Thank you for sharing, Merbert!
Due to living in a building constructed in the 1860s, that particular decade bears special interest to me. I was not aware of Lubin's history until reading your post and following up with NowSmellThis's brief bio. When I daydream about the teachers who taught in our schoolhouse, I have to wonder what perfumes were the first to waft through these rooms. I thought that if I ever were to don costume and act as docent, I'd wear a Hové perfume because they smell old to me.
