Anyone who’s navigated the vibrant hustle and bustle of Mumbai streets with be transported back in seconds with this scent. The haze of incense and sandalwood is broken by notes of sweet tonka bean, bitter coffee and davana. It’s warm, it’s spicy, it’s a moment and a memory in a fragrance.

ByredoYoung Rose Eau de Parfum, $200.00
If You Like Classic Scents With A Twist…
If you love those classic and ever so slightly powdery rose fragrances, Byredo's Young Rose could be worth exploring. With a sprinkling of Sichuan pepper, the floral and musky notes are given a fresh modern twist that will have people asking what fragrance you're wearing.
ByredoBlack Saffron Eau de Parfum, $200.00
If You Like Warm, Exotic Scents…
As the name suggests, Black Saffron is a rich, punchy scent that's packed full of notes, including leather accord, black violet, rose, raspberry and vetiver. It's warm, it's welcoming and it's bold.
ByredoLil Fleur Eau De Parfum, $190.00
If You Like Uplifting Rose Scents…
The latest offering from the brand has a nostalgic feel to it. Centred around damascus rose, it is peppered with notes that played starring roles in some of our favourite teenage scents, including uplifting tangerine and cassis, as well as vanilla. With hints of saffron and leather notes, it is a far cry from classic jammy, rose scents. If you want to take a walk down memory lane, this is definitely the most tasteful, sophisticated route to take.
ByredoGypsy Water Eau de Parfum, $200.00
If You Like Light, Fresh Scents…
This is Byredo’s signature scent and it has a loyal celebrity following (both Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Sienna Miller have revealed they wear it). Immediately after spritzing you’re hit with light, zesty notes of lemon and bergamot before the scent dries down and the woody pine notes come through. The result is a clean, fresh and incredibly wearable scent.
ByredoSundazed Eau de Parfum, $200.00
If You Like Juicy, Citrus Scents…
Unofficially called ‘summer in a bottle’, this perfume was made for those who love the refreshing, zingy scent of lemons and mandarins intertwined with sun-drenched jasmine. While the addition of cotton candy gives this citrus scent a dose of sweetness, it is by no means cloying thanks to the addition of neroli which helps to rebalance the freshness.
ByredoUnnamed Eau de Parfum, $240.00
If You Like Powdery, Parma Violet-Esque Scents…
Another incredibly popular scent (and not just because you can name it yourself), this powdery blend of iris and violets is reminiscent of the childhood sweets. Yet, the clever burst of gin notes and lingering woody notes prevent this fragrance from feeling old fashioned or heavy. This is the kind of perfume that will have people asking what you’re wearing.
ByredoVelvet Haze Eau de Parfum, $196.00
If You Like Creamy, Musk Scents…
While some get a whiff of creamy coconut, for others this is reminiscent of fresh laundry. Inspired by the heady aromas of the swinging 1960s, Velvet Haze is a modern take on classic musk fragrances. Carefully balanced with hibiscus, tuberose and coconut, the musk and patchouli melt into your skin to offer a lighter, more wearable take on a classic fragrance.
