Account Executive, Le Labo - East Coast
Brand: Le Labo
ABOUT THE COMPANY:
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 perfumery market.
Every fragrance is freshly hand-blended and each label is personalized, before the eyes of our clients, 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: only few lab-boutiques worldwide and limited counters with curated partners.
Our global office is based in New York City and our European office is based in London. We are also a recent addition to the Estée Lauder family.
