On-the-go shoppers can pick up pre-made bottles of the French brand’s clean, vegan creations on the first floor of Forty Five Ten’s new downtown department store, but the real Le Labo experience takes place just across Main Street, in a small shop beneath The Joule.
Once inside, customers can witness Le Labo’s 15 natural fragrances, including Dallas exclusive Aldehyde 44, being compounded on the spot. “We have an atomizer in the back. We’re actually mixing everything and measuring it.” says store manager Paul Heil. “There’s a little piece of our soul that goes into each bottle.”
