All I want for Christmas is… having a choice

Le Labo newsletter came in the mail the other day & as I tend to not read the pre-Christmas flood of e-commerce this time I read it. You see, for me Le Labo is one of those brands that I quite like and I could sport a couple fragrances from their range on a daily basis (I’m talking about you – Iris 39) but I’m just not willing to pay a hyped price the brand is asking for their perfume, even if a great one. Even the fact that Le Labo now has a scent corner in Warsaw at Galilu boutique doesn’t help.

However if your mindset is different than mine here’s something that might interest you. A new discovery set from Le Labo. What is it? A set of 4 samples, but each of them is 5 ml instead of usual 1.5 ml. But here’s the catch – you don’t have a choice! The brand chose their four bestsellers: Bergamote 22, Rose 31, Santal 33 and Thé Noir 29. The idea of having a bit more before commiting to a bottle is great but without a choice a purpose seems lost. At least my money is safe.

All I want for Christmas is… Perfume

I don’t feel like doing a Christmas gift guide this year, there are many other blogs and websites where you can find those and they’ll be done way better than my guide. But if I happen to come across something fragrant that’s worth your attention, something that becomes a lemming as soon as you look at it,  you’ll be the first ones to hear from me. And I just did find something pretty!

Among hundrets of niche perfume brands JUL ET MAD is one of my favorites & has a high place on my list; I’m always excited to read about their new developments. They’re also a perfect example of thinking about perfume lovers and clients in general. The brand is more high-end and luxurious, their awesome fragrances are crafted with high quality essences, but you have options to choose from.jul-et-mad-coffret

If you don’t need a full coffret with a sparkly flacon you can pick a minimalistic version – a perfume in a sanded glass bottle in a plain box (called Love Basics). But that’s not all, if 50 ml is too much you can opt for a sleek black travel spray – Le Compagnon which holds 20 ml of the perfume. JUL ET MAD also offers you a possibility to try their line through 5 ml miniature. Could it get any better?

Oh yes it could! And it does! That mini, known as Love Dose have just gone through a total metamorphosis. From now on they hold 7 ml instead of 5 and have been repackaged into elegant & handy vials with sprays (instead of splash). Get a separate one (€25-28) as a perfect stocking stuffer or one of two available coffrets (€115-145) to gift more luxury. Plus they are refillable too!
