Lubin Korrigan Sample
Korrigan is less harmless than it looks. this caramel wood is no perfume from childhood; it is a scent of intimacy, insidiously musky and irresistible on the skin of a desired being.
It is the fragrance of the senses set free, to be shared or saved for intimate moments, when caresses follow on sweet whispers and bodies draw closer. It is an invitation to voluptuousness, to sensuous pleasures, and to fantasies of the most extravagant kind.
Perfumer Thomas Fontaine first of all imagined a tree for Lubin, to be called "Caramel Wood".
Its sap would be sweet like english toffee, but with tangy accents of wild apple, juniper and saffron, to answer for some of its mystery. He wanted a note of leather yet appetising, smooth like a whisky cream liqueur, yet smoky, fragrant and slightly bitter like superb pure malt.

In the Armorican countryside the Korrigans frolic at night. They come to harvest juniper berries and wild beechnuts. Then, in dark caves, they distil barley into spellbinding spirits, spicing them with saffron, musking them with ambrette, scenting them with lavender. During the solstice festivals, they all drink their elixirs out of leather pouches, causing bodies and souls to capsize.
A Korrigan is a small mythical creature that haunts the moors of Brittany, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, whisking us away to the folklore and legends of Celtic civilization. Innocent of writing, its legendary tales were handed down from the mists of time through the wisdom, memory and eloquence of the bards.
Korrigans are not very pretty, and are known to play the odd nasty trick. But they also know recipes for elixirs offered as libation at Beltane and Samhain, festivals to celebrate the change of seasons. An occasion of course to evoke the strong beverages of the somewhat bleak moors. Whisky is one of them, in the form of a smooth, fragrant cream liqueur, accentuate by a counterpoint of oudh accord, which brings to mind dark caves where secrets lie hidden. “Korrigan” is therefore a fragrance to accompany Dionysian rites. Drunkenness befuddles the spirits and sets the deepest impulses free. It is a fragrance of pleasure and of Epicureanism, the unrestrained desire to taste the skin of the beloved.
