le labo, santal 33, perfume, mens cologne, best cologne, amber venz, venzedits

During New York Fashion Week I stopped by the Gramercy Hotel and a single candle* in the lobby filled the entire room- the scent was very distinct and rich. Then at London Fashion Week, I had lunch with Emily and she was wearing the same scent: Le Labo Santal 33.

I wish a click on the screen could give you a sample of the scent, but until then, Ill just have to tell you about it. It is a unisex fragrance, so if you are feminine (or if your man likes for you to be) then I would leave this one for him or home. I don’t shy away from men’s scents (Creed Silver Mountain Water is one of my favorites) so I am going to try Santal 33 for fall.

The notes: sandalwood, virginia cedar, cardamom, violet, papyrus, leather, amber and iris.

*The Gramercy Hotel has a signature Le Labo candle- which smells a lot like Santal 33.
