By The Creators of Le Labo for Anthropologie

Last night was a busy night, I made my rounds in the Meatpacking area for events and one stop was to the launch event at Anthropologie for the “By The Creators of Le Labo,” the exclusive collection of fragrances and candles between Anthropologie and Fabrice Penot and Edouard Roschi, founders of New York cult fragrance house Le Labo. I’m super picky when it comes to candles and fragrances, but I’m absolutely in love with this collection.

Created exclusively for Anthropologie, the line is a collection of five unique and historically inspired scents formulated by Le Labo founders Fabrice Penot and Edouard Roschi. The collection consists of Chant de Bois (a feminine wood), Belle Du Soir (a musky chypre), Orange Discrète (a clean citrus), Poudre D’Orient (an oriental blend) and Bouquet Blanc (a decadent floral). My favorite of all is Bouquet Blanc.

In the spirit of traditional French perfume guild practices, each scent is made of natural, high-quality ingredients. Protective amber glass vessels—including a replica of an 18th century poison bottle—house the eau de parfum, wood block diffuser and candle, while a sliding metal compact fashioned after turn-of-the-century measuring tins encases the solid perfume. Vintage stamp designs further enhance the distinct charm of each fragrance. I love love love the vintage look of the bottle and stamp designs, so different from what I have in my collection.

The collection is available in Eau de parfum 50 ml $62, Solid perfume 4.5 g $28 and Candle 12 oz $32, available at Anthropologie stores and
