About Baie 19

The company says:

Truth is…Baie 19 should have been called Water 19. Not that it smells like nothing (though nothing smells like it), but it has this crisp, wet, drenched effect that water gives to the earth after the rain...

Reviews of Baie 19

Airy, dry, somewhat green and clean-sweat musky with lots of juniper berries. Comes off light and fresh but the projection is punchy. What it reminds me of most is a mixture of wet (Rain, Thunderstorm, etc) and earth (Dirt) themed scents from Demeter but with much, much better performance.

Perfectly unisex and work-ready, seems best for daytime wearings that need to be inoffensive and clean.

The projection isn't big but anytime you want to smell it near where you smelled, it is very available and persistent. Lasts all day.

Le Labo’s latest Baie 19, which I first smelled in my local Nordstrom over the weekend and obtained a sample there, is very instantly pleasant out of the bottle, on paper, and now on skin, the effect being a fresh musky semi-sweet floral.

It uses ambroxan fairly heavily, that smooth synthetic sandalwood underscoring bits of juniper and patchouli, but the effect on me is almost an aldehydic floral. It’s a reasonably safe release, even safer than Tonka 25, but somewhat less interesting, almost a more muted alternative for those who find Tonka 25 disagreeable.

Pricing is the same as the rest of the standard line (not city exclusives, in other words): $275 for 100ml, $189 for 50ml, $82 for 15ml at Nordstrom at other boutiques like Luckyscent that contain it. It performs reasonably well, perhaps middle of the pack in the line.

Overall, I like it, but it doesn’t move the needle much. It’s agreeable and quite likable but just not lovable enough to make as much of an impression as Tonka 25 did.
