New York-based niche perfume house Le Labo continues to expand, and is planning to open two new boutiques this year in Los Angeles and Tokyo. They will also be opening in-store boutiques in Barneys San Francisco and Barneys Las Vegas, and they expect to be in Colette Paris this spring.
And in response to customer requests, Le Labo has reformulated Labdanum 18 (formerly Ciste 18) to replace the natural civet with a cruelty-free synthetic substitute.
The bottles now being sold are the new formula. Update: the new version of Labdanum 18 will be in stock tomorrow. If you're planning to order, you might want to call and make sure it has arrived.
