A graceful rendering of the scent of a single, perfect tulip. What’s
that you say? You don’t recall tulips having much of a scent? You are
not alone. According to Byredo creator Ben Gorham, “A lot of people say
that tulips don’t have a scent, so this is a fantasy based on the idea
of a tulip.” And we agree that this exquisitely realized soliflore of
the imagination is exactly what a tulip should smell like. Clean,
modern and bright, with an intensely floral heart and a bit of green
stem that has broken through the icy ground to start the spring.
La Tulipe captures the slight bit of waxiness of the tulip petals, thanks to rhubarb, and the cool, damp earthiness of the bulb, courtesy of vetiver. It is refreshingly unsweet, and has a clarity and charm that makes it one of our favorites for those days when one just craves a breath of fresh air. La Tulipe is as simple and elegant as a single red tulip in a crystal vase and just as appropriate for any occasion.
|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).|
