Look, I’ll be the first to admit that Le Labo’s iconic Santal 33 scent smells really good. In addition to owning a bottle myself, the fragrance has become so wildly popular over the years that it’s basically a calling card for in-the-know millennials. Basically, if you know, you know. But the Brooklyn-based perfume brand has so much more to offer in the way of its oil-based unisex scents beyond just its best seller, and I’m here to walk you through where to even begin.
It’s easy to see why the brand has become so popular. Each of the fragrances is layered with an intoxicating medley of notes, and since they’re oil based, one spritz can last you all day. I know they can be pricey, but in my opinion, the cost per wear makes it well worth the spend. For my own fragrance mission (and yours too), I asked Le Labo to send me samples of its best-selling scents, and the brand kindly shared its Discovery Kit filled with 17 sample-size spritzes. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been switching up my scent on a daily basis, mostly because I like putting on perfume even if I don’t leave the house just to feel something, but also because I wanted to give you my honest reviews of the best Le Labo perfumes.
