Time Out 說
Le Labo perfume is a cult favourite. It's woody aromatic fragrance, Santal 33, attracts both sexes with celebrities like Ryan Reynolds, Alexa Chung, and Justin Bieber as its regular patrons. Born in Grasse and established in New York, Le Labo, opened their first store in Hong Kong in 2014 and now has several branches in the city. In 2019 they launched Hong Kong's very own city exclusive scent called Bigarade 18 – inspired by the fragrant lily and citrus tree found in the hallways of Repulse Bay Hotel in the 80s, where the brand's founder, Eddie Roschi, lived as a child. Drop by the store and choose from any of their unisex scents and watch their store specialists create the perfume in front of you. Each bottle of perfume you buy from their store carries their signature minimal typewriter-font label which you can personalise to add your name or any message if you are buying the perfume as a gift. Our personal favourite is their Rose 31, a floral, woody, and musky scent that lasts all day and lingers even after you shower.
