Nostalgia is a form of time travel for the emotions, and scent can be the most powerful way to trigger it. For Laboratory Perfumes, a whiff of pipe tobacco can be enough to unleash a fond flood of childhood memories into the hippocampus. So, when it came to determining the base for our fifth fragrance, we chose something very personal – that earthily aromatic tobacco note.
Our second scent owes its existence to a gorse-lined driveway in Provence. Captivated by the coconut-infused air surrounding the yellow flowers of the gorse bushes, we set about creating a scent that captured the essence of summer in the countryside.
The fragrances we create at Laboratory Perfumes often start with a single aroma. In Samphire’s case, it was a young leaf of verbena plucked from a friend’s garden on a spring afternoon. The scent was so arrestingly fresh, we decided to find a way to capture its zesty rush for our third fragrance.
Exotic and indulgent Tonka – the fourth fragrance from Laboratory Perfumes. Tonka’s story begins in a jar of pink peppercorns. Rummaging in the spice cupboard, we discovered that beneath their peppery notes, the dried berries of the Peruvian pepper tree have a finely balanced floral fruitiness to their aroma – which we believed would work wonderfully for our fourth fragrance.
This warm, earthy fragrance combines layers of wood and ambergris, with grassy, spicy top notes, to surround the wearer in a balmy haze. Incredibly long lasting, Amber lingers on the skin for hours after first spritz, mellowing to a subtle, sexy base that positively smoulders. Amber is a rich and inviting expression of balance and complexity.
