“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
The fragrances Laboratory Perfumes create 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, Laboratory Perfumes decided to find a way to capture its zesty rush for this, their third fragrance.
A sprig of that verbena was crushed with a pinch of juniper berries from the spice rack – and Samphire began to take shape.
Moving from the kitchen to the lab, citrus oil, flourishes of lavender, basil and rosemary, as well as base notes of white amber and oak moss were blended in 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.
