Le Labo Santal 33 Eau De Parfum

Drawing inspiration from the old Marlboro ads. A man and his horse in front of the fire on a great plain under tall blue evening skies – A defining image of the spirit of the American West with all it implied about masculinity and personal freedom. This man firelight in his face leaning on the worn leather saddle alone with the desert wind an icon so powerful that every man wanted to be him and every woman wanted to have him.

From this memory is born Santal 33: the ambition to create an olfactive form inspired by the great American myth still a source of fantasy for the rest of the world. A perfume that touches the sensual universality of this icon – that would intoxicate a man as much as a woman – that introduces a use of cardamom iris violet ambrox which crackle in the formula and bring to this smoking wood alloy (Australian sandalwood papyrus cedarwood) some spicy leathery musky notes. It gives this perfume a unisex signature and addictive comfort.

Santal 33 is an open fire. The soft drift of smoke. Where sensuality rises after the light has gone.
