Lavender? Perhaps you conjured up an image of your grandmother’s wall-papered bathroom, with a bar of purple soap sitting next to the sink. Or an old-fashioned barbershop, with whiffs of lavender mixed with oak-moss floating in the air.
In true Le Labo form, LAVANDE 31 knocks all preconceived notions of lavender on its head. Its bergamote and neroli essential oils give it a fresh lift-off to reveal a lavender of the greatest purity, where only the flower buds are distilled, giving the creation verticality and richness.
Its foundation is pure Le Labo: ambery, dirty, and musky notes, blended with notes of tonka to give this perfume a regressive classic style that is both clean and dirty, recognizable yet truly unique. Nope, this isn’t the lavender you thought you knew. Welcome to a new reality.
