| British scent specialists Laboratory Perfumes was founded by Aaron Firth in 2011. Having worked as a menswear retailer for many years, and become disillusioned by how transient fashion had become, Aaron wanted to create something more permanent. The appeal of fragrance was not only its longevity, but the way a scent manages to be both personal and invisible.
Laboratory Perfumes is run by Aaron and a small, dedicated team based in London.
They are all proud of the fact that everything they create is as sustainable as possible. Back in 2011, it was necessity rather than foresight that dictated they sourced all their ingredients and packaging components within a 130 mile radius of their home (they couldn’t afford to go anywhere else), but today they still make sure they do away with anything unnecessary, keep the supply chain small, and produce everything in accordance with the same Hippocratic principle underpinning modern medicine: ‘First, do no harm’.
At Laboratory Perfumes, they try to look after the world. After all, it’s where both the inspiration and the ingredients for their fragrances come from. They know that by creating and selling scents and candles they're not going to save the planet, but they work hard to ensure that they do the least damage possible.
