    My husband wears Pulp, which is linear but has amazing sillage and longevity-- so although it is expensive, at least one gets a lot of use from a bottle.
    He liked Chembur as well but found it comsiderably lighter and with less sillage.

    Yep, they are awesome.

    I have Oud Immortel which is one of my favourite scents. It is a sweet lemon liquor scent mixed with darker woods and oud.

    I am also a fan of Baudelaire which is like Harrods For Him, only executed better.

    Pulp is also amazing, but the sweetness of the fruits may be too much.

    Longevity and projection on these three are fantastic.

    Strange I was just coming on here to see how people rated Byredo! The two I'm looking at are Pulp (the 'rotten fruit' accord that people seem to always mention puts me off it somewhat) and Oud Imortelle. I like the idea of limoncello and our together. Do those of you that own these rate them highly?

    I response to the OP, it's a house I want to get into as you don't hear too much about them.

    My favorites from Byredo, which I occasionally wear are:

    M/Mink - animalic, feral patchouli.
    Sunday Cologne - traditional citrus, grasses, floral wood base.
    Oud Immortel - immortal woods, deep and mysterious
    Mister Marvelous - synthetic refreshment
    SUMMER COLOGNES: Splash of Lemon STH • Dior Homme Cologne • Boudicea the Victorious Oxford • Cedre Atlas • Azemour les Orangers • Oliver Peoples • Sunday Cologne edp • Guerlain Homme L'Eau • Ginepro di Sardegna • Maestrale • Iris Nazarena • Fitnessence • Escentric 02 • Daxon Iridium •

    Pulp is fruity for sure, but rotten? Not a bit of it. It's luscious. If it were a bowl of fruit in front of me, I'd eat it. My husband loves it, and the only thing I'll say against it is that when he wears it, it drowns out anything I have on.

    Pulp can be fun, but as others have said - look out this will knock people down as you pass them. The rest of the line is overpriced mediocrity.

    Gypsy Water is another goodies as well as Pulp and Im itching to try that Bullion one

    M-Mink and Gypsy Water are good. They're a quality outfit generally speaking, they make some nice perfumes, a little pricey but good nonetheless...

    One of my co-workers uses Pulp and apparently likes it. personally tried many in their line but none appealed to me.

    I have and enjoy both M/Mink, Pulp and Gypsy Water. The prices are very high to me, so I have bought 10ml decants of the three.

    I liked Pulp when I smelled it in the shop, but so far haven't found one that I've liked enough even to think about buying. For some reason I can't smell Gypsy Water at all. Tried it twice and nothing. But I would like to go back and try M/Mink again.

    Byredo would like to be something similar to Malle. A pity they are far away.

    I have M/Mink and Fantastic Man/Sunday Cologne, and I really like them both. On the other hand, those two are the only ones from the line I found anywhere near FBW...

    I've tried Green and Fantastic Man. I preferred the latter of the two, but not enough to warrant a bottle. I haven't had a chance to try more of the line.

    You're always going to get differences of opinion over fragrances (I think "Pulp" is fantastic and I never get "rotten" fruit at all). Whilst it's commendable doing research, you're still going to have to make up your own mind. Byredo certainly are on the pricey side, so you'd be best to sample first.

    If you live in or near London, I think Libertys stock the range, otherwise you can buy samples from www.ausliebezumduft. (A first rate German firm with an excellent range and brilliant service).

    I use First in Fragrance (ausliebezumduft) all the time; their products always reach me in a couple of days, which is impressive to say the least. I've gone blind on Pulp and Oud Inortelle this evening; I figured if I don't like them (which I think is unlikely) I can always sell or swap! Compared to some other houses, they're pretty affordable, considering the volume of juice.

    I love Byredo! I only have Pulp, Bal D'Afrique, and Oud Immortel.

    Pulp and M/Mink are love-it-or-hate-it fragrances. Some compare Pulp to rotten fruit. To me, it's syrupy sweet. A little goes a long way with this one--believe me, I've learned my lesson. M/Mink is risque and that's what attracts me to it. Its story intrigues me too.

    I really want Rose Noir (which some say there's nothing "Noir" about it), Seven Veils (a unique gourmand with carrot/orchid), M/Mink, and Palermo (citrus/floral/musk--perfect for the coming Summer!)

    Other than that.... Baudelaire (incense/leather), Chembur (incense), and Sunday Cologne/Fantastic Man (think Terre D'Hermes or Montale's Red Vetiver) are worth a sniff!

    The rest I have yet to sample.

    Hmmm, I really liked Accord Oud and Gypsy Water. They're probably a little overpriced but I would consider these two.

    and also Baudelaire was very interesting IMO.


    The rest were a mixed bag, some good, some not so good but overall it's a line worth sniffing anyway.


    BTW, if anyone's in Canada and wants samples, PM me. They'll be free.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Some nice fragrances some ok and a couple not so good.

    Test as many as you can of course.

    I enjoy:

    Bal d'Afrique
    Baudelaire
    Chembur
    Gypsy Water
    M/Mink
    Pulp

    Still testing the ouds and Rose Noir.

    a fan of Bal d΄Afrique here : a creamy and semi-spicy floral really nice.


    Oud Immortel for me is one of the most awful smells I have ever tried.

    I was given some samples from the Byredo line yesterday while purchasing a some fragrances, inclduding; Green, Gypsy Water, Rose Noir, Sunday Cologne and Encens Chembur.

    Took a sniff of them all on paper and the only two which I found appealing to my tastes were; Gypsy Water and Sunday Cologne.
    Gypsy water is def unisex, but very subtle and pleasing to me, while Sunday Cologne is inoffensive, but more generic to my nose.
    If I had to choose from the samples I have, it would def be Gypsy Water, but I'd have to spray it on my skin for a full day or two before making any judgement.

    Mine arrived a few weeks ago; in the end, I backed out and went for a sample of Oud Imortelle and a FB of Pulp. Glad I did this as I don't like the OI after the opening. Pulp is reasonable. Very good sillage and longevity but very fig-based; I like fig, but was hoping for something more from this.
