Artisan perfumers Le Labo have mastered the art of slow-perfumery. As the only one in the market to offer made-to-order perfumes, each of their creations is crafted from the finest ingredients, sourced from around the world. Le Labo’s fine fragrances are fresh-blended by hand and compounded on the spot upon order at their in-boutique lab to ensure quality. This obviously takes time and effort but the result is priceless. Le Labo’s bespoke perfume service is exclusively available at Suria KLCC and, indeed, the whole of Malaysia.
Perfume Appreciation Lesson 1:
Learn to appreciate the fine art of perfumery. Spritz some perfume on the underside of your wrist and bring your nose close. Let the scent linger as you take in the perfume’s top notes. Pause to appreciate.
Le Labo’s personal touch extends to the labels of their freshly blended fragrance creations. One can be personalise the label of each perfume with a name or message of choice, of up to 23 characters. This final but vital touch is the ultimate in bespoke perfumery.
Perfume Appreciation Lesson 2:
Bring your nose close to the wrist again to take in the mid-notes of the fragrance. Slow perfumery allows for this elusive olfactory tier to be appreciated more fully.
Le Labo’s top five scents may spark inspiration for different creations but these perfumes will themselves become firm favourites in your collection:
- Another 13
- Bergamote 22
- Santal 33

- Rose 31
Perfume Appreciation Lesson 3:
The base notes form the scent that lingers after. Go about the day before returning your nose to the wrist to take in the very heart of the perfume.
