And then you need something else… Posted by Robin on 16 August 2007 15 Comments YOU can go through life for only so long smelling like a dessert topping. — Mike Albo of the New York Times visits Le Labo looking for some sophistication. Read the rest here.
Send that man a bottle of EL Pleasures Delight.
LOL — perfect!
Patchouli 24 has an “airy quality”? But as the author called Bergamote 22 fruity instead of earthy, maybe he also meant that Patch was robust, not airy
Looking for something I could agree more with. There isn't.
It just came to me.
Robin, have you been to the Le Labo shop?
I have not! I usually go to NY for perfume shopping several times a year, but for a bunch of disconnected reasons, haven't been now since last Oct. I've heard the shop is great — lots of raw materials to sniff, etc.
Yep — although I don't think he was totally off-base w/ Bergamot, which is at least citrusy.
I actually have yet to try any of these fragrances, but the following was enough to make me swoon with delight: “Le Labo is one of a wave of idealistic merchants, 'antipreneuers' who want to create products that aren’t obnoxious, cut out unnecessary advertising and exist within their means. Antiglobalization talk is all over its Web site and packaging.” Any company that sets out with that sort of vision in mind is already a favorite of mine! Now, as the author notes, let's hope and pray that they actually stay true to their goals. I have been wanting to try their Iris and Labdanum fragrances forever.
I've never tried any of their creations but I adore their website (just been to see). It's so cute! I wanted to register several times for their newsletter just to see that sheet of paper come out of the typewriter again. LOL!
I have mixed feelings about their “credo”, but I adore the scents so I just ignore all that. Do try the line, they've really done a marvelous job.
I'd love to hire their web developer — it is really well done, isn't it?
I spent ages there: I clicked on everything!
