A viscous resin harvested from the European rock rose, we love labdanum it for its richness, complexity & incredible lasting power. Our perfumer Isaac Sinclair declares labdanum his ‘fetish’ scent.
Grey Labdanum snuck into the collection and our hearts when perfumer Isaac and founder Frances couldn’t resist its charms and made a last minute decision to extend the collection (that was to be four) with this rock star fragrance.
The intensity of labdanum is wrestled by equally precocious notes of patchouli, incense and ambergris (naturally derived from clove bud oil). Top notes of violet and bitter orange give a freshness and unexpected twist.
It’s no surprise this punk-rock fragrance is our master perfumer’s favourite: they’re both dark, edgy and somewhat polarising.
