Breaking News: Tubereuse 40, New Scent by Le Labo

Le Labo, New York based fragrance brand that opened its first store in March and which offers freshly hand made scents developed by some of the world’s most renowned noses, has just launched a New York exclusive scent called Tubereuse 40. Developed in partnership with Alberto Morillas, it is a non-heady Tubereuse shaped around citruses and musks that give it an unexpected unisex “eau de cologne” identity despite its impressive 30% dosage of oil in alcohol. As in all Le Labo’s fragrance names, the number to the right of the natural ingredient indicates the number of ingredients used in the perfume’s formula. The price is $230.00 for a 50ml and $360.00 USD for a 100ml. (From Le Labo press release)

Hi Colombina! Sorry I've been so lax in my visits lately. I've cut way back on my blogging time.

anyway, this scent sounds like something I would try. I love Creed TI but don't like so many of the really heavy, cloying tuberose scents like MPG Tuberose. This one sounds promising. Its so easy to knock someone over with tuberose....I find its a easy scent to overdo.

Sounds as if indolic isn't the issue here, my friend-
But the price sure is !

Barney's in Boston has decided not to carry the scent earmarked for them [ it was supposed to be the Iris !]...
I'd best steer clear of these, for the sake of solvency...

So lovely to see you here! I am very curious about the new scent simply because I canot wrap my midn aroubd Tuberose As Eau De Cologne. Very intriguing.

So how come Boston's Barney doesn't like Iris? :-0

The sounds interesting, but the cost is woy out of line for even lemming me.

Barney's Beverly Hills was pretty lip-locked on whether they were going to have Le Labo at all- apparently they would have to find room for them: they intimated that LL would require a standalone display like Malle has in the store. They sais that the only sure bet to carry it was NYC. Which makes total sense, right? I mean, god forbid some of those Madison Avenue types take a cab down to NoLiTa. They might get rabies or something....

Heh. Well, I understand Le Labo's desire to branch out into nice big stores, but what I think they should do is to make ordering from their website much, much easire. I mean what's that about having to write an email or call? Can't they have a normal shopping cart thing there.

Tuberose as eau de cologne. Ummm...why? Why do that to tuberose? And why would I pay top dollar for that? The novelty? I'm not into gambling, but if I were, I'd be trying to find someone right now who would be willing to take me up on a bet for a seriously substantial amount that I will *not* like this - well, at least not for that price.

That's what I kind of thought too. Cologne-ish scent for that price? Now, if they promised The Tuberosiest of All Tuberoses or The One Where We Out-Tuberose Carnal Flower, I'd understand that. But we'll see, Le Labo is the kind of a line that might just suprise us.

LMAO at The Tuberosiest of All Tuberoses and The One Where We Out-Tuberose Carnal Flower. Brilliant! Those I would buy in a second! :-) You need to suggest those to Maurice or Chris S.

I am sure Maurice can outtuberose Ropion if he puts his mind to it :-) Chris has paid his dues with Tubereuse Criminille...if that is in fact his it?

Blogger elle said...

Yes, it is one of his. But he did the Bois series...why not a tuberose series? :-)

...because, like me, he knows that there is no such thing as too much Bois, but there is such thing as Tuberose fatigue :-)
