with the dynamic sparkle of aldehydes and citrus, a bathing light that cleanses palette and soul to make way for the rich but never-heavy fruity floral base- a juicy spritz of peach, the sumptuous lushness of magnolia, the sexy-sweet combination of jasmine and ylang. It’s every bit as fun and youthful as the latest mass market blockbuster, only a thousand times more sophisticated. The contrast is only heightened in the vintage-inspired base, which deploys the powdery strength of iris atop a pillow-soft confection of amber, musk, and tonka, flirting with the mouthwatering appeal of a gourmand while never tipping into over-sugared dessert territory. It’s a sublime formula, as fun as it is formal, as sweet as it is smooth, as fresh as it is fancy- a 21st century feminine scent for the young at heart and old souls alike. We could all use a bit of royal inspiration in these trying times, and Princesses de Malabar seems destined to become a new classic.
