INSPIRATION

British scent specialists Laboratory Perfumes was founded by Aaron Firth in 2011. Having worked as a menswear retailer for many years, and become disillusioned by how transient fashion had become, Aaron wanted to create something more permanent. The appeal of fragrance was not only its longevity, but the way a scent manages to be both personal and invisible.

Inspired by the natural flowers, herbs and aromatic botanicals of Britain, as well as trips to the south of France and the mountains of Morocco, its range of Eau de Toilette scents and candles are carefully crafted in a laboratory to react to the wearer and evolve during the day. It’s a new way of making perfume the old-fashioned way. The scents created by Laboratory Perfumes don’t dictate age, origin or gender. They allow your journey to remain your own.

SUSTAINABILITY

All fragrances and candles are made in the UK in our own laboratory using environmentally friendly ingredients - predominantly essential and fragrant oils. All products are skin friendly, paraben free and fully compliant with International Fragrance Association standards. Only Gorse contains a small amount of phthalates and preservatives, which are necessary to stabilise the citrus oils. The scented candles - with the exception of Atlas - are made from paraffin wax. Laboratory tests have shown that this particular fragrance needs to be soaked in beeswax to maintain the integrity of the fragrance. The supply chain is small, transparent, UK only and fully compliant with ISO 9000: 2008. The glass, cardboard and paper used for the packaging is sustainably sourced and largely recycled.
