Le Labo, Santal 33 Eau de Parfum

Le Labo Fragrance - Valentine's Gift for Him

©Le Labo

This heady unisex scent works just as well as a Valentine’s gift for her as it does for him, despite having been inspired by possibly the most masculine figure in American advertising history — The Marlborough Man. Le Labo took the elements of this icon and interpreted it into Santal 33: responsibly sourced cardamon, iris and violet mingle with smokey sandalwood and cedarwood. The result is an addictive aroma with notes of spice, musk and leather. Once you purchase your perfume, the New York-based cruelty-free brand will hand-blend your bottle, before printing its unique label featuring your loved one’s name.
