Le Labo City Exclusives coming to a town near you

Le Labo City Exclusives coming to a town near you

The nine perfumes of Le Labo City Exclusives Collection are usually only available in their own cities—but you can shop them all in September.

A single bottle of perfume usually has ingredients that span the world: lavender from Provence, bergamot from Sicily, Tahitian vanilla—perfume is a world traveler. Le Labo City Exclusives collection was created to pay tribute to the centres where the brand has shops, and so each perfume is only sold in its own home city. All that changes for this month of September.

Le Labo founders Fabrice Penot and Eddie Roschi both spent time in each of the collection’s nine home cities and used the energy and vibe of those urban places to inspire the character of each respective spritz. For example, Tubereuse 40 was inspired by New York City; tuberose being a night-blooming flower and New York is, of course, the city that never sleeps.
