23.11.12

If anyone is going to the New York, London or Paris and has some spare room in their suitcase they wouldn’t mind filling with, um, unguents, may I request that you do so with Le Labo… for me? And if you decide you want to keep it all rather than hand it over to me when you get back, I might even forgive you.

I don’t think it’s possible to buy the body lotions, soaps, shower gels, etc. here in Australia – fragrance only. (Why why why?) I need more when it comes to Le Labo‘s Bergamote 22. (Did I ever mention that 2 is my favourite number and that two 2s are even better than one… and how does anyone come up with a favourite number anyway?)

I stayed a few nights at the Park Hyatt Sydney recently for the work thing and swiped a few of these mini Bergamote 22s when I left.

I must say that it’s as much the packaging as it is the scent. The font selection. The thick white waxed paper wrapper for the soaps. The fact that you can have the item labelled for yourself (or someone else)… I mean, even the Park Hyatt went for it.

I never thought of myself as a mini soaps hoarder (I might’ve taken three of those – ahem!). Which leads me back to the original question: anyone want to go shopping for me?

  1. the right ones are just begging to be hoarded though, let’s be honest. i was all over molton brown’s gingerlily body wash in portugal…i don’t know this one but, ooh, bergamot! i’ll go shopping for you…^^

    • Aw, that’s so nice of you! 🙂 Have a sniff next time you chance upon it. I’d be interested to know what you think. (Our tastes seem pretty similar in a few things.)

  2. I’m with you on this! Stayed at the Park Hyatt and swiped the same loot as in your photo. I never even usually take the shampoo and conditioner from hotels because they are so crappy. I used these are fell in love! Only now do I realise I should’ve hoarded more…you can’t even seem to buy the Bergamot 22 anywhere!! Only the Rose they did for Fairmont hotels. If you find any let me know 🙂

    • Ah, Rowie…. It’s possible to purchase Bergamote 22, the scent from Mecca Cosmetica (for those of us Australia-based), but they don’t seem to stock the lotions and other stuff… which doesn’t help us, does it? Suffice to say, I have a New York trip on the cards in the next couple of months, and you can bet your Bergamote 22 I have Le Labo on my hot list! 😉

  3. I just stayed at the Park Hyatt here in Toronto and also fell in love with Le Labo Bergamote 22 soaps, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. I’d go out of my way to get my hands on this awesome product!
