150 years of longing is over: Piesse and lubin london

1864 during the Civil War blockade, a ship called the Mary Celestia sank in a severe winter storm off the coast of Bermuda, lying on the seafloor 55 meters deep, covered with sand and silt, for years.


Located in the cellar on the bow of the ship, where the cigars, wine and other prohibited products were loaded, the perfume was almost perfectly preserved until, incidentally, divers discovered and visited the wreck in 2011, nearly 150 years later.


Those days! It was like finding a buried treasure for this world of perfumes manufactured and designed by a stylish London perfumery brand.

After 150 years when the perfume bottle's stopper was first opened and on the first sniff, they encountered a disgusting smell like rotten pirate feet. For further investigation, the perfume was taken to a laboratory in the United States where it was analyzed by gas chromatography, a technique that reveals individual compounds in a mixture.


Using this information, along with historical research, work was started to redesign the original fragrance, but there was a problem! From those years to the present, the making of perfume has changed considerably over the years, and in the 1864s, Fragrance was originally designed to be applied to clothes, not directly to the skin, the content of the perfume therefore contained more dangerous solvents, and as a result, the perfume was modernized and redesigned with safer, most suitable alternatives.


First place, other notes such as grapefruit, orange blossom, rosewood, citrus fruits, musk, amber scents in the labs. gradually came to light and a new foundation was established to preserve the legacy of the shipwreck found in bermu and has survived to this day.
