Bet you thought you would see Santal 33 on this list, didn’t you? While I love the cult classic, I love Rose 31 by Le Labo more. But, in truth, Le Labo (which is all cruelty-free, by the way. Not 100% vegan though) doesn’t make a bad perfume. What’s more is that, while perfumes tend to be targeted more toward women, Le Labo is proudly unisex and worn by men, too!
Top: rose absolute, cumin
Middle: vetiver, cedar
Base: amber, cistus, musks
Rose 31 is an intricate mix of rose with a number of other notes you’d never think to put together including rose absolute, cumin, vetiver, musks, cedar, agarwood, olibanium, amber, guaiacwood, and cistus. In short, it’s complicated and attention-grabbing in the best way.
