Le Labo Take Me Away….

Nearly everyone has experienced a moment when a faint fragrance brings a memory of a long-lost moment in time- like a wave crashing into the shore.
Often we will have forgotten about the event completely, yet it transpires our minds- bringing back the file that was placed in the long, lost corner of your brain.
It may be the perfume worn by a long-forgotten friend (or lover), the smell of cookies from a youth spent baking with your mother, or the haze of chlorine from summer months laying by the pool.
It is amazing that a few simple airborne molecules can trigger such vivid recollections.
I get that feeling whenever I smell Santal 26 from Le Labo.  It can bring me back to an exact day- an exact moment- that was a significance to where I am now in my life.  It’s the smell of change, opportunity, and following your heart. It is a smell that I will always cherish, and always keep near my heart.  When moving to Italy, one of my best friends gave me a going away gift- my very own Santal 26 candle- so I could keep the feeling alive in my new adventure in Italy.
Along with their candles- they also have some of the best and unique perfumes I have ever smelled.  I love their esthetic and what they represent- “In a world where luxury perfumes are mass-produced and sold in places that look like supermarkets, where advertising campaigns try to fool consumers into thinking they are unique even though their “one of it’s kind” fragrances are worn by millions across the globe, we believe there is another solution.” -Le Labo
Each perfume is hand made- upon order, in it’s lab.  You can even personalize your label- to make it truly and uniquely yours.  May I suggest you check them out- they are available worldwide- and they even have a great sampling system so that you can try a few of the amazing scents before you commit to the big bottle.  It’s a favorite and love of mine, and I hope you can enjoy this new discovery!
