We recently attended the opening of the new MECCA Concept Store on Queen Street in Auckland (The biggest Mecca store in the world!) and one of the highlights was finding out that they are now stocking a selection of fragrances and products from cult fragrance brand Le Labo. This is a first for New Zealand…
No doubt you will have heard of this niche fragrance brand, a brand that believes perfume should have a soul, that it must create a ‘shock’ and a brand so unapologetically proud of what they do they believe celebrities should pay full price. And maybe you will have even been lucky enough to smell one of their most iconic fragrances, the legendary Santal 33. But did you know that they also do the most beautiful luxurious body cream too?
We have recently discovered this thick and buttery cream that stands up to all day wear and is so intensely scented that you will not need to wear a fragrance. So if your budget is not going to stretch to one of the notoriously famous bottles of scent then we can suggest purchasing this instead. It’s decadent, hydrating and made with natural ingredients like Avocado, Shea Butter and Coconut oil.
The Hinoki scent is spicy, exotic and inspired by the Buddhist temples of Mount Koya in Japan. This mystical and sensual heavily fragranced cream can easily be worn by men or woman. And like all Le Labo products, it is vegan and cruelty-free.
We are anticipating that once word gets out that Le Labo is stocked at MECCA in New Zealand it will be near impossible to keep it on the shelves so don’t delay if you have always wanted to experience this iconic brand.
