    Bullion by Byredo

    Bullion by Byredo is possibly the most atypical Byredo so far. It still shows a remarkably synthetic edge but it's so nicely blended to result perfectly balanced and "in tune".

    My reading is: Part Daim Blond (the apricot-osmanthus-suedey facets), part Chambre Noir (the leathery-plummy-sandalwood), part Boxeuses (the plummy-woody notes), part Cuir Amethyste (the sweetish fruity leather). Add to this the good side of Tuscan Leather (the saffrony-leathery aspect) and lay it down on a thick, dark and deep woody base. Potentially overwhelming yet so incredibly balanced. Good sillage, great lasting power. Probably not my type of fragrance but etremely well done and accomplished.

    Thumbs up!
