Byredo's latest collection of smart scents is aimed at night owls with a penchant for intense floral fragrances
BY AMY BRADFORD
We thought that Swedish brand Byredo couldn’t get any more luxurious, but its latest creative concept proves us wrong. The ‘Night Veils’ collection is a decadent trio of perfumes inspired by three night-blooming flowers: jasmine, lily and rose. The super-concentrated scents are intended to be worn after dark, and are presented in beautiful Art Deco-style midnight-purple glass flacons to adorn your bedside table. ‘Reine de Nuit’ combines midnight rose with blackcurrant, incense and patchouli; ‘Casablanca Lily’ mimics this exotic flower with notes of wild gardenia, Indian tuberose and palisander wood; and our favourite, ‘Midnight Candy’, is a tribute to jasmine, blended with black violet, iris and vanilla. Florals don’t get more grown-up than this.
