DIY fashion and beauty web show Look TV has popped up on Racked before, like when they dropped by the Clare Vivier boutique in Silver Lake for a tour. Recently, they filmed a visit to Le Labo's West 3rd Street shop where host Heather Taylor creates a personalized scent. After viewing the video, we realized why those pretty little Le Labo bottles are so pricey—fancy ingredients are blended right then and there to each customer's specifications. Watch, above, for lots of fragrance talk and the right way to apply perfume (no smearing!).
