Limited edition, and only available in US. Available at The Met Store, Le Labo NYC boutiques, and online.
Le Labo and The Met have joined together to create a special-edition candle, harmonizing the visual arts and fine fragrance through a shared appreciation of subtle beauty.
We chose a quieter painting for this collaboration, a 1908 study for “Underneath the Cork Oaks” by Henri-Edmond Cross. We were drawn to the enchanting imperfections of this unfinished piece, and the way the artist felt an urge to capture a fleeting moment, fixing it forever in time.
Accompanying this work is Laurier 62, a hand-poured candle that has no fewer than 62 ingredients – some complementing each other, some contrasting – culminating into a beautiful, chaotic mess.
Study for Underneath the Cork Oaks (detail), ca. 1908. Henri-Edmond Cross (Henri-Edmond Delacroix).
Bequest of Gregoire Tarnopol, 1979, and Gift of Alexander Tarnopol, 1980
