I’ve been dreaming about Le Labo scents. Their process is beautiful, as is their passion. My current favorite is SANTAL 33, but I was recently at their store in Venice and their newest scent, THÉ NOIR 29, is magical as well.
Here is the description of SANTAL 33:
“Do you remember the old Marlboro ads? A man and his horse in front of the fire on a great plain under tall, blue evening skies - A defining image of the spirit of the American West with all it implied about masculinity and personal freedom. This man, firelight in his face, leaning on the worn leather saddle, alone with the desert wind, an icon so powerful that every man wanted to be him and every woman wanted to have him… From this memory is born SANTAL 33: a perfume that introduces our use of cardamom, iris, violet, ambrox which crackle in the formula and bring to this smoking wood alloy (Australian sandalwood, cedarwood) some spicy, leathery, musky notes, and gives this perfume its unisex signature and addictive comfort.”
Le Labo is such a wonderfully natural and luxurious brand. The company actually believes that the future of luxury is craftsmanship and I could not agree more. These scents may seem pricey, but you are paying for a high quality product rather than a brand or celebrity name. If you visit a store, you can watch them mix your scent, which is very cool.
