A few weeks ago, I sniffed a few scents at the Le Labo counter at Barney's downtown. At that point, I had to run, but I fell for the Chicago exclusive scent, Baie Rose 26. A pretty blend of rose, pepper over musks, this scent is somehow so pleasant and deeply familiar to me - I quite like it! I've carried around the little stick of paper I sprayed it on for days now... I remember sniffing Le Labo briefly in my college days, but back then I was far too poor and a bit too weird about fragrances. Still, the prices are a bit steep for me - $220 for a 3.4 oz bottle, or $145 for 1.7 oz. There are perfume balms, a variety of travel options, and all manner of candles, shower gels, and the like. Even a collaboration with The Laundress for a handful of key scents!
I am quite set on purchasing samples from Le Labo's site (or the Discovery Set - $58 for three 5ml sprays!) I want Rose, Fleur D'Oranger, and Neroli... And then, I'm sure I'll be desperate to purchase everything I can get my hands on. I'll be happy, but my wallet sure won't be!
Have you tried Le Labo? Do you have any favorites from the brand? Do share! :)
