The fragrances created at Laboratory Perfumes often start with a single aroma. In Samphire’s case, it was a young leaf of verbena plucked from a friend’s garden on a spring afternoon. The scent was so arrestingly fresh, they decided to find a way to capture its zesty rush for our third fragrance.
They crushed a sprig of that verbena with a pinch of juniper berries from the spice rack – and Samphire began to take shape. Moving from the kitchen to the lab, the brand blended in citrus oil, flourishes of lavender, basil and rosemary, and base notes of white amber and oak moss to create a bright, cool, aromatic scent with a lightness of touch that belies its complexity and longevity on the skin. The finished scent was so clearly evocative of the seashore, it could only be called Samphire.
“The chic, minimal packaging hints at its chemistry-set roots while the scent is clean, natural and highly addictive. Move over Love Potion No. 9...” – House and Garden
