Le Labo will launch Baie Rose 26, the new city-exclusive fragrance for Chicago, this month.
For many people, Chicago still evokes the Prohibition-era, the decadence of the speakeasies filled with gangsters and pretty ladies, enjoying jazz music, smoking and sipping martinis until dawn. With that in mind, we decided to focus on the uplifting rhythm of jazz...
There is a direct correlation between the sharp pimento berries and some of the more upbeat sounds of jazz, the soft back representing the simpler, soothing side of the music. Either way, the uplifting effect of the music seems to carry you away, the same way the music of the spices, aldehyde and musk playing with the pimento berries, brings your spirit away.
Baie Rose 26 was developed by perfumer Frank Voekl; the notes include pimento berries, ambrox, clove, pepper, rose, musk, cedar and aldehyde.
Le Labo Baie Rose 26 will be available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum (I am checking to see if there is a 50 ml as well). It will be exclusive to the Le Labo counter at Barneys in Chicago. (via lelabo)
Update: Baie Rose 26 is named for the pink pepper note, although the fragrance also contains pimento berries (allspice).
