Le Labo was one of my best finds of 2016.  I started with some samples directly from their website and from there bought the Thé Noir perfume from my local Nordstrom.

I knew I would go back to Le Labo for Bergamot 22 eventually because if you recall from my post (here), Bergamot 22 was one of the samples that I really liked. I ended up picking up the shower gel and the body lotion. Le Labo describes Bergamot 22 as a delicate floral with the sweetness of amber and musk with a touch of vetiver. I think it’s a great scent for spring. Le Labo did a great job with the formula in the shower gel and lotion. So whether you layer both or just use one, you get the same lovely scent to carry you through the day. I found the shower gel to be about average on the suds and it rinses clean. The body lotion absorbs well without leaving a white cast on my skin.

The Palo Santo 14 candle is one of Le Labo’s newest offerings. If you are a fan of incense or Palo
Santo sticks this candle gives you a lighter, less heady dose of that sweet smokey goodness. Quite a few folks feel that burning Palo Santo clears away bad vibes. I loved the smell of this candle and the way this year is going I’ll take all the help I can get.

You can find Le Labo at Nordstrom and online here.

    My Mom swears by Le Labo. I’ve never had the pleasure of trying them out myself, but this raving review just nudged me in the right direction.

    Sounds like heaven. I love candles too but sometimes I've been tricked by how it smelt when not burning to find the scent was too weak. Le Lebo certainly has a nice look and sounds amazing. I hope your year is getting better :)

      I've experienced that myself in the past but not with the brands I post about on here.
