Byredo

BYREDO was founded in 2006 by Ben Gorham. Ben began to be intrigued by scent and memory after travelling to his mother's hometown in India, where he was stirred by the aromas of spices and incense. 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.

Black Saffron - Eau de Parfum

Saffron, the spice derived from the dried stigmas of the Saffron Crocus, has been cultivated for more than 3500 years and remains one of the world’s costliest substances. With it’s beautiful, intense golden-orange color and hay-like scent it has been used as a seasoning, dye, medicine and fragrance. It is holy to all Hindus, is the color of Buddhist robes and has become a symbol for India. BYREDO’s ‘Black Saffron’ is a fragrance inspired by this very idea of sublime unity.

The Eau de Parfum opens with the bright citrus note of the Asian pomelo and crisp juniper berries, mellowed into silage by Kashmiri saffron. At the heart lies black violet fused with leather accord. At the base, blond woods add radiant warmth and harmony, punctuated by luscious raspberry. The base is dominated by with the gentle, earthy evocations of haitian vetiver.

    Inflorescence - Eau de Parfum

    $ 4.00

    To celebrate the beginning of spring, nature’s perennial and powerful rebirth, ben gorham designed a floral scent that would capture the strength and beauty of wild garden blossoms, just as they reach their dramatic peak.

    The result, the wonderfully entitled Inflorescence, is an arcadian stroll through untamed bowers of full-blown, rambling roses, interspersed by the intoxicating, honeyed notes of pink freesias in their prime. 

    Two of spring’s very first flowers lie at the heart; the creamy-soft allure of the magnolia blossom, its petals fully open about to drop onto beds of quivering lily of the valley or ‘may bells’ –in the language of flowers, symbolic of a ‘return to happiness’ and the joy associated with the onset of spring.

    Finally, and most unusually, jasmine is used at the base, again luxuriant and overgrown, a veritable riot of fresh sweetness that supports the structure and furnishes a heady close.

    • Top Notes: Rose, freesia
    • Middle Notes: Magnolia, lily of the valley
    • Base Notes: Jasmine
    • Olfactive Group: Floral

    Oud Immortel - Eau de Parfum

    $ 4.00

    Created around Oud, a certain type of wood that because of its use in traditional incense and perfume has gained great cultural significance and has gotten its existence recorded in one of the world’s oldest written texts – the Sanskrit Vedas from India. When the once light heartwood from the Aquilaria tree becomes infected with a specific type of mold, it defends itself by saturating its core with a dark, highly fragrant, resin. This dark wood, Oud or Agarwood holds a complex fragrance, resembling few or no other natural ingredients.

    Oud Immortel is a woody fragrance where patchouli and papyrus are blended to bring smokiness. The tobacco leaves and moss add depth and complexity while the incense and rosewood bring an elegant, ambery sillage.

    • Top Notes: Lemoncello, incense, cardamom
    • Middle Notes: Patchouli, papyrus, Brazilian rosewood
    • Base Notes: Tobacco, moss
    • Olfactive Group: Oriental
