Le Labo Gets A Room-------
Our hoarding tendencies tend to kick into high gear when it comes to hotel beauty products. Suddenly, whether or not a specific product will serve any purpose in our regimen is completely unimportant. If those perfectly petite bottles of lotions and potions happen to come courtesy of a brand we already hoard at home, all the better—which is why we were particularly elated to learn that the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts (which includes the Plaza in New York and the Savoy in London) had paired up with Le Labo on a new amenities project. One of our very favorite boutique perfumers, the Nolita-based brand’s celebrated Rose 31—a rich, spicy floral composed of cedar, musk, cumin, and, of course, its titular bloom, which has been extracted directly from Grasse—has been imagined in shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, gel, and soap form. We’ll definitely be tracking down the housekeeping staff for a few extras, when we “run out” on our next stay.
