Byredo is a fragrance suitable for both women and men. Byredo was launched in 2016. The nose behind this fragrance is Jerome Epinette. Top notes are Pink Pepper and Gin; middle notes are Violet and Orris Root; base notes are Balsam Fir and Oakmoss.
On top of that, Byredo is an absolute stunner of a scent- minimalist, enveloping, atmospheric, sparkling, calming, optimistic, crisp, dry, and contemporary. And it tastes rather than smells. Unnamed fits all things Scandi as expected from Byredo- clean design lines, always self-assured yet respectful attitude, and wearing crisp genderless Nordic fashion labels. In addition, the concept is not hard to get- the sun peeking through the ice flowers grown on the frozen window. Byredo scent is a perfectly clean canvas that you can paint your own personality and experience from zero.
In short, Byredo scent initial opening brings on the taste of peppery and herbal gin & fancy fizzy floral tonic with a stem of rosemary and some cranberries in an ice-filled frozen glass with powdered sugar being sieved on top. To accompany the drink, you're handed a bowl of colorful jelly beans. A weird visual image perhaps, but the start of the scent is really strong and vivid: slightly acidic dry earthy powdered sugar and lots of ice. But it's not Juniper Sling.
The development is seamless- in an hour the violet is full-on and the experience has turned fluffy and powdery whilst still feeling extremely clean and fresh. Now it paints an unusual taste of real violet petals in sugar my friend once brought back as a treat from Vienna. This phase is for those who are addicted to Guerlain Meteorites powder pearls. It appears also like deconstructed minimalist l'Heure Bleue that's stripped from all other florals and dense base.
On top of that, Byredo's scent is pretty fresh and cool, it can easily make your other stronger and dirtier scents feel slightly vulgar when applied afterward. The dry down is the most beautiful clean slightly musky luxurious bedroom scent: crisp 5* Egyptian cotton sheets, fluffy pillows, and a breakfast tray with champagne. I really love this scent.
For me, the scent is quite feminine- the sugar content is there. It's also appropriate for all seasons, although probably shines more in winter/ early spring because of iciness. Byredo also surprisingly long-lasting 6-7 hours and well projecting. This Byredo is a bit ahead of its time, presenting violet as happy serene, and contemporary. If you love the violet scent, this is something you should go for it!
In short, in the first spray, I get a strong burst of pink pepper with the gin, but it's REFRESHING & not overbearing. Then, 3-5 minutes pass the delicious, powdery violet emerges amidst the pepper (but the pepper doesn't disappear) When the time goes on...the oakmoss & fir are very light but the gin, pepper, violet are still the primary scents on my skin. It's feminine, masculine... spicy-sweet woodsy floral. It's naughty and nice but in a classy way. What do u think?
