Make yourself memorable with Byredo Eau de Parfum 1996, a scent inspired by the unique and individual qualities that make us who we are. Created by Ben Gorham in response to a photograph by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, this scent represents an interpretation of the duality inherent in cross-cultural encounters and cosmopolitan living.

Gorham spent some time traveling in India, where his mother was born, and all his perfumes have a spicy quality. This one is no exception. Byredo Eau de Parfum 1996 opens with notes of black pepper and juniper which instantly mark it out as something distinctive. The romantic aromas of violet and iris root combine with the depth of black amber to alluring effect.

With vanilla to seal the deal, this is a scent nobody could forget.

A complex, spicy and highly distinctive scent inspired by an Inez van Lamsweerde photograph, Byredo Eau de Parfum 1996 is designed to linger in the memory.

1996 Eau de Parfum is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I absolutely love this perfume, reminds me of a church with wooden benches and burning vanilla insense in the background but in a good way, is very comforting and cozy, perfect for the winter. The reason I love it so much is because reminds me of my wedding day more than the actual perfume I used that day. Stayin power is amazing, very strong, one sprits is enough to smell it the whole day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It smells like the 90's for sure This is one of the headier Byredo fragrances. It kind of smells like you are entering the 1990's again. I definitely pick up a freshly whittled wood note, but it mellows out into this lovely scent. This is a memory scent, in that you feel like you are stepping into a snapshot from your past. The first spritz can be a bit overwhelming, so go lightly, but once it settles down and mingles with your own chemistry it forms a bond with your skin that in my case reminds me of long ago days sitting in a bookstore sipping coffee. If you spray too much it will be wasted. Go very lightly with this one and enjoy the timeshift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong The selection of ingredients makes it very interesting and peculiar. It is more niche and probably liked by those who love wood, leather on top of floral notes. It is quite strong and unusual because of the juniper, amber, patchouli. All the ingredients are originally very distinctive in smell, therefore the mix it's a difficult one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Stunning! I bought this Byredo scent without smelling it after reading the reviewBody and loving my other Byredo scents, which was a gamble but so glad I did as it’s absolutely gorgeous! It is a strong fragrance so if you like light scents I would avoid, and has amazing staying power. On me this fragrance dried down fairly quickly to leave a strong vanilla scent which I loved. Never smelt another fragrance like it which I see as a bonus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Strong Fragrance This fragrance is very strong, with a powerful Patchouli note. The scent opens with an almost dry textured Juniper note, which slowly involves into incense and leather, followed by patchouli. The fragrance is long lasting on my skin, and can last days on fabrics. This is an unusual fragrance, and one I'd definitely recommend trying before committing to buy a large bottle.
