"Folly!" That’s how the elderly owner of the Lubin Perfume House, Monsieur Paul Prot, described the elephant-shaped perfume bottle that had appeared on his desk. It had been designed for a princess. Spiritual and multilingual, Kismet cultivated the mystery surrounding her background. She reigned over the Parisian parties of the Roaring Twenties for a time, then one day slipped away, never to be seen again. All that remained was the memory of the scent that Lubin had created for her.
And what a scent it is- lush and heady, sweet and intoxicating, wedding the vivacious freshness of bergamot, lemon and nose-tingling petitgrain to a velvety menagerie of exquisite types of rose, all set against smooth, creamy vanilla and sumptuously sensual patchouli and myrrh. Like the now faded-to-legend princess, this Kismet is at once seductive and delightful, exotic and familiar, and altogether ravishing. Another touch of vintage elegance from the house of Lubin.
