The Estee Lauder Companies Coordinator, Global Product Development in Brooklyn, New York
Coordinator, Global Product Development
Brand: Le Labo
Le Labo is a niche perfume company, born in Grasse and raised in New York City. We sparked a revolution ten years ago and today, we remain unconventional in the luxury perfume market. Every fragrance is freshly hand-blended and each label is personalized on-site, at the moment of purchase. Mindful in everything we do – from fragrance creations to where we choose to open a new boutique – our primary mission is to share the beauty of our craft with the world. It is more than just product; Le Labo offers sensorial experiences, memories and a point of view. It is a lifestyle.
Our distribution is intentionally selective with only 30 lab-boutiques worldwide and limited counters within a curated selection of retail partners. Our global office is based in Williamsburg, New York and our European office is based in Shoreditch, London. We are also a recent addition to the Estée Lauder family.
Le Labo is currently experiencing a very rare and special moment in a brand.
We are fortunate enough to be growing and expanding our cult following at an exponential rate and we would like to adapt and scale our internal organization accordingly. It is paramount during this growth period, that we preserve the values of our unique business model and mission: slow perfumery, man-made approach and mindfulness in everything we do.
