After starting as an independent brand in Sweden in 2006, Byredo has become a popular name in the fragrance industry, offering an array of luxurious and unique scents. From floral to woody and musky, Byredo fragrances offer something for everyone across their unisex perfume range. In my view, Byredo is a luxury fragrance brand as they tend to only be sold in high-end stores and a rarely discounted from their high price point.

1. Byredo Gypsy Water

Byredo Gypsy Water is a unisex fragrance that captures the nomadic lifestyle of the Romani people. The scent is a mix of pine needles, lemon, peppermint, juniper berries, and a hint of incense and amber. Personally, I find the fresh lemon note to be the one which lingers and is the most noticeable. With its unusual combination of fragrance notes, Gypsy Water evokes a dreamy, romantic atmosphere which, due to its freshness, I recommend for the day time.

2. Byredo Mojave Ghost

Byredo Mojave Ghost is characterized by a mix of light, transparent and delicate notes, evoking the desert landscape of the Mojave. The top notes of the scent are characterised by a unique Sapodilla fruit note, which is followed by delicate ambrette musk and violet leaf. Together, with ambergris and sandalwood these notes create a soft, woody scent with a hint of sweetness. Mojave Ghost is a classy and mysterious scent which could be worn to pretty much any occasion.

3. Byredo Bal d’Afrique

Byredo Bal d’Afrique is an aromatic unisex fragrance that celebrates the culture and energy of modern African cities. It is a spicy and woody scent, with top notes of lemon and herbal flowers. After this refreshing opening Bal d’Afrique reveals a vetiver and African orange flower heart which is clean and long lasting. This fragrance is both exotic and classic, with a hint of the wild which makes it unusual and interesting.

4. Byredo Mixed Emotions

Mixed Emotions is one of my favourite Byredo perfumes because I love a fruity fragrance! The main note is blackcurrant so this creates a light-hearted opening. This is then followed by an unusual mate note, birch and papyrus; these notes take away any sweetness from the blackcurrant and instead creates a smoky feeling.

Byredo Mixed Emotions is interesting and unique, exactly what you want from a niche fragrance.

5. Byredo Slow Dance

Byredo Slow Dance opens with a boozy cognac note which evokes the feeling of the nighttime. Balmy vanilla and incense and a patchouli base add depth and intrigue to this evening fragrance. I recommend Slow Dance as a date night scent; I think the cognac note is too boozy for the day time!

6. Byredo Lil Fleur

Don’t be fooled by the cute name of this fragrance, Lil Fleur packs a punch. A deep rose note combines with sexy leather and saffron notes alongside a slightly sour cassis.

For me, this leans more towards a female than a male fragrance despite being listed as unisex.

7. Byredo Sundazed

Byredo Sundazed captures the essence of summer with a light and airy blend of citrus top notes which combine with a cotton candy fragrance note. As the scent develops Sundazed reveals a neroli note which creates a green citrus aroma which lingers in a subtle way.

8. Byredo Vanille Antique

Vanille Antique is an exquisite fragrance that captures the luxurious and exotic scent of Madagascar vanilla beans. The top notes of this fragrance open with a sweet and creamy blend of vanilla and tonka bean, intertwined with a hint of lily of the valley. The heart of the scent is a warm and inviting combination of jasmine and sandalwood, which is then balanced with a smooth base of amber and musk. The result is an incredibly sensual scent that is perfect for any occasion. Whether worn alone or layered with other fragrances, this timeless and classic scent will surely become a beloved part of your winter or evening fragrance collection.

9. Byredo Bibliothèque

Byredo Bibliothèque is a unisex fragrance that is sophisticated, refined and timeless. It is a combination of leather, wood and musk, with a hint of sweetness and a touch of spice. The top notes of the fragrance are juniper berry, saffron and pink pepper. The heart notes are leather, patchouli and incense. The base notes are sandalwood, amber, cedarwood and musk. The scent has a warm and inviting aroma that is perfect for any occasion. It is a sophisticated and timeless scent that will last all day.

10. Byredo Rose Of No Man’s Land

Byredo Rose Of No Man’s Land is a modern, romantic scent with a hint of mystery. This unisex fragrance opens with a light and airy combination of Turkish rose and pink pepper, followed by a captivating blend of tuberose and violet. The heart of this scent is an alluring concoction of geranium and magnolia, while the base is a warm and inviting blend of patchouli, musk, and amber. This complex and unique scent has a lasting power that will linger on your skin for hours. Whether you wear it during the day or night, Byredo Rose Of No Man’s Land is a strong and powerful scent that’s perfect for making a statement.
