The World According to Byredo

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.

    I’m very scent sensitive–I tend to get a lot of headaches, especially with floral scents, so it’s a treat to find something that I can actually wear! I feel like one of these might actually work!

      I’m the same way. I find perfumes that are made from distilled floral and plant
      essences don’t bother me as much as purely synthetic fragrances. Chanel still
      uses mostly flowers so it’s always okay! :)

      You should check out Strange Invisible Perfumes too. 100% botanical derived.

    I was just thinking how glamorous it’d be if I treated myself to a new scent for the season…and these descriptions are decadent! I’m such a sucker for lovely wording =)

    I have Pulp and it has quickly become my favorite everyday scent.
