Those who know Le Labo – New York-based luxury artisanal perfume brand – would have already known that its City Exclusives are usually only available in the city they belong to and nowhere else. This means no online or phone orders; no exceptions. But once a year, and once a year only, the entire City Exclusives leave their hometowns to visit other Le Labo boutiques for what is called the City Exclusive Event.
This year, there are 14 City Exclusives, comprising the brand spanking new Citron 28. Capturing the modern vibe that of Seoul, the fragrance is structured with lemon, ginger and jasmine. The scent is rounded up with intoxicating woody notes of cedar and musk, rooting originality and conservatism in equal part. Other cities spotlighted include Dallas, Chicago, Moscow, Hong Kong, Dubai, Tokyo, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, London, Miami, New York and Paris.
Scratching your head deciding on your favourite city? Opt for a 1.5ml Discovery Sample (RM50) or compose your own Set of 5 samples (RM245). Once you’re done with the olfactory exploration and decided on the one that connects with you the most, you can find the 15ml (RM545), 50ml (RM1280) and 100ml (RM1980) from the 1st to 30th of September at 150, First Floor, Suria KLCC Mall, 50088, Kuala Lumpur.
