Byredo La Tulipe
Top notes: rhubarb, cyclamen, freesia
Heart notes: tulip
Base notes: green notes, "blond wood" and vetiver
I just sampled this today, expecting to be disappointed (ultra expensive niche lines have the tendency to disappoint)... and I love it! More than love, I feel like singing and dancing through the field of super bright tulips I'm hallucinating
The tulip is both powdery and bright and matched with what I initially thought was a custard / crumble note but must in fact be the rhubarb making me think "yum, pudding!" by association. And a green flower stem background. I get that same sense of transparency as in the fragrances you get from real flowers - petals whose scent has been freshly released into the air.
Heaven. Now, how to afford a FB...
I'll always make time for cats and roses
