Le Labo Heads to Montauk for Summer Residency


Founded in 2006 in New York City by Eddie Roschi and Fabrice Penot, Le Labo (French  the laboratory’) is an Estée Lauder perfume house. Le Labo produces fragrances and ambient room scents. The formulations do not include animal products, preservatives  paraben or coloration, and are not tested on animals. The fragrances are compounded at the time of purchase with the client’s name printed on the labels of the boxes and the perfume flacons.

Those looking to freshen up their scent following the restrictions put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic can now do so safely with the Le Labo on Wheels project, which just kicked off in Montauk.

Today Le Labo has announced plans for a Summer residency at the beachfront Marram Hotel in Montauk. Titled ‘Le Labo on Wheels’, the project will see the fragrance label pack up its full boutique, lab and sink into a truck and head out to the sunny coast. The pop-up accompanies the brand’s new Basil line, which is represented in the pop-up with ocean smells and personalization.

The services available from the temporary location will include compounding perfumes in the movable lab. These products will then feature a personalized label explaining that they were produced ‘in Montauk, at the end of the world’. The full Le Labo collection will also be available from the truck.

The set up at the Marram is the first edition of the ‘Le Labo on Wheels’ project. Over the coming years, Le Labo will take its temporary lab to more locations around the world. ‘Le Labo on Wheels’ at the Marram Hotel in Montauk will be open for three weeks, running from July 22 until August 12. Come into the beautiful world of Le Labo.





Le Labo Introduces the new City Exclusive Tabac 28


Perfume house Le Labo was founded in 2006 by Fabrice Penot and Edouard Roschi, and debuted with 10(!) fragrances. The number in the fragrance name indicates the number of notes in its composition, and the name of material (Jasmine, Vetiver, Labdanum) refers to the most prominent note in it.

Now the New York-based luxe perfume house aims with their City Exclusives collection, launched in 2006 with the Dallas and New York edition, to marry scents with certain places. Each one of these editions is sold exclusively in the city by which it was inspired, and for people living far away from those locations only obtainable once or twice a year, on special occasions.

Up until very recently, the City Exclusives collection counted 11 editions: Tubereuse 40 (New York), 2006; Aldehyde 44 (Dallas), 2006; Vanille 44 (Paris), 2007; Gaiac 10 (Tokyo), 2008; Poivre 23 (London), 2008; Musc 25 (Los Angeles), 2008; Baie Rose 26 (Chicago), 2011; Benjoin 19 (Moscow), 2013; Cuir 28 (Dubaï), 2013; Limette 37 (San Francisco), 2013, and the 2017 edition Mousse de Chene 30 (Amsterdam).

This year, the collection is expanded with the 12th edition: Tabac 28, dedicated to the city of Miami. Tabac 28 is a smoky tobacco perfume featuring rich notes of tobacco leaves, rum, cedarwood, and green cardamom, with an obvious wink at the city’s connection with cigars and rum. The whole thing is alive, vibrant, sensual, opulent, decadent even!


“Smoky, seductive, alluring – Tabac 28 is Miami in a bottle”, says the perfume house about their latest opus.

Le Labo City Exclusive Tabac 28 comes in the same flacon as the previous editions, containing 100 ml Eau de Parfum, and is only available in Le Labo’s stores in Miami. Come into the beautiful world of Le Labo.
