Associate, Creative Operations - Le Labo Fragrances

Company: Estee Lauder
Location: Brooklyn
Posted on: June 12, 2021

Job Description:

Le Labo fragrances was born in Grasse (France), raised in New York (USA) and offers artisanal genderless scented creations (fine perfumery, home fragrance as well as formulas for body, hair, and face). Le Labo stands for "the lab" in French: Each of our boutiques function like an open laboratory designed as an entertainment park for the senses where people can take the time to smell and touch raw ingredients in order to awaken their olfactory system and trigger emotions. We freshly hand-blend our fragrances on site, to the order and each label is personalized with the date and place of the formulation as well as a message chosen by our client.

Creating soulful Beauty with Care through our craft of slow perfumery is the heartbeat of our company. We work with a community of craftspeople who shape our world: the flower harvesters, the local family farms, the candle hand-pourers, the reclaimed wood artisans, the lab technicians etc. Joining Le Labo means joining a scented Revolution initiated 15 years ago as the antidote to mainstream fragrances and conventional marketing approaches. Being able to nurture our "small" roots and artisanal ethos while scaling our actions to become "big" and reach more people is our current balancing act for which we need support.
