    Default Citron 28 (Seoul city exclusive) by Le Labo

    Now Smell This reported:

    Le Labo has introduced Citron 28, the new city-exclusive fragrance for Seoul.

    In the beginning, CITRON 28’s early codename was CITRON BOHEME; we wanted a real lemon perfume that wasn’t just lemon, but a twist on this icon of citruses.

    "A mix and match of freshness and structure (lemon, ginger, and jasmine, resting on cedar and musks), it strikes the right balance between the original and the conservative. CITRON 28 meets the need for purity and simplicity and, as such, delivers something almost universal and easy to understand – yet remains inscrutable. This complex composition is dedicated to Seoul, an alpha city, one of the iconic capitals of the world. A city with its own contradictions, rooted in tradition and history yet at the forefront of all that is modern and forward thinking. Opposing forces that only a bohemian citrus can embrace."

    Le Labo Citron 28, along with the brand's other city-exclusives, will be available worldwide every September. The rest of the year it will only be sold in Seoul. It is available in 15, 50, 100 and 500 ml ($132 - $1765).


    "A man has made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when he plants shade trees under which he knows full well he will never sit. "

    Le Labo is very hit or miss for me but Seoul is one of my favorite cities. I'll be sure to check it out this September!
    Loves:
    Florals (especially rose, tuberose, cherry blossom, orange blossom, osmanthus, ylang ylang, immortelle, violet, jasmine, plum blossom, heliotrope, and iris)
    Orientals (especially spicy, woody, and floral orientals)
    Boozy notes
    Chypres (especially with real oakmoss)
    Rich gourmands
    Animalic fragrances
    Great longevity and sillage

    Would at least try it.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    On a side note... Was really expecting trying a samle of Limette San Francisco exclusive - it's really terrible, sour lime from a nursing home) so agree on Hit and Miss with Le Labo

    The Le Labo citruses have been mostly meh, so not harboring any hopes. But who knows.

    Another boring citrus from Le Labo that lasts 30 minutes? Yay!

    Well leave it to Le Labo to call it "Citron" and make it jasmine prominent.

    I've had lots of ads for this popping up on my Instagram.
    I was hoping it would be more citron (yuzu) prominent, but I guess that's pretty typical Le Labo style, failing to make the eponymous note the most prominent one.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.
