Le Labo — 296 West 4th Street

This entirely vegan perfumery makes each of its fragrances by hand at its in-store laboratory. Le Labo’s founders, Fabrice Penot and Eddie Roschi, created the company in Grasse, the town considered the world capital of perfume, on the French Riviera, but “raised the brand in New York.” They wanted to “start a revolution,” choosing not to advertise or keep any of their stock on the shelf, preferring to bottle each scent personally for every customer in their workshop.
