I was browsing around Barney’s online beauty department, and the pretty packaging and design of Byredo Parfums immediately caught my eye. And then, the names of the perfumes were enough to keep me intrigued. With monikers like ‘Palermo,’ ‘Seven Veils,’ and ‘Gypsy Water,’ how could you not be curious as to what each of these smell like? I loved looking around the Barney’s and Byredo sites and imagining which scent I’d like best. Next time I’m in Union Square, I’m definitely stopping in Barney’s to give each of these a little test drive; in the meantime, I’ve been daydreaming about which scents I’d wear for which occasion. Blanche for daytime, certainly; Rose Noir for a hot date, definitely.
