Le Labo is introducing two new fragrances as part of their Classic Collection, Lys 41 and Ylang 49, and a new San Francisco city exclusive, Limette 37. Lys 41 was created by Daphné Bugey, the same perfumer who worked on Neroli 36, Bergamote 22, and Rose 31 for Le Labo. Lys 41 features notes of lily, jasmine, tuberose absolute, woods, vanilla, tiare, “sunny notes”, and musk.
Ylang 49 is classified as a floral chypre. Its author is Frank Voekl, who worked previously on Baie Rose 26, Santal 33, Iris 39, and Musc 25. It lists notes of ylang-ylang, gardenia, patchouli, oakmoss, vetiver, benzoin, and sandalwood.
Both fragrances will be available at Le Labo stores, counters and directly at their website starting of June 2013. 50ml/$145; 100ml/$220, other sizes and body products are also offered.
Another new launch from Le Labo is Limette 37, a San Francisco city exclusive. It will be sold at the San Francisco Le Labo counters.
“Don’t expect Le Labo’s San Francisco exclusive to be a chilly summer fog essence or the Golden Gate in a bottle.
Limette 37’s reference to The City is abstract and delves into its olfactive construction that mimics the hilly ride from Le Labo’s Fillmore street store to the bay… Limette 37 is an olfactive roller coaster, mingling an impression of cleanliness, freshness and well-being with that definite feeling that you are smelling special.”
Limette 37 includes notes of bergamot, jasmine, petitgrain, clove, vetiver, tonka bean, and musks.
