Fans of Le Labo's City Exclusive collection can grab them out of their origin cities for a limited time

Cult fragrance brand Le Labo is known for its intoxicating and original scents and for doing things their own way — you won't see any celebrity endorsements and the typical nondescript fruity floral scents in their line-up.

Instead, one of their most popular projects is their City Exclusives, with a scent designed to represent nine different cities from Tokyo to Moscow. There's nothing gimmicky about these quietly luxe fragrances — they're all housed in sleek and minimalist glass bottles and even the interpretation of these scents are abstract.

San Francisco: Limette 37 for example, doesn't smell like the fog over the Golden Gate Bridge, but rather is an 'olfactive roller coaster' that has a freshness and cleanliness that captures the city's gorgeous hills and bays. While Dubai: Cuir 28 is a sexy blend of leather, wood and an animalistic vanilla note that gives in an Oriental twist. 

If you're a perfume aficionado or you like collecting and wearing unique scents, you have a chance to buy one outside their namesake cities — where they are exclusively sold — just for a month at Le Labo boutiques worldwide and online. In Singapore, they'll be available at Escentials. Trust us, you'll want a sniff. 

$454. From 1-30 September
