GORSE – Laboratory Perfumes

gorse amber


What do you get when you marry low key, clean design with the scent of a British summer in the countryside? Gorse, of course! Awfully British and terribly modern, Gorse by London brand Laboratory Perfumes is a snapshot of  seaside moorland, a whisper of summer in deepest winter and easy to fall in love with.

If GORSE No.002 is the more feminine of the two (a cloud of barely there coconut, with just a hint of sweet spice, a touch of citrus and the freshness of a green summer), then AMBER No. 001 is rich and balmy like dripping caramel. Woody, comforting and with green spicy top notes.

Modern yet refreshingly romantic in an understated way, Gorse is one of our favourite fragrances of 2012 – it’s an absolute original and it’s one of those scents that will get people asking what you’re wearing. Loving the recyclable beaker candle below…

  1. This stuff smells AMAZING! Plus the packaging is a stand out from all the rest out there. Loving the chemistry measure cups for candles & the deep warm amber scent. Guess the Gorse one is kept safe for spring.
