Nice, I have to test those as I'm swedish.
Swedish brand Byredo launch five new fragrances
Byredo is a new fragrance brand from Stockholm, Sweden, that will launch five eau de parfums this summer. Byredo (from 'by redolence') fragrances are all inspired by the memories of founder, Ben Gorham.
Nice, I have to test those as I'm swedish.
Thats fantastic, another niche house -.-
New niche houses are springing up all the time - or at least frags to "enhance" a brand.
Saw a "NASCAR" cologne the other day. About fell over.

Maybe I'll have to take a trip over the border and smuggle some back. Looking forward to reading the reviews!
Is this where the buzz starts?

Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."

They sound interesting. Especially the one that reminds Mr. Gorham of his father's cologne from the 70's!
By the way, Cow should have a counter at the ILLUM in Copenhagen.
From what I have heard only the freestanding COW shop in Stockholm is having the line (since last Christmas I believe), the original world wide launch was planned before the end of last year, but they had some problem with the production and therefore had to delay it. I see that they have changed the shape of the bottles, the first photo I saw looked like this:
From the press release the noses that ByRedo has worked with are e.g. Olivia Giacobetti and Pierre Wulff, so this could be promising. And, also ByRedo has been a company making room scenting products for a couple of years, especially they seem to be specializing on scenting expensive hotel rooms .
Ascella, thanks for the information - this sounds very encouraging. Personally I prefer the new bottle (that remind me of Frederick Malle's) than the older ones (which look like Chanel's - yuk!). I've just requested some samples from them, so I'll be keeping my fingers crossed...
The old one looks like a fusion of Chanel's and Creed flacons. But it looks like a huge, splash version and the new one is the spray version. Just speculating...
Looks like the bottle Ascella pointed out is a 500ml bottle. Would it be possible the 100ml bottle sold at Cow refillable?

Last week they sold them at COW´s counter inside NK.
I liked Chembur best, a soft incense based fragrance, but Rose Noir and Gypsy Water are good too - all are unisex to me.
Just a followup for anyone in or near Copenhagen... Denmark's sole distributor of the Byredo line at this time is at STORM in Copenhagen. Will have to check 'em out!
Here's their reply, after requesting samples from them:
Were glad to hear that you are interested in our fragrances.
I’m sorry to tell you that were don’t have any samples.
The good news is that Byredo Parfums will be availably at Les Senteurs in mid May.

A dirtied up rose? We have Rose 31, Black Aoud, and DC, do we need another? well, I suppose I'll have to try it anyways. because it has the word "Rose". and the word "Black". Clever marketing... They must be hiring people who specialize in Nameology, or at least Symbology. Now get me an onion bagel, cream cheese.

I sampled Rose Noir today, it was beautiful. I think I'll have to get it .
Irrbloss, further reviews please ?
Gahh, dry and clean. I hate how every single company feels the need to use the word black to make things more alluring, and why i'm stupid enough to fall for it every time :P There was me expecting something dark, heavy, overrun with strong notes.
I did sample Rose Noir also, on me it was quite dark and heavy, it got a strong bitter note as well.
Any recent news on these? Their website seems to be non-existent.
My favorite Barney's SA emailed me last night and said she'd sent me "some samples of a new fragrance line that we just received in the store. He is a Swedish designer. " I can only assume it's Byredo... suppose I'll have to watch the mailbox and be patient.
I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!
More writing on fragrance by me to be found at http://www.cafleurebon.com/
Strangely, when I emailed Byredo about Danish distribution, they told me theyre stocked at a huge DS in Copenhagen named "Illum", but Ive never found them there on the 2 occasions Ive visited. When I asked the SA's they just looked at me with disdain, and assured me they had no such thing.
If memory serves me well, I read somewhere recently (I think here on BN) that they're collaborating with a retail outlet whose name escapes me, creating a scent exclusively for that store.
When I tried this line in London, I wasn't particularly wowed.

I got a couple of samples from Les Senteurs.
* Green. Grey Flannel redux. Lots of violet leaf, that is the dominant note. Not very "green."
* Gypsy Water. Big disappointment. No spice or pine that I could detect. Just amber/vanilla.
Not impressed so far.
