The Swedish collection of Byredo Parfums’ Body Care line hit retail in New York in 2010, but it wasn’t until a few weeks ago did I finally purchase the line while on yet another excursion at Liberty. One of my absolute favorites by international perfumer Ben Gorham is “Bal D’ Afrique”, a perfectly layered, almost heady scent that lasts and lasts, as well as garners compliments.
I invested in the Body Wash and Soap Bar; its been fun to use (as well as easy to pack) and both go a long way. The notes of Cedarwood, Musk and Black Amber have me hooked, as well at the clean design and near exclusivity of it all.
Thankfully Byredo can be found in some of my favorite capitals: London, Paris, New York City and Stockholm at our favorites: Liberty of London, Le Bon Marche & Barneys New York’s Beauty level (the only retailer in the City carrying it!) to name a few. Don’t be surprised to see the Founder/Owner himself appear at one of the retail locations, too. More on this soon…
