Laboratory Perfumes

We are delighted to present the whole range of FIVE NICHE FRAGRANCES in this affordable and beautiful Discovery Set. Founded in 2011, Laboratory Perfumes craft unique, gender-free fragrances inspired by the flora of the Great British countryside. As they say: ‘It’s a new method of making perfume the old-fashioned way.’ Their name – ‘Laboratory’ – is born from the precision with which they blend the carefully selected natural oils for each fragrance.

The contemporary scents evoke a strong sense of place; Gorse is the perfect getaway in the South of France, while you’ll fly over the Atlas Mountains of Morocco with Atlas. Come back home for a summer ramble along Britain’s rugged coastline with Amber, or spritz Samphire to evoke a sprig of verbena plucked from a friend’s garden. And then there’s Tonka, to bring you floating down to earth with its dark milky notes. We know you’ll be captured by this innovative British brand and we invite you to explore it via this must-have set..

In 2011, Aaron Firth founded Laboratory Perfumes by charting a rather unconventional course. Ignoring ‘existing industry norms’, he wanted to strip away the sometimes confusing – and sometimes alienating – ‘noise’ often associated with fragrance today, taking a kind of ‘back-to-basics’ approach, inspired directly by ‘the flowers, herbs and aromatic botanicals native to Britain and beyond.’

See below for the divine fragrances you’ll discover in this beautiful Discovery Set. Which fragrance will transport you…?

Amber – Slowly shifting from initial notes of spice and greenery to layers of wood and balmy ambergris beneath, Amber is a rich and inviting expression of balance and complexity.

Atlas – Inspired by the scents and scenery of Morocco’s Atlas Mountains, this fragrance is built around the aroma of pipe tobacco. Layers of rum, vanilla and hay are topped with cinnamon, ginger and black pepper, wrapped in the woody warmth.

Gorse – A crisp and zesty citrus with a coconut note and a hint of cardamom, this elegant scent transports you to the gorse-dotted countryside of southern France.

Samphire – Evoking the invigorating coastal air, Samphire blends juniper and verbena with lavender, basil and rosemary, with undertones of white amber and oak moss.

Tonka – An exotic fragrance capturing the zing of mandarin and pink peppercorn alongside warm woodland aromatics, finishing with the earthy vanilla of the tonka bean.
