PERFUME OUTPOST: Le Labo recently opened its first freestanding store in France, on Paris’ Left Bank. The boutique is home to the fragrance brand’s entire collection — including personal and home scents — plus Vanille 44, a creation made especially for the outpost. (Vanilla was chosen as the note best representative of French perfumery.)
The 444-square-foot Le Labo shop has an artisanal feel, with wooden floors and some rough-hewn walls. A glassed-in section toward the back is where the fragrances are concocted on the spot for clients.
