Sample Vial - Laboratory Perfumes Samphire EDT
“The chic, minimal packaging hints at its chemistry-set roots while the scent is clean, natural and highly addictive. Move over Love Potion No. 9...”
– House and Garden
A pinch of spicy juniper berries, citrus oil and an intoxicating trio of lavender, rosemary and basil, join verbena to layer over white amber and oak moss to culminate in an Eau de Toilette that evokes the fresh coastal air. The fragrances created at Laboratory Perfumes often start with a single aroma. In Samphire’s case, it was a young leaf of verbena plucked from a friend’s garden on a spring afternoon. The scent was so arrestingly fresh, Laboratory Perfumes decided to find a way to capture its zesty rush for our third fragrance.
Laboratory Perfumes crushed a sprig of that verbena with a pinch of juniper berries from the spice rack – and Samphire began to take shape. Moving from the kitchen to the lab, they blended in citrus oil, flourishes of lavender, basil and rosemary, and base notes of white amber and oak moss to create a bright, cool, aromatic scent with a lightness of touch that belies its complexity and longevity on the skin. The finished scent was so clearly evocative of the seashore it could only be called Samphire. Made in the UK.

Since 2012 Laboratory Perfumes have been careful to minimise the environmental impact of their products through local supply, recycled packaging and natural ingredients. Now Laboratory Perfumes are delighted to say that they are now a carbon neutral company. In 2021 Laboratory Perfumes calculated their carbon emissions, reduced them where they could and offset any emissions which were unavoidable. Then, they looked back over the previous years and retrospectively offset all carbon emissions made since the company started.
In recognition of the carbon impact of Laboratory Perfumes operations, they are now investing in a UK woodland creation project called Talla & Gameshope that will capture CO2 and benefit the environment through a variety of means, from climate mitigation to flood alleviation, water quality improvements, habitat creation and cleaner air. Trees such as alder, juniper, rowan and willow will also provide a natural, diverse environment for wildlife.
Every year Laboratory Perfumes carbon footprint will be calculated and shall be offset accordingly. The natural world has played a huge role in inspiring each of Laboratory Perfumes' scents; and Laboratory Perfumes shall do everything in their power to protect and preserve it.
Established in London in 2012, Laboratory Perfumes is a niche fragrance house that create unique, evocative fragrances that are crafted from environmentally-friendly and cruelty-free ingredients. Inspired by the natural flowers, herbs and aromatic botanicals of Britain, as well as trips to the south of France and the mountains of Morocco, the range of scents and candles are carefully crafted in a laboratory to react to the wearer and evolve during the day. It’s a new way of making perfume the old-fashioned way. The scents created by Laboratory Perfumes don’t dictate age, origin or gender. They allow your journey to remain your own.
