Laboratory Perfumes is not your ordinary fragrance house… since its creation in London in 2011, it has pursued the qualities that make up timelessly wearable scents that both men and women love. During a time when many perfumes tend to lean towards something very over complicated and exclusionary, Laboratory Perfume showcases a breath of fresh air. We are in love with three scents, Amber, Gorse and Samphire. Each scent has been scientifically formulated to create something rather charming and unique to every individual wearer. Taking a step back from the... Read More
