How to Use

Spray Gabar 03 Swim eau de parfum onto your skin, into your clothing or in the environment around you, day or night, for a long lasting scent. Traditionally fragrance is focused on pulse points such as the neck, decolletage or wrists, but these notes can be sprayed anywhere that suits. This is a fragrance to inspire and motivate.

Sustainability & Ethics

Our philosophy will always remain: to do no harm. From box to bottle, every Gabar product is 98% recyclable, using cork, wood, glass, or paper in place of plastic and other non-recyclables. The result is a natural one -- and may result in a beautifully bent or out of shape package. We appreciate your partnership, as our practice for a sustainable future is ever-evolving and constantly in motion. And of course, we are vegan-friendly and never test on animals.

What Others Are Saying

5 stars

Gabar’s avant-garde offering takes you on a journey into the Myanmarese jungle. Its tonka heart finds shade under a luscious canopy of galbanum and fig, grounded in a masculine cedar bark base. A novel arrangement that envelops the senses, No III Swim is named in line with the founder's philosophy of curating fragrances that inspire “conscious presence.” Swim invites you to imagine a dip under a rainforest waterfall; Ground and Float in Gabar’s wider collection encourage your mind to wander elsewhere. More than just a tonka fragrance, its storied scent offers aromatherapy. Spray this whenever the day calls for a moment’s meditation.

You'll find no synthetic aquatic notes here; Instead, verdant green hills and dewy fields after rain burst out of this fresh and airy scent from Gabar, sweetened slightly with fruity notes of fig before grounding you with cedar, amber and musk.

5 stars

Gabar is truly deserving of the approval. As far from cookie-cutter as you can get, each of the three scents delivers a unique, hyper-realistic trail. Swim, with creamy fig, green tea and galbanum, captures the crystalline waters of the brand’s verdant hometown.

5 stars

If you're a fan of complex fragrances, you need to get into the world of Gabar. Their first line of fragrances is all about mindfulness and capturing the moment. Our pick of the bunch is No. III Swim, which bursts of fresh bright notes of blackcurrant bud and wild fig with the gentle hum of amber in the distance. A true masterpiece.

5 stars

The lush, rich greens of the jungle region of Hpa-An, Myanmar influenced the scent of this perfume. Notes of blackcurrant bud and wild fig meet a mossy base of cedarwood and amber. This perfume intends to uplift you and take you to a dreamscape where flora and fauna abound.

5 stars

Full of fig and jasmine, this fragrance is summer in a bottle. It packs a punch – but not in an overbearing way – so expect it to linger on your skin and in the air for some time. Added amber and cedarwood give it warmth, but there’s no denying this is a scent for those who love florals. Finally, patchouli and tonka add a fresh, green touch.

5 stars

Imagine you’ve grabbed your fig and taken it into a forest. Moss pads your footsteps, blackcurrant buds punctuating the greenery around you, a little rain dripping through a canopy of leaves. That’s where you’re eating this fig — and that’s the moment this scent captures.

5 stars

Why this is a Vogue top pick: If you’re yet to try one of Gabar’s scents, you’re in for a treat. Inspired by the brand’s Southeast Asian heritage (it was established in Myanmar), the range is completely unique and entirely addictive; from the spiciness of No.II Ground to the floral notes of No.I Float. Our current favourite? Swim III – a fresh and green fragrance with depth, thanks to woody notes of sandalwood and cedar, plus a sensual hit of musk. Consider it a year-round staple.
