Cute base scent

I love this! You can put on more and make it a heavier floral evening scent, or just the base for light floral every day wear. This is the second scent I got out of three I have now! I love that the descriptions really tell you how they smell, I have never been surprised when receiving them or not got the scent I wanted. The tin is really pretty and fits perfectly in a bag or wallet, so much more convenient that bringing a whole perfume bottle like I used to! And I can put it all over my neck and chest without worrying that the chemicals will dry my skin- it feels like moisturiser!! If you're considering trying Naratie Lab do it! I got the sample pack first because I wasn't sure- a worthwhile investment check it out if you're not 100% If you know the scent you like then I would say go for it without!

what an amazing product, both aesthetically and scent-wise!

I came across Narrative Lab when I was doing some searching on men's grooming products. After discovering that they had a sample scent pack to mail out for a minimal amount of money, I figured "what the heck, why not." Even after getting the sample scent pack in the mail, I was still confused. I decided to send a text message to the phone number listed on the website, asking for some assistance. I thought I'd even include the fragrance I use on a daily basis, as well as what I'd use if I had to dress up. Joel, a member of the Narrative Lab team, truly went above and beyond what he had to do. He compared scent notes on the brands I provided, and even suggested scents within the Narrative Lab range that were similar to them. He even helped me further by giving me a bundle code, so that I could get on my Narrative Lab journey. Long story short, I received both the Awaken and Take the Moment bundles, but with two sets of Awaken refills. A quick email explaining the situation (where I stated that I was more than happy to send a refill back), I was assured that I could keep the second refill, and Jarryd (another member from Narrative Lab) would send out the refill for Take the Moment. Such amazing service, coupled with an amazing aesthetic for the scent case. Win win in my opinion! And all by an Australian based company too! I'm definitely recommending this product to my mates!

A workbag essential!

I recently bought a Narrative for my partner as an anniversary gift. She loved it, and has gotten many compliments from co-workers. She won’t leave home without it — I think it’s time for me to get one too!

Amazing presentation, quality and packaging. Fragrance itself is excellent, scent is so noticeable and pleasant. I highly recommend it and can't wait to get more myself. Thank you for personalised note, it makes it even more special

Happiness Is !!!

I absolutely love my Narrative Fragrance. I am so excited that I finally found a solid that I can take on my travels. Can’t wait to try another one. Wishing you every success!!!!

Awaken review

Love the packaging and the scent. The container is quite heavy and can be noisy.

Love this!

I initially ordered Crushing It, but the scent wasn't for me. After contacting Narrative Lab they sent me Awaken (at no extra cost) to try. It was perfect! I have a very sensitive nose, and traditional perfumes give me headaches. Highly recommend the product and the service, and I hope when I've finished this one, I can send the tin back for refilling - less waste :)

The package was extremely stylish and the fragrance amazing. What I would suggest could improve is the strength of the fragrance as it is not as strong on my wrist/ neck etc than perfumes therefore other's can't notice how lovely it is.

Service was exceptional, personalised with a speedy delivery time frame. The product is great and draws many complements and people asking about the product. It’s a winner.

So sophisticated!

Beautiful fragrance. Sophisticated design. Perfect size for my handbag. Love it!

Awoken by Awaken

From the minute the courier knocked on the door the vessel hasn’t left my side. I loved unpacking the beautiful box, remembering why I spoilt myself. The subtle scent over the base stayed with me all day and then I added a layer of intensity before dinner with friends. They saw me apply and instantly wanted what I had. It’s a hit and I’ve already ordered my second scent..... well really my fourth as Awaken gives me 3 sense in one!

L L LOVE my new solid perfume. It felt very special opening such a beautifully packaged product and holding the vessel I could tell it was a quality product. I put some of the base on both my wrists and the scent lasted all day and wasn’t greasy or oily like my old solid perfumes are. I’m a convert and I’ve already purchased my second scent. I can’t wait to take it away with me next week and not have to have a hassle at checkin for carrying liquid.

Best new perfume company on the block

Loved the fragrance! The way you can customise your own smell is very cool - very simple and the different ones you can create are all amazing. Keep up the great work - will be back for a refill once this is done!
