The Perfume Bundle includes Magazine B’s three issues about the scents we wear, where they’re made, and how to make sense of it all.
Le Labo was established in 2006 by French co-founders Eddie Roschi and Fabrice Penot in Nolita, New York City. As much as the name suggests, Le Labo, which means “the laboratory” in French, is a cult perfume brand that takes its inspiration from the various goings-on of a perfumer’s lab. They pay special attention to the experience surrounding their perfumes, hand-blending and bottling each perfume in- store, labeling each with a created date and location, and allowing the customers to inscribe names or personal messages on the labels. Le Labo’s fragrances have staked out a unique presence in the industry, with charmingly distinct scents like Santal 33 and Rose 31 testifying to the brand’s deep appreciation of base ingredients.
Diptyque is a French fragrance brand founded in 1961 by three artists—Yves Coueslant, Desmond Knox-Leet, and Christiane Gautrot. Both its fragrances and its designs are original and evocative, making Diptyque one of the most recognizable brands straddling the niche and luxury markets.
Chanel, a global luxury goods company, was founded in France by Gabrielle Chanel at the beginning of the last century. The brand offers a broad range of luxury products encompassing ready-to-wear clothing, leather goods, accessories, eyewear, fragrances, cosmetics, skincare, fine jewelry, and watches with a network of 198 Chanel fashion boutiques worldwide including the legendary 31 rue Cambon address in Paris. Chanel is also renowned for its haute couture presented in Paris. Under the creative direction of Art Director Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel is dedicated more than ever to ultimate luxury, quality, and exceptional savoir faire.
