Le Labo City Exclusives have arrived
Perhaps it was the scent of leather and vetiver in Dubai, or vanilla and bergamot in Paris. You found a fragrance that captured the moment and embodied the city, imprinting on your memory like an olfactive postcard.
Le Labo created its City Exclusives collection to celebrate some of the perfumer’s most loved cities. Each fragrance captures the spirit of its home—and is only available for purchase there. That’s right. No online or phone orders, no international shipping, no clandestine shipments. If you want Poivre 23, you best book a flight to London. That is, until now.
Once a year, Le Labo allows the city exclusives to travel—a fragrance caravan of sorts. For the month of September, you’ll find all 11 city scents at Le Labo’s downtown location and Forty Five Ten. Among the most coveted: Mousse De Chene 30, a mossy patchouli tribute to Amsterdam; the clean-yet-addictive woody Gaiac 10 hailing from Tokyo; and Benjoin 19, which smells exactly how you imagine Moscow would.
The Details: Forty Five Ten, 1615 Main Street. Stop by September 13 from 2–5 p.m. for cocktails and bites inspired by the City Exclusives perfumes. Also available at Le Labo, 1604 Main Street.
