Description

Le Labo Gaiac 10 is one of the City Exclusive scents from Le Labo, and it is only available in Tokyo, except every couple of years when Le Labo makes their City Exclusives available everywhere for a month.  Gaiac is an incredibly addictive scent - your skin but better.   It is comforting and snuggly and warm and a little mesmerizing in how subtly it does all those things while staying right on the edge of your awareness.  It is a really gorgeous fragrance.

A truly memorable and great scent. To try it now, then mark your calendar for the fall, and you can get a bottle from Le Labo! Allegedly Glossier You (Fragrance Foundation Award!) was based on Le Labo Gaiac 10.  

The perfumer is Annick Menardo, it was launched in 2008, andthe notes are gaiac, cedar, four different musks and olibanum. 

Reviews of Le Labo Gaiac 10

From The Cut - "Then I smelled it: a blend of soft cedar, gaiac wood (a form of palo santo), incense, and the velvety texture of laundry detergent. It was mysterious, intoxicating, intimate. I couldn’t stop hungrily sniffing my wrist after putting it on. It was like nothing I’d ever smelled."

From Byrdie - "it's primarily a woody fragrance, but to me, it mimics the aroma of clean skin, with a touch of sweet incense. It's incredibly alluring in an understated, intimate way—like burying your face in someone's neck. It's the holy grail of "naked" fragrances; the kind of scent I want someone to remember me by."

From Perfume Posse - "Peppy and happy on the open, it sifts down into woody incense that is like settling into your favorite woods where you have always been at home and happy.  I gave one spritz of this on my neck Sunday when we went to the symphony, and that tiny spritz lasted all day, all night and was still going strong on Monday morning until I hit the showers, enveloping me in lush smelly comfort.  It feels, I don’t know, authentic?  It doesn’t veer off into churchy like the woody incense of Armani’s Bois d’Encens or a couple of the CdG incense series. It’s slightly milky maybe.  There’s a smoothness to the wood that makes it feel like polished, beautiful wood, impossibly elegant, but warm and snuggly."

From Basenotes - "Gaiac 10 is an uncomplicated, diaphanous scent of woods, olibanum and musks. It is reserved to the point of self-effacement, yet endures for days. While very much in the vein of Mark Buxton's compositions for Comme des Garçons, it is probably closest to Antoine Lie's Wonderwood for the Japanese line – a kind of Wonderwood soaked in milk. It sweetens as it dries, with occasional murmurs of the oily and the floral, and it comes to smell like the sweetly musky halo of a newborn. Tender, affecting, and as innocent as its exclusivity is cruel."

    Both my husband and I wear this fragrance. Frankly it's on the top of the list of my husbands favorite scents to wear, and he has many to choose from! Very calming, serene meditative and addicting! It reminds me very much of entering the gorgeous wood constructed Japanese Temples.

    An airy scent in which all the best qualities are too dilute, and the not-so-great qualities seem to be amplified. The good parts involve the smell of bone-dry planks of cedar rolled in crushed black peppercorns. Yummy. The bad parts include a marijuana accord. When I wore this, I was asked by at least three different people if I had just gotten high.
