THESE LE LABO TEES ARE GREAT FOR TRAVEL AND GIFTING
Here’s a dilemma everyone is all too familiar with: In the hectic rush through the airport, or in the Uber trying to get to your destination, you realize that perhaps you don’t smell so great. Look, we’ve all been there. But now there’s an elegant—and fashionable—solution. Hiro Clark’s No Shower T-shirts, which are infused with Le Labo’s popular scent Santal 33. The fragrance microcapsules are actually woven into the fabric of the tees, to insure that the notes of Australian sandalwood, cardamom, iris, and violet stay fresh and potent for up to 6 washes.
“We are pushing the myth about the French and not washing a little further by dipping Hiro Clark’s tees into Le Labo’s Santal 33 and seeing how long this can last!” said Le Labo cofounder Fabrice Penot. “As Napoleon wrote to Joséphine from the battlefield: ‘Don’t wash, I return in three days’—kind of 19th-century sexting. Imagine how sexy she would have been by opening the door only wearing a dirty Santal 33 Hiro Clark tee?”
Hiro Clark founder Andy Salzer sees the tees not only as a play on Le Labo’s French heritage, but as a continuation of his brand’s effortless, California lifestyle. “We wanted to create something cool and easy—pick it up off the floor. Throw it on, and you’re out the door,” Salzer said. “I wear Santal 33 everyday. It’s natural that my tees would too.”
The tops come in a variety of colors and prints, like a graphic smoke design or a black tee reading “disappear here.” We get the wanderlust spirit of that design, but it will be pretty hard to disappear when you smell as good as Santal 33—even if you haven’t showered in days.
