Le Labo Santal 33 - fragrance for women and men

Santal 33 by Le Labo - A woody aromatic fragrance for women and men inspired by the American West and the spirit of freedom. The scent created by perfumer Frank Voelkl, evokes the smoky wood aroma of an open fire with notes of Australian sandalwood and papyrus. As with all Le Labo fragrances, the name of the scent depicts the most prominent note of santalum (sandalwood) and the number of notes used to create the perfume (33). Launched in 2011 the eau de parfum is housed in an apothecary style glass perfume bottle with simple white label and silver cap and available in eau de parfum spray, solid perfume, and matching body products from Barneys and Nordstrom.

Le Labo Santal 33

"Do you remember the old Marlboro ads? A man and his horse in front of the fire on a great plain under tall, blue evening skies. A defining image of the spirit of the American West with all it implied about masculinity and personal freedom. This man, firelight in his face, leaning on the worn leather saddle, alone with the desert wind, an icon so powerful that every man wanted to be him and every woman wanted to have him... From this memory is born SANTAL 33: the ambition to create an olfactive form inspired by the great American myth still a source of fantasy for the rest of the world... A perfume that touches the sensual universality of this icon... that would intoxicate a man as much as a woman... that introduces our use of cardamom, iris, violet, ambrox which crackle in the formula and bring to this smoking wood alloy (Australian sandalwood, papyrus, cedarwood) some spicy, leathery, musky notes, and gives this perfume its unisex signature and addictive comfort. Here is, in a few words, what SANTAL 33 is... An open fire... The soft drift of smoke... Where sensuality rises after the light has gone." --lelabofragrances.com

BEAUTY Candice Huffine
This intrepid model thinks comfort zones are overrated. "At the end of 2015, my husband dared me to make running my New Year's resolution," Huffine says. "I started out slowly, running a mile a day, but not every day. Once I began to feel comfortable, I went a little father." ... Today, Huffine wants every woman to define wellness on her own terms... "Self-care is an exploration of yourself - whatever that looks like to you is perfect."

"I always give myself one little spritz of Le Labo before I work out [so] I feel cute, fresh, and clean. It drives my husband nuts!"
