I adore this smell. It really smells like bergamot with woody hints in it; if you like Chanel's Sycomore, this product has those musky woody fragrances along with a burst of bergamot. I would say this is my signature smell, I am really picky when it comes to perfume and get tired of them pretty quickly. I've had this perfume for over a year now and still love it, and use it almost daily which is completely unheard of for me. I have also tried many of the other le labo fragrances, but bergamote 22 is still the best one of theirs on my list!

I love Le Labo perfumes, the scents are gorgeous and Rose 31 is no exception. This is a woody rose scent, it truly smells like real, fresh roses. It takes me to a rose garden on a rainy day. Just a gorgeous, natural and true scent. On me the rose truly shines and it isn’t as androgynous as it smells in the bottle or in other people. To me, this is not a negative, but be aware that it will pull differently on different people. I recommend to try before purchasing as these perfumes are quite a large investment. They are excellent quality and the staying power is great, lasting around 6-8 hours on my skin and even longer on my clothes. I get a lot of compliments when I wear this fragrance. It makes me feel sophisticated, seductive and classy. It is truly a modern rose fragrance. I would definitely recommend it to lovers of rose. I do have to note that these are almost $400AUD though. I was lucky enough to receive a deluxe sample in a Mecca Beauty Box and have been able to enjoy this fragrance for a few weeks now, but the price is certainly not affordable for the average consumer, which is why I deducted a star.

A lovely, beautiful soft scent of vanilla and jasmine with tuberose, it has a bit if a woodsy, musky base. I love it and it's a floral that actually works in fall. It came out in 2013 and I still love it.

Ylang 49 is a very good release from Le Labo .Having worn this numerous times I can say this. Ylang 49 resembles Aromatics Elixir ( AE for short) by Clinique. Tremendously old school chypre fragrance - tart, sharpish, mega longevity especially ( IMHO ) as your bottle ages / matures. I took me several long thoughts to work out what scent Ylang reminded me of. I loved it immediately of course and now I know, it smells like Aromatics Elixir before it was reformulated. The only difference I can ascertain is that Ylang is missing the velvety rose note I used to get from pre reformulated AE . Apart from that the choice is - do you need two fragrances that are so similar. If you love AE and need more then YES. If not ....well NO. Having said that AE is not the completely full bodied scent it used to be . Less if any rose and the oakmoss ?? If you are buying Ylang for the gardenia or ylang note - I think you maybe disappointed. Ylang is a good buy if you like vintage-y strong and dry chypres. This is not a floral as you think it will be especially with the name Ylang.

Gaiac is a minimalistic masterpiece.I first tried this at Barney's and it did not sit well with me for the first couple of times I sampled it. I got ...bacon. Hickory smoked bacon. Incense and bacon. The SA did have a good laugh !However, I was able to move past that .I do love Le Labo . I took an expensive chance last year 2017. I bought a 50 ml bottle of Gaiac over Mousse de Chene , Vanille , Aldehydes etc ,etc. I found, over time,the bacon aspect disappeared and it became a scent of cool incense .I have read that some find Gaiac a quiet scent that disappears or is not lasting. Gaiac is a scent that requires no more than two sprays . On me, it lasts and lasts with soft billows of that cool and chic incense ,that never shouts . It's quite linear too. Unisex .It is a 5 star fragrance. Never underestimate Le Labo creations especially the City Exclusives. There is always more to them than meets the eye or nose. This is what makes them unique in their offerings. What may appear simple, effortless is usually a work of art.
