I kind of agree about Blanche and Seven Veils but what the other reviews tell me is that the blogger does not like a few Byredo frags because some (in part) use compositions or accords that were present in other (sometimes departed) 80's - 90's fragrances.
I can understand the frustration, and he's of course entitled to his tasted and opinion, but this still doesn't provide actual fragrances that have been copied and doesn't really support generic as a descriptor.
The review of Baudelaire (which I agree is a poorly named fragrance) completely misses the unusual slightly marine aldehydic underbelly that flips this fragrance from being an easy airy soft-woody aromatic fragrance to one that's more moist, confronting and difficult to understand and wear.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not a huge fan of this house. I just get a little concerned when a whole house is so completely dismissed.
Dismissing Byredo sweeps aside some of the more interesting offerings like M/Mink, Gypsy Water, Bal D'Afrique, Pulp and maybe Chembur.
Anyway, wasn't this erroneous thread supposed to be about Bond?
