Haute Scents – Byredo Parfums

Posted on 08 September 2010

September invites a fresh feeling of new smells, crisp cool days and the ideal time to start using a fashionable scent. As the calendar closes down on the lazy Summer and makes way for hardworking Autumn, it seems appropriate to invest a little extra in a few great seasonal scents. Rather than purchasing one perfume for the season, why not purchase a set to match with various outfits and moods? Stockholm based company, Byredo Parfums has an inspiring set which features five diverse scents, appropriately called “I Married Adventure”. Interestingly, each fragrance tells a unique story of a diverse origin remembering India, Africa and parts of Europe. With five different choices in sleek 30ml sized bottles you’re sure to find the perfect scent to match to usher you into the Fall and Winter seasons.

A vivacious if not somewhat masculine scent inspired by Africa, blending together the perfect balance of exotic florals including African Marigold. The scent includes top notes of Bergamot, Lemon, Neroli African Marigold, Bucchu and mid notes of Violet, Jasmine, Cyclamen while the base features Black Amber Musk Vetiver and Cedar

Another sexy parfum that stradles the line of feminine and masculine inspired by India with top notes of Bergamot, Lemon, Elimi and mid notes of Ginger, Temple Incense, Nutmeg with a base of Labdanum, Amber and Musk.

How can you not love a scent called “Gypsy Water”. Inspired by the gypsy lifestyle of the Romany people of Europe (who incidentally can trace their heritage back to India), Gypsy Water is best worn on those days when you’re feeling free spirited in your attitude and style of dress. Top Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Pepper, Juniper Berries. Mid notes: Incense, Pine Needles, Orris. Base notes: Amber, Vanilla, Sandalwood.

No, Pulp is not a perfume inspired by singer Jarvis Cocker, it’s a sweet and flowery scent inspired by Sweden and an international fruit basket. Top notes include: Bergamot, Cardamom, Blackcurrant. Mid: Fig, Red Apple, Tiare. Base: Cedar Wood, Praline, Peach Flower. Pulp has a scent that smells like a hybrid of strength and vulnerability all in one sleek bottle.

Rose Noir embodies love and devotion by using the traditional scent of roses (Rose Damascena) as it’s mid base while the top notes feature Grapefruit, Freesia and a base of Citrus Moss and Musk.  Rose Noir seems to be inspired by an English Rose garden -at night.
