“After a family holiday in Morocco, I spent weeks rifling through tins of pipe tobacco in a specialist store in Mayfair to find the right base for a scent that evoked the rich, leathery smells we discovered in the mountains.”
Nostalgia is a form of time travel for the emotions, and scent can be the most powerful way to trigger it. For Laboratory Perfumes, a whiff of pipe tobacco can be enough to unleash a fond flood of childhood memories into the hippocampus. So, when it came to determining the base for our fifth fragrance, we chose something very personal – that earthily aromatic tobacco note.
With the help of a knowledgeable but somewhat bemused tobacconist, Laboratory Perfumes went through dozens of different blends and cures in search of the right scent to build upon. The one they settled on had a whisper of the exotic, reminiscent of Morocco, so back in the lab, supportive layers of rum, vanilla and hay that intensified its North African character, were added.
Spiced with cinnamon, ginger and black pepper, and complemented with the warming, woody aromas of fine Cognac, the result is a complex and confident fragrance that unveils intriguing new layers and facets as the day goes on.
This particular fragrance has to be infused into beeswax in order to preserve the integrity of the scent.
