All the scents are made in the UK using socially-conscious, environmentally-friendly and cruelty-free ingredients. The scents are created by using mostly essential and fragrant oils. All of them are skin-kind and free from parabens.

Laboratory Perfumes’ products are vegetarian and cruelty-free; the scented candles are made with paraffin wax.

AMBER

Amber follows the wearer through their day, evolving as the hours pass and bringing out different component notes as the tempo changes. Its dynamic burst of grassiness and greenery matches the energy of morning, subtly maturing into rich spice as the day continues. Closing notes of warm, earthy wood and balmy ambergris bring a more subdued, reflective tone to the fragrance as evening draws in.

Spice / Greenery / Wood / Balmy ambergris

Makers Note:
“We wanted to create a scent that was full of energy in the morning (strong, lively citrus notes at the top), calmer by lunchtime, and mellow in the evening (woody and dry tobacco notes at the base). An olfactory mood enhancer.”

GORSE

The second scent owes its existence to a gorse-lined driveway in Provence. Captivated by the coconut-infused air surrounding the yellow flowers of the gorse bushes, “we set about creating a scent that captured the essence of summer in the countryside.”

The result is a fresh, crisp fragrance that transports the wearer to sun-kissed heathlands along the coast. Opening with invigorating top note of citrus, and of course, the delightful coconut hit of the gorse flower, the scent is given a spicy depth by the suggestion of cardamom beneath.

Makers Note:
“When I was a child, my parents would drive us overnight from London to their holiday house in Provence in a battered Peugeot 205. As we arrived, after the 13-hour drive, we would open the car windows to let in the morning heat, hear the crunch of the pebbles on the drive, and breathe in the tantalisingly fresh smell of the passing gorse bushes. The holiday had begun.”

SAMPHIRE

The fragrances we create at Laboratory Perfumes often start with a single aroma. In Samphire’s case, it was a young leaf of verbena plucked from a friend’s garden on a spring afternoon. The scent was so arrestingly fresh, “we decided to find a way to capture its zesty rush for our third fragrance.”

Crushed a sprig of that verbena with a pinch of juniper berries from the spice rack – and Samphire began to take shape. Moving from the kitchen to the lab, we blended in citrus oil, flourishes of lavender, basil and rosemary, and base notes of white amber and oak moss to create a bright, cool, aromatic scent with a lightness of touch that belies its complexity and longevity on the skin. The finished scent was so clearly evocative of the seashore we could only call it Samphire.

Makers Note:
“The idea for our Samphire scent came after a lazy Sunday lunch in Hammersmith rather than a swim off the Suffolk coast. Foregoing coffee for a fresh sprig of verbena from the garden, I was immediately captivated  by its fresh and zesty aroma. It all began there.”

TONKA

Exotic and indulgent, Tonka is the fourth fragrance from Laboratory Perfumes. In the laboratory we paired the peppercorn scent with the zing of mandarin, and added a layer of depth and richness with warm woodland aromatics. The finishing touch is provided by the vanilla-tobacco notes of the tonka bean – its captivating earthiness holds the scent together, and gives our complex, exotic and cleanly elegant fragrance its name.

Zing of mandarin & pink peppercorn / Warm woodland aromatics / Earthy vanilla of tonka bean

Makers Note:
“Tonka’s story began in a jar of pink peppercorns. Rummaging in the spice cupboard, we discovered that beneath their peppery notes, the dried berries of the Peruvian pepper tree have a finely balanced floral fruitiness to their aroma. The tonka bean provides the elegant and earthy finishing touch.” 

ATLAS

Nostalgia is a form of time travel for the emotions, and scent can be the most powerful way to trigger it. For Laboratory Perfumes, a whiff of pipe tobacco can be enough to unleash a fond flood of childhood memories into the hippocampus. So, when it came to determining the base for our fifth fragrance, we chose something very personal – that earthily aromatic tobacco note.

With the help of a knowledgeable but somewhat bemused tobacconist, we went through dozens of different blends and cures in search of the right scent to build upon. The one we settled on had a whisper of the exotic, reminiscent of Morocco, so back in the lab we introduced supportive layers of rum, vanilla and hay that intensified its North African character. Spiced with cinnamon, ginger and black pepper, and complemented with the warming, woody aromas of fine Cognac, the result is a complex and confident fragrance that unveils intriguing new layers and facets as the day goes on.

Aroma of pipe tobacco / Rum, vanilla & hay / Cinnamon, ginger & black pepper

Makers Note:
“After a family holiday in Morocco, I spent weeks rifling through tins of pipe tobacco in a specialist store in Mayfair to find the right base for a scent that evoked the rich, leathery smells we discovered in the mountains.”
