Le Labo Lavande 31 Travel Tube Refill Set
Le Labo’s new Lavande 31 is anything but quintessential lavender. Instead, the artisanal brand redefined the popular note in a fresh-yet-dirty eau de parfum. “In true Le Labo form, Lavande 31 knocks all preconceived notions of lavender on its head. Its bergamot and neroli essential oils give it a fresh lift-off to reveal a lavender of the greatest purity, where only the flower buds are distilled,” the brand says, adding that it blended in ambery, dirty, and musky notes. Each Le Labo scent is hand-blended using responsibly sourced ingredients. The B Corp certified brand’s packaging, including the bottle’s carton, box, and bag, is made from recycled or recyclable materials, and if consumers bring back empty bottles, Le Labo will refill them at a discount. Lavande 31 is available in five sizes, along with this new refillable, reusable set of three 10ml travel sprays. The refill set sells for $180 on lelabofragrances.com.
