Look, I’ll be the first to admit that Le Labo’s iconic Santal 33 scent smells really good. In addition to owning a bottle myself, the scent has become so wildly popular over the years that’s it’s basically a calling card for in-the-know Millennials. Basically, if you know, you know. But the Brooklyn-based perfume brand has so many more oil-based unisex scents to offer beyond its best-seller—and I’m here to walk you through which ones to consider.
For my own fragrance-buying mission and for your fragrance-buying missions (I’m here to serve), I asked Le Labo to send me samples of their best-selling scents, and they kindly shared their Discovery Kit filled with 17 sample-sized spritzes. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been switching up my scent on a daily basis, because variety is the spice of life, and I wanted to give you my honest reviews of the nine best Le Labo perfumes.
