The poet Charles Baudelaire, famously a lover of perfume and the exoticism of faraway lands, was by turns cerebral, sensual, perverse, and sentimental. Byredo’s homage to the French dandy reflects this mercurial nature with its multiple olfactory dimensions. A gentle sweetness lies at the heart of Baudelaire, with hyacinth warmed by amber and a touch of fruit. This sentimental center gives way to the aromatics of caraway, patchouli, and juniper berries, with their green whiff of the brisk outdoors. Baudelaire’s base truly provides a counterpoint to its initial warmth, the way that his poetry often launches into philosophy: sensuality gives way to aridity, with a dry, incense-y base of leather, patchouli and papyrus.
Earthy yet worldly, warm yet sophisticated, Baudelaire is as elegant as a dandy’s walking stick.
|How to Use||A perfume can be a delicious whisper that reminds people "I'm here" Make sure your signature scent is saying what you want it to. Apply the fragrance to any of your pulse points, where the warmth of your body helps project the scent more: behind your knees, the inside of your wrists and elbows, at the base of your throat, and behind your ears or diffuse a 'cloud' of perfume in the air and walk through, this will give you an even, all-over scent. Your hair is an excellent perfume carrier (however, never spray directly onto the hair).|
