Many of you already knew this, but the Le Labo City Exclusive fragrances will be available next month at Luckyscent. In light of Saks and Nordstrom now carrying Le Labo (at least online), I had wondered how this would work. It’ll be interesting to see if in the future either of those retailers gets a crack at the City Exclusives or if the line will continue to be the exclusive domain of LuckyScent.
You can buy manufacturer’s sample sprays of them all through the rest of this month, according to the LS site, and the full bottles will be on sale as of Sept. 1 (no FB prices were listed, however). Although you can get samples of most all of these year-round at Surrender to Chance.
As always, I’m sorely tempted. To have full bottles of Vanille 44 or Tubereuse 40 would make me the happiest camper around, but my FB-commitment phobia (and my mostly empty wallet!) seem to always keep me from doing the deed. That, plus the fact that I can never begin to use up all the fragrance I already own. And I know many of you are in the same boat.
What I would spring for in a heartbeat would be body products in these scents. A thick, rich body cream scented with Vanille 44 (or Gaiac 10) would put me on cloud nine — heavenly to curl up in on a chilly fall or winter night. Likewise a nice body lotion in Tubereuse 40. And shower gels in this line? Whoa, Nelly, sign me up!
The City Exclusives aside, I’d be thrilled if my Saks or Nordstrom were to get the brand in-store, so I could at least sample everything in the regular line to my heart’s content.
Anyhoo, what are your favorite Le Labo fragrances? Have you ever bitten the bullet and bought a City Exclusive? If so, which one?
