Inspired by this trip, BYREDO's scented candles and perfumes have been developed with an understated approach, using simple composition of the highest quality raw materials.

Divine scent. This is not what I expected at all, but I am blown away by it each time I reverently spray it on my wrist.
I confess that I blind-bought it having not been able to test it out anywhere. The notes sounded so appealing to me, and I was willing to take the risk. Phew! I do actually adore it. I get the boozy jam note other reviewers mentioned, and the opening is similar to JM's Velvet Rose and Oud (for a few seconds). Then it becomes a very powerful sweet scent for about half an hour, before it calms down to a smoky, milky skin scent.
It's certainly unusual. Despite the intense sweetness at the beginning, I cannot imagine this on a teenage girl; I'm in my early twenties and I barely get away with it. It's a mature sweetness due the smoky, tobacco-like notes underneath, and refuses to be linear. Each time I sniff my wrists or down my jumper, I get a new note. I imagine this perfume will change wildly with the seasons or depending on your skin chemistry. If you are looking for a safe, functional, every day perfume then you definitely need to test this first. It's not your typical power-house workday perfume, but could make for a striking signature if you can pull it off! I usually think of perfumes such as these as more artistic concepts, like unusually cut clothes and bizarre jewellery that look breath-taking, but you're not sure if you personally can wear it!
It doesn't smell like a library (while we can enjoy the smell of old books and wood varnish, it's probably not what we want to smell on ourselves or other humans), but it does conjure up the aesthetic of a well-read, scholarly woman who wears romantic blouses and pleated trousers, keeps her hair styled in an artfully messy up-do, carelessly applies flawless red lipstick... She probably smokes as well. But this is my impression, and as this strikes me as such a changeable fragrance, I would be fascinated as to how it develops on other women and men!
Definitely not a safe blind buy, but in this case my gamble paid off! The dry down on me is subtle, but casually powerful. After three spritzes (both wrists and neck) yesterday morning, I was still cocooned in sultry softness when I woke up today.

This is so, so gorgeous. The smell is warm and sweet, unusual without being overpowering. It's very feminine because of the sweetness, but the warmth and low tones mean it would be fine for a man as well. The packaging is super chic, the lid has a magnetic closure which feels expensive and secure. I love the concept behind the scent, it really does evoke all those feelings. I've had several compliments on this, which is the true test of a scent for me. 100% my new 'best' fragrance!

This Byredo scent is really beautiful, as are all Byredo scents in my opinion.
It isn’t too heavy but still has a lot of depth to it that develops as you wear it, has real lasting power also.
If you like Black Saffron, Slow Dance then I would say definitely look at this one!

I am a lover of heavy, masculine smells and this one really fits the bill. Lasts forever, can constantly smell this on my clothes throughout the day. Really interesting smell and do not know another fragrance similar. Smells just like the candle which is equally lovely.

I was gifted this perfume for Christmas and have literally worn it every day since. A little goes a long way with this scent and it lasts all day as I’ve been complimented well into the day after spritzing it in the morning. I love the nostalgic smell of old books it gives off as well as the sweetness. It may not be for everyone, so it’s worth giving it a sniff in store if you can but I really love it!
