Lubin Jardin Rouge - Fragrance Review



In 2018 Lubin continued to expand the evocations line with two more fragrances, Jardin Rouge and Mandarino. Judging by Jardin Rouge, the brand continues the narrative of minimalism, focusing on the excellence of materials and the theme of olfactory exploration of landscapes, green and open places in a coherent way. It is a one of the lines from the brand that  if not focused on the Asian market has many characteristics that could easily please this audience.

The inspiration this time at Jardin Rouge is in Boston's gardens. By the description of the brand, these gardens are known for their raspberries and holly and for being dominated in spring by the aroma of magnolias, which turn the red aspect of such gardens into a white color. The idea to be captured here is precisely that of a green and fresh environment that at first is dominated by red aromas and then transitions to a spring white floral.

Despite the red and fruity aspect of the Jardin Rouge outlet, it does not seem to me to be a very strong perfume on the fruity side. The aroma of raspberries tends more towards a green side, as if they are still ripening, and the presence of pink pepper instead of sweetening gives it a dry fruity aura on the opening. The perfume makes the transition to a light, fresh and citrusy floral and then ends with a delicate base where musks predominate and there is only a light touch of wood and moss that is very difficult to perceive.

The same criticism that was made in Attique could be applied here: although the collection focuses on the excellence of natural materials the perfume itself depends on the excellence of the synthetics it uses. The minimalist character of the collection ends up impacting the performance, with perfumes that unfortunately after 3 hours on the skin became a whisper. But for those looking for non-invasive perfumes, the delicacy and charm of what is delivered here can be interesting to this audience.
