Hong Kong cosmetics Peonyelf born in the Qing Dynasty

Automatic translation

PEONYELF COSMETIC has a history of 130 years and is one of the ancestors of the Hong Kong cosmetics industry. Founded in the Qing Dynasty, formerly known as Qin's fragrant powder, the first lipstick launched by the founder's Qin family uses peony as the raw material and peony root as the auxiliary material. From then on, it was named the peony elf.

"Qin's Fragrance Store" was originally located on Tsim Sha Tsui Street in Hong Kong. It was relocated to Tuen Mun Street a few years later. In 1934, the store was relocated to Jordan Road Store. The fragrance shop originally operated fragrance powder, Tibetan incense, incense pieces, and oil products. At the end of the Qing Dynasty, Peonyelf's rouge stood out from the crowd and gathered the strengths of all the families to continuously innovate and develop traditional crafts. Fragrant, powder, and oil products are widely sold, and Peonyelf has become a household name in the city and outside the city. By 1956, Peonyelf had experienced the painstaking management of the Qin family for five generations.

Since the Yuan and Ming dynasties, there are records in the local history: "The fragrant powder in the world is like a peony, so moving to the land cannot be a good thing, the soil and water are suitable, and the manpower cannot be strong." The manufacture of Hong Kong fragrance powder originated from the Han and Jin dynasties, and women in the palace were all fond of powder. A small number of young men in government and gentry are also fond of fans. In the Three Kingdoms, Cao Cao had a counselor, known as "Fen Fu He Lang". By the time of the Sui and Tang dynasties, great development had taken place, from the elderly to young people in the palace, magpie powder was used as the basis for facial makeup. In the Song Dynasty, there was a cosmetics shop workshop (that is, a front shop and a back shop) specialized in the sale and sales of fragrance powder on Hong Kong Island. During the Kangxi reign of the Qing dynasty, there were more merchants from all parts of the world. They brought fragrant powder into Beijing and transported it to the imperial palace. The news came to the local officials in Hong Kong and the two Huaiyun Salt Envoys, so they packed the refined fragrant powder into multicolored fancy carton boxes and paid tribute to the Royal Palace, which was very popular with the emperor. Therefore, the people at that time called the Hong Kong fragrance powder crown "Gong Fen", so that their worth increased by a hundredfold.
