le labo

Barneys New York get a little insight into the world of Le Labo, a very modern perfumery. Attempting to strip away all the extraneous nonsense that comes with the world of fragrances, these formulations are made-to-order in-store by highly trained nostril owners, all based around a primary natural essence from perfume capital Grasse in France.

Co-founder Fabrice Penot talks sweet smelling business in the film below – press play.
