With the launch of Mister Marvelous, Byredo's founder, Ben Gorham, has chosen to highlight a male figure who currently embodies his idea of this fragrance. The first ever Mister Marvelous features world renowned hair stylist Christiaan Houtenbos. Marvelous is a grand word, is it not? As it rolls off the tongue, it feels quite like it means. And it has history; France’s post-revolutionary dandies called their equally exquisite ladies Les Marveileuses. Marvelous means wonderful, exquisite, and astonishing. With a bit of strangeness as well – as indicated by the old Latin mirabilis. A marvelous thing must be strange in that it must be like nothing else. We celebrate all of this. Because when things are just a bit off kilter, a little twisted or turned in shape, they become that much more interesting. Such qualities are prima facie for a thing to be called marvelous. For a man to be called Mr. Marvelous. Our hats off to the one and only Christiaan.
|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).|
