Currently lusting after… | A Lab On Fire at Anthropologie

Oh my god, you guys. These sound amazing! They’re tiny ($32 US for 0.5 fl oz), but – um, yes please.

From the Anthropologie site:

“Each of these four scents from niche perfumers A Lab on Fire, are created by a famous “nose,” batched in a state-of-the-art facility, and packaged and labeled by hand in Brooklyn.

  • What We Do Is Secret: the olfactory footprint of A Lab on Fire; bergamot, nutmeg, pepper, leather, jasmine, sandalwood patchouli and birch (SPICE)
  • What We Do In Paris Is Secret: developed by perfumer Dominique Ropion; a blend of bergamot, honey, lychee fruit, Turkish rose, vanilla, heliotrope, tonka bean, sandalwood and ambergris (SPICE)
  • Rose Rebelle SC-7545: an explosion of Bulgarian and Turkish roses, blended with valerian, red currant, ivy leaves, musk and labdanum (FLORAL)
  • L’Anonyme ou OP-1475-A: developed by perfumer Olivier Polge; a rich blend of bergamot, geranium, blonde woods, white amber and leather (WOODSY)”

I’m dying over the notes listing for What We Do Is Secret. Bergamot, nutmeg, pepper, leather, and patchouli, all in one little bottle! It sounds like a dream come true – but I’m wary to order, seeing as the four A Lab On Fire EdPs are online exclusives. Has anyone tried? Thoughts; opinions?

(And Olivier Polge; they’ve gone and gotten themselves a Polge! It’s no secret that I’m head over heels for just about any Polge creation, be it by Jacques or Olivier. Now that is a family with talent.)

    wow, these are available in the u.s. now? previously they were only for sale on colette in france, and I couldn't shell out the shipping fees. Must order! Haven't tried, but there is no place to try, and I feel the price is quite reasonable :P

    • Should be, yep! Just the little Anthropologie guys, though – I think the brand's regular bottles are larger.

      Let me know what you think of these, if you end up trying them! I'd love to hear your thoughts ;)

      • hrm, I think the anthropologie size is standard for the brand; colette lists 15ml too.
        Will let you know if I get them!

        • Ah! I guess Colette is doing smaller sizes, too, then? The brand's site (here) lists only 60ml/2oz bottles, and LuckyScent (here) does the same.

          I hope they're just as incredible as they sound! ;o)

          • ah, now i feel silly. Samples are available too. I should order some from Luckyscent.

          • Aww, don't feel silly! If anything, you should feel proud – I hadn't heard of Colette before, and spent a good fifteen minutes just clicking through their (wonderfully minimalist) site. So: thanks for linking me to them! ;)

  • It's a bummer they didn't create any citrus-y or fruity fragance, because that's the only kind I really like wearing! :(

  • Rose Rebelle and L’Anonyme ou really pique my interest!

  • Oooh, these look interesting! I once set a fire in a lab when I used to work in one. I no longer work in a lab, which is probably for the best.

    • LOL! Oh, my god. If I could favourite comments, I'd favourite this one :P

  • Neko

    I received all four as a gift from my husband. The what we do in Paris is secret is my all time fav. If I am ever in Edmonton, I would be more than happy to let you give them a sniff :)

    • Ooh, I'm terribly jealous! Thank you for your kind offer, Neko ;)
