The biggest news in fragrance world this week was perhaps the phasing out of Le Labo Aldehyde 44.
Le Labo Aldehyde 44 is a Dallas City exclusive, and not available online or in other Le Labo stores. Aldehyde 44, they say, is a wonderful fragrance though it is far from the most famous aldehyde, Chanel No. 5.
Le Labo said that the phasing out of the perfume is due to the closing of the store that carries it, Barneys New York in Dallas. Those already with a bottle, however, will continue to enjoy refills through other Le Labo stores.
Here in Manila, on the other hand, another celebu-scent debuts!
Bench, the local leader on celebrity fronted scents releases Oh My George! by Georgina Wilson. I haven’t seen nor smelt it yet but I am guessing it is a light fruity floral given that Georgina once mentioned Jo Malone & Chanel Chance as her scent essentials.
