Le Labo has been shaking up the perfume industry for over a decade, creating fragrances using carefully chosen ingredients and pinning its focuses on craftsmanship rather than the traditional idea of ‘luxury’. Part of the brand’s unique approach is its collection of ‘City Exclusives’ that are inspired by, made for, and only sold in, certain cities around the world.
You won’t find these fragrances online or from other retailers. If you want to get your hands on Vanille 44, you’ll have to make a trip to Paris and visit a Le Labo boutique, or if you’ve heard great things about Baie Rose 26, the only place you’ll be able to buy a bottle is Chicago.
But once a year, the brand throws open its global doors and allows each City Exclusive to be sold online and in every Le Labo store around the world. Throughout September (and September only), you’ll be able to buy one of these unique scents wherever you are, including two new fragrances—Tabac 28 and Bigarade 19—that have been added to the line-up.
Tabac 28, made for Miami, takes inspiration from the city’s Cuban influence with a vibrant scent of tobacco, oud and cedarwood. As for Hong Kong’s Bigarade 19, the fragrance is a nod to the city’s past and present with woody notes that juxtapose fresh citrus.
Le Labo City Exclusives are available online and in-store at Le Labo boutiques from 1–30 September.
