Fragrances 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, Laboratory perfumes decided to find a way to capture its zesty rush for their third fragrance.

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, 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 they could only call it Samphire.

    My BIG eco-aware question: is the candle made of beeswax, soy or toxic paraffin?!
