Labdanum 18

Eau de Parfum

by Le Labo

The Scoop
The most enigmatic and sensual and, unexpectedly, the most comforting in the Le Labo collection, Labdanum 18, composed by one of our favorite perfumers, Maurice Roucel, is a modern oriental masterpiece. With its golden spiciness, its sweet musk and the animal undertones of civet and castoreum, Labdanum 18 makes a statement... but makes it in a quiet voice, drawing those around closer to the wearer, making them eager to smell more. The drydown, which is softer than soft, a delicate, whispery blend of the finest leather, vanilla and musk, offers the comfort that only the most loving embrace can provide. Complex, always changing and dangerously addictive!

One of the most subtle of the La Labo fragrances - yet more complex in many ways. Those that write this off as baby powder aren't taking the time to discover everything it has to offer. I love how it moves between smoky, dark and musky to light, amber, even slightly floral. I own many LL fragrances (Santal, Fleur D'Oranger, Niroli, Vetiver) and this has the most longevity. Apply before dinner and it will be with you the next morning. I don't see this becoming my signature scent, but definitely a regular. As others have suggested, Labdanum has a nostalgic element to it - it definitely strikes a certain emotion. Very comforting. BTW, I think Labdanum is very unisex. I tend to veer away from androgynous scents but this is very easy for a man to wear.

The first hour of this fragrance is swoonworthy; deep, sweet & smoky with the animalic note of castoreum purring away beneath it all. After this, it slowly becomes more powdery & ambery, drying down to a sweet, musky vanilla hours later. l absolutely adore that first hour, but after a promising start, it seems to lose it's power & turn from being incredibly seductive to being simply a nice comfort scent.

Comforting, elegant and sexy, but in a quiet way. I really don`t think it would offend anyone. Perfect for daytime during autumn/ winter. I could easily wear this one at work, but would definitely choose something more "daring" for the evening:)

This is beautiful. It is not about labdanum, but more about powder and amber and underpants. It reminds me of Ambre Russe and Musc Ravageur. It is a highly stylized powder that is built upon far deeper sexier components that the sweet talcom suggests. So, your nose follows the scent deeper into spice civet vanilla and musky skin.

Wowzers. This is equivalent to wearing a very pretty, feminine dress that covers up the leather underwear that you also just happen to be wearing. Whiffs of powdery, mellow vanilla, warm, soft leather and a wink of civet and musk. Amazing.

Slightly disappointed with this Le Labo fragrance. All I get is a hefty dose of baby talc.

Sexy as hell. This reminds me a lot of Guerlains Oriental Brulant...with a bright/fresh note...and a bit more powdery. This is a sexy vanilla skin scent. You should wear this with lacy lingerie and nothing else.

Completely addictive and oh so wearable. It reminds me of a softer, less harsh version of Musc Ravageur. I have MR perfume oil and edp and did not think I really needed this but my decant kept haunting me and I reached for this fragrance over and over again. The drydown is the best part--like the fragrance of one's skin, but better. I am smitten!!

Update to my post below: tried this again, whi can I smell cucumber in the opening! Like fresh cucumber, that slowly goes into a fresh soapy rose. Very clean but really not the sort of scent I'd buy. The biggest disappointment for me here is simply that it doesn't really smell like rose to me at all - I smell cucumber and soapy baby powder. 12 hours later it's still there and finally now I can smell the vanilla base, its very soft and still has tones of baby powder.

After hearing alot of hype about this I was dying to try it and was expecting it would knock my socks off! Unfortunately for me, this ended up being a pleasant but a bit too boring, soft slightly sweet, powdery musk. I love vanilla but can't really smell it in here, and I don't get much patchouli either. unless the patchouli in here is a special extreeeeemely soft kind, in which case maybe that's the powderiness that I'm getting. All in all definitely not FBW for me. Pleasant but nothing special, and I bet my husband will just say it smells like baby powder.

This is far and away my favorite of the Le Labo line. A combination of sweetness, musk, amber and a hint of leather, this gorgeous fragrance has had me compulsively sniffing my wrist all day! Maurice Roucel may be my new favorite person.

This is my favorite labdanum - slightly sweet, warm, sexy skin scent. Very well done and long-lasting.
