“You walk through woods wet with spray and alive. Your fingertips, the tendrils of a fern, reach into the deep foliage, dissolve into the infinite. Why do you travel to where the sun shakes your hand? What good is devotion if it cannot combine body, land, sea, sky into equal parts loneliness and love? Lie down and rest here. And be made whole.”
This is the pitch behind Hossegor, one of the most original and compelling oceanic scents we’ve experienced in quite some time. Inspired by the resort town deep in the south of France, an unforgettable pairing of beachside surfer’s paradise and a lush marine lake, Hossegor the scent delivers a bracing, invigorating, and ultimately deeply soothing combination of mineral, herbaceous, woodsy, and aromatic notes that tap into a near-primal sense of sublimity. From a compellingly spicy, green, and herbaceous opening of fiery black pepper and resinous mastic to a rich aromatic heart of sage and oceanic sea salt, every note feels powerful yet balanced, naturalistic yet stylish, and glowing with the tempered warmth of the glowing sun setting over the rapidly cooling, tree-lined lakeside. A Lab On Fire has chased the sun everywhere from Ipanema to the South Pacific, but with Hossegor, they may have found their best destination yet.
