201LAB (read as “ni-maru-ichi lab”) by ART LAB. CO., LTD. is a shop project created by the fragrance maker ART LAB. in Kyoto. to let visitors experience the world of fragrances. ART LAB CO., LTD. has continued to provide proposals for fragrance-filled lifestyles.

We have once again searched for just what it is we can offer. The result of this being the realization that rather than just making and selling products ourselves, we can offer proposals for how to enjoy fragrances - something already heavily influenced by personal taste - that better align with one’s individual preferences as well as how to use these in a way fitting with a sustainable lifestyle free from waste and excess.

The first step in this venture was the opening of our 201LAB in autumn of 2015.
The numbers 201 are a play on the Japanese word “nioi,” meaning “smell.” They are also the numbers for a bus route that circles the center of the city of Kyoto in every direction.

LAB is a research facility for fragrances. We selected this name out of our desire for fragrances to be something that brings both people and the objects that surround them together.
