In the traditional Indian wedding, flower heads are strung together on
giant leis, including Jaimala garlands which are exchanged between
bride and groom as a token of mutual respect. Couples are often showered
with petals by the groom's brother for spiritual protection. Flowers
are abundant; from the mandap wedding canopy, which is entirely covered
in exotic blooms, to the spiritual pooja rooms and verandahs, the
explosion of colour is wildly celebratory and the scent is overwhelming.
Flowerhead has definitely set our hearts a flutter. It's a bold yet modern white floral; on one hand, it uses the classic combination of sambac jasmine and tuberose for it's floral heart, but without the slightest touch of cream or indole usually associated with white florals. Instead, the dryer aspect of white petals is blended with with a green rose, tart lemon and cranberry. Angelica seed adds a celery-green herbal dimension. Flowerhead doesn't shy away from the the classic white floral silage or volume. In fact we find this to be one of Byredo's most robust compositions yet-- after a slow gorgeous drydown, Flowerhead softens to a lingering wisper of suede and ambergris.
|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).|
