| Giveaway | Le Labo Santal 26 Candle

Le Labo form some our our most favoured fragrances. We are fond of the Bergamot, my sister is partial to Jasmin and one of our dearest friends seems to live in Rose. Their packing is ace, their staff always helpful and their boutiques are handsomely appointed. We like so many things about Le Labo but we especially like their manifesto:

In the run up to our next blog anniversary we have got hold of their continually praised full sized SANTAL 26 scented  candle that we can have personalised just for you.  If you would like to win one, please do throw your name into the hat via the Rafflecopter from below !


We believe that there are too many bottles of perfume and not enough soulful fragrances

We believe the soul of a fragrance comes from the intention with which it is created and the attention with which it is prepared

We believe fine perfumery must create a shock – the shock of the new, combined with the shock of the intimately familiar

We believe that fine perfumery must be irreverent

We believe it is more humane to test cosmetics on New Yorkers than on animals

We believe celebrities should pay full price

We believe the future of luxury (hence of perfumery) lies in craftsmanship

We believe in the soulful power of thoughtful hands: hand-picked roses, hand-poured candles, hand-formulated perfumes and handshake agreements

We believe in the passionate souls who work close to us

We believe in Hafiz’s take on life : “Act great, dear. Always act great”

We believe New York made us this way, with a dose of Wabi-Sabi and a few lines from Thoreau

We believe we/you should put away our modern tools and take the time to smell the roses along the way

We believe that we are only young once, but we can be immature forever

And we believe that explanation kills art. Therefore, forget about all of this !
