Laboratory Perfumes - Amber Eau De Toilette - 100ml
The fragrances created at Laboratory Perfumes often start with a single aroma. In Samphire’s case, it was a young leaf of verbena plucked from a friend’s garden on a spring afternoon. The scent was so arrestingly fresh, the team at Laboratory Perfumes decided to find a way to capture its zesty rush for they third fragrance. They crushed a sprig of that verbena with a pinch of juniper berries from the spice rack – and Samphire began to take shape. Moving from the kitchen to the lab, they blended in citrus oil, flourishes of lavender, basil and rosemary, and base notes of white amber and oak moss to create a bright, cool, aromatic scent with a lightness of touch that belies its complexity and longevity on the skin. The finished scent was so clearly evocative of the seashore they could only call it Samphire. “The chic, minimal packaging hints at its chemistry-set roots while the scent is clean, natural and highly addictive. Move over Love Potion No. 9...” – House and Garden
