Laboratorio Olfattivo is one of those under the radar artistic perfumeries that always has my attention when they announce a new release. Founded by Roberto Drago in 2009 and based outside Rome, the brand essentially, as the name suggests functions as a laboratory for olfactory work. ‘It is an artistic workshop in constant ferment, energised by perfume artists who work in total freedom, without any constraints on their creativity’…Patchouliful and Kashnoir are two favorites; both created by Cecile Zarokian. Sgr Drago announced the debut of a thematic collection of fragrances: “Laboratorio in Fiore”, inspired by flowers that connote the sun. The first two fragrances, Nun and MyLO, are created in collaboration with Luca Maffei of Atelier Fragranze Milano.
