Le Labo is introducing Tabac 28 and Bigarade 18, the new city-exclusive fragrances for Miami and Hong Kong respectively.
Tabac 28 ~ "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar... And sometimes, it becomes a perfume! Smoky, seductive, alluring – Tabac 28 is Miami in a bottle. Deeply aromatic tobacco absolute (picture a Cuban Havana distilled) combined with opulent oud and a striking cedarwood-blend creating a smooth, smoldering, feel. Gaiac wood and rum give the fragrance an intoxicating warmth rounded with green cardamom. The whole thing is alive, vibrant, sensual - decadent even! And it brings to Wynwood another colorful graffiti…..but this one for your nostrils only."
Bigarade 18 (shown) ~ "Bigarade 18 is a paradox in a bottle. Reminiscent of an old-school classic, yet also of the modern time… Complex yet simple – you take the best bergamot and neroli petals, and mix it with the best musk and synthetic ambergris, add a drop or two of cedarwood – et voila! The result is a tension between the classical smell of citrus, and the warm transgressive hum of cedarwood’s dark notes, like a tug-of-war with no clear winner. We dedicate this perfume to Hong Kong, the fragrant bay of old and new, rich with memories of the classic sweet smells of white florals and citruses, amidst a playground of discovery and grandeur."
Le Labo Tabac 28 and Bigarade 18, along with the brand's other city-exclusives, are available worldwide every September. The rest of the year they are available only in their respective cities. They are sold in 15, 50, 100 and 500 ml.
