What is Le Labo And Why Is It So Popular?
Fun fact: Le Labo means "the lab" in French. It's a fragrance brand that stands out for its handcrafted, high-quality scents and unique approach to perfumery. Founded in 2006 by two friends in New York City, it quickly gained a cult following for its fresh take on fragrances.
Each Le Labo perfume is made natural ingredients and blended by hand right *in front* of the customer! This makes each bottle feel special and exclusive.
