Reviews of AnOther 13

Allegedly created around the ambrox synthetic musk, Another 13 is another Le Labo fragrance, much like Ambrette 9, that I simply do not get much out of. It doesn't smell bad but it doesn't smell of much at all. Some liken it to paper, which makes sense, given that the fragrance itself was created in collaboration with Another magazine, but it smells of citrus enough to take away any likeness to paper.

It's certainly weak enough to not even consider at a Le Labo Price point, but I don't even find the scent that pleasant, but rather, an odd fruity/musky mix that I'll be steering clear of.

Again, it's not a bad fragrance, like Ambrette 9, but I simply do not experience enough of its merits to outweigh its overall oddness.

Definitely unique as they come. Very clean and pretty safe IMO. Does have a paper smell as previously mentioned. For that price, I'm not trying to smell like paper. Can be worn in warm weather because of its lightness. 7/10

Clean to the core....What does it smell like? Yes, the resemblance is there...of a brand new magazine taken out of the plastic and opened for the first time(That fresh smell of the magazine paper)... But, it is so much more than that. I use this fragrance so much in the warm weather because I never get bored with it. In general, I prefer iso e super and ambroxan and in this fragrance, both notes are pushed to the max. The cleanliness can be described as "sterile", metallic, salty sweet, velvety and smooth....NOT clean like laundry....or fresh cotton. This fragrance is very hard to dislike. Another 13 is one of my favorite offerings from this house aside from Gaiac 10.

A very clean, steely, bright and sterile wood scent with added ambrox - the latter takes over soon as the centerpiece of this composition. Towards the end a bland musky component appears. An interesting exercise in biochemic dissection that remains dull overall. Maybe one could order it directly from Firmenich at a discount price. Limited silage but decent projection, with a good longevity of five hours. In case of a headache the salicylate might come in handy and one might save on the aspirin.

Le Labo does Escentric Molecules. Or should I say Le Labo does L'Antimatiere? Whatever....

An "invisible" concoction with absolutely no animalic notes detected. This is the purest woody amber and that's it. What it smells like? Cedarwood, other woods, even more woods, metallic amber. Sometimes it's sharp, sometimes velvety, sort of clean and very minimalistic. Just like Escentric 01 or L'Antimatiere, the level of appreciation of Another 13 is strongly related to your personal grade of anosmia to the aromachemicals involved in the composition. Upon application it strikes as a sharp metallic amber to then quickly disappear from your body. You think it's gone but no way. There it goes again, on and on and on....and on with its unmistakeable woody amber aroma.

Do I Like it? Yes, well sort of. Let's say it's very pleasant and, because of that, it's not a case that woody amber became one of the most common bases in modern perfumery but be aware that Another 13 it's far from being artistically relevant or innovative. That being said, if you find it for cheap (almost impossible), get it...otherwise, seal you wallets as you'll get bored in no time.

Us usual with Le Labo, unappropriately labelled. I guess "Yet Another 13" could have been a better name.

Note: It could have been a mild thumbs up if it weren't for the outrageous price tag but at these prices I expect something more than a plain woody amber.

This fragrance is not made to please everybody at first. If you get your nose on this particular fragrance you will be surprised because there is no other fragrance such as this one out in the market. I appreciate this fragrance for its simplicity and yet not giving up the concept of complexity, do I reach for this everyday, NO!, but when I feel like I need to smell different and mysterious, this is what I reach for.
